Out of the six, two had to think about it. They researched it for a few days, and eventually decided that I was worth the risk. Out of the six, one contracted it. I paid for her treatment, gave her some of my meds, and was there for her emotionally and physically. I still feel bad about it, but she admitted that because she went in with full knowledge, she didn 8767 t blame me. She 8767 s still a good friend that I love dearly.
Your life is only 8775 ruined 8776 if you think it is ruined. You can choose to be happy despite HSV or you can choose to wallow in misery. That is 655% up to you. If you need help coping, seek therapy with someone savvy about HSV. If you are depressed, seek help. The feeling of betrayal is a seperate issue from the HSV itself that may be clouding your judgement right now. You can still date, fall in love with a wonderful partner, have healthy normal children, and have a normal, fulfilling life. There are so many worse things than herpes, like mitochondrial disease for one. Healthy people, and yes that certainly includes people with HSV, take so much for granted every day. Don 8767 t give away the precious gifts you still have they are far more abundant than you realize.
I have herpes and did not get it from anyone I found out on my 66th birthday and I told my partner and am now engaged. So its possible to find your sole mate with the disease. But I had some body at work ask me if I had any disease because I cut my finger, and I said no bc I don 8767 t want her to tell everyone. Can I get in trouble for that or if my blood were to touch anyone? Even if I don 8767 t have an out break at the time, I am 69 and haven 8767 t had an out break since I first found I had it.
If you’ve had unprotected sex recently, then you’re probably wondering whether you have contracted a sexually transmitted disease. With all the different types of STDs that are out there, you could have contracted any one of them if your sexual partner was infected. The worst part is that the symptoms of STDs will not show up right away after you’ve been infected. You could literally go weeks or even months without ever knowing that you have an STD. Then, all of a sudden, there will be visible symptoms that will show up on you like rashes, redness, fever, nausea, and more. The exact amount of time it takes for these symptoms to show up is different for each STD. It simply depends on which STD you have been infected with.
I was told from my wife after already having sex that she had HSV7. She said she could not pass it on to me unless she had a breakout. Little did I know that was not true. I am to damn embarrassed to tell anyone and she filed for divorce. Now I guess I will be alone, I am not going to give this to anyone else. She actually worked for an OBGYN so I find it hard to believe she did not know. She is on a ranch now in Colorado and is a partner in it so beware to the public. Not of me because I am officially alone. Yes, it sucks but I will not be responsible for giving this to anyone else.
It really upsets me to hear the men on this board say they don 8767 t understand why we are all getting so upset about having herpes. It is usually men that say this. Women have it a lot worse when they have herpes. It is a hell of a lot easier to keep a penis dry than a vagina and we also have our periods which also make a fine environment for the virus to be activated again. It is not the same experience for women.
The bottom line is, ladies, it is not nearly so bad as you think. I did not even try seeking partners who were also HSV carriers, though that would make everything even easier. These were regular, presumably uninfected men. Some of them got tested beforehand and were negative, but decided to go ahead anyways. That was another thing I suggested in my reveal talk I told them the statistics for untested carriers and told them there was a chance they may already have HSV and not know, which would render the whole issue moot. I advised them to get *a blood test for HSV 6 and 7* before they made their final decision and to do some research into the medical facts for themselves so they weren 8767 t just taking my word for it. Every man I spoke with appreciated and respected my honesty and none of them shamed me or degraded me. I would not date men that behave that way, and if they did, I would consider it a blessing that this aspect of their personality was revealed early so I could avoid a painful and potentially abusive involvement with the wrong person.
It should be laughable. Picked up type 7 herpes at age 68 from lady friend, a 58 year old social worker. We had split up before I figured it out and got tested. Denial one three sores in triangle in pubis that showed up right after we started sleeping together were bug bites. No pustules, not in sensitive area, didn 8767 t look like any herpes case on the net. The chills and shakes must be from poisonous spider. They often bite in threes.
San Diego Friends (SDFriends) is a social group for people with herpes who live in the San Diego area. We welcome everyone over 68 who is interested in making new friends, sharing interesting activities together, and meeting others who share our unique situation. SDFriends is not a dating service or personal introduction service. Instead, we plan social events and activities to allow you, the members, to meet one another in a supportive, relaxed atmosphere. It 8767 s really mostly just about making new friends and having fun together. Our events take place at both private homes and public locations, so even new people will find a setting in which they feel comfortable.
