:) My name is Loree and I just found this site. I could share a bit of info with you folks. I am 62 years old and have had the same problem as you. It seems as though in times of great stress, I have an out break. Just one small cluster of blisters... OUCH! LOL and always on my butt cheeks...LOL...not funny HUH? They hurt! Anyway, if anyone would like to chat, you have my email address.

Peace, love, and joy!!!!

Hi Loree, welcome to the board, it's a great place to share and participate.

I know that a lot of people here would benefit from hearing your experience with this virus. For example - how did you contract it/how long have you had it, how have people responded to you (romantically or otherwise), what do you do to control the outbreaks and I'm sure a lot more.

Hi Loree!

Welcome from another older chick; I am 63, have had GH for about 14 years. I got it from a long time lover, a guy I was with for 10 years, who cheated on me, caught herpes but did not want to tell me. I found out about it all after he died of lung cancer and I had my first miserable symptoms. I worried about having to tell any guy I might get intimately involved with...that was before I figured out that at my age, I probably won't even be able to get a date let alone get to the point of having to have "the talk." Too much competition, I have found. Guys at my age only have to be one thing to get all the dates they want with women--ALIVE!!!! (LOL). At my age, guys can date women this age plus lots of younger women, too. So I am a little sad about things. However, it did put my silly fear of "the talk" in perspective--if I ever get to the point of having to have that talk, I will be thrilled just to have gotten that far and will not worry too much about that talk, awkward though it may be.

Tell us more about yourself, how you got herpes (if you know), how you deal with it emotionally, what you do to prevent outbreaks etc.

      Morality aside, it could be that your "disclosure" talk is not as reassuring as it could be. With awareness of diagnosis, suppressive meds, and condoms every time, the risk of male-to-female transmission is very low. How low? If you and a female partner were having sex twice a week, it would be a 1-in-600 year event. Assuming precautions are taken, your female partner would be likely to die of old age without ever getting HSV, even of you had sex with her multiple times every day without a single day off for the rest of your life.

      For those of you with GHSV 1 or 2 how did you know you were having a second outbreak? I was diagnosed with GHSV-1 a month ago and have had no symptoms till now. For the past two days I've been super itchy but there are no bumps/ulcers like last time. I read somewhere that some people experience periodic itchiness and no other symptoms so I'm wondering, is this super common and is what is happening to me? Or do I need to prepare myself that this is most likely a second outbreak in it's initial stages?

      We havent cured things not because we can't its because profits are a bigger priority. Trust me when I say I know it sounds like conspiracy talk but look at where and what they throw money at.... sickness is lucrative. So is death (War) The military budget is criminal to say the least, as is Nasa's budget That's just simple math, then look at all the obscene hurdles set in place to help deter anyone from going the distance. They only cry ethics when it comes to anything that could potentially benefit the greater good.

      I think it is very important for you to find out whether you carry HSV-1 or not. If you do, then any concerns you may have about HSV-1 are negligible. Many people carry an oral HSV-1, like your partner. This will be the only region of her body infected, that is the mouth in a practical sense. No contact with the mouth means no chance of infection for you. Hence there are zero issues with vaginal sex and you giving her oral. Kissing and you receiving oral sex are the feasible transmission possibilities. Perhaps the second is of minor concern, but your choice. If you decide you're never going to kiss a girl because she has HSV-1 orally then that will be your loss. Most girls have HSV-1 and all the cute ones!

      I disagree, we have made a significant contribution to keeping it on track and ensuring the OP has the correct information to cogitate upon. Let's keep the good work up!
