Oral Sex Question

Recommended Posts

jimx1000

I have type 2, diagnosed in August after getting it beg of july. If an uninfected girl gives me oral sex she can get it in her mouth correct? I had it at the base of my penis during my first and only outbreak in july 2 days after exposure but from what I understand the opening of the penis can pass the virus very easy correct(if shedding is occuring). I dont want to give some girl type 2 in her mouth!

Yes, you could, only HSV2 orally is the rarest type and has a *very* low reactivation rate. But there are always exceptions.

I agree with lizabeth, i have genital herpes, so does my partner.. we both give and recieve oral sex but have never had an OB in the mouth.

Obviously we dont do it when one of us has an active OB.

My Dr says it is possible though, i have also read on this site and others that it is possible...

Maybe it would be an idea to google the question and see what comes up. The more you know the more you can manage it.

Good luck....

I contracted type 2 in my mouth, this way. They say it has a low reactivation rate, but I'm getting outbreaks every couple of weeks - it really sucks, and the primary outbreak was a nightmare. So I would recommend having any girl who gives you oral wear a condom (and don't do it during an OB, obvs).

Hi Again

I feel i must amend my last post because since writing to you i have an OB in my mouth.... i have two small blisters on the inside and one small blister on my lip..

I realize now that i have had blisters (singular and tiny) on my lip before but dismissed it as a white head or a pimple...

Sorry to give conflicting answers my intention is not to confuse.... i am learning more each day just as i hope you are...

Good luck....

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.

      Do you have an APOE4 gene? I do. I also have HSV-2, which so far hasn't been linked to dementia. Itzhaki previously found that cold sores occur more frequently in those who carry a gene variant that confers increased risk of Alzheimer’s called APOE-ε4. "Our theory is that in APOE-ε4 carriers, reactivation is more frequent or more harmful in HSV1-infected brain cells, which as a result accumulate damage that culminates in development of Alzheimer's," she said.

      So basically, if you carry the APOE4 gene and have oral HSV-1, you chances of dementia could be quite high. But if you have APOE4, your chances of dementia were higher already. Look, 80% of the population has HSV-1. 80% of the population does not get dementia. You also seem to skip over the fact that antiviral treatment can reduce the increased chances of dementia to almost nothing. "The striking results include evidence that the risk of senile dementia is much greater in those who are infected with HSV, and that anti-herpes antiviral treatment causes a dramatic decrease in number of those subjects severely affected by HSV1 who later develop dementia," Itzhaki said. The data from Taiwan only applies to the rare severe HSV1 or VZV infections. The next step will be to study dementia rates amongst people with mild HSV1 infections, including herpes labialis or mild genital herpes. "Considering that over 150 publications strongly support an HSV1 role in Alzheimer's, these Taiwan findings greatly justify usage of antiherpes antivirals - which are safe and well-tolerated - to treat Alzheimer's disease,” Itzhaki said."They also incentivize development of an HSV1 vaccine, which would likely be the most effective treatment." I think it behooves you to do your research and actually read the articles you are posting before pulling the alarm and trying to scare people.
