  1. 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??
  2. 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.

    Strains of herpes

    Lately I've been in this depressive state and it's mainly because of having herpes. I was diagnosed almost five years ago. I take Valtrex almost everyday. I use to take 500mg twice a day. Now I take it once mainly towards the evenings and I honestly feel like it does nothing. I have not been able to suppress this virus. It has been active in my system since I contracted it and I've tried everything in the books to fight/ get it to go dormant. I feel like I have one of the strongest strains of herpes and it's spread to other parts of my body. The reason I say this is because, for the past year or so I've developed other symptoms. I get a tingingly feeling in my back, feels like my spine and closer to my neck. I get these random headaches to the point where my ears start ringing and I have this swooshing feeling in my ears. I get confused and forget what I'm trying to say and my moods have been a lot more irritable. I still get breakouts and flu symptoms. The flu symptoms are swollen glands/ throat. Runny nose body aches and I cough up some nasty phlegm. My neck gets so stiff that can barely move it. I recently did some research on the different strains of Herpes and it lead me to encephalitis. When the virus spreads to your brain and causes your brain to swell. I don't know for sure if this is what o have but I'm driving myself crazy. I have to go to my GYN but the area that I live in your just a number to doctors and it's extremely hard to find a good physician who cares. No one knows that I have herpes so I don't have anyone to talk to about this. I'm sorry for such a long post but I needed to vent. I'm also wondering if anyone reading this has experienced what I have. Or has any experience with stronger strains of Herpes like encephalitis. Thanks for reading. -G
  4. 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.
  5. After 2 days of exposure I notice 1 red dot on glans small one, doctor my frnd said to me to take azithromicine just in case I get so 10 days after I get my self tested and take 4x250 MG of azithromicine same night that I took them I get pink eyes that become worse with blury vision, my test came positive to hsv Combine test igg positive 29.6 Au per ml >2 igm negative., i assumes that it was to early and that is my hsv from childhood i assume, so a become devastated after 10 more days I get this balanitis burn when urinate bladder pain testicle moderate swolen and painfull skin on testicles was also reddish pain I backpain flu like symthoms so I went to doctor he swabbed my urethra and took my urine, in my urethra was find yielded scanty growth of enterococcus faecalis also in my urine they find yielded moderate growth of same bacteria in that time.

  7. So I went to the doctor yesterday and asked was it herpes and my doctor claimed no that it was from shaving and bacteria from the cheap razor.. she pressed down on it super hard and asked did it hurt and I said no.. but this is what it looks like after day 4.. it doesn’t itch.. but it does hurt when my underwear rub against it..
  8. HELLO GUYS. So i decided to write cause i have been really concerned since february.. okay so: In 2016, i had a boyfriend which most of the time we used protection.. i remember that on april of that year i went to the gyn because i was having like some irritation on my labia majora and i thought it was of the Kotex.. i remember that when i peed it burned a little when it touched the irritation. So, she told me i was okay and was a kind of dermatitis so she prescribed a topical cream called TREX used for dermatitis. Later few months, i remember my boyfriend of that time told me that they have appeared like something on his dick. I looked at it and it looked like blisters they were few and they scabbed after we went to the urologist for him and weeks later they appeared again. That i remember i never saw something on me like that. So.. i finished with him on 2017.. i never experienced Anything again that i remember since this year (2019) that from February i started like going to the gym and my pants started incommodating so i decided to look and my labia had a red spot and i started to be really concerned. I remember i felt tingling, pain on the legs, itching.. but no pain. I decided to go again to my GYN and she told me she did not see anything just red,and she prescribed aciclovir topicsl i dont know why..when i putted that i think i felt some kind of the cream hot or little burning .. that was on February.. after that i got really concerned cause i remember of 2016.. i decided to perform a blood test for the first time.in march after going to the dr IIt was igg: 5.6 positive, igm: 0.60 negative i told my dr that and she said well the historial now looks like u have it.. i went again because the discomfort and redness did not go so she told me like okay take valtrex for 5 days.. now in this consultation (2 time going) i saw like some mini blister there. i took that and it was still red i think . Everything was from february to august. I was so confused that decided to do more tests. May 14 on the same lab: igg: 4.2, igm: 0.85 July 9 in another lab: igg: 0.06, igm: 0.25 since i keep having the redness i went to a dermatologist and she prescribed a corticoid for 1 week becuase he told me that wasnt herpes that herpes was blisters so he gave me that for 1 week and ir did not get better.. so the other week i went he told me that it was more like a benign tumour because when he pressed that spot of the labia i felt some weird sensation as electricity and i felt like something on the intern of the labia like the size of a Lentil. After that he told me he was going to inject it with acid hialouronkc botox to see if the redness diminished and it was true, the redness and sensations stopped .. the injection made its job. On july 23 i did another one in another lab; igg: 1.41 and igm: 0.6 August 9 the last exam i did was on the same lab as the 3 one that gave me the negative: the results were: igg: 0.04 and igm 0.228 so my point is that i dont know if i have it or not since i did 5 exams and all were different. Please give me ur advice.. drs have told me that in dont have it or maybe i was in contact i dont know. They told me that igg means past infection and igm recent or active infection. This pictures are not from the months it started they are from later months that it wasnt that red anymore but it kept the incomoddity there

