2019 Local Herpes Support groups and Secret Facebook Groups

Herpes Support Site, Herpes Support groups and Hpv support groups in your area.


Many cities, states, and countries all over the world have herpes SOCIAL groups and herpes SUPPORT groups for people with genital herpes. Herpes support groups are sometimes named “HELP” support groups  and are occasionally affiliated with ASHA, the American Social Health Association.  Herpes social  groups often use the terms “friends” as in “Bay Area Friends” or “H2O” as in “DC H2O” or “H Club” as in “Atlanta H Club.”   Many cities have just one herpes group that functions as both a herpes support group and herpes social group.

Other Secret Facebook Groups for Herpes and/or HPV -  There are numerous local and national *Secret* Facebook groups for people with Herpes and/or HPV.  One of the largest is called “SWIRLS” – but there are many others.  For the privacy of their members, these groups are hidden, private and require knowing someone who is already a member in the group who can vouch for your “H status” and invite you to join.  It’s best to first join your local/regional herpes/hpv social group and make a few new friends in person, and see who might be in a Facebook group.  Please note that when you belong to a *Secret Facebook Group* - that none of your other non-H friends can see that you belong, and none of the posts or updates from *secret* groups will ever appear on your Facebook profile.  Always exercise caution when posting private information about yourself and other people on the internet.
