Who Are We?
Charlotte H was founded in March 2005 as a Yahoo Group whose mission was to provide social and support activities for individuals with HSV1, HSV2, and HPV in Charlotte, North Carolina. Five years later, we have over 1300 members many of whom actively attend events while others choose to lurk in the virtual world to gain the support they need. Either way, members are welcomed to participate in whatever capacity suits them best. As a real Charlotte community and recently as a registered non-profit organization, Charlotte H has made an impact locally to dispel the social stigma attached to these viruses. Charlotte H members from all over the United States come here to find support, anonymity, fun, and friendship.
Charlotte H is a member-run community which provides support and fellowship to adults who have been diagnosed with Herpes Simplex Virus Types 1 & 2 (HSV1 & HSV2) and/or Human papillomavirus (HPV). The organization's goal is to create a safe and fun environment for individuals to heal and grow after their diagnoses. In addition, we actively support HSV/HPV awareness, resources, and education to our local community.
Membership is and always will be Free!
For most people, living with the social stigma of being diagnosed with a chronic STD is the hardest part of living with Herpes or HPV. Approximately 20-25% of adults have genital Herpes, 80% have oral Herpes, and 50% of adults have HPV. However, 90% of people who have these viruses do not know they have them. Both Herpes and HPV are transmitted through
skin-to-skin contact (not through bodily fluids) through oral sex, sex (even with a condom), while the infected person is on suppression
medication, or even when they have never had symptoms at all. "Complete" STD tests rarely test for Herpes or HPV. Therefore, most people have never been tested.
