Hi Im 19 and I was diagnosed with hsv2 only last month, I got a call off the doctor while I was driving and I literally broke down in tears and didn’t know what to do! After speaking to him properly I realised that it wasn’t as bad as it sounded, no one speaks of it because the social stigma surrounding it! Dispute not being so worried about it I’m still left really confused.... I had similar pains back in August, I was in and out of hospital I couldn’t walk, couldn’t go to work for weeks. They ran loads and loads of tests and nothing ever came back about herpes just loads of other things, I was getting bloods done every month to keep an eye on me and not once did they mention herpes. I’ve started seeing someone thing with us started in Septemberish and it’s going well! Randomly out the blue early December I started getting all these pains again and sores started to come back it was really sore but this time I sort of powered on and still got out the house and got on with my day as much as I could without letting on to friend and the person I’m seeing I was in pain, only because I google what it could be! I was praying it wasn’t herpes but unfortunately the tests came back positive...my partner knew I was in pain so we didn’t sleep together he didn’t know as much me obviously, I told him and he took the news a lot better than I thought he would and we are still going strong! He’s been tested but he hasn’t really spoken about it to me. Now the sores have cleared up but I’m constantly scared that I’m going to have to another outbreak, on a night ill go to bed and down there is really irritated but only on a night, I’m not sure if it’s something in my head or if I’m about it have an outbreak. I’m just wondering if any other is experience a bit of soreness still a month after an outbreak. Also if I could have herpes since August and the doctors didn’t see it? I’m so confused?? If my current partner is the one with herpes (he’s says he’s never had anything before and he’s not got herpes or had an symptoms but he will get tested) and it’s lying dormant with no symptoms will it still show up on test results?? Sorry I have such a long story and so many questions!!!
