Asymptomatic and Viral Shedding

Recommended Posts

FLSingleFemale

I am, so far (knock on forest of wood) asymptomatic. According to the info if you are asymptomatic you can still have viral shedding which increases the chances of spreading virus....You should refrain from having sex during OB's/shedding, but if you don't have OB's how do you know when you are shedding? Or am I misreading the info??? And when you are asymptomatic how do you know when it is "safest" or "riskiest" to have sex? Do I just have to assume it is the "riskiest" time until I do have an OB? I don't want to infect anyone so don't want to have sex unless it is a "safe" time (and with Condoms of course), but God, I am missing sex....I'm so confused.....:confused:

That is the messed up thing about this illness. You will never know when you are shedding the virus. It is best to be on suppressants when you are going to have sex.

      Anyone heard of this research before? Dutch professor promoted in September 2017 on it and had some interesting results on patients with severe HSV1 symptoms. (last alinea) "Healing severe cold sore
      Arts achieved a remarkable success in research into three patients with a herpes infection. An infection with a herpes virus is common and leads to, for example, a cold sore. In the three patients, the symptoms were much heavier with ulcers throughout the face. Genetic research yielded three different genetic defects, but functional research showed that all three patients had a shortage of the antibody interferon gamma (IFN-γ). This explained the severe symptoms. A treatment in which the shortage of IFN-γ was abolished, caused the symptoms to disappear like snow in the sun for all three patients." (its in Dutch but you can translate by right clicking)
