How Do You Know You're Shedding??
Well I was dating someone for a month and half and he never told me he had HSV 2 well. We had sex and it was unprotected. He ignored me a week later, I didn't understand why, about 4 days later he called me telling me he was in jail over getting into a fight to help his buddy getting jump from these guys because his friend was trying to flirt with this girl and he said dude she is on PS.. I asked what is PS and he told me oh its another dating site..
Well 2 days after that he just stop talking to me all together. A few days after that I got my first outbreak, at first I thought it was from where I cut myself and it was getting infected well it got worse and I took a picture of it with my phone to see what was going on down there and to my surprise it was ulcer white sores. I was in shock and I stayed up all night looking up and reading about STD's.
I figure it was herpes, so I had wait til Monday to get scheduled into our Health department where I live, I got an appointment the next day. I went in and the nurse did culture on my sores she told me she also thought it was herpes and she never see it so bad on someone. I had over 40 sores, I could barely walk or even eat.
Well a week later my test result was in and I was positive for HSV 2. Now I have been talking to someone and he knows I have herpes and he is okay with it, but I do not want to pass it on to him at all when we start to get more serious. I know if you're shedding you can still pass it on with condoms and I like to know how I would know I am shedding???
