Is this a silly question?

Recommended Posts

Hi every1

I found out I have genital HSV2. Is there anyway of tellin if my ex gave it to me from his genitals or from a coldsore? I didn't see any signs of anything when I was with him. I presumed it was from genital to genital contact (even though we used a condom, sigh), but was wondering if there were another way too.

Thanks for readin,

HSV-2 is ususally passed on from the genitals im afraid, the only way you could have caught it from oral is if he has HSV-2 on his face....

Thanks a lot for your answers. I was just tryin to shed light on the situation to make it easier to comprehend, but don't think I'll be able to:( Is it really rare to have HSV2 on face then?

As far as i know yes, HSV-1 is usually on the face and HSV-2 on the genitals but in all honesty i am still learning and coming to terms with having it myself, i had my first OB at the end of november and havent got a clue were i caught it from as i wasnt even in a relationship at the time. Given up trying to guess, truth is i could have had it years and never known about it.

Yes, it's very rare to have HSV2 on the face but it can happen.

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
