A few days ago was what I thought to be the worst day of my life, I was diagnosed with genital herpes (HSV-2). I am 19 years old and have not slept with many men nor do I sleep around. I was taken advantage of two weeks ago while intoxicated by a man who I have not spoken to since. Since I have been diagnosed, I have not left my bed because I am in such severe pain. I can barely walk and tried my hardest not to pee because I would cry it was so excruciating. I have been through numerous painful scenarios and have a VERY high pain tolerance but this is the WORST pain I have ever been in. I am sure during your first outbreak or any others, most of you are in the same boat as far as pain during urination. Within the past few days, I have attempted several things to make peeing less painful. I peed in a warm bath tub, I peed in a warm bath tub while holding ice to my sores, I tried standing up while peeing directly into my toilet attempting to avoid the urine from hitting my sores, and I poured cold water down my vagina while peeing. All these methods helped but in the smallest way. Peeing was still IMPOSSIBLE. Finally, I decided to take a water bottle and insert it into my vagina similar to inserting a tampon but of course I do not push it any further than just having the tip of the water bottle entering the hole. THIS HAS BEEN MY LIFE SAVER. I can finally urinate with barely any pain. Unfortunately, I also have the herpes spreading to my anus so I have yet to have any bowel movements because of how painful it is and cannot use the water bottle trick for there lol. But please try this trick for peeing if you are in my shoes!!!!!!!
