  1. 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
  2. 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.

  3. Hi. I found this forum and could really do with some advice or someone to talk to. A few years ago I caught HSV-2 from my ex fiancé. He had an outbreak of a few sores when we slept together in the very early stages of us dating and told me it wasn’t anything to worry about and he had just caught himself on something. I became ill a month later and ended up in hospital. I was having really bad outbreaks as my immune system wasn’t great, and I still get outbreaks almost each month 4 years later both on my genitals and on my face. The night I remember seeing the sore, we slept together and then h

    Dr's dont know what it is

    I have been going to Dr's for the past 3 years and no one seems to know what it is.. I get all kinds of answers and have spent hundreds of dollars on co-pays.. Please take a look at the picture and tell me what you think... Thanks
  5. Hello, I was diagnosed with hsv1&2 earlier this year. I was prescribed 1g of valtrex (valacyclovir) a day for suppressive therapy. Valtrex helps greatly with my symtoms, but I recently had to leave my job for health reasons and will no longer have health insurance to get prescribed valtrex. Does anyone know where I can purchase valtrex (valacyclovir) online without a prescription?
  6. Hello, Looking for a little advice, thanks in advance to anyone who can provide any. Sorry long post but it's an unusual case..... Although a new member here I am, unfortunately, a veteran HSV2 sufferer, contracted over 30 years ago. Male, 55yo, hetero, married. It has always been an irritant, but liveable, or so I thought, as although outbreaks are frequent the lesions are rarely anywhere that cause a big problem. The virus entered via the genitals, as for most, but after the primary outbreak the lesions are mostly at the base of the spine or behind my ear, occasionally o

    Newly Diagnosed & Depressed

    On Feb 10, I slept with somebody new. I specifically asked him if he had been tested for HSV and HIV via blood test. He told me he had just been tested two months ago and everything was negative and he hadn’t slept with anybody in a year. He either lied to me about being tested or lied about his status. I believe he knew he had HSV2, was not taking antivirals, and didn’t care if he infected me. Now he is using it to make me feel like I HAVE to stay with him because we both have this. And he is minimizing it. I am in pain, depressed, having suicidal thoughts (don’t think I’d act on th
  8. Hey guys I tested HSV 2 (IGG), Type-Spec AB 0.95 (equivocal) back on 2/27. I just retested and received my results today (blood was drawn on Monday) and it’s coming up equivocal again 🤦‍♂️. The results on this second test were HSV 2 (IGG),TYPE-SPEC ABYour Value0.94 Unit: index (NOTE) Index Interpretation ----- -------------- <0.90 Negative 0.90-1.09 Equivocal >1.09 Positive I’ve never had an outbreak and although I’m promiscuous, I do use condoms. The amount of igg detected has dropped by .01 and I’m assuming that if I did have it it should have

    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)
  10. I just tested HSV 2 (IGG), Type-Spec AB 0.95 H index does that mean I am positive for HSV 2? This number falls under equivocal but my doctor said I'm positive based off of this number. Is this true? I’m going for a second opinion and another lab test on Monday. I’ve been feeling tired lately but I think it could be because I’m stressed out from these results. I’ve never had an outbreak.

  12. Does this look like herpes? It’s at the top of my pelvic region. It’s like right where my jeans or sweatpants waistline would sit (like low rise jeans or just slightly low sweatpants). I thought it might be an ingrown hair but I received some hsv2 equivocal results that I just got retested for so ive been on high alert for any change in my genital region. https://imgur.com/BH7zEW5 I added a link because the forum made me compress the file.
  13. 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
  14. Hi guys I’m really confused about what is going on at the moment. I contracted HSV2 11 years ago was outbreak free for 7 years then started getting OBS but very mild around my period I was in a relationship so I went on suppression it will be two years on suppression in May 2019. For I wound say the last year I have had near constant shooting pains down my legs/ feet sometimes in other areas of my body like hands Arms spine soemtimes and around my buttocks I soemtimes even feel it in random places like my head etc. I also get a very itchy and swollen labia minoria soemtimes and
  15. 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 f
  16. 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
  17. 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 go
  18. 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.
  19. 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 researc
  20. 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 com
  21. 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

  23. 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
  25. 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
