Because I know you’re going to ask, I’ll just say that I trusted a guy more than I should have and believed he was faithful to me when he wasn’t. After my ex and I split up, one day I started feeling what I thought were symptoms of a UTI.
A broken heart is bad enough, but I got a broken heart and genital sores to remember him by. I used to get really bad UTIs, so I called my doctor and was able to get an appointment with her the next day. Then my doctor told me what was wrong: I had lesions on my vagina. When I learned I had been diagnosed with gential herpes, I couldn’t stop crying. My doctor was really patient with me and explained that about one in six sexually active Americans have HSV-2. I thought that since I didn’t have cold sores I couldn’t have herpes, but my doctor explained how herpes virus type 2 (HSV-2) only shows on the sex organs. I spent some time educating myself about genital herpes — and healing my broken heart.
I can say from years of experience that the physical aspect of herpes are not a big deal as long as you take care of yourself properly. You can’t get it from accidentally using my toothbrush or from sharing a Coke with me.
