This is the first time I've ever spoke/written about this, I was dx with hsv2 when I was 19, I'm now 30, not 100% sure how I got it, but really, does it matter? The first OB was so awful & painful, I couldn't pee for 2 weeks without taking a cup of warm water & poring it over me while I peed. The OB DO GET BETTER! In the past 10 years I typically have OB maybe 1-6 a year, I'm positive they're triggered by stress. I always know it's coming by a weird tingling sensation always on my right side/down my right leg. I always get it at the same spot, on my skin, kinda close to the line of where your underwear touches your thigh.
It's actually not painful at all, but super annoying!
I've come to consider it like getting your period, it's there for about a week, it's annoying, and you can't have sex. Mine start off as a red mark, turn into a small cluster of blisters (like 3-4) then scan & go away.
What I've found works to help it go away faster, is LOTS of lysene, (cheap vitamin at grocery store), & everytime I use the bathroom I'll hold a cotton swab to the area soaked with either hydrogen peroxide, witch hazel, or alcohol. I heard Epsom baths are great too.
I'm having an OB right now & I took the advice from this site of using a liquid bandaid (found at dollar general for 3$) I applied it over the blisters, used the bathroom 2 hours later & they already started to break down! Usually before this, I'd just typically wait for them to go away but this new treatment is working out great!

I just wanted to say that when I read these comments of young teenage girls getting hsv and feeling scared, disgusting, shameful, etc. my heart breaks for you, I was once you & it feels awful. But please know as I'm telling you from experience, this is not the end of your life!!! It's really just an occasional annoyance that you'll learn to deal with over time. I met my husband 9 years ago & told him (also told ppl before him) & never was I 'rejected' for it. I've also never passed it to my husband or anyone & I've had 2 healthy children in the meantime (by c-section). Also wanted to note - I'm a nurse...this is VERY common, it's just no one likes to talk about it unless they have to.
So if you're new to this and struggling, please know it does get better, I even forget half the time I have it cause it really doesn't effect my life in ANY way. If you feel sad/scared, please comment and I'll give you my contact info if you need any type of support or a friend to talk to!

This post is so refreshing. I have never been officially diagnosed with herpes. I had what I assume to be an outbreak in November. I was too chicken to get tested because I didn't want to be a statistic. I guess it doesn't matter because if you have it, you have it. I haven't had any symptoms since November, and I pray I never have another outbreak again in life. I swear by urinating via warm water, tea tree oil, and BikinZone after shave gel which contains lidocaine. If you guys start a discussion group, please let me know.

Hi I'm 23 and I've been diagnosed with hsv2 about two months ago. I got it from my bf at the time who now wants nothing to do with me. He still hasnt got tested and i believe he's in complete denial but thid is the most horrifying thing I can think of to have to endure. I've tried honey ,oil of oregano ,and apple cider vinegar. I'm currently going threw an outbreak that's much worse than the first! I'm in my last year of college and between finals, coping with having herpes, and trying not to strangle my ex it seems utterly impossible to remain stress free. So this outbreak has me crying every night in the bathroom trying to keep it from affecting me while I'm with my family so I won't have to deal with the embarrassment of having to tell them. I've been sleeping with a cotton swab soaked in vinegar on my blisters overnight. It relieves sone of the pain and itching but every morning I wake up with a new sore and the old ones just turn yellow or white and become really raw. I'm super numb down there. I don't know what to do anymore. Could it b because it's wet all night is why it's not healing? Please help me I'm lost and the longer it stays the more depressed stressed angry and embarrassed I become. Pls help.


My question is to the nurse that says she has it...if you and your husband both have it, can you have children?
