  1. Hi everybody, I'm 27 and I got genital and oral herpes over a month ago from a one night stand I had...I got symptoms within 6 hours after intercourse and we only did oral sex on eachother. For the last month my life has been hell with flu like symptoms and burning in my genitals and feet. I have no insurance at the moment and can't take valtrex indefinitely.I tried planned parenthood but they r too expensive for me and won't help me unless I have insurance....I feel like my life is over. I have been working on agonizing pain and taking painkillers...I also don't think i can ever have a care free sex life ever agian. Just posting to see if anybody can give me info to possibly help me.
  2. 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 read on Mayo clinic that PCR qualitative DNA on blood are effective test for herpes Virus. Please share your opinion. If anyone did PCR on blood found positive?? Or PCR DNA on blood always comes negative??

    Hsv2 oral sex transmission?

    I've been trying to find an answer to this for awhile. I contracted hsv2 orally from going down on a girl a month ago and she gave me oral and transmitted me herpes in my penis. I'm not going to be intimate with anyone until I start taking valtrex daily indefinitely.......I want to know, if I have oral intercourse with another girl and I'm taking preventative meds and not having a outbreak, can I eat her out and she give me oral without a condom and even make out with her and not transmit hsv2 to her?? I hear that daily valtrex drops the transmition rate to another person by 77 percent I read. It's wierd and not fun at all to get head with a condom on, and I can't tell my lady friend that I have herpes or she won't touch me ever again and might tell other people....I always wear a condom for vaginal intercourse anyway, even before got sick with Hsv2 Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for the help!
  4. So I lost my info to my other account but about 3 years ago I was diagnosed with HSV2. Only 17 Had Only had sex less than a handful of times. The close friend I gave my virginity to, my boyfriend I was on and off with due to me breaking up with him, and my first No strings art attached encounter (which was still with a male friend I knew well). Nobody has ever stepped forward to take claim of my diagnosis or to apologize and be accountable. I still remember that night in the emergency room after being in pain for over a week and my mom sitting there telling me if it was serious she "wasn't going to help me" as soon as we walked out the doors that night. Not only that , she cut my phone off the next day so my doctors couldn't call me with my results. They called her so even though I know I have it and took the antivirals to clear it up I never really got that closure from anyone. The people in the ER didn't offer much insight except "It's not life threatening, it's not that serious, and to just wear a condom if I'm having sex specifically during an outbreak but that I wouldn't be having sex during an outbreak because it'd hurt." . After long long nights of losing myself to the mercy of google I stumbled across this site and though some stories completely made me obsess more, I will say it has helped me tremendously. My mother and I haven't talked about my diagnosis since, and so I don't feel comfortable crying to her. IM HAVING MY FIRST MAJOR OB SINCE THAT NIGHT and I can not stop replaying everything in my head and feeling like a complete waste of space. I'm in pain, I can't get the burning to stop. I tried a cooling aloe based gel but if anything it's irritating the skin more, my care team at my hospital is taking a while to respond to help get a prescription in and I just feel alone in all this. I know there's nothing unique about my case and that I should be more than grateful i haven't been having horrible back to back OB's but shit. Like fuck me , I just don't understand.
  5. I had unprotected sex November 16th 2019. I tested positive for HSV2 on December 10th >5 (igg) , retested December 14 and now stated >13.80 (igg quest). Today is December 16th and I have yet to have any symptoms or lesions anywhere. HOWEVER, a Week later after exposure I had a sore throat to where drinking and swallowing was very painful for about a week. I know she Has HSV2 because she told me (deceivingly too late) and I understand HSV2 is rare in the throat but could this be my case? I hope so. No initial OB on my genitals in 30 days since exposure with no medications. p.s I still take no medication.
