  1. Would love to just have a friend to talk too and can share something in common with. I have type 2 hsv. I'm from the east coast of canada. I don't know anyone else with herpes. I feel alone. 20, female, lover of motorcycles and horses but my friend doesn't need to share the same passion.
  2. About 3 weeks ago I had my first herpes outbreak and tested positive for hsv 2. I just had another test result come back which was also a swab, for a yeast infection. Two tests...two diagnosis. Anyone else have yeast infections? Could herpes cause a yeast infection? My herpes symptoms have since cleared up but the past couple days I'm feeling itchy and a little swollen.
  3. Hey. I just got over my first outbreak and I found some days were better than others depending on what I was doing! If I was lazy, my sores didn't feel as swollen. I tried to go out one day and after a couple hours of walking, I felt sore and had to go home. Took me about a 10 days before i noticed the sores were going away and I could pee normally again. But everyone is different! What I find helped me most was putting on some penaten cream. It's super thick and acts as a barrier between the sores and the good non infected skin. It helped me to pee and feel comfortable. Hope this helps!
  4. Luckily, there's not much to learn because herpes isn't a big deal. Just make sure you communicate to your partners that you have it and move forward with having a good life. Also, first outbreak tends to be the worst for most people, and herpes symptoms usually lighten up dramatically after that or disappear all together after some time. Maybe get some Valtrex to calm it down. Thanks for your Reply! I was on valtrex prescribed by my doctor. For my first outbreak they gave me the 500mg 2 pills 2x a day for 10 days. They gave me tons extra too with a dose of 500mg 1 pill 2x a day for 3 days. Is this the most common dose? I just finished my first big intake of them.
  5. It's been just over a week since my first bad outbreak and I'm very itchy around my vagina and asshole. I did have sex with my partner who is also positive for hsv 2. Could this be a cause of the sex or just some leftover symptoms from the first outbreak?
  6. Hey all. So about 2 weeks ago, I could have sworn my life was ending. I was in a great deal of pain and before being diagnosed by a doctor, I internet diagnosed myself (not always the smartest decision) with herpes type 2 aka genital herpes. I have never wanted the internet to be so wrong in my life. It's been a hard go. My first outbreak was a rough one. Full fever and flu like symptoms to not being able to pee due to the insane stinging on the inside of my vagina. It has since cleared up, and ive resumed my regular activities. I ride motorcycles. Hence the title to this discussion. The old bike saying "Wheelies for the feelies" has now been remodeled for my semi humorous personality and a cheesy attempt to bring light to a crappy situation. Anyone else ride bikes on here? I'm from the east coast of Canada. It's beautiful here. We have great beer and great people. Right now, I'm trying to learn how to live and accept herpes. I'm single, I did have a big crush on the guy who gave me herpes just recently but since all this happened, things haven't been the same. He completely ignores the fact he gave me herpes and when I told him I was diagnosed he called me some very mean words that hurt me. We still talk, but I can't look at him the same just thinking about what he did to me and what he called me. I'm not sure what to do at this point. One more thing, since we both have herpes, I have had sex since my first outbreak only once and I feel a little itchy. Is this normal? Maybe I haven't completely cleared up yet. Who knows. Any advice appreciated.
