  1. Hi everyone, i just needed to write to just get this out. Usually I don’t have a problem really with dealing with HSV but today is just one of those days. I feel bad, and I guess it happened from reaching out to someone. This morning I decided to reach out to my ex just to check on him but of course that was a dumb decision. He just said basically to leave home alone and I was okay with that but he know I have HSV and I wish I never told him. I just feel at my age, 24 there’s nothing really good to come out of this, and I’m just scared that I’ll be by myself forever and I don’t want that. I hate that I have HSV 1&2 and I wish things could be different but I guess I just need inspiration and reassurance because right now it just feels like there is no point of any of this. I think this is hard because it was February... February 14th last year to be exact when I found out I had HSV. Thanks
  2. Thanks @kinator and @amber1326. I’m taking all of this into consideration. I think I’m going to try the one I have once more to see if I react to it and I’ll try not to shave too close. However, I have been looking at other trimmers that may potentially work better.
  3. I’ve been a carrier since February. It’s more so when I’m laying on my side or if something rubs against it like my underwear/pants, but it’s not my pants all the time. I try to wear cotton or yoga pants. I’ve heard of prodrome symptoms but I’m not exactly sure what that is. However it’s more consistent when I’m applying pressure to that side like when I’m laying down. I don’t normally have an outbreak following, if I do I don’t really notice it. My first one was February when I first became a carrier, the second one from shaving/stress and the last one was from getting in the pool right after shaving which caused irritation. So I can’t say I notice and outbreak right after.
  4. Hi everyone, I have both HSV 1& 2 and I have a question about it. So my first outbreak was in the labia major (outer labia) and even when I don’t have an outbreak if I lay on that particular side or wear a certain pair of jeans it gives me a weird feeling. I’m not sure what that means or what that is. It’s somewhat hard to explain.
  5. Thank you @rainyfeather. Everyday I’m getting stronger and feeling good about the decision to end the relationship because I kept believing and was under the impression that he would be the only one willing to be with me because I have herpes. I have to stop thinking that way because he was just becoming toxic.
  6. Thanks @Dallyd. I can admit that it is the fear of rejection because it took awhile to just get to the level of self-esteem that I have now. Having to say “xxxx, I have herpes” is just an added level of rejection to lower my self-esteem. I can say that I can look in the mirror and still like the person I see, I just don’t know how to properly deliver the message.
  7. I actually have one of those! I used it but I JSU have cut too close honestly. I’ll try it again or I may even buy another one to see how that works. Thank you
  8. Hi everyone, i was diagnosed with HSV 1&2 back in February. Since then I have had 3 OBs however I believe one was due to shaving as I started feeling tingling soon after and decided to take my Valtrex to stop it as soon as possible. I’m so scared to shave because I don’t want to get another outbreak, because I’m really 99.9% sure that was what caused the 3rd one. Do you all shave and how can I prevent having an outbreak when shaving?
  9. @Gina99 you’re right. I would never not let a person know. I would never forgive myself of that. Once I really come to terms with it then I can move to the next step... love & if course for it to find me instead of me searching for it. I’m going to take it slow and focus on what matters right now.
  10. Thanks @Gina99. It is really about self love and self esteem and I definitely do love myself. I’m actually a really good catch! I think the bigger thing is if I do get serious with someone having to disclose this to them and I don’t want to! But it wouldn’t be fair to them because I sure wish the person I got it from told me.
  11. @CatMom. Thank you. I am so appreciative of you. I will make sure to definitely reach out to you. Like right now at this moment I am okay but I know that feeling will come back again but I’m trying to just continue to educate myself and take my life a day at a time without stressing.
  12. Sometimes I don’t know how to feel. Sometimes I am happy and I feel alright but then when I get home by myself the feeling comes back. I’ve been diagnosed with HSV 1 & 2 since February and since then I have had 3 outbreaks. I don’t know if this is enough to classify as doing suppressive therapy but I am just over this whole thing. I am just really down, and I really don’t know what to even say or write. I am official done with my old boyfriend as everything that goes wrong with him or anytime we get in an argument me having HSV is the first thing bought up. He even told me that no man would want me or put up with me because I have herpes. That crushed me, and I never want to talk to anyone again because he really said negative things about me. He makes me wonder if he would spread my business on social media or what could possibly happen. I’m so scared to disclose for that reason. I just don’t know what to do.
  13. Everyone I just wanted to give an update. I’m no longer with my “boyfriend”. I found him cheating and the first thing he tried to say was he risked his life being with me because I have herpes. He told me that he’s been coughing lately and it’s because of me and my herpes and continue to precede to say what man would want me or put up with me with this disease. This completely broke me but I stayed strong in putting him out of my life. I was tired of hearing him say he’s putting his health at risk so I just ended it.
  14. Sunset, You definitely say it best. When we’re together I stay stern on him and tell him that he needs to get tested. I know I can not make him but I think like you, he won’t put the blame on me, when he should have went like I said in the first place! I keep him on board though and I have restrictions when it comes to him because like I would say to anyone, your actions have consequences.
  15. I think so too. I’m not sure what to say about that. I would rather he know but he wants to continue having sex without condoms and protection. It is his choice, well our choice but I rather he be safe, though I know he can still catch it that way. At least his chances would be slimmer.
