Coming to Terms that i am infected with HSV1 and HSV2 (Herpes)

Recommended Posts

I found out a week ago that i have herpes. I am very happy that my husband is very supportive although i had been unfaithful to him. I was neglected wife and started sleeping around with others. I am still in the midst of facing the fact that i am infected. I feel so ashamed of myself but i have no one to talk to. I feel so miserable. I am unsure if herpes can evolve into HIV without having any sexual contact?

Herpes is a very common condition. Some studies show that over 90% of the planet have some combination of herpes (oral/genital/skin). Herpes cannot evolve into HIV, though Genital HSV-2 can increase the possibility of transmission due to ulcerations and increased T-cells in the area.


In addition, you say you have HSV-1 and HSV-2. Was this determined by serology or swab of a lesion?
