Hi all. Ah i just found out this morning that i have HSV 2 genital herpes..I have had cold sore for years and not real sure when or how long i have had hsv2 . Not sure its sunk in yet have read alot of info but none off it seems to be what i am after. My main concern is how or if i can transmit it to other members of my family like by washing our clothes towels ect together or them using the toilet seat after me ect? or bye dringking from same glass using same utensils ect? if someone could help me on this information i would b greatly appreciative. and what preventative mesures i can take. I amscared about what effects this will have on my life and how to deal with it all.. my doctor is no help as she hardly speaks english that well and she never even gave me an info pack or anything. jst looked at me like i was filth really.

washing our clothes towels ect together

No, the virus will not live through the wash.

or them using the toilet seat after me ect?

I would just make sure the seat is dry

or bye dringking from same glass

For HSV1, I read some post that someone got it this way. I don't share glasses with anyone for regular hygiene reasons.

using same utensils ect?

I would assume same as above.

if someone could help me on this information i would b greatly appreciative. and what preventative mesures i can take.

There is a preventative section on this site and lots of other people to talk to. Do visit chat after you have posted twice. Also all measures are dependent upon whether you have HSV1 or HSV2, orally or genitally.

I amscared about what effects this will have on my life and how to deal with it all.. my doctor is no help as she hardly speaks english that well and she never even gave me an info pack or anything. jst looked at me like i was filth really.

Do not be scared. Get educated. The more you read the more you will know and not be scared.

Honey if the infection site isn't your lips then I don't think the drinks will be a huge issue but maybe just stay away from sharing glasses anyhow.

And I know the lit on the site says you can't get it from sharing glasses, that hte only way is skin to skin contact but my family does NOT do lip on lip kisses. And I still managed to contract it, and thats the only way I can come up with getting it, before I'd ever had a kiss or gotten up close and personal with Anyone!

So yeah, I'd be careful with the drink sharing :)

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?

      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...
