New Here going for blood test tommorrow

Recommended Posts


long story short was dating a guy that ended in the summer ( found out he was meeting other women) . Since then he has been on a rampage of putting himself out there. During our time together we would have frequent sex, for a long period of time ( I would be sore and once or twice had slight bleeding and what looked like a paper cut, which happened imediately or next day as well as burning while urinating) . I just learned through a source that one of the women he has been with has contracted herpes 2 and thinks it was from him. I am getting a blood test tomorrow and hope and pray I am ok. I had been to the doctor when we were together due to frequent infections. He claimed to have seen a doctor and all was ok neither of us I suspect were tested for herpes ( I know I was not) I was hoping I was and that it was negative so I would know, and can narrow down the source. I am worried that I have it, could have had it and not known about it and passed it on. I have not had any other symptoms and have not been active.

Hi there!:flowers:

I knew something was wrong right after I was exposed. I had burning and redness, when the doctor examined me the 2 time he found a small tear.

I am blessed not to get blisters!!! my OB's are very mild! thank you GOD!

You could have been carrying the virus and just not known, the man that gave it to me had no clue he has HSV. 80% of the people that have it do not know!

It does take up to 3 month for HSV to show up in blood work! I hope that you are not a member of our club! BUT if you are! life goes on! it may feel like it is over, but I promise it will get better!!

Hang in there, let us know your results!!

I will get the results this week. According to his story he was negative, but it could be too early for it to show up as the person he was active with was just diagnosed. He swears he his negative. My concern is I was having some issues while we were having sex which I thought was caused by friction and long sessions of vigorous activity. He was a bit rough at times and I did have a cut at one point that felt like a papercut. I am not supposed to know what I know, the information I got came to me confidentially and can not be revealed so I hope I do not have to expose it, and hope my test is negative. He was with this other woman 1 or 2 times while I then had sex with in between ( before I found out he was hot on someone else's trail) before I caught on and gave him his walking papers.

I had the same thing happen to me. It was really rough sex and the next day I noticed small cuts underneath the opening of my vagina. I immediately went to Planned Parenthood and they told me it was because of the rough sex. They said that herpes does not present itself in that way. So maybe that is what your cuts mean.

Well, since then I have been experiencing all kinds of crazy symptoms and I am just wondering if I have herpes or some type of bad bacterial infection. I got tested for everything under the sun and then took the iGG Herpesselect test after 12 weeks and it came back negative for both. I am going to wait another 12 weeks and retest to see for sure.

I hope you figure everything out.

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      I hooked up with a girl yesterday and I lightly kissed her on the lips four or five times - these were not heavy deep kisses.  As she was leaving I noticed that she had a cold sore that was healing (scabbed) on the top part of her lip. My lips definitely made contact with the scab. I’ve never had a cold sore and my last std test was negative for everything . Any chance I don’t end up with HSV1 on my mouth now after this incident? I know it’s not the end of the world but everything I read says these sores are crazy contagious and primary outbreaks in adults can be brutal. Any insight is greatly appreciated

      From what I understand shedding studies are expensive but even getting quotes and estimates on this especially in a clinical setting would be a step in the right direction. @destroyhsv, maybe you can look up labcorp or quest diagnostics and call for an estimate or any local labs in your area.

      Hello everyone, Long story short - I had my first outbreak about a year ago, got swabbed and turned out positive to HSV-2. For the first month, I only took valaciclovir when I had an outbreak but seeing that I still had back to back outbreaks, the doctor decided to put me on suppressive therapy. This has never really helped, unfortunately. In the summer, I had no outbreaks for like one and half month but apart from that, I've been having outbreaks every other week. I saw a dermatologist about two weeks ago and he swabbed another lesion that was in my mouth, which in turn revealed positive to HSV-1, although I was on valtrex at that time. He seemed very surprised and said that not responding to valaciclovir is something extremely rare... But reading testimonies here, it doesn't seem to be as rare as people think. The last two~three weeks have been the worst for me: my outbreaks won't stop and it seems to be getting worst and worst. 2 days ago, my doctor put me on the non-generic valaciclovir  just to see if I responded better to the "real" drug but this has not helped so far.  I'm a healthy adult, I eat well, get plenty of sleep (I even take naps ) and exercise 4 to 5 days a week. I supplement daily with organic acerola vitamin C (1000mg), lysine (1 to 2g) and magnesium (500 mg to 1g) and take 1 x 500mg valtrex in the morning and evening.  I'd like to hear stories of people who managed to stop or at least reduce their recurrences and what worked for them. I really need help because that is killing my sexual life, and I'm not even 30. I've read a lot of studies on the internet about people developing resistance to ACV and the likes but none of them mentions an alternative solution for people like me. Actually, I'm not even sure I have developed resistance to ACV because the drug never really worked for me. Moreover, the very few acknowledged ACV resistant cases were in majority immunocompromised patients and as far as I know, this is not my case. I wouldn't really care about that virus if I had only one or two outbreaks a year, but having it non-stop is very hard to handle psychologically. I can't have sex, drink, eat chocolate... Even read that exercising too much could trigger outbreaks. What's left for me to do? Shave my head, go to Bhutan, live with the monks and meditate 12 hours a day?

      I'd participate and pay for it if you figure out how to do a shedding study. I don't think anything other than a shedding study makes sense.

      HSV-2 is only required to be disclosed in some states of the US if and only if you know or could have been reasonably expected to know you have it. There are no laws surrounding HSV-1 disclosure or transmission.