  6. Hi all, It's been now 24 days since I’ve touched a girl’s vagina and then forgot to wash my hands and about an hour later touched my own private. There was no sex. I’ve been to different doctors explained to them what happened and all say the same, chances of getting herpes this way is minor. today in both my thighs I noticed burning but thought it’s just dry skin because I have been having issues with my skin drying up the last two weeks especially my hands. So I checked tonight and there’s this paper-cut in my right thigh. https://ibb.co/mD0G9FW after doing some research I am a bit freaked out to know that hsv can cause similar symptoms. does this look like something that could be an initial outbreak or could this be to do with something else? Thanks,
  7. This week my pregnancy ended after an ultrasound showed no heartbeat at 8.5 weeks. I had an outbreak just the week before. Naturally I believe that this caused my miscarriage. Everything was progressing perfectly up until that point. This is now my 5th loss and with every miscarriage I had an outbreak within days before. I can’t help but think that this is the underlying cause of it all. All of my doctors have said that the likelihood of the HSV being connected to my losses is rare. But I have also read mixed things online and feel like the medical community is generally uninformed when it comes to this. Can anyone share their experiences with this? It would really help me to hear any stories of successful pregnancies with outbreaks in the first trimester ... or alternatively stories like mine.
  8. Hi all I had an unprotected exposure 14 months ago after 4 months after the encounter i saw a wart on my glans penis my doctor said its HPV and removed the wart with RF. He also said i have candida blantitis and asked to apply antibiotic cream for it ..After this i start getting some small red dots on my glan penis along with painful urination and tingling pain inside my urethra my doctor said i have NGU and asked me to get HSV IGG,IGM sero done ..The results were HSV 1&2 IGG 0.18<, he said its not herpes ..This was after 5 months after exposure ..These red dots used to appear on the glans penis and tip of urethra and disappear after few days ..In septmber 2017 again i had sex with someone using protection before having sex i had these small red spots on the glans and after sex next day they urethra become raw and reddish and when i touched it with tissue it was bleeding and my doctor said to do HSV1&2 again this was almost 12 months after last unprotected exposure this time the result came negative but with higher range 0.64 HSV1 IGG and 0.62 HSV2 IGG My doctor said it is not herpes but we don t have swab options in my country its only the blood test ..Now its been two months since the last test the red dots are appearing all around the glans penis in more numbers plus i also have very bad urethritis burning sensation on urination and sometimes tingling pain ..i am attaching the pictures here can someone tell me is it herpes or something else ..As i am totaly confused is it herpes or something related to the HPV i already have and if its herpes i just don t want to delay my treatment and i will restrain from having sex with anyone as i cannot take the guilty of giving this to anyone ..I don t even wish my enemy get this Herpes ..It just destroys your inner peace of mind ..Can someone here really help me looking at these pictures .. plzzzzz
  9. I was diagnosed with HSV2 in the form of whitlow on the palm of my hand over a year ago. Since then I have had breakouts almost every single month, sometimes more. I take valcyclovir 1000mg daily and had been ob free for a couple of months. I missed one day of medication and am now struggling with a terrible outbreak. My anxiety is through the roof- especially with the fear of viral shedding when I don’t have an ob. When I have an ob I am EXTREMELY fatigued and can barely function. Does anyone else get run down this easily? I know it’s only supposed to happen with the first outbreak but I’m going on 15+ in the last year with terrible side effects. Will I need to wear a bandaid for the rest of my life- even when not experiencing an ob?? I get massages regularly and am always paranoid when they massage my hand that I might spread it to them through viral shedding. The bandaids irritate my skin- does anyone have a better solution to keep my Palm covered all the time? TIA

