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!

      Doesn't this suck. Using protection and still catching this BS. Uggh, my life story!!

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me
