HSV-1 genital

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi guys. ive been posting on here recently, and recently posted pictures of my "outbreak" which cleared up pretty quickly. My results finally came back and I am postive for HSV-1. My doctor on the phone told me it is not considered an STD, but obviously since its genital i got it from sex... So idk why she said that.. I was told that HSV-1 does not thrive that well in the genital region and that i am less likely to have outbreaks down there than i would be if it was oral. How often do you guys have HSV-1 genital outbreaks? What do i do when i want to have a baby? How have you guys told your sexual partners? should i be on a daily antiviral? Im honeslty not that upset to actually have it. and i know ill get over it, im just embarrased and afraid to tell my boyfriend because we recently started dating so i dont even think its from him, and im afraid to spread it...

    Does your boyfriend or previous ones have cold sores on the mouth? thats hsv1. You could have gotten it from them giving you oral. i know its crazy but i recently learned that!
