I had a out break about 2 weeks ago whilst healing i slept with my wife a couple of days after she has been having a sick feeling and vomiting but mostly in morning two times she has had a shooting pain in her belly into her lower back also once or twice feeling a bit run down and having a muscle ache now she has a bad headache feels hot and her breasts seem to be hurting. she has been on the pill for 3 years and never felt like this before is it possible she has caught it or is there any chance something else could be going on.

unheardof

Unfortunately, Herpes is a disease that we carry and can transmit ANY time, even when we don't have any symptoms. I'm not sure what you meant by "healing," but to reduce the chances of transmission it is recommended to avoid contact until fully healed.

That said, the symptoms you have described are pretty general, and unless she develops the telltale signs of Herpes, it's hard to speculate. I know exactly how you feel, as I've made myself sick wondering whether or not I've infected someone in the past. Try to relax, and keep busy if you're feeling preoccupied. If she continues to feel ill, of course she should see a doctor, but don't let your mind get filled with pre-emptive guilt!

Is this possible?

This virus is so sneaky it is possible. But to me - and I am no doctor - sounds like she maybe preggo - even with the pill.

Morning sickness, tender breasts, tiredness are all early pregnancy signs.

Maybe??? Who knows? But if this is the first time she's been exposed to the virus what you are describing could be - vomiting not so much.

If she doesnt develop any lesions, it would need 3 months to pass for a blood test.

Hope she feels better!

she doesn't seem to be pregnant as she came on but the sickness is still there some days but not so much as it was and she feels a bit run down also she doesn't feel herself this has been going on for a month now but was worse at the beginning are any of these signs of catching it.

      Hey all! I’m new and my diagnosis is pending. I’ve done so much research that I have a new understanding and respect for people living with herpes. That being said it wasn’t like that alway, I had been a part of a stigma we all know very well up until my latest annual pap. So I went in and had my pap and just a routing std check. Two days later and my OB calls and says everything’s good on the pap and the bloood work came back but there’s an acute result for herpes. Although he states he doesn’t know which kind or where and to come back in 6 weeks. So me being the 22 yo uneducated student, freaks out. I am asymptomatic and at the time he advises to check around my mouth and lips for any cold sores. I had a minor canker sore like lesion on my gum above my tooth and that was it super minor discomfort. So I went into a care now and the doctor did a pcr swab of the cut and another igm and an igg. So it’s about 5 days waiting period and during that time I get sick, similar to pharyngitis ( it was so bad I went back, the doctor gave me  Valacyclovir in case it was an outbreak). So now I really am thinking ok this is most like HSV-1 being it’s possible but less likely to be HSV -2 And I have zero symptoms on my genitals unless it’s dormant. And then plot twist, I get all results back, second igm, viral swab, and igg and all negative! What is going on?

      Hey @sheikha and welcome to the website. Different tests around the world have different numbers as to what means positive.  Do you have details of what test was performed? Does the paperwork indicate what number means positive? For some tests it’s 1.1, others 11 and some more than 20!

      What symptoms brought you to test in the first place 
    • Mikeike3
      Over 3.3 is a strong positive. You could repeat that test. I'd assume I had it.

      Lysine seemed to dry the blisters during outbreaks.  They would take about the same time to heal but there would be no/less fluid while using lysine.  At first it seemed like it was reducing the amount of outbreaks, but after a couple months they were coming just as often as before - if not more often.