    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 applying tea tree to my genitals everyday since getting diagnosed to dry out any potential outbreaks that are present that I possibly mistake for an ingrown hair. When does the worrying stop? How often have anyone on this forum with GHSV1 get outbreaks? What’s are some good tips and tricks?

    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 definitely sexually attracted to one another and planned on having sex somewhere along the lines. This morning I decided to disclose via text that I have ghsv-1. I gave him some fact/transmission rates and have left everything in his hands. He’s currently at work and asked if it’ll be okay for him to call me when he gets off. Let’s see how this turns out. I am prepared for the worst, but hoping for the best. I will keep you guys posted.
  11. I don't know if anyone else has gone through this, but if your partner has genital herpes and then you were later diagnosed with it (even after using protection), how did you tell them? My partner told me he had genital herpes before we had sex. We've been careful but I have a suspicious itchy blister today, plus am feeling very run down. Making apt. with my doctor in the morning; meanwhile, my partner is out of town. I'm not sure how to tell him if the diagnosis is positive...do not want him to blame himself or be upset because we're committed and he was honest from the start. (And truthfully, right now, I am scared...but I again don't want that to come across as his fault.) Anyone been here before? Thoughts on how to tell him?

    MEDICINE OR NATURAL

    Hello everyone, I tested positive for HSV 1 & 2 yesterday. In these short 24 hours my emotion's have been on a roller coaster. Sometimes I feel like I am normal and I can get over this mentally but then sometimes I break down and cry and feel so nasty about myself and the decisions I've made in life. Anyways I'm not writing on here to throw myself a pitty party but instead to find out what you guys prefer. Do you take medicine if so do you take it daily or just when you have outbreaks? Do you do the natural way and if so what are your recipes? What do you think are the pros and cons to either. I just really don't want to take a pill everyday to remind me of my choices. Any feedback is appreciated.
  13. I got the wonderful virus on my genitals from a guy I dated 5 years. I definitely stayed in the relationship too long because of being scared to have to disclose to someone. I finally broke up with him in 2016. I finally got up the nerve to start dating again about six months ago. In late November I met a guy who I had a lot in common with, got along with, was attracted to, etc, and I could tell he felt the same way about me. (We are both divorced and in our 40s.) So over the course of a month, we got closer and had wonderful times. I could tell he was falling for me and I was for him. On the Saturday before Christmas we spent the whole day together and went to dinner that night then back to my house to exchange gifts. He had bought me a really pretty necklace for Christmas (not too extravagant but sweet and I had picked out a special book as a gift to him.) We had not had sex yet but I knew it would be coming soon so I needed to disclose. He ended up telling me he loved me that night and I told him the same. Then came the disclosure. He just looked kinda stunned then sat with me without really saying much for about 30 minutes. He then gave me a brief hug and said he had to go. He left the book I gave him at my house and as he left, I tried to give him the necklace back because I could tell that everything had changed. He asked me to please keep it. It was the end of the night so it wasn’t completely weird and I figured he was shocked and needed time to process so, while I was very upset, I knew that this was always a possibility. I will admit that I did a terrible job at the actual disclosure. It was my first time and even though I had practiced saying it aloud many times, I know that sounded ashamed and embarrassed. We texted a little bit the next day, mostly with me explaining more about my situation. I explained that in my personal experience, it had not been very disruptive for me. I have only had three outbreaks in six years. I also explained that if someone was with a partner who had it, the partner could take medicine to reduce the other person from getting it. I sent him some links. After that day (the day after disclosure), I did not contact him and he did not contact me. Once again, I figured he needed time. About three days after, he finally texted me saying that he was sorry for the way he reacted. He also said that he loved me and was very sad but according to what he read, he would eventually get it and that he couldn’t knowingly do that to himself and if I ever needed anything to let him know. (I did not see the point in disputing what he “read” on the Internet and how he felt about it. The links I first sent him clearly indicated that was not the case.) Neither one of us wants more kids (we both have them) so it has nothing to do with any issues it could cause in that sense. I basically