I Have Herpes

Sunday Confessional: I Have Herpes

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

Just as the title says. I have genital herpes.

Imagine turning 19 years old and on your 19th birthday your gynecologist calls you just to tell you that you tested positive for herpes. I found out February 2010 on my birthday. It was pretty difficult.

All my friends know. Even my best friend. Now I have no friends. No best friends. I believe that my boyfriend of 9 months gave me herpes. I had unprotected sex with him and 3 days later a bump appeared on my vagina. I have had three breakouts since then. They are less painful as the time goes on, but the fact that I have it never goes away.

I stay with my boyfriend because I do not want to give herpes to anyone else. My advice to all people out there, use protection, and never trust anyone when they say they don't have anything!

There's lots of great stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!
