I have a question and would like some opinions. I was recently diagnosed with herpes given from my ex. I was told that his ex has been diagnosed as well and there is a possiblity he knew he had when we engaged in sex. They are back together and neither one will tell me when she tested positive. I had negative blood test a month before sex with him and had positive culture test a week after sex. He's the only person I've been with. I believe he knew he could passed to me.. I know I decided to have sex with him but he was dishonest the entire time. He cried with me when I got the news. can I file claim against him

Hi, welcome to the 'club'!

You would be wasting your time in filing a claim against him. You would have to prove that he knew he had it and that would almost be impossible to prove. And unless he has a lot of money it would really not be worth your time.

If you were a virgin before him, why did you take a blood test? If you were not a virgin there is always a chance you could have had it and have yet to build up the antibodies the test looks for.

Check out www.atlantahclub.com it is a social group here that meets monthly. There is also a support group that meets every second Thursday at Piedmont Hospital. That group really helped me out when I was first diagnosed. I plan on going this coming Thursday. You can find out the details of the meeting on that website or PM me and I can give it to you. At the last meeting they mentioned that the percentage of those in the ATL that had genital herpes is 33%.

Come to the Chat Room, there you will find many nice Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

My abusive ex gave it to me on purpose. Its a long story. But he was well aware of what he was doing and later took the time to tell me that I deserved it because I had ruined his life (he did that in writing so I suppose I had evidence). But you know what, I never even considered legal action. Firstly, for me to go through that emotionally would not have been healthy having my life picked apart by lawyers. Secondly what would the damages realistically be...there is unlikely to be loss of earnings, the only actual costs are those of the medication, possibly pain and suffering but unless you could prove that it would be hard to get a lot of money...you would really have to struck it lucky on punitive damages (that being said I think the law in Australia is a little different when it come to damages). It appears, at least in Australia they are only just starting to have successful prosecutions (and therefore precedents are starting to be set) with HIV, but they are criminal rather than civil cases at this stage...HIV does have the whole terminal aspect. It is hard, when you are suffering not to want to punish the person who put you in that situation. But you know what the less you think about them the better...that person did a bad thing to you...don't let them continue to be a part of your life--they don't deserve that power. Which takes me to my third point, for me it was healthier to disassociate my herpes from the person who gave it to me and dedicate no more of my life to thinking about him--because then in my head he continued to beat me.

JBinAtl makes a fantastic offer, look forward...meet people who can help and support you...get some counselling...those are much more productive and positive things for you to do.

Thing will get better...they always do :-)

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
