3 weeks ago I had oral sex with someone. a week and a half later

I was at dr's office because of painful blisters all over my privates. He did ran a test and I now have it confirmed that I have type 2. When I called the guy I had been with he denied it could have been from him. I don't know if I believe him since my last sexual partner was 4 years ago. Would it be possible for me to go 4 years without any symptoms and then have amajor outbreak? I also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, whih have comprmised my immune system

I have gone through a treatment of valtrex and while I'm mostly healing, I do have one new sore. Do I need to repeat the treatment? I'm going to make another dr's appointment to discuss long tem treatment.

If you only received oral sex, the odds of being infected with HSV-2 are very low. Partly b/c oral HSV-2 is rare, and partly b/c oral HSV-2 is not as contagious as oral HSV-1.

Yes, it's possible you contracted it years ago, and maybe only had very mild symptoms - remember, 80% of those with genital herpes don't realize they have it b/c the symptoms can be very mild and mistaken for other things. And it could be you are having a major OB now b/c your immune system is compromised.

      I am fortunate enough to live near one of the most prestigious hospitals in the USA that rates high in infectious disease diagnosis & treatment. I went to a specialist and asked direct questions including about casual sex. Firstly, I have ghsv1. She said: Casual sex is NOT off the table. When someone chooses to have casual sex, they are accepting the risk of contracting an STI. There is no obligation to disclose in this situation unless going without a condom. The risk is extremely low from a one time protected encounter . Don't do it if you are having symptoms. If you have sex with this person repeatedly, especially if you go without protection then you should disclose. If someone rejects you for it she says he's an asshole and a germaphobe. Because it's no big deal

      I wanted to validate your choice. He saying 500mg. Plus he was saying it was his favorite for HSV.

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      Maybe I should up my intake of olive leaf?