said “thank u, next” and wished him well. That was the day after Christmas. Fast forward one month to Wednesday, January 23. (We have had no contact at all. We are not connected on social media and we have no mutual friends.) I get a text from him asking how I’m doing. I respond politely and we exchange a few pleasantries. He then asks me if I’m seeing anyone and tells me that he’s sorry for what went on and he really wanted to go out with me again. I say I am confused since for the past month, I’ve accepted the fact that he did NOT want to be with me. He asked if we could just meet to talk, but he totally understood if I said no. I said, sure, I’ll meet you to talk but told him not to have any expectations about us dating again. I said I needed some time and maybe we could meet in a week or so. We texted a little bit yesterday. I told him that I wanted to meet him at the restaurant because I wanted to be sure I could leave whenever I wanted to. He then said, “I cannot apologize enough for how I handled things between us.” I said, “I don’t want to talk about that now.” And that I needed space between now and our meeting next Thursday and I would confirm with him on Wednesday (in other words, do NOT contact me). I want to see if he will honor my wish. Here’s what I need advice on. I have NO experience in dealing with being rejected for this particular reason and none of my friends do either. Is he just a total jerk??? In your experience or opinion, will he ever be truly emotionally supportive? Should I cut him some slack? Should I meet with him at all? Should I meet with him in order to end it with him in person? To begin with, I am a person with avoidant attachment issues. I cut people off and out of my life very easily, many of my friends think too easily. It was a huge deal for me even to disclose to him. Huge deal. I know me cutting him out of my life could easily be justified in my mind and it is my natural tendency to want to do this. I am truly shocked that I actually kept his number in my phone and didn’t block it right after he texted me to end it. The fact that I am actually opening up just a little bit (maybe even to someone who doesn’t deserve it) is major progress for me. I miss him and I still care about him. I really, really thought he would have been one to be okay with the situation from the get-go, but obviously I was mistaken. Help!

    biogetica

    hi has anyone here ever tryed biogetica if so did it work?
  15. Im a 23f and I’ve been hanging out with a 31m for about a month now. We met through a mutual friend and I’ve held off on sex (I don’t just sleep with people). However the main reason is bc I had to disclose that I have Ghsv1. I found out in July of 2017 when I had a sore at the opening of my vagina. I haven’t experienced anything from it since. Negative for hsv2, but positive for hsv1. I disclosed to him yesterday by first asking if he’s ever had a coldsore, he said yes. And of course I felt immediate relief bc it’s like “awesome, he carries the same virus too so there’s no issue.”. I explained that I have it too, but downstairs and how I got it and how it doesn’t effect me at all until I have to have the conversation about it. He asked if it’s something I take medication for and I said I could but mine is already low risk as is. I told him how ghsv1 isn’t commonly transmitted to genitals bc it prefers the oral area and told him how there’s a 4% chance with no condom and 2%. I explained how the stigma is the worse thing about it and how a previous partner never contracted anything from me. He said I dropped a bomb on him and I told him if he’s had a coldsore he carries the same strain. I just have it in a different area and can’t give him something he already carries. He said it’s the same but it’s kinda different. At that point I felt like I was losing an uphill battle. He thanked me for telling him and told me how he’s had chylamidia before and knows some stuff about herpes and outbreaks. I told him its not what it is if he thinks herpes. He told me he doesn’t think any less of me. He said it’s not the end of the world but it is something he’s gonna have to think about and process and it’s gonna take him some time to wrap his head around it and see where that leaves things with us. I asked if i could tell him stuff I’ve found out about it and he said we could talk about it but he’s still gonna need some time to think about it himself which I understand. I told him I hope he doesn’t just go off what he thinks he knows about it. I also hope he comes to his senses and realizes how much of a nonissue it is. I told him it’s nothing to me and he said he wouldn’t say it’s nothing but it’s not the end of the world. I still stayed last night and he didn’t cuddle with me at all. I told him he was already treating me different and he said he’s just trying to process everything and he can’t just act like it’s not a thing. I’m giving him some space and hoping he does research on a reputable site. He’s so nice and I don’t have the best track record and the thought of meeting someone that actually treats me well and it getting ruined bc if this breaks my heart and terrifies me:(

