I found out I have H2 late yesterday and have been in tears ever since. I've always been careful and responsible, and at 36, unmarried and seeking a long lasting relationship - this has been a severe blow.
My story isn't unique: Met a guy on Tinder 6 months ago and we had been seeing each other regularly since - albeit not a very serious relationship. He ended it abruptly beginning of December, via text (and blocked me on Facebook and Whatsapp). Only to get back in touch via Facebook on Christmas Day and we've been talking a little. I noticed a sore on NY eve so went to my GP to have it checked and its H2 (swab and blood test).
I just don't know how to let the ex know - we really only communicate via messages (and haven't had much to say to each other - his excuse for ending it so abruptly was that he was falling in love and freaked out!). I know I have to inform him. I'm quite certain it was him who passed it on to me but then after reading so much info online - it could have been someone else or I could have carried it for years so the self-doubt is insane and making me feel worse. I just don't know how to do this! My GP said it was highly likely to be the ex, given that I've never had symptoms before.
If anyone has advice or has had a similar experience - your insight would be so helpful.
Thank you to everyone who has posted stories and advice - its reassuring and comforting to know I'm not alone and that life can go on :-)
