An interesting Christmas present for me this year. Extra anxiety and a bottle of Valtrex. Wooo Hooo!

Another newbie saying hello

With about 400,000 people a year going into the doc with fresh cases of herpes, you probably had about 30,000 other people celebrating in the same way :)

Woo Hoo Merry virus-mas!? That may be highly inappropriate. But I am feeling a bit highly inappropriate this evening. Been an awfully long year and then this is the topper. I will adjust obviously but dang what a foolish mistake I made.

Welcome to our club Keith :D Well you know the saying 'we all make mistakes' so don't beat yourself up over it. It won't do you any good, it will only do Herp good because that is when he likes to come out and play the most..when we are stressed, sick and basically when our immune system is compromised. Read up to the right of here, it has a wealth of information and it will help you better understand what its all about. Remember too that we are here for support whenever the need may arise.

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore

      Hey @Laurenhelena i think by your own admission you are letting fear get the better of you. Any flu symptoms (immune toxic shock) happen after the lesions, not before. Remember that most instances of sexual activity do not result in transmission of herpes. In the end it takes one exposure... but how many times has the person received oral sex from someone with HSV-1? or had sex with someone with HSV-2 even if they didn't know it was present? The UK has amongst the lowest incidence of genital HSV-2 in the world! There's a very good chance he has HSV-1. This means much lower transmission chances than you might think and even a chance it is near zero if you have an oral HSV-1 infection yourself!
