Dont know what I am going to do

Recommended Posts

I just found out I have hsv1 genitally. Well shit I have no if I have it orally too. I have never had a lesion on my mouth but who knows. I don't know how long I have had this... But i am miserable and very depressed. I have a 3 year old and I'm so scared about spreading it to her or if I have had this during birth and didn't know it. I am scared no one is ever going to want me... I just feel so worthless and so disgusting. I dont know how I am going to mend from this.

I found out 4 months ago that I have HSV2. Had it for over 10 years before finding out I had it via a blood test. Have never had symptoms. I felt the same way. I just disclosed to the man I'm seeing on Saturday and he completely and immediately accepted it, no questions asked. There are good men out there who are not afraid of it, who understand it, and who are okay with it. You'll find that out when you're ready to get out there and date. I am not going to lie, I was scared to tell him, but he seriously did not care about that at all.

Thank you for replying to me. Do you have kids? I am so glad that you found someone!! If you have never had symptoms you should do a western blot test. You could have had a false positive test.

I do. I have an almost teenager. I considered doing the Western Blot, but the values came back at over 8, and from what I've read, they recommend the WB for those who had results under 3.5. I was still thinking about doing it anyway, but the man I'm seeing honestly does not care if I have it or don't, and I can see myself marrying him, so I'm not going to spend the money. If it doesn't work out with him for some reason, then I might get the WB done just to confirm, but for now, it doesn't matter.

Because I hadn't dated or had sex in over 10 years. 😉

And you didnt know you had it and your kid is fine... Uggh I should just stop freaking out so bad. This stupid thing just has me so scared, especially around my daughter. I just hate that my mistakes can be hers on accident some how. I hate this.

Exactly. I never knew I had it, have shared cups and straws with my kid forever, and everything is just fine.
