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.

I contracted genital herpes from my boyfriend 8 yrs ago while in college (now my husband). It was from a cold sore he had while giving oral sex. He didn't even know what a cold sore was. So many people don't realize type 1 can be spread to your genitals. Wondering if this could be ur situation? It's rare to get symptoms 4 yrs later so not likely ur ex. Also men don't always get symptoms so ur bf should be tested too.

It is a possibility u got it from ur ex cause i got it from my kids dad the last time we had sex was n 2004 my first outbreak was n 2007 i know for sure i got it from him cause after him i always used a condom i was scared to get pregnant again plus my dr.

I was diagnosing with type 2 3 weeks ago I got it from unprotected sex with my ex boyfriend it was hard to deal with at first and the outbreak was nearly unbareable. I took mediation for the first one but I'm currently experiencing my second outbreak now its not that bad I'm not going to take medication as I don't want my body to become immune to it. I'm trying herbel remedies like greentea and taking lysine tables seems to be working ok I barely notice the blisters now

There are several natural remedies out there which will get rid of Herpes II. Essential oils applied topically for immediate relief, taken in a vegetable capsule and applied down the spine. Viruses travel up the nerve to the spine and, in this case, reside in the lower section (L4-S1). PubMed.gov has several published articles verifying the use of essential oils against Herpes II. A few are chamomile, oregano, melaleuca (tea tree oil) and melissa. Also, since this is a virus it is important to strengthen your immune system and maintain an alkaline ph balance.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I just got diagnosed yesterday. I never thought that I would be someone to get this infection. I'm always very careful, and you never really hear about it in my town. What's tough is that I feel alone. I have no one to communicate with about it, therefore I am battling this internal self-pity and shame all on my own. Reading what others have to say helps me a lot. You're not alone. What I am going to do is search for natural remedies to avoid outbreaks. Hope you feel better.
