question about transmission

Recommended Posts

SirRuskin

hi there i had an outbreak some months ago and my gynie did an oral inspection and said it looked like herpes. i had a blood test done a few days ago and now she says i had the disease but am now immune to it so i cant get it again and i also cant pass it on to anyone else. this contradicts everything i have read online so i am now really confused! can anyone help?

Unfortunately some doctors are not up to speed with HSV. Have a look at the panel on the right under prevention and spreading. Which type of HSV are you?

How do you know?

How do you find out what form of Herpes you have? is it a blood test? And are any of them not sexually transmitted?

Hi

Thanks for the reply, i am not sure what type i am i have an appointment next month with my doctor and then i will find out, i had a genital outbreak but it was only one and it is now seven months later and i have not had another one (thankfully) i suspect it may be type one though, my husband has had cold sores before but never anything genital. although he refuses to believe that it could possibly have come from him, so it is making my marriage very diffucult at the moment. we have been together 17 years but he had three wives before me and i had one relationship before him so it could have come from anywhere. sorry just venting a bit it is about the only place i can.

Vent away that partly why the site was set up. Many members don't have anyone they can turn to.

I didn't know until I got hs that coldsores were hs. Would he look at the information on the panel on the right?

hi, no he is not interested in anything i have to say at present, in fact he is convinced that i am having affairs with every guy i happen to talk to more than once. we started a new business and i have had to work with public more where as before i worked from home and hardly ever saw anyone. now he is jealous of the friendships i have developed with my male co-workers (even the gay one) and any other male friend i might happen to dance or party with. i have explained to him that hs can lie dormant for years and that 70+% of people dont even know that they have it, but he only believes that the first outbreak occurs 2 - 10 days after infection, so i must have slept with someone else over christmas-new year, he also refused to go for a blood test to see if he has the antibodies or not -at the time, so even if he goes now and has them he will just say he got it from me. anyway i will just have to try sort it out, dont quite know how and its looking like my marriage is on the line, but thanks for listening.

as far as i understand, you have to do a blood test to find out the type, unless you have an active outbreak then they can take a scraping and send it away. and it is only spread by physical contact, either by kissing or oral-genital, or genital-genital contact. mostly only when the virus is active but can also happen at other times and no-one knows when that is, check out the panel on the right on spreading and preventing

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
