The blood test - if it's IgG - would only show you if you have a new or historic infection by HSV-2.. and even then with a relatively large error margin for false negatives. It's a matter of explaining to your doctor what you want to find out from your testing.
very solid points
i feel the sams way to be honest
but we can't drop everything and start from scratch to cure hsv
the cost of lost opportunity will be too high
just take u for a great example, you are smart and have done a lot but a lot of your time might be wasted if you decided to chase curing hsv
newton wasted a lot of time after he decided to become an alchemist
i think the best thing we can do is support it financially via investment, donation or start our own bitotech company to cure it
If I'm on suppressive therapy and NOT having an outbreak (gHSV2), and a girl performs oral sex on me and then we make out, could she pass the virus on to my mouth?
From this post below, I see that the chances are less than 1% without suppressive therapy for HER to get the virus, but wondering what the chances are to move from one part of the body to another in both circumstances: oral sex without suppressive and oral sex with suppressive therapy.
The doctor (the second doctor to say this) told me it did not matter if I had HSV1 or HSV2, and actually discouraged me from doing a blood test, since I had already been swabbed. I frequent this community, and as such, felt empowered to insist that I get a blood test.
I appreciate your time and how much information you and other support members provide. Thank you.
