@persevere1welcome to the website I am sure we can help you.
Let's back up a little.
It is almost certain you have an oral HSV-1 infection from your childhood. This had nothing to do with your one night stand. Nor is it a reason to give up sex. 70% or more of the world's population have oral HSV-1 and do not give up sex on account of this I assure you!
I also take it you tested negative for HSV-2 at that time.
If you have not had sex since then, then it is pretty much impossible for you to have HSV-2 now. How did you test positive for HSV-2?
lol yes the kind words were for you. I have sifted for hours through the cure research and treatment sections and believe that dr. rider's DRACOs will be a cure for this virus along with many others. check out his website riderinstitute.org and check out the video for yourself; currently he is targeting his research on hsv1 and 2.
When was the last time you had sex with your ex boyfriend and how many days was it from that last sexual encounter until your outbreak (roughly)?
Also, what testing has confirmed herpes or is it visual only?
If you were directing your message to me, then you are welcome, but if not, i feel crazy now lol. And I've been hearing about vaccines and cures, but im not so sure how effective they are. Also, don't be gullable, in the sense of investing into things out of desperation. If im understanding correctly, you're donating to an institute working on a cure for it?
when I contracted , I was wearing a condom . I'm sure I contracted from the skin to skin that wasn't covered by the condom . I have minor outbreaks only in my pubic area . Is it possible that the my penis could not have herpes actively on it or whatever ? And that its only in my pubic area ??
@Keeto be clear, how long has this guy been your only partner, did you have any other sex partners in the two weeks leading into the infection?
If not then there is pretty much no question this partner is the source and hence there are no issues with sex with him, no change in behaviours are necessary.
I think it is important to be clear on type, swabs are generally not typed. What testing did you have?
Hey Lisajd, thanks so much for the info and i have hsv2. I have to follow up to get another prescription. He has gotten blood work and nothing came up but i suggested he get tested specifically for that in about 3 months. Is that good timing, because i was told, nothing really shows up if you go too soon. But yes, he does know the risk for the most part, thats why im doing research to protect him and become more knowledgeable. He accepts them though, but the safer the better.
