Are you Female or Male?

How were you diagnosed as having Herpes? Is it GH and if so is it HSv 1 or 2 genitally?

If you were tested do you have a copy of the blood test results and if so can you post just the numeric IgG blood test results on here so someone can confirm your status. If was via a swab did they confirm for you which type it was?

You do not have to live alone even with HSV 2 genitally. There is someone who will love you for who you are even with GH 2.

Start by telling us what really bothers you about having GH? If you can put it inot words then we can help you to move forward and get on with life. Coming to this site is a good step to moving on.

God Bless you as you move forward.

I have had HSV2 for quite some time now. I found a guy who understands and is still with me regardless. We have been in a four year relationship. I found out when I had my first outbreak..I freaked out not knowing what the heck it could be, they confirmed it at the hospital when they did an exam on me they were almost positive that is what it was. And it was confirmed via a blood test. I took TWO blood tests because I did not want to believe it.

I would say...the thing that really bothers me the most about it is the social stigma of herpes.

more people probably have it thank you think who do not even know it.
not long after i was diagnosed my best friends mom found out she had it too.
it sucks, i know..but you will find someone who understands..just make sure you trust them with everything when you decide to tell them, i feared the worst when i told the guy i was seeing..i thought he'd hang up on me and tell everyone... he surprisingly didnt and four years later we are still together..he has NEVER had an outbreak..and we dont even know if he has it or not, never tested.

So from what I read you are in a committed relationship and from what you say things seem to be fine?

It is only a social stigma if you let it get to you. Remember that there are approx 1 in 4 women and 1 in 5 men have herpes so you are not alone.

I would recomment that yo read the article above about "ood telling" if you have not read it. There are lots of feel good stories in it.

Ask any other questions.

Could you please post your numeric IgG blood test results so someone can confirm your status for you to make sure that
you are infact positive for herpes?
