Will I Ever Be Happy Again?

I am 17, had been with this guy on and off for almost a year until I found out he had cheated on me when we had gotten into a fight one night. He denied and denied it until I found out the truth in which I didn't talk to him for a short period of time.

One day he invited me over to come talk and of course being dumb I did... And we ended up having unprotected sex like we usually had in the past. Everything was fine until 3 days after I had noticed discharge and itching around my genitals so my mom booked an OBGYN appointment and found one tiny sore near the opening of my vagina.

I thought there was no way this could have been herpes... As it turned out it was Herpes type 2.. I just found out the results today and I feel as though I'll never be able to live my teenage life happily again.. Someone help

Depressed & Hurt But Hopeful

by Courtney

I found out I have herpes about a week ago. I was in denial when I came up with the sores. I thought I cut myself down there and that was all. I am married with two kids and this is the first outbreak.

About 8-9 years ago I had unprotected sex with 2 guys. I did not see any sores on the guys so I figured I was OK. Little did I know anyone could carry the virus w/o symptoms. I never thought that I could have this in my body for that many years and not know it.

When I told my husband, he was upset and thought I cheated. He has been to the doctor and waiting on his results. He is still upset and will not do oral sex ever again. I feel disgusting and nasty. I have looked in to natural detox. I do not want to suppress this.

If detox doesn't work then I will determine the signs before an outbreak to control them. I am hopeful for our sex life to get normal again.
