Just found out Yesterday

Well I just found out yesterday i have H, and had a coupld questions, I had a girl friend for a year before and was wondering if I could have had the Virus in a Dormate state and not have passed it on to her (If thats even possible, I dont know)? If you have it, and its in a dormate state is it a guarantee that anyone you have had unprotected sex will 100% get it?

Thanks

No, it's definitely not guaranteed that someone will get it if it's dormant. But if you believe you had it in a dormant state, it would be appropriate to let them know they should get tested for HSV specifically.

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis :(

yeah I agree with P... if you think you had it then and exposed her you might wanna tell her that you just found out that you have herpes and she might wanna go get tested... be specific and request a herpes test b/c it's not in standard STD screenings...

I'm curious to know what make you go in and get tested.. did you have a recent OB?

According to the info you can see symptoms from 2-20 days after exposure, however not everyone has noticeable or recognizable symptoms or outbreaks.

      He is not a good mate for you because you will go through tougher, much tougher subjects and he is the running type. My guess is that he is not clean himself. what I would give to see his paperwork

      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