    I disclose right away

    I know some may judge me, but this is how I deal with disclosing. I always disclose btw. For any kind of partner. I only disclose to people that will get affected by it in some way. So only to men I am intimate with. I see no reason to tell my family or friends about it. It does not affect them in any way and honestly, while it's not really a secret, i do try to avoid having to deal with the ignorance of people. I disclose right away. To me, it is best to give the other person the chance to go away at the very beginning before I get attached and hurt. So I bring it up as soon as we start talking. This way they can decide what they wanna do and no one gets hurt. Does it bother me when people decide to move on? sure, it sometimes does, not a lot. But I am human and rejection does sting a bit. But this has worked best for me as a way of protecting myself. To me it is better to be with someone that knows 100% of me and willingly choose to stay. I have no problem answering questions from anyone and I am not looking to pass it to others either. But I do not want to complicate my life more than necessary. We already have enough emotional scarring from this. You guys tell me what you think or what you do.

    Dating sites

    So what sites are you guys considering? I've been on PS for a few months with no luck. I've also been on OKCupid and Bumble but I find myself stalling to actually meet up for fear of " the talk". What are your experiences?

    Well… here I am.

    Hi everyone. I’m still trying to process this but I am a gay male in my late 20’s that was recently diagnosed with HSV-2 in October 2018. I haven’t been sexually active since 2015 and have only engaged in sexual activity with four people in my life. I’m feeling a lot of emotions because of this; sad, angry, confused, violated, ect. Thoughts like who would’ve thought someone like little ole me, compared to all of the VERY promiscuous people in the world, would end up with Genital Herpes ESPECIALLY when I’ve been abstinent and just focusing on myself for years. That was a gunshot to my soul. It’s crazy that I’ve ALWAYS done regular STD testing, thinking I was negative for everything only to find out that Herpes was never included in my testing because I never knew you had to literally ask for that until this year. The CDC and medical industry is so fucked up and wrong for that. I’ve always used protection, except with my first boyfriend but that was back in 2009-2010 and a condom broke with a sexual encounter I had back in 2011 and I remember immediately putting a new one on him. Unfortunately, all of the men I’ve dealt with sexually are questionable. Half of me wants to know who gave this to me but the other half is like what’s the point. I only have access to contact three of them (I don’t know where the other guy is) but I haven’t spoken to two of them in years, one of them in a whole decade and it would be pretty awkward for me years later to write them a message about herpes. My first boyfriend and I are cordial but he’s still immature so it would be very awkward with him. Anyways, as I’ve been thinking and backtracking my life, I would think I caught this back in 2011 because I remember my anus itching so badly but I thought it was just my hair growing back because I do recall shaving before having sex so I guess that was my first outbreak. Other times I would just get a minor itch in and on my buttocks but I never would’ve thought herpes. I’ve never got outbreaks on my penile area. This is all still confusing and baffling to me. I’m still sad and feeling like my future love life was taken from me. I feel like part of my confidence was taken from me. I don’t even feel comfortable flirting and finding people attractive right now. I’m just releasing my thoughts about my situation but I do have questions. My results also came back saying I had extremely low Vitamin D deficiency; does HSV-2 have something to do with that? Is there a test I could take to tell me exactly when I contracted this virus? This question may be TMI but I masturbate and I notice that a lot of sperm doesn’t cum out sometimes, does HSV-2 have something to do with that?

