      Maybe it is related to the immune system being down but I have definitely had cold sores consistently after getting flu shots.    Its not a coincidence.   Also , people who get the Shingrix vaccine also report OBs

      How can GHSV-1 be transmitted genital to genital? How rare is it?

      Apparently there is a soap and a shower gel that has been showing improvement with HSV. This soap is produced in California and is used by some Gynecologist’s.    https://www.authenticvibrations.com/online-store  It’s worth a try.

      Just wanted to provide everyone an update.  I’ve been taking gabapentin for over two weeks now. It seems to be helping, specifically with pain (less severe) and less frequency. I wish I would have done this sooner. I got my Shingrix (first shot) Monday. I know there is a debate over whether or not this has some cross reactivity with HSV 1/2. I’m almost 50 and would need it anyway, so I decided to get it.    I had a red rash near my anus and decided to have it swabbed. While I was there I asked the dr to swab my penis to see if he could pick up any shedding. Both came back negative.    Did another IGG test at 18 weeks, which came back negative.    Next week I have my EMG scheduled and waiting for MRI.  Whatever is happening with my body seems to be nerve related. It is mostly the pudendal nerve and is affecting my butt, anus, penis and legs.  Hopefully I’m coming to the end of my journey. I’ve had a few moments without pain and it’s been awesome. Hopefully I can get my pain resolved and then work with my therapist on how I move forward. I appreciate all of the help, support and feedback. I’m a process guy, so going through this process is really necessary for me to move forward.  I’ll make sure I keep everyone informed as I know many threads like this get abandoned once people get answers. Hopefully this is helpful.

How much do I tell my potential partner about H...?

How much do I tell my potential partner about H...?

For example do I need to tell them all of the possible nasty complications about it, like possibly a newborn becoming infected, or their eyes...?

I don't want to freak them out... :( Help!!!

I don't know how much you need to tell yet on that. My understanding is that it can only be a problem if the primary ob is around the pregnancy or delivery time so you be the judge. i would love more input here from boardmembers.

its a problem with any ob during delivery - c section is routine with any HSV positive mother.

Tell them everything, but I would avoid the less likely negatives for a second conversation on the matter. Too much at once is very scary - be prepared to answer everything and be responsible about it - your knowledge will be comforting - do your homework.