  11. Hi, Suppose both husband and wife are positive for HSV 2 and symptoms are not present. No treatment going on. Can try for children and have healthy baby without any risk of passing infection to baby?? For sure we will go for C-section delivery but still want to know any risk after this?? I have read in recent studies that baby may get herpes virus DNA from parents in the uterus like other DNA. Is that DNA cause severe symptoms in baby for herpes? Can this virus passes to baby via placenta in mother's uterus?? Please advise.

    Hsv2 on butt?

    I was diagnosed in 2013 with hsv2. back in March, after I went to a public place & used the bathroom, I got a small bump on my butt. (May of been a coincidence but I remember it) Figured it wasn’t my hsv outbreak but still took my meds to suppress it, if it was. Now here we are, 5 months later & it’s gotten worse. More bumps & are on both buttocks. Could this just be hsv showing up in my butt/lower back region? Should I get tested again? Any oral ointment I can take? I take my acyclovir but it only suppresses for my mouth. Doesn’t even seem help for my lower body regions.
  13. This week I went to an Urgent Care with the complaints of vaginal itching.. Today I just so happened to look at my visit summary and noticed that Herpes Virus 8 DNA Real-Time PCR was ordered. Is this test normally used for genital herpes??? I’m confused
  14. Hello everyone. Hope everyone is doing okay with their life. I am from Malaysia. I have done 2 blood tests for HSV1 & HSV2. Both are type specific IgG test. I would like to share my results: My first test Done after 7 weeks of last exposure. *Herpes Simplex Type I IgG : 1.52 (Negative <0.90 Equivocal 0.90-0.99 Positive >=1.00) *Herpes Simplex Type II IgG : 1.34 (Negative <0.90 Equivocal 0.90-0.99 Positive >=1.00) My second test Done after 14 weeks of last exposure. This test was done in a different lab compared to the first test. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type I lgG Reactive Elisa value of HSV type 1 lgG 405.6 U/mL Non-reactive <6.0 Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 2 lgG Non-Reactive Elisa value of HSV type 2 lgG 0.6 U/mL Non-reactive <5.0 I also have a question if anyone is interested to answer. My first test has the result in the form of index value which is pretty much standard to everywhere I see on the net. As my first result has yielded a low positive index values, that was the reason I repeated the test. However my second test is in the unit of U/mL which I can't find on the net. Does anyone knows how to convert from this unit to the standard index value? Thanks for reading.
  15. 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/

  17. Does anybody have any suggestions on how you deal with pain at work or when you are out? I have hsv2 I am in the beginning of a break out this one is bad. I can’t really afford to call in so if anybody has any tips I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.
  18. Hi guys, this is my first post but honestly i´ve been lurking around for a while (lol ikr) Lets get to it. I had unprotected sex with a friend, she claims she´s clean and two months later i noticed this in my pubic area. No itching, no pain, no flu simptoms just these lil fuckers (sorry for coursing) I went to the doctor and he claims thats not HSV2 but i live in south america and honestly i dont trust doctors, i made another appointment with another doctow this week. Also i had blood test done and it came out negative, but im waiting to the 13 week to be sure. Im extremely paranoid and anxious about STD´s so u can imagine im dying over here. Its been around 5 days that hey appeared and havent changed, like i mean they havent became ulcers or crust. Sorry if my English is kind of sloppy its not my native language. I really would love to have an idea of what this is or could be, and what to expect if its HSV2. Im currently dating a girl and i told her about this so were not having sex until im sure i dont have anything, honetly im getting really paranoid.

  19. Hi. We all know that in theory it usually takes 12-16 weeks (sometimes up to 24 weeks) to get positive IGG blood test for HSV2. What are your personal experiences of testing positive for HSV2, i.e. time since exposure? And IGG score? Can you also state if you had HSV1 (oral or genital) and took any Antivirals prior to IGG testing? TQ
  20. Hi everyone . I’m just here to ask a question since I can’t seem to find an answer anywhere. I had unprotected sex with someone who has herpes2 . She stopped me after maybe 20 seconds of me being in her and told me I shouldn’t freak out but she has hsv 2 . So naturally now I’m freaking out. She seemed really confident telling me not to worry and that she hadn’t had an outbreak in years and that she’s had the virus since 16 years ago etc. basically she said I shouldn’t worry but than called me next day to apologize saying sorry I messed up. My question is how likely is it that I cough it from her, she says she was with someone 5 years and didn’t pass to him. But I think she’s dishonest . Also I read here people who have been with someone with hsv2 for years and never got it from their wives. How worried should I be? Thank you for any feed back. Also she takes meds as needed apparently.

