im an 18/m and i think have herpes 2, although i havent been tested, but i had blisters on my knees (which i read is possible if you just have skin to skin contact) and i had other symptoms such as fever, muscle ache, tiredness.

i happened to just make one big mistake on a drunken night with a girl i know i shouldnt have had contact with and never would have if i was sober that night.

im getting tested as soon as i can this week to be 100% sure but im still freaking the hell out, on account that im in an enviroment where im always around girls and i dont even know how i will react around them with it comes to sexual activity or just building a relationship at all. i havent even told any of my closer friends at all, so im just on here asking for advice. i know im not sure i have it but any advice on how to deal with it would be helpful, since i may get the depressing news soon.

As long as you are not going to have sex with them you don't have to tell anyone. You can be the "guy that doesn't just sleep around and is looking for a long term relationship" whether you are 18 or 30 or 50. This is acceptable at any age, can let you know if you trust a girl before you tell her, and can keep you out of other trouble.

      @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...
