Hi.. So, I'm a 22 year old female and I was actually just diagnosed with genital herpes yesterday. I still can't believe it.. I have only been with 2 guys, my current boyfriend doesn't have it so I must have gotten this virus from a boyfriend from almost 4 years ago. My first outbreak started about 4 days ago and developed quite rapidly and I had no idea what it was. Now I'm taking Acyclovir for the next 10 days until the outbreak is over. I'm quite miserable to say the least, I'm too uncomfortable to sit, stand, walk, or even lie down to sleep. I feel exhausted and the medication has curved my appetite so I haven't eaten much. I am drinking a lot of water because you have to with this medication to make sure your kidneys keep working properly. Other than that, I would like to thank all the people who have posted before me, knowing that I'm not alone has helped me a lot. I still have a long road ahead of me before I can accept what has happened to me.