    My Outbreak Story

    Hello, So I finally bit the bullet and decided to make an account. Since I'm a newby who's been dealing with HSV2 for about 10months I thought sharing my story would be a good ice breaker. So I was celibate for 1 1/2yr and I was minding my business at the DMV waiting in line to take my driver's test. When this guy came up to me and asked me how I did ( I failed!!!!). Instead of making me feel like a loser he encouraged me and we had a few laughs in then he asked for my number. While texting I quickly learned we're both scorpios and the sexual tension flourished quickly... After a few dates it happened and it was everything I thought it would be. Well not everything... fast forward a month later I was getting ready for my cruise and i decided to see him a few nights before I left. So I hopped in the shower and shaved my life away and accidentally nicked the tip of my cliterious. (If you're wondering yesss it hurt like hell). But after sitting in the shower for 15mins I mustard up the courage to still go and that it only felt a lil irritable. (BIG MISTAKE) Now I'm in Miami boarding my cruise and felt horrible. All I wanted to do was sleep my life away. I was also cramping b/c SharkWk was in full motion. My lympnoids swelled and became painfully infected, I had a burning sensation when I used the bathroom, and began having flu like symptoms. Finally I decided to get a mirrior and look at my lady bits and seen a lesion on my cliterious and left side lip. I thought it was just infected by my razor. Ignored his texts for the rest of my vacay b/c I didn't know what to think. I waited until my Gyno visit where by 1st sight she already determined it was Gential Herpes. I laughed and told her no way these have to be infected razor bumps. But my Gyno gave me a blank stare and that's when fear seeped in. She swabbed me and 1wk later it came back positive... I told him and he was pretty shocked. I ask if hes been tested and he said yeah but not for HSV2. He felt horrible and wanted to see me that same day but I couldn't. I was too upset at myself, at him, and at life. I thought my world was crumbling and felt like things were unfare. I'm still unsure on who gave it to who. In the beginning I was having 2 break outs per month which lasted 3-4days . Then I've researched my life away and looked into taking natural supplements. So far I've taken Oil Oregano, Spirilina, and Black Seed Oil. I'm only taking Black Seed now and it's making my. OB almost nonexistent. I'm just trying to find ways of making things easier and staying positive along the way no pun intended.
  21. I just found out I have both HSV 1 and HSV 2. I am completely in shock! I wanna say I’ve had symptoms but they were on my genitals and only appeared to be razor bumps to me because they weren’t painful just slight uncomfortable. I would also get cysts down there only after shaving and they would only last a couple days. Here is what I know. The test was IgG and tested for both separate I believe. On the index Herpes 1 is >5.00 and Herpes 2 is 1.27. I’m so confused because I’ve never had obvious symptoms and tested positive for BOTH. Do you believe these tests are accurate. This was a blood test and idk what to do or even think I can’t eat and have just been in bed all day.

    New here

    Hi all I’m a 29 year old nurse. I recently found out I have hsv1 genital from oral sex. This was with a long time male friend. Who may or may not have know ... but he has ignored every message and call since this happened so he has no idea that he has given this t my breakout is just clearing up from Valtrex. I feel gross I feel like my sec life and love life is over and it was something I enjoyed. I’m young I travel the world and I feel like now my chances of meeting the love of my life are over. I’ve been crying in and off even at work lately. Idk how to cope. Does anyone with hsv1 via genitals have advice.. I was so confused at first that hsv 2 came back negative because I thought hsv 2 was strictly genital and vice versa. Any advice, comfort or anything anyone could give me would be so appreciated, I’m very much alone and scared. Thank you ❤️

    I need help.

    I was recently diagnosed with HSV 1 a week ago and the emotional strain has been horrible. I’m the type of person who hates the unknown, so I’m trying to figure out if I have it genitally or orally. I had sex with someone who has been tested for herpes, but he doesn’t remember which strain he has. He hasn’t had an outbreak in years and has taken medicine, so my doctor initially said the chance was extremely low that he gave it to me (especially because it was only for about 1 min and that was it.) I get mouth ulcers regularly and I also get what I believe is a cold sore right in the corner of my mouth (which I’ve read isn’t a real cold sore?) so I’m wondering if that’s why I tested positive. We had sex a month and a half ago, and the symptoms started about a week and a half ago. Burning while peeing, and the occasional itching. When my doctor looked (she also did a Pap smear) she said she saw no lesions which I took as a good sign. I’ve been taking Valtrex for 5 days now but my symptoms haven’t improved at all. I just need people to talk to who know how I’m feeling. Thank you all