    HSV-2

    So I was recently just diagnosed with HSV- 2 , 26 years of age, no signs of symptoms till a week ago. Taking VALTRAX, sores are slowly but surely healing and going away. My question is how have you handled this with your partner? I’ve been completely honest w/ her throughout this entire process, and she seems to be taking it in more roughly than I am. I’ve had the same partner for 2 1/2 years and no signs or symptoms have had ever occurred till now. My doctor said it could have been distress or poor immune system to trigger my flare up. Sexually, what are tips that have helped you prevent these flare ups. New to this so, any advice would be great. Home remedies for further prevention?
  24. Hi there, Long time lurker, first time poster, and I'll keep it simple and condensed. I've only signed up because I realize the depths of suffering some people are in, trying all sorts of desperate treatments, and I've basically been sitting on something that has taken me to near 0 outbreaks (hsv1 genital). When I first got infected some years back, I had an atypical presentation--no pain or itching, but permanently there. Bumps going up and down within the same day even, but pretty much permanently covering the head of my penis. Doctor swabbed it--came back hsv 1; he said it looked like it to him too. Now to the meat of it--rubbing alcohol. Its simple, and I'm pretty surprised that I've only seen it mentioned once here--a woman was talking about it, so I assume it works for girls too. I apply once daily, to once every 3 days, and that keeps me pretty much permanently outbreak free. It quite literally went from every day broken out for me to just about nothing. Anyway, to the what and where of it all... I use 99% isopropyl. 70% seems good too. I now have a spray bottle, but used to just dump it on the head and roll my foreskin up over it for like 20ish seconds--whatever process is actually happening, I like to think I'm facilitating absorption into the soft tissue by doing this and wreaking havoc on the virus. Obviously, you may have to do it a bit differently, genital depending. I've been doing this treatment for a few years now, so it has staying power. I read once that herpes is shreded by alcohol, so if true, I guess that explains it? However, iterupting regular treatment seems to have anecdotally, but not with great surety, made the herpes a bit less suceptible to the alcohol upon resumption. Yes, it burns terribly at first. Over time it gets better. Some days it still really burns, and in those cases I advise listening to your body and cutting the countdown short. Other than that, it feels really damn good to basically tell herpes to eff off. I don't know what kind of health risks there are. Or whether using a high % grain (drinking) alcohol would work / be healthier. I advise asking your doctor--afterall, alchohol is implicated in throat cancer. Who knows if 20-30 seconds daily on your junk can do something too. But for those who struggle constantly, I truly hope this can help someone other than just me. I also hope that this finds its way to the right forum. I wanted it in a place where casual, straight from Google, viewers would see it when they came here, and I'm hoping--and asking, please--that if I didn't get it in the right place, a moderator can instead. And, should it help as I suggest, perhaps even stickying it one day. I'm sorry in advance, I'm not a big forum person and don't come here crazy often. It just felt like something I should do for everyone else's sake. Hopefully you can excuse me if I'm an absentee topic starter. Thanks for reading, - Taylor Edit: I forgot to add in any negative effects I've experienced. Sometimes, if its burning more than usual and I leave it too long, it does make the skin pinker than it should be, and sore. The big question, what about loss of sensitivity? I worried that may happen, and its possible actually that I've lost some amount. But if I have, it wasn't even enough to remember when posting this originally, hahaha. Still every body is different, so I can only speak for me. But yes, for me, my sensitivity down there is still in great shape. Over the last few years I've on average had less stiff erections, and dysfunction, which I never had before. However, I've also been less physically healthy, I've been mentally disengaged and highly anxious around sex and sexuality (and when I'm not anxious, it often improves quite a bit), I read once that herpes itself can actually cause forms of ED, and I'm also now out of my 20's, so... Possibly related? But also very possibly unrelated to the alcohol. I'm biased though, both in mentality and my words here. So, perhaps consult a doctor if you're concerned. Cheers!
  25. So about 2 months ago, I started having unprotected and protected sex with a new person. During this time, I was experiencing a lot of itchiness and some burning. When realizing this, I decided to go to my gynecologist who tested me for all vaginal bacterial infections and all stds. The results came out negative even though I have been having this constant itching and burning on my labia. I have also learned that when I have sex, the itching and burning gets more intense and sometimes my whole vulva would be inflamed for a day or two. My sexual partner also got tested for stds and he was negative as well. I don't know what to do to make this itching and burning stop. I stopped having sex for more than a month now and the problem still hasn't gone away. I keep thinking its herpes even though I got a blood test and never had any kind of sores and my partner has never experienced any kind of symptoms for it. What can I do?
