really nothing else we can help you with at this point. we have tried to offer support and information to you but you have tunnel vision about this. Your guilt is the issue, not your risk.
get professional help for your depression and anxiety and follow up on any symptoms you have promptly with your doctor.
Will daily use of acyclovir stop transmission if I were have sex with someone who's not infected ?
You need to go see a doctor and possibly a psychologist if you can't get past this. First of all, you probably don't even have herpes, and if you're that concerned then you should go get tested. If you choose not to get the lesions or whatever you have on your legs swabbed then wait three months post exposure and get a blood test to confirm you're negative. The chances that you got herpes especially from this protected encounter are very low.
If you have HSV-1 orally, it's extremely unlikely you'd get HSV-1 genitally. Sure, there's a possibility you could have HSV-1 genitally, and that possibility is probably comparable to the chances of you getting struck by lightning. It's very unlikely you have herpes in the first place, so please relax and be seen if you're that worried.
Is there any possibility I can have HSV 1 and not HSV 2. I have lesions now on my leg in different spots. I'm really stressed out
I know you're just doing your job but that hotline is not going to help me. The only thing that'll help is pill that can get rid of my std forever.. But thanks anyway.. This is the only place I can talk where ppl are going through the same thing Im going through..
Calling a hotline is not going to help take this std away.

I've been up all night it's 730am in California Sunday morning we usually would go to church together but I no longer have her in my life. I should've fully dedicated myself to god along time ago but now it's too late. I get paid this Wednesday Im thinking about buying a hand gun. I'm scared... I don't have anything to live for I don't have kids or anything I have nothing to lose.
What makes having this std is feeling like you're the only one that has it.. I'm living with roommates no family around for support I don't want tell anyone its embarrassing and I know it won't make me feel any better.. All these thoughts are running through my head I don't know what to do.. I just want my life back I want to be myself again.. I'm never going to be happy I can't live with this constant reminder... I just afraid overdosing wont work. I thought about buying a gun at the pawnshop I don't have any felonies I'm sure ill be able to buy one and then it'll be quick.
I'm scared that I might do it because I know in my heart that I won't be able to live like this knowing I can pass this to the people who I love in my life. The symptoms have horrible I wish this on no one they last for over a month feeling sick fatigue painful urination fevers and the list goes on.. I would've rather been shot then to have this std. Some times I wish something did happen to me so I wouldn't have to take my own life
I thought about heaven and hell and how the bible says you'll go to hell if you kill yourself I hope that's not true because I'm a really good person that just made a mistake. I just want to start my life over and have a second chance
I'm afraid of being alone I had the perfect girlfriend that left me I'm very depressed right now I don't want to call any hotline I don't think talking to someone will help me.. They only thing that would help is a cure for this std. I'm messed up big time and now God making me pay for my mistake. I'm afraid if overdosing on my medication because it might just put me in the hospital with kidney fialur and whole list of other things failing or it might work. I'm not strong enough to deal with this.. It's just knowing how I contracted and knowing it could've been prevented. I can't live me life with this constant reminder on how I messed up my life.
No conversation is going to get the std out of me. I don't want to live like this you can infect anyone even your own kids just by touching them.. I don't live me life know that and having to constantly wash my hands and be scared knowing I can infect them them with this.. Who wants to live that way
I thought you can transmit herpes to your partner even if there's no outbreak? I think I have lesions on my leg they look like little clusters of bumps and it burns. Damn I'm so angry with myself one freaking time with a TS and I got this std I have to live with for the rest of my life. I can hid this from anyone in dating the moment i give them this std there going to leave me or if I'm tell them I have they'll leave me. It's a lose lose situation how wants to be with someone who has genital herpes its nasty that's the reality of it I'm just being honest. I'm never going to have a normal life again..
you have convinced yourself that you contracted herpes from this encounter. you are your own worse enemy.
if indeed you do have genital herpes, you will be able to have kids and the risk of infecting a partner is incredibly low even with the simplest of precautions.
you need professional help to work through this.
I won't be able to have kids without infecting my partner.. No will want to be with me. I really don't want to be alone.. I know you're trying to make me feel better and I appreciate that but I know I have herpes type 2 it burns in too many spots both thigh and buttaks even though I don't see any bumbs or anything I know it's herpes. I hope type 1 herpes but that wouldn't make my skin burn. What's the point of living if you don't have anything to live for.
The burnig sensation is in my genatals
usually just a burning sensation without obvious lesions isn't due to herpes.
if you have new symptoms, be seen.
did you talk to someone yet about how you are feeling mentally?
Does HSV 1 cause a burning sensation on your skin or could I also have HSV 2?
most adults test + for hsv1, it's incredibly common. We don't consider it a std when it's oral.
if you feel like you want to kill yourself, call your local suicide hot line or your medical provider to get help.
It gets much better. I promise ! It thought the same thing 9 months ago. Now, I don't even think about it !
I lost everything because of this std.. My girlfriend just left me I don't know what to do anymore. I want to overdose on my BP meds and slow my hart rate down and die
Sucks I don't how I'm going to deal with having herpes 2 if my test results come back positive. I don't want live with that.. Stressed out
I was tested for HSV 1 and 2 I was positive for HSV 1. It burns when I pee and I have a burning sensation around my genitals and thighs. My question is can HSV 1 cause these symptoms or can I have HSV 2 but tested too early to show in my blood work ?
