My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 2 and a half years now. We split up for about 6 months and during that time the woman he was seeing had genital herpes. We got back together and he did tell me he had contracted herpes. When it first happened I was the only one who knew forever and I was his friend. Not ever have I looked at him as dirty or anything of that sort. About a week ago I started to have my first genital herpes outbreak. I went to the doctor a couple days ago and was officially diagnosed. It is a very severe outbreak. I have never been in so much pain ever and I have had very serious abscesses. I can't stop crying from the excruciating pain. It has caused me to feel sick as I've ever felt! The doctor said I am severely swollen all over including the rectum, I have blisters ulcers and I have limpnoids on the left and right of my bikini line, high fevers, chill, all flu like symptoms, and basically any symptom you can have I have. She gave me a medication I am to take 5 times a day for 10 days. I am having problems sleeping at night and controlling the pain. I am not mad at my boyfriend I love him very much and am happy I have someone who I know will always be by my side no matter what who loves me. He feels horrible and I've been trying to tell him that its not his fault that eventually I was going to contract it. So far the one thing I will say is the most amazing home remedies first of all Oatmeal Baths! Take one when you wake up and one before you go to bed. It helps you tolerate the pain so you can sleep and walk comfortable and it also calms down the swelling ALOT!! For pain and swelling I take naproxen and ibuprofen and when the pain gets really bad I to take a hydrocodone which it has Tylenol in it so it helps bring down my fever and the body aches. If you need medicine to tolerate the pain let your doctor know and they will most likely prescribe it to you. Another method for heat you can use in between baths is a heating pad fold it which ever way you need to in order to cover the areas that hurt. For the stomach and lower abdomen pain I have yet to find a remedy. Food doesn't sound good at all and I can't eat or I get diarrhea. I believe this is a part of the flu like symptoms. And the main thing I wanna say is don't be afraid to seek help and advice! My mom has genital herpes and she has been my biggest supporter and person to turn to for advice. I came on to this website at first and read for alot of advice. I want to thank everyone who shared their stories and gave advice. I hope my advice helps someone who really needs it and lets them know they're not alone!

This is just your initial main outbreak. You should not have another like this again. I've been living with it for 13 years. For a long time I didn't know. I couldn't blame it on anybody because when you have sex you are putting yourself at risk anyway. I take Valtrex sometimes most of the time I just let it take its course. There will be other outbreaks but nothing like the first. Just keep your body healthy and you will be just fine. In the LSAT couple of years I started to get it in my eye. Thinking it was a stye. You have to be careful how you handle your outbreaks. wash hands often while outbreaks occur. It can spread. You can still live your life have plenty of sex and still feel sexy all at the same time. My boyfriend and I still have sex even when there is an outbreak. Just careful about it. We are a monogamous couple and can't see giving it to someone else. You and your boyfriend will make it.
