I have had genital herpes since 2015. The symptoms are a strong urge for sexual intercourse and later will l be painful urination. I'm not taking any medication as my immune system helps to heal. During this period I make sure that I avoid any sexual encounter. The blisters do not need to be punctured, leaving them undisturbed helps to heal fast.

With genital herpes I had vaginal itching, trouble urinating, burning during urination, blisters in genital area, tiredness, not feeling well, and feeling depressed and lonely.
