Genital and Oral infection at same time? Did symptoms appear simultaneously?

Recommended Posts

Ok. I am just devastated. I fee like a total idiot. I have been with my partner for nearly a year now. I am 34 and he is the 5th person I've ever been with. We've been friends for 10 years, and I knew about his H long ago. He is older than me and has had it for 15+ years. We were careful at first, but he is on suppressive therapy, and I guess we just got careless.

Well, just over a week ago we went away.. it was the night of the Obama win- great memories, eh?! We had both vaginal sex and I performed oral on him.

6 days ago I felt as if I had the flu... then 3 days ago I had irritation near my anus... it's the weekend of course, and we live in a very small town and I happen to know many of the health care people... so I'm waiting till Monday to call a clinic in a nearby city. I'm SURE it's genital H... positive.

My big worry (on top of a million others) is that I may have contracted it orally as well?? I have an awful sore throat and swollen glands.. I had a strep culture come back negative...

So, if you contracted both at the same time... did the oral symptoms appear at the same time as the genital?

Oh, I can't believe I let this happen to myself. ..... Please help.. I don't want to look like a monster- especially on my face!

      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 ?
