Hi ynotony,

Sorry, there is no morning after pill for herpes and if you were having an outbreak at the time you had sex, the chances she contracted it are a lot better than if you didn't have an outbreak.

I hope she dodged a bullet but if she starts getting any blisters, sores, yeasty type infections, cuts or major itching in the genitals, she should get to the doctor or clinic within 24-48 of any symptoms appearing and have a viral culture done. This would be the quickest way to find out, if the virus is still on the surface at the time of testing. If the virus is not on the surface , she could get a false negative and will have to have a blood test done.

The most reliable time for accurate results is between 12-16 weeks from possible exposure. Some people will test positive as early as 3 weeks but that is not the norm.

I hope everything turns out OK and that she never gets classics symptoms. Good luck you two.

      The prophylactic vaccine trial by GSK took 8 years and they were still not done with it.  That's because it takes time to see whether it works--it's a matter of many people having sex over time and that just takes a lot of time.   A shedding study is quicker, so therapeutic vaccines are quicker to test.  5-6 years I think.  Note that there was a study conducted last year that showed that there's a high correlation between shedding and outbreaks, suggesting that it might not even be necessary to track outbreaks, measuring shedding may be enough. It's unclear what they would be proving in case of a gene editing technique.  I think shedding would be a part of it.  But what else, if anything, I don't know. Anyway, it doesn't necessarily have to take a long time like the GSK prophylactic trials.

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
