trying not to make this into something bigger than it has to be. Have HSV2 but no symptoms, found out from blood test. Boyfriend does not have, so he is leaving me because he is too worried.:(

It is possible he has it but hasn't had an OB. A person will not test positive until they have their first OB. I actually tested negative during my first OB because I hadn't built enough antibodies to show up on the test. The blood tests for antibodies...not virus. Try to understand where your BF is coming from but at the same time if he's not going to support you then he's not a good BF and he's not a good friend. Be careful who you tell at first but try to find someone you can talk to. I am fortunate enough to have a sister who loves me unconditionally and even have a cousin who is also HSV positive. If not look for support here online. It will be okay.

I tried to reply back but do not see what I wrote? I was trying to say, with me having no symptoms and on valtrex, I really do not think I passed anything on. He is getting tested again after 6 months but do not think I gave him anything. I think he is like any typical male, he wants sex without condom usage and is afraid to with me, so he wants to move on.

That is definately a possibility! Boys will be boys. Talk to your doctor and read up on "viral shedding"...even no obvious symptoms doesn't mean the virus isn't active. Some doctors (my friends dad!) think its really a ploy by the drug companies to get you to take valtrex. IDK about this though!

Anyway--HSV isn't a big deal...although I thought my life was over for about a month or so. It will take some time for you to heal emotionally but it just gets better and there are plenty of men out there who will accept you and your condition!

      So, it works as both preventative and cure? when can we expect phase 1 trail start?

"We believe that ∆gD-2 may be more promising than other previous vaccine candidates because it elicits a different type of immune response against HSV-1 and HSV-2 that is more effective in preclinical models at clearing virus and preventing the establishment of latency. In nonclinical models, immunization with ∆gD-2 elicits antibodies that facilitate the killing of infected cells, rapidly clearing the virus and thereby inducing sterilizing immunity," added William Jacobs, PhD, co-Inventor and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine."...

      They may not cure HSV but it looks like they are taking positive steps against HIV : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/he alth-news/hiv-cure-soon-human-trials-underway-in-china/articleshow/70316379.cms   "Hopefully, the second-phase trial will be completed in the latter half of 2021, and the third-phase clinical trial may start at the end of that year, which will involve thousands of volunteers in a trial to test the effectiveness of the vaccine to protect people against HIV," the researcher added."...
