Jiu jitsu and herpes (mat herpes)

Recommended Posts

Catfish

Hi, I've been really wanting to compete in jiu jitsu. (This is wrestling with submission holds for anyone who doesn't know) I haven't taken the classes yet because I don't want to catch hs1 or as it is called in the sport "mat herpes" I have read that it never leaves your system and can potentially scar your corneas. I want to compete in this so bad but feel very reluctant to risk transmission. In the sport they wear a long sleeve shirt, shorts, and that's it. Legs, feet, head, neck, and hands are exposed and there is a ton of sweat. I'm am ecspecially concerned about the fact that you can have it and not know it. What if I catch it, don't know it and give it to my girlfiend? I am very concerned about catching this but I cannot stress enough how much I want to do this. Any help from anyone knowledgeable of the matter would be appreciated. Thanks

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂

      I just found out that the person I suspected I got this shit from has been having symptoms for YEARS! For years and never saw a doctor or got tested. Even after I was diagnosed he wouldn’t get himself checked. He said “if I do have it too, it just means we’re meant to be together” like what in the actual f*ck!!! This guy is a friend of a friend and has been wanting to date me for a while but I was never interested...until one lonely drunk night he ruined my life!!! Even after my diagnosis he lied to me about this. He told me he’s never even suspected he had a problem. I had to find out from our mutual friend that he’s had symptoms for years! I want to smash his face in with a baseball bat!
