  1. Here I am writing a post I never thought I would write. This story is definitely a bit confusing but I wanted to share my positive disclosure story. The other day I accidentally disclosed my GHSV1 to my partner by sending a message I was meant to post on this forum (dope). I've been thinking of the right words for ages, where would be the right place and when would be the right time. Due to the social stigma surrounding the topic, I had been feeling super anxious about disclosing so I had been coming on here for advice/support. But as I say, I accidentally sent a paragraph explaining my w

    Anyone from India. Hey!

    Hello, I’m recently diagnosed would be great to make some new friends!
  3. I am experiencing my second GHSV1 outbreak, exactly 1 year after my first GHSV1 outbreak in August 2016. I'm bummed to say the least, but mostly concerned with the way my GHSV1 is manifesting this time around. During my first outbreak, I had the classic prodromal symptoms of itchiness, common flu symptoms, and swollen lymph nodes on both sides of my groin. I had several small-ish bumps, and a group of tiny blisters at the top of my vulva: those seemed to be the only sores that stung and "opened." They also took the longest to heal. -- With my second outbreak beginning yesterday, my sympto
  4. So this is going to be a long one but please stick it out. I’ll be extremely grateful. So after going to my doctors for a general check up due to me having Molluscum (had during childhood, but reappeared when I was 19) he mentioned having a routine STD check. I thought nothing of it and accepted. Everything came back negative, syphillis, chlamydia, ghonnerea and HIV. What I didn’t realise is that herpes wasn’t a routine test and I started looking online about what herpes involved. I was scared and uncertain about my status now beings as the more I read. The more symptoms I beli
  5. This question has been eating me up for some weeks now, but I am wondering how can ghsv1 thrive in a part of the body it isn’t usually suppose to show up on? If HSV1 typically causes cold sores and the virus attacks a specific ganglia area, how can it survive else where? This makes me wonder are the types of HSV important since you can get in orally or genitally?
  6. Hi All, Me and my wife positive for hsv1 igg with value 2.1(wife) and 3.9(husband) tested four times in a year range not changed. We both do not have any symptoms of hsv1. We do not have hsv2 which is always negative. We are trying for baby, and had two miscarriage in the time spawn of 1.4 yr. Is there any relationship between hsv1 positive igg leading to miscarriage?? Anyone faced same issue with hsv1 and miscarriage.

    Just diagnosed

    About a week ago I had some slight burning , & itching a few days after shaving .. I figured maybe it was just razor burn or a reaction to soap or something. NO , within hours , full blown HELL had broken loose . I started googling symptoms , and finally decided to take a look "down there" In my heart, I immediately knew what it was . At this point the blisters had broken open , I was pissing fire , and just generally weak . So yesterday i see my Doc , he takes a look , His reaction confirmed everything. He says hes ordering test to check my IGG & IGM , my partner and I are bein

    Recurring OB ??

    we have both been experiencing cold like symptoms , chills ( no fever) , cough , congestion , body just feels weak . Is this a ob sign ? no new sores have surfaced , except for some vaginal itchiness for me . ( may be a yeast infection from something i used to ease symptoms during previous ob)
  11. Hi All, As we know or read everywhere that 90% of people don't know about they have herpes because they don't get symptoms. If only IgG test getting positive and no symptoms then can we do the PCR test on blood sample?? As symptomless person can not be swabed specially male patient. How accurate PCR test on blood. If someone took treatment by considering IgG positive, if he want to confirm if treatment working or not can be confirmed by PCR on blood?? After treatment as well IgG may take time to go negative but can we check virus DNA particles in blood using PCR?? I have re
  12. I'm a 28 year old male, uncircumcised, no history of STD's. Have only had one sexual partner for the past six years until recently. I'm including an extensive case history, but have also summarized the relevant questions at the bottom. On October 5, 2017, I engaged in kissing, mutual manual stimulation (no genital-to-genital contact), and received a couple minutes of oral sex from a ~25 year old cis-woman. On October 12, 2017, I engaged in kissing and mutual manual stimulation (including penis-to-penis contact) with a ~25 year old trans-woman. In between and immediately preceedi
  13. Hey all-- So last week I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1. My doctor did a swab test. I really was not expecting the results to be positive for herpes, I'm still in shock, scared, and confused. What is really confusing to me is that my doctor while he was doing the swab test said he "didn't see any blister". What I have is very tiny and it feels like a tiny ingrown hair. It is very hard to see even with a flashlight. I went back to visit with my doctor to discuss the results and again he said what he swabbed did not look like a normal herpes blister, but it could have popped or broken, an
  14. Hey everyone, I’ve had ghsv1 now for about 4 years. First initial outbreak had the usual, flu like symptoms, swollen lymph nodes and sores. A swab confirmed it was Hsv1. Haven’t had any known sores or an “outbreak” since that I’m aware of. I take daily 500mg Valcy., vitamin C and lysine. However, it seems like I have almost constant UTI symptoms. Burning when I pee, urge to urinate.. little comes out, etc. General discomfort in the vaginal area. I went to the urologist and of course told them of said hsv1 diagnosis and she seems to think it’s unrelated. She believes it to be In

