i was only diagnosed few days ago so i am still very new to this, i still hate myself for living such a promiscuous life, i am 31years old and i have only had sex without condoms three times in my whole life, just to say I have been very very careful, guess this last one gave me this and i still hate myself for believing her to be clean from all sort of Stds.
I was tested genetically during my first outbreak. I had a sore on my lip but it was nit tested. Genital test came back positive for HSV1. I think my boyfriend had a cut on his lip. He denied having Herpes. But I got it and he was the only one I slept with in years.
Question to counselor Does a guy need to wear a condom if He receives oral sex from me?
I see it is not common to have HSV1 genital. Anything I need to know that is different than HSV2?
So I never got any blistered 20+ years ago or ever. I had what I thought was an ingrown hair, but different. Hung around for 2 weeks and did nothing but disappear. By the time I could get into gyno, it was too late for culture. So he did blood work and said I had herpes. Didn't tell me which one. I thought it had to be something because it showed up the morning after being with my fiancee. Cheating bastard! Anyway, last week went in for a complete STD clearance. All negative but she did not check for HSV. Blood works shows positive even if you had chicken pox, per her. Wth, do I even have it!! I'm reading about people getting bloodwork. So which one do I try to get my PCP to order?
