I've had hsv2 genitally for over 25 years now. My goal is to educate others on the virus so that they don't believe the stigma surrounding it and so that they aren't letting the IDEA of genital herpes control their lives. Life is just too short to give that much power to this incredibly common and for the most part pesky virus!

I have hsv2 and had my daughter by c-section... Recently she cut her finger (not deep) with my shaving razor I used this razor for my genital area, legs, and underarms. I typically won't shave with an OB and when she cut herself I last shaved my legs with the razor. I was very concerned that I had her tested. She was positive by IgM 1.19 the pediatrician said IgM test newly infected and acute infections. I asked her would her being immunized with dtap and hep a vaccine affect the test, because she got those **** right before the blood draw but she said no. Arrrrgh I just don't want this for my child! Prayers needed.... :(
