Jiu jitsu and herpes (mat herpes)

Recommended Posts


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

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
