I am a teen with genital HSV1

  • I am a teen with genital HSV1
  • I am only 16 years old and have been diagnosed with HSV1 on my genitals. I was diagnosed when I was still a virgin, which is heartbreaking. My boyfriend performed oral sex on me with a cold sore on his mouth and transferred the virus to my genitals. He ended up contracting it on his genitals as well (I’m guessing from us having sex before knowing about the virus). I just cannot believe that I wasn’t even having sex yet and caught an STD. I always felt that I was a good person and so clean compared to my friends who have had multiple sex partners. It’s been about a month now and I’m still trying to cope with it. Someone please give me some comforting advice, I seriously need to stop thinking about my future with herpes so much. I feel like life will never be the same.
