Then I woke up one morning with pain around my vulva and told myself every possible explanation for what it could be—every reason that it couldn't be an STI. I arrived at the urgent-care center with my thoughts racing and heart in my stomach.
Edited 3 months ago9 users are following. Why is it so difficult to find people who are open minded to the issue? I've had herpes for 9 years and I've had every reaction in the book. People who are disgusted.
People who think it's some sort of fetish. Where are all the normal accepting people?

New discussion Reply. LostnConfused jxo. I am a male and surprising I get the same. I've learned that it's better to start a friendship first no sex and just hangout get to know each other and progress from that point. Once it comes to dating or sex, then I share status and it seem to almost always be a positive experience and not a rejection.
However, not everyone is willing to take a risk once they know what we have and are dealing with. Seem to me the uneducated ones are the rudest and because of lack of understanding, they are not sensitive to the issue. I don't know I'm still trying to find out my dang self. Like it's crazy I didn't ask for this disease and the person that infected me never once let me know they had it.
Otherwise I wouldn't of went for it So I mean can I blame them?? How has your process been with the disease so far?? I think if the person who gave it to me had been honest I would have made sure to be protected but still went for it. Alexinator jxo. Same here, people don't understand this virus so they push us away. The girl who I thought I would end up marrying does not have herpes pretty much just ignores me at this point and moved on.
It is crazy how having this can just turn you into a nobody. Keep faith though, we'll find someone to be with.
Whether or not they have this disease or not. Helpunderstand jxo. Hsv1 is really nothing. I Hsv1 for 10 years. I have not gotten rejected. With hsv 2 might be different. A lot of people do get reject having type 2. It is hard to find someone who can understand the virus.

I went crazy. I just don't understand why some people can't be honest if they have it. I was wanted to hurt that guy. For giving it to me. Do you have a hard time dating because of herpes?
Hey Jxo, I think you are having this for now 9 yearsyou can be a guiding point for many of us, who has got this HSV in recent time. I got this 2 months back and i have couple of questions for you: 1. How has been your love life so far? I don't have nerve pain at all. My love life is ok. I'm happy he expected it. I was concern. I'd appreciate any advice as well. I'm spending time with someone new and we've had a lot of sexual tension. He's tried to take it to the next level and I've just said that I'm not ready to jump into that yet.
I'm a 27 year old female, and was diagnosed with HSV2 5 months ago. I take suppressive medication and haven't had any symptoms since my initial OB. Even my initial OB was more flu-like symptoms and must have been internal lesions since it was painful to use the bathroom but I had no visible sores or anything.
I'm terrified to bring this up and how he might react to it. I've done lots of reading on my own so I know how common it is, but its still hard to think of how to start this discussion -- any advice at all? What types of reactions have you gotten from people over the years, and what is the most common? Contains personal information. Duplicate post.
