I’ve had Herpes type 1 on my vagina for 3 Year’s now. I was in a relationship with a man the whole time and now that I’m single I’ve been exploring my sexuality with women but it’s also scary for me. My anxiety is at an all time high when I get physical with women and usually i stop because I’m scared I’m going to give them herpes. Whether I’m licking their nipples or kissing them or getting more sexual etc. I’m scared they’ll get herpes. Does anyone have any advice besides disclose to them? I’m trying to educate myself more on this but it just gets me depressed because I still feel like my life is over. I also want to add Im 19 with one sexual partner.
I’ve had herpes pretty much the entire time I’ve been with my husband. He had never experienced symptoms and neither had I before we moved in together and I first started exhibiting symptoms. I had a swab test on painful vaginal sores and was diagnosed. 13 years ago. We love and accept and are committed to each other. But, the risk of a herpes outbreak often makes me afraid to have sex and I know it hurts us both. My herpes has never really been managed, which I hadn’t even really recognized until recently. I hate the story that people with herpes rarely have outbreaks and their first one is their worst one. I have outbreaks all the time and when they’ve gotten past a certain point they’re uncontrollable and terribly painful. I’m dying for sexual freedom. I also have painful sexual trauma which I’m reminded of during outbreaks and sometimes even sex. I’ve experienced some serious hurdles and breakthroughs but am eager for success. I’d love any help!
