Hi Kristina. I just won’t say my name. I would like to share my story to you and to all your readers. I’m 17 years old. I’ve had herpes for 6 months already. I’m still trying to recover from the devastation i felt when i learned i had herpes and decided to go for herpes treatments.. The most horrible thing about it is that I got this on the very night i lost my virginity. I never thought I’d be deceived by the boy whom i thought would be the love of my life. He was my very first boyfriend. He was a college student who lived in our neighbourhood. After a few days, I noticed having an itchy feeling down my vagina. I kept washing it but the itch won’t come off. That night I saw my boyfriend and i tried to not show him i wasn’t itchy but then he noticed the marks down there and told me it was herpes. I tried not to believe him but the next day, he admitted to me he had herpes. I cried the whole day. I felt so betrayed. I was so scared because I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know how to tell my parents about it. I had no money and I had no means of getting the medicine for it. I got a part time job and I ordered stuff online. Thank goodness for the internet that i could keep my social life alive. Right now i’m using ___[medicine] It helps lessen the outbreaks. I haven’t had sex ever since that night but I’m seeing this really cool guy in my school. I’m still trying to find the courage to tell him about my situation. I’m hoping he’ll accept me and still like me even after i tell him my condition.
