Confused =( meh

Recommended Posts

Hello!

So last week I noticed a sore near my vagina. It hurt when I touched it, and it flared up at the same time as a canker sore in my mouth. I had been sick all week and stressed from a couple exams.. I think it might be a herpes outbreak.

But I have never had anything like this before in that part of my body. I've had canker sores and a cold sore on my lip before. I went to my health clinic and they took a swab to test for HSV 1 and 2...still waiting on results.

What's confusing to me though, is if it is herpes, how did I get it? I've only ever had 2 sex partners. The first one was over 5 years ago, and we were both virgins. The second was very recently tested for STDs, only a month ago, and his IgG for HSV 1 was .4 (which is "negative" according to the test), and .05 for HSV 2.

Is it possible he could have transmitted HSV 1 to me through oral sex, even though his HSV 1 IgG is low enough to be considered negative? He says he has gotten canker sores in his mouth before..

Just trying to make sense of it all. Thank you! :)

Hmmm...did your first boyfriend give you oral sex? And had he been tested for herpes as well?

Ooh, that's a good point. I hadn't thought of that. Possible. Honestly, I can't remember if I ever received oral sex from him.

Hmm, this will be an interesting way of getting back in touch after 6 years of no contact..!

Thank you, that is a very good point!

      I believe there will be a cure for a gun and I do not want to lose my faith

      What do you think about ahcc? It is used in the treatment of HPV and increases immunity. Can it also prevent hsv? because increasing immunity will reduce recurrences. can it work? sorry for the spelling mistakes because it is not an anthropology

      Bleh, been a little over a month since I posted this and still having the burning pain since April. Will I ever feel normal down below again without taking meds for nerve pain?

      Although I am male, I have nerve pain down below as well. Instead of my leg, it is actually in my scrotum. I contracted this virus last year in December 2017. My initial outbreak was in my throat, nothing down below at all. Test in January confirmed that I had HSV-2; tested looking for IGG antibodies which were at 23. In April, I believe i had a very minor outbreak with just one spot that may have been a blister in my groin. Although there was no pain, I was afraid that it would get worse so I decided to take my valtrex for 5 days (the spot disappeared within 3 days). Two days after I stopped valtrex, the nerve pain came about and was in both of my inner thighs and my scrotum. From that moment on, the nerve pain moved from the thighs and stayed only in my scrotum and has persisted daily ever since.  My nerve pain is constant; not in the sense of 24/7 non stop, but on and off throughout the day, every day. So in essence, I'm in the same boat with you where I don't have any visible symptoms (no redness though in my case), but have the constant burning sensation. I will admit, hearing your story and knowing that this has persisted for you for over 16 years is kind of disheartening to me. I keep telling myself that because I am still new to this virus, my body is still getting use to it and that after the first year one day the nerve pain will stop completely. Now I am not so sure.