    New Diagnosis: Gential HSV1

    Hello all, So a week after I noticed my first symptoms around my anus and made a post about it, I just got my swab test back positive for HSV1. Thanks to everyone who responded to my original post. I'm in a really good place right now, on the tail end of a painful outbreak. But now that I have a diagnosis, I'd love to hear other people's experiences about having HSV1 in their genital area. Specifically: I've heard HSV1 outbreaks are less frequent than HSV2. Is this the case? Is anyone on suppressive therapy for HSV 1? I had pretty major blisters up and down m
  16. So I was diagnosed with GHSV1 about five months ago. Even though I ended up disclosing to four of my amazing friends, I was dating a guy prior to finding out that I was a carrier of HSV (he’s not the guy who I got it from) and let’s just say he didn’t take it as well as I thought. Recently, this summer some guy who I’ve crossed paths with on multiple occasions over the last couple of years have come back into my life and we fell in love really quickly. Sadly, we ended up having sex prior to me telling him about this new chapter in my life. Thankfully I did end up telling him (just telling him

  18. Really bummed to see that excision bio delayed all their phase 1 clinical trials especially the HSV1/2 - they had initially been set to start in 2021 now delayed til 2023. I figured with the amazing news surrounding their HIV research that it would have sped up the process, not delay it. Thoughts/opinions on why they may have done this? https://excisionbio.com/pipeline/
  19. it’s coming up on a year since I was infected by HSV1 down there... I am very careful about who I sleep with and I ended up having sex with a fucking pastor... we did it once with a condom. And the second time we didn’t have one. He had no signs of an outbreak or ANY symptoms on his penis... but the night we had sex, I woke up in the middle of the night and immediately had burning when I peed. I thought it could’ve been the beginning of an UTI because I didn’t pee after sex (which I usually do)... but then the next couple of days I was very sick. Flu like symptoms, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,
  20. Hello All, Almost 2 years ago I had protected sex with couple of prostitutes. It was always protected even including oral. After a 4 or 5 days, I experienced itching on my base of shaft and eventually some very tiny blister appeared below the mushroom. After a week after the exposure, couple of red dots appeared on the penis tip and after 4 days disappeared. I had flu like symptoms after a month. After 3 weeks of my exposure, I did some general HSV blood test which turned out to be positive. But everyone in this forum said it is useless test as it was not ELISA and type specific. Af

    Advice for GHSV-1

    So I made it to month four without a visible sign of an outbreak. I had a really bad outbreak in the ending of April and was diagnosed with GHSV1. My initial outbreak took about a month to heal and left scars (a lighter pigmentation from my overall complexion on my genitals). Sadly I have been ridiculously paranoid to the point I have taken two 7 day treatments of Valtrex. More than likely it was probably just yeast infections (I get them way more than I should, even before getting hsv). I also take lysine twice a day and three times a day when I feel like an outbreak is coming on. I’ve been a
  23. June 3rd I may of been exposed to Herpes. Performed oral and vaginal sex with a one night stand. A few days later, "felt off" and got tested on the 7th (negative for all stds, but not tested for herpes) Took a round of Doxycycline the following week around the 14th for a few days as I was feeling extremely Hot and urinating frequently. It seemed to help for an instant, however still feeling off. Tested again n the 28th - Negative for all stds including HSV igg however positive for HSV igm with an index of 1.14 (Positive being anything greater than 1.1) *approximately 26 days a

    First disclosure. PRAY FOR ME

    So I am new to the herpes world. I was diagnosed with ghsv-1 on May 17th. I was dating two guys at once (one I was sexually active with and someone else). The last person I had sex with, I am pretty sure he’s the one that gave it to me. I did disclose to all of my sex partners using text free because I was too embarrassed to reveal myself. But anyway, today I disclosed to the other guy I was seeing when I found out that I was gHSV-1 positive. We have been seeing one another one to two time a week and have planned basically our whole summer out. Even though he wanted to take it slow we are most
  25. Hi! I just want to say how happy I was to discover this site! Being diagnosed can feel so lonely and absolutely NO ONE can even begin to imagine how painful this is. I just want to share the story of how I got diagnosed about 5 months ago and I’ve have three outbreaks since. I am not 100% sure how I got it because I had only been with my current boyfriend who was a virgin before me. I had an outbreak 5 months into our relationship and it was such a hard time because it was right when a very popular tv show I was on started the season. I was secretly having the worst time while all
