I was diagnosed with genital herpes 2 years ago, being only 17 years old & having only 1 oral sexual partner, I felt my whole world come crashing down when I finally found out the news. It started out as what seemed to be a bladder and bacterial infection, when the doctor told me she was testing for Herpes Simplex I didn't even think twice about it, I mean why would I have? I was still a virgin, I had only had oral sex with one person, my first love. When my doctor told me I had GH, I didn't believe it or even understand. I was so confused and I was in shock. How could this be happening to me? After the doctors I cried all the way to my boyfriend's house, when I got there it took me awhile but I finally told him. Looking back on it I feel so stupid, I remember being scared to tell him because I was worried he would think I was disgusting when HE was the one who gave it to me. He did unknowingly give it to me, but I was so naive about the situation. I just couldn't come to terms with the situation, I refused to accept it. My breakouts were so terrible and painful that i eventually had to start talking Valcyclovir, currently I am taking 1 gram tablets a day and it works most of the time. It took me 2 years to tell my mother, I was ashamed and hurt. She was very supportive and accepting, even admitting that she already had a feeling due to my prescriptions. I use tea tree oil to treat my break outs & it works most of the time but it can be very uncomfortable, a sort of stinging sensation. For a long time I have felt disgusted with myself, everyday I have to carry this awful secret inside me. The only two people who know are my ex boyfriend & my mom. I just feel like nobody will ever want me, it is so hard being 19 years old and having to worry about finding someone who will be accepting and non judgemental of you. I didnt choose this and I wish I could go back in time and be smarter about protecting myself. It is difficult living day to day with GH, knowing I will have it for the rest of my life. Some days are good & some are bad, it would be nice to know I'm not alone in feeling like this.I just wanted to write this to reach out to other young people with GH. I wish I had been more proactive when I first found out but I was so young & so scared that I just pretended it didnt exist. If you are young and this happened to you, it is going to be okay. Although it will never go away, Things eventually get better.

Oh honey... You will be fine.. I was date raped twenty years ago, not only did I have to deal with the trauma, and all the physical and mental damage, but he gave me herpes. In twenty years, I have been married twice, had countless boyfriends and been engaged... I am very careful and have never passed to anyone, and I have NEVER had a man LEAVE me or stop seeing me when I told them. Keep your immune system up, stay away from chocolate, nuts, cokes, and choose your boyfriends very carefully. Don't have sex until you are sure you really (and he really) cares for you... if he does, and you tell him in a very gentle way, things will be ok.. if they aren't then he is NOT the one for you...


Hi, just wanted to let you know not to worry about finding partners. I've had herpes for around 20 years now and have been in 2 long term relationships and dated several other men, as well. I've always been upfront in the beginning and not one man has ever turned away or treated me with disdain. Also, I have never transmitted the disease (as far as I know). Just be careful! I also use tea tree oil whenever I get that tingling and it usually ends up going away. However, when I do get an outbreak, they're really bad and I'm simply miserable the whole time. Haven't been successful at finding anything that seems to shorten the course. :( Anyway, hang in there... You are not alone!! Herpes Simplex 1 and 2 are far more common than people know!


I am 57 years old and had gh for 40 years after much trial and error i use witchazel to relieve soreness and itching nyal cold sore cream camphor/menthol to soothe and heal and an aclovir cream to minimise the duratiin of the attacks this method is effective very soothing cheap and you can live with herpes comfortably no excruciation i swear by it good luck
