So what's the deal with genital herpes 1.I've read alot of stuff online about less outbreaks & less viral shedding.How true is this? I only had this for about 10months how contagious am i? I haven't had an outbreak since my primary one.Just need some info on this. How contagious is this if your not having any outbreaks?
15?! Wow! I guess it should be that easy... Still, i'm assuming most of that 15 did not know definitively that they had HSV, but rather just 'thought' they had had a cold sore at one point... Not every lip sore is actually a cold sore as caused by HSV...
Sounds kinda nice...but also a tad manipulative if you're just pretending not to give a shit about herpes... Disclosure is nothing except honesty that should lead to the best decision for both people involved...
Hi, friends. I have GHSV-1. I've had it for about 3 1/2 years and haven't noticed any recurrences until now. This is completely different from my initial outbreak but does this look like it could be a recurrence? I can't see my gyno until Monday and I'm very anxious. This is my labia majora on the right side. I've shaved it and scratched at it to see if it would start hurting or anything so maybe I would know better. It doesn't hurt at all and my skin feels smooth when I run over it
People on valacyclovir verse a control group go from shedding on 13.5% of days down to 2.9%. That is a significant 78% reduction in shedding in subclinical shedding. Genocea got a 66% reduction relative from baseline, a 65% decrease in lesion rate vs baseline and 30 percent of patients (310 in total) remaining lesion free for 12 months post dosing.
One thing we don't know is if there was a sex bias again as was the case with the Phase 3 trial done by GSK and what was happening behind this averaging of data.
Hi anon girl. I am 45 and have had h since 21. It was never much of a problem for me as antivirals worked so well for me. I even managed to date a guy for 5 years without telling him. I know that was wrong but I was young and scared and at that time we were told you couldn't pass it on without open sores. The past few years have been tough for me. The antivirals seem to have stopped working and it seems that if I don't have an outbreak I am burning or itching so my sex life with my boyfriend has been non existent. He is so supportive and understanding but I am so depressed and cry a lot. He doesn't have h that we know of. I am so afraid of giving this to him. I think I am rambling. But I think my hormones are what's causing the outbreaks. Well that and the fact that it's all I can think about is my h. No supplements or meds help. And I'm afraid it will b this way forever. Yes I'm rambling. Sorry. I just wanted to respond to you because I liked your post. Hope to hear back from you.
Thank you, guys! I talked to him, on week ago. I was like
"I care about us! Is that why I'm telling you that"
Okay.. I cried. hahaha I was super scare! But he was so cozy, and I showed him that I'm okay living with that, and I didn't wanted him to feel sorry about me, I wanted his love and company. So... We are okay and I hope we date soon!
And I believe what hitkid said. When I found out about my herpes, the exams said that I already had it, for a long time. I realized that I was okay all this time, so nothing is changing. I just know myself better.
Again, thanks! And lucky for all of us!
I was first diagnosed almost 2 years ago with HSV2 by taking an IGG test. At that time the results came back 17.8. I just recently took another test during some other routine bloodwork I had done and now have an index value of 23.8. Has anyone else seen or heard numbers this high? I know they essentially don't mean anything, but just curious why they're so high. I rarely have outbreaks and when I do they're pretty mild. I also had them test for HSV1 and that came back negative.
