Question: Do you have genital herpes?
Total Votes: 211
I just found out that I have herpes. I freaked out and feel so alone and dirty. I had this yeast infection and found ONE little sore. They swabbed it and it came back positive. I have been with my partner for a year and apparently Herpes can stay dormant for years. My SO was tested and his was negative. So I have no clue where I got it from. I feel so dirty and alone and overwhelmed with the news. It is scary for me.:(
You would need a blood test to see if you have herpes. Some people never have an outbreak. Even a sample from a sore could come up negative if you do have herpes. And herpes isnt a routine STD check.
