Earth, Wind and Herpes

Hi! I'm a 24 year old city girl who was diagnosed with HSV2 (aka genital herpes) almost three years ago but who refuses to give up on the idea of love (and really good sex) despite it. I've only just begun my journey of self-acceptance, self-love and self-discovery. I hope to chronicle my life relating to the virus and social stigma, create a support system and hopefully be there for anyone going through the same thing.

According to the CDC, 1 in every 6 sexually active people ages 12 and up, has HSV2. One in every two will contract an STC (sexually transmitted condition) in their lifetime. Get informed, get educated and always use protection!

Please check out the FAQs before submitting questions to make sure they haven't already been answered. :)

Note: When asking questions, submitting stories, etc, don't use the word "clean" to refer to people without STDs, as it implies that those who do are "dirty". It's offensive and makes me uncomfortable. I won't answer your question if you use that term.

For us to change the narrative and get rid of HSV stigma, we first have to change our own narrative and start by noting how we unconsciously propagate it ourselves.

My email is earthwindandherpes@gmail.com if anyone ever wants to email me. :)

Have you tried Herpenozilax Remedy?

I Googled it and it seems like a gimmick/scam, honestly. The fact that their site opens up by asking you for your credit card information before it even explains what it is, says a lot. There is no cure for herpes. I repeat.

There is no cure for herpes/HSV.

Whomever says there is is just trying to take your money, and unfortunately the HSV community gets targeted because of the stigma.

I just scrolled down and yep, that’s exactly what they’re doing:

Herpenozilax Remedy is the right choice for you if you are sick of looking for a herpes remedy that actually works and want to learn natural ways to completely cures it safely.

Also, they boast that they’ve been featured by many different media outlets. I Googled “Herpenozilax NPR”, nothing. “Herpenozilax Wall Street Journal”, nothing.

Please don’t waste your money on this kind of crap because it’s just people trying to steal your money, preying on people’s vulnerability. It’s disgusting.
