A few months went by and my once small bump turned into large bunch of genital warts that covered my entire private areas.So I went to the local Std clinic and took every STD test they had.I'm posting this because I got better and so many forums I see people talk about the people who get better leave and don't share their story. I got genital herpes after being with my 2nd serious (monogamous on my end) boyfriend. I worked to come to terms with the diagnosis and we stayed together for a while (partly because I thought no one else would want me) My self-esteem was very low but what drove me almost to the point of suicide was the physical pain.Not only was he cheating on me but he gave me the most painful disease I've ever had that almost ended my life... My herpes started out bad and got worse and stayed HORRIBLE for approx. Painful blisters that would bleed, much worse than the descriptions would say.Nothing is scarier than waiting for your test results.While waiting for my results I came to realize even if it comes out positive for genital warts it's not the end of the world. All my results came out negative but they did tell me I had genital warts.
Within a week of using the Derma Off wart cream all of my genital warts were gone.
In the past, type-specific blood tests were not always accurate because they confused other herpes virus antibodies such as varicella zoster (chicken pox), Epstein Barr, or mononucleosis for herpes simplex (Types 1 and 2) antibodies.
Some blood tests can tell the difference between HSV-1 and HSV-2.
Now I just have to continue boosting my immune system so my genital warts don't return.
It's been a life changing experience....because I'm a lot more careful who I sleep with.