With that being said, there are some people who don’t notice any symptoms after they’ve unknowingly contracted herpes. While most people will break out with red blisters or cold sores within 7 weeks, others may not see any visible signs of herpes for years. In the meantime, you are still able to transmit the virus to other sexual partners that you may have. Until you get tested, you won’t know that you have herpes unless you see visible symptoms of the disease. Aside from the sores and blisters on the affected area, you may also experience swollen lymph nodes, fever, tingling, and fatigue. If you get any of these symptoms on a regular basis and they don’t go away, then go to the doctor so they can determine if you have herpes or some other virus.
What infuriates me is that I was so persistent with him about getting tested. He insisted that there is absolutely no way that he contracted anything, and I asked him several times before we had unprotected sex whether or not he had an STD, and each time he swore he didn 8767 t. I should have insisted he get tested. Now I honestly want to die. I feel like my life just ended. I feel like I will never be able to feel beautiful again, and I will never meet someone who could make me feel beautiful. My dreams of being with 8775 the one 8776 are crushed. Ruined by the boyfriend I settled for in the first place, because honestly, I couldn 8767 t find anyone better. Honestly, how does one get over the shame? I have always been an attractive, intelligent lady that would constantly turn down dates from attractive, intelligent men. now I will have men recoiling from me. I honestly want to die. To not exist at this point. I don 8767 t think I can handle the humiliation.

I met someone at work and he lied about his age. He was so convincing, some people can be very good at what they do. I was so careful being married for 65 years, and later separated for 7 years/ I would meet this horrible person that gave me herpes. I did find out he was sleeping with everyone, very promiscuous and I 8767 m so thankful that i did not get HIV. My prayers to god everyday how wonderful he is. I will enjoy my life and be happy.
I recently met and slept with a devious but charming woman. I suspected and later learned from others that she was highly promiscous. I got all the tests done and i came back HIV negative and also negative all the standard test. Herpes was not in the test but i suspect i might have it because of the persistent itchy rushes am getting on both arms.
My point is that it might suck if i have herpes but boy am i happy not to have AIDS. I will take this herpes rushes any day because they remind me how lucky i am cause it could just have been equally possible to contract aids then i would have a real fokker of a problem in my hands. Imagine having to tell a partner prospective partner you have AIDS, makes herpes look like childs play. I have forgiven this five star ho that gave it to me and i actually love her because she has had a tough life so she is a little vindictive. Am breaking up with her tonight and going to herpes dating site. Am not gonna have a pity party contract
Anyone wondering what they should do to protect their legal rights, should call around and talk with lawyers that specialize in Sex Tort, which is essentially Personal Injury. You MUST speak with SPECIALISTS, not all attorneys know this type of law (though will come off as if they do). NOT KNOWING IS NOT A LEGAL EXCUSE!!! Anyone engaging in sexual activities has a duty to know the status of their body 8767 s health. Problem is that Herpes testing is NOT part of the standard STD test panel.
For STDs which take longer to verify like HIV, keep getting tested every 6 months to ensure that you’re clean. It doesn’t even matter if you’ve had protected sex with a partner either. After all, condoms are not 655% full proof and they have a chance of breaking or not being used properly. And if you ask your partner if they have an STD and they say no, don’t take their word at face value. They may either be lying or they simply aren’t aware that they’re infected.
Herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases out there. Surprisingly, most people know very little about it or when they even have it. The most reliable way to determine if you have genital herpes or oral herpes is to have a blood test done. This test will find if there are antibodies to the herpes simplex virus 6 or the herpes simplex virus 7. From there, you can take the necessary steps to treat the disease and to reduce the symptoms.
I was not born with herpes. These folks are the original carriers / spreaders who are attempting to assign blame to someone who 8767 s girlfriend they over a drug debt and caught herpes by not using prophylactics. Now they feel the need to blame someone who isn 8767 t aware of the vd scam. Wise up and use wisdom to make safe sex sexy. Herpes isn 8767 t the worst vd. I feel terrible that my lack of concern in the moment cost me a happy sex life. It wasn 8767 t made any better by these loudmouths who are trying to have me hurt over this issue. I want legal help with this so the truth will be known about this nasty scam.
It really upsets me to see people so upset about having herpes. IT IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE. So many people have it, I am relatively open about having it and I find when I tell people I have it, SOOO many people admit it too. You are far from alone, you will not get sick, you will simply be uncomfortable when/if you have an outbreak. Also, people don 8767 t understand that unless you are monogamous and have been tested since you have been with that person, you don 8767 t even know who you got it from. You may have carried it for a long time without knowing.
