WILL she get it??

Recommended Posts

livingadayatatime

My husband is cheating on me and he has herpes. He knows this obviously since he INFECTED ME YEARS AGO. But now he's "in love" with someone else. I feel certain he has not told her and does not use protection. He rarely has outbreaks, like maybe one a year. How long before she gets it? Please tell me soon!

No one can answer your question with certainty, I'm sorry. It's a crap shoot.

The thing about herpes is it's all about chance at times. Some people get herpes from having one sexual encounter with a person...and others have been married for years and does not give it to their spouse. Or someone could be dating for months and not pass it on until after a year. It depends on if he is having sex while he is shedding the virus...and it's difficult to say how often he sheds the virus. Since he's had it for years it's probably why he doesn't get many outbreaks b/c shedding decreases over time.

Do you know this woman? Can you send her an anonymous e-mail through this site?

sounds to me like you want her to get it but if he has it and told her I would think she would have dumped him. I dont think he told her.

      Almost certainly that is not herpes. There are a number of diseases that can cause your symptoms, not all of them infectious. If you haven't done so already, go see a doctor as soon as you can.

      Seems likely that you had an asymptomatic infection and now you are having very mild recurrences. Asymptomatic infection is by far the most common case, in particular for HSV1 positive people. It could be a genital reinfection with HSV1, unlikely, or most likely a new HSV2 infection, there is no way to tell without a blood test. It's been long enough for an IGG test but don't bother testing for HSV1, you can already assume you are positive and have been for most of your life. I don't know about how it is where you live, but where I live I don't need to ask any doctor to get tested, I can just go into a clinical lab and order the test for €40. If your test returns negative for HSV2, don't worry about putting her at any risk regarding HSV1, she will have the same risk from anyone else. Acyclovir cream won't do any good, you should stop it (it increases the risk of getting an acyclovir resistant strain). Otherwise, your recurrences are so mild and far apart that it isn't worth it to do any treatment for now, so don't be scared about your health, chances are it'll get better with time. AND ALWAYS WEAR A CONDOM

      Doing a little research, it seems that Amenamevir  and Pritelivir are definitely not chemically identical. How similar are these drugs really?

      I have been working out regularly after being diagnosed in may with ghsv1.  First 3 weeks were awful but haven’t had any OB, symptoms at all since.  I also haven’t been eating as healthy as I should be.  Feel like I never had it. Hope it stays this way.  I think working out helps.  Just my view so far.

      Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.
