Living with Genital Herpes – what to watch out for

Hello, my name is Jonathan and Im here to explain my life as it was while I had one of the worst moments of my adult/adolescent life. Dst’s in the whole of our society are greatly misunderstood, not in the sense of how to get or treat one, but in the sense that they are hard to catch or only exist in a promiscuous lifestyle; I said this in the conviction of someone who, without his knowledge, got caught in this disease by someone very dear and pure/innocent to me: my girlfriend.

 

I know what most of you may thing, maybe she did cheat on me

But the thing is, I used to have sex with this girl who I met since I was a 20 and trusted her with all my heart, so obviously I did not used any protection, like a condom for example. We had sex for all two long years of our relationship, but never did I imagined that I need to use condom with her for a second, but that was my wrongdoing. In the second year of our relationship we seemed very happy and all with our lives, but I discovered that I had a Dst by going to the doctor do a check-up, he looked me straight in the eye and told me that it was in some initial case, but I already suspected it since my penis was beginning to look a little different, with some white marks on it. Of course I didn’t knew where this came from, since I never cheated on her, but them I began suspecting of my girlfriend, and there it was, she was cheating on me with a friend in common. You may be asking why Im saying all this, and you’re right in doing so, but I must tell you that this almost fact of us men need to stop, and that is of having sex unprotected just because you are in a relationship of some years; Ive learned this in the hard way, but here am I,sad of course, but cured. The cure was the worst, since I had to take a lot of medicines and my friend down there looked worst than ever now, but as time got by he finally got in his good aspect again and I could have my sex life back, of course with other girls.

The point here is that we should look more after our sexual acts as young people, and that begins in our homes, I never talked with my dad of this with shame of being make fun off, and now I do regret it and blame my family in my stupidity in this, I now promise to myself that in the long future I will take better care of their sexual education, so they are not cheated on.In the second year of our relationship we seemed very happy and all with our lives, but I discovered that I had a Dst by going to the doctor do a check-up, he looked me straight in the eye and told me that it was in some initial case, but I already suspected it since my penis was beginning to look a little different, with some white marks on it.

I of course now am a changed man, without ever trusting anyone the lack of a condom and so should you

Its easy to see when someone is suffering from dst’s, you just need to look for signs on theirs genital organs and pelvic area: some wrinkles or white areas, fluid coming out of vagina or the penis, red marks and anything else that may look suspicious; always keep your guard up on kissing too, it may look like a normal thing with no harm case, but you can catch some pretty bad diseases. Oral sex is the primarily case of catching diseases like HSV without knowing, and in that you should look too, just because there is no penetration, does not mean that its safe, always use a condom and look for signs of DST’s, because the condom is never one hundred percent safe chance.

Sex is fun, but so its having a good health sexual orgam, always look out for your friend down there and he wont fail you, its not worth it one night of sex in favor of your health as a whole, since sexual diseases can become something worse if not treated in due time as soon as its discovered.

  1. I’ve been suffering with Hsv-2 for 3 years now, it is terrible! I know an outbreak is coming when my body continuously aches, which i feel results in me being tired half the time. My Wife understands and helps with anyway she can however I cant help but feel embarrassed. It feels like its out of my control and is just a burden i will have to live with.

  2. About 10 years ago I found out that I had HSV-2. At first I was really tired and grumpy. My lower back was painful for no apparent reason to the point that it was hard to get out of bed. Whenever I had sex I found that it was really painful. I experienced tingling in the area around my genitals. I went to my doctor to find out what was going on and she gave me a test that showed I did indeed have genital herpes, otherwise known as HSV-2. I have learned to predict over time when an outbreak is about to occur. I get so exhausted that I can sleep for 12 hours and still not fell rested. Certain things trigger an outbreak. For example if I eat lots of fatty foods, peanuts or acidic foods they can trigger it. Stress also is a big culprit. I have learned to recognize the signs of an oncoming outbreak and have found ways to prevent it.
