met a wonderful man


Recommended Posts

i have been talking to a wonderful guy for awhile now. i really care about him and he cares about me. we have decided we wanted to take our relationship to the next level. a couple of nights ago he told me he had something he needed to share with me before we could go any further. he told me he has herpes. i respect him for being honest and i know it couldn't have been easy. it didn't change the fact that i want to be with him. but i now have concerns for myself. i don't know all the facts about herpes and how to prevent contracting it.

I'm so glad you came to this site. In all of the research I've done, this is the best site that I've found, with tons of good (and accurate) information, and lots of support. I'm also so glad you are taking the time to learn about herpes so you can better understand it and support this wonderful man. Thanks for posting! :)

There is no 100 percent way of preventing you from contacting this virus however there is methods that can grately reduce your chances of getting it. You must insist that he wears a condum at all times not just when he having or thinking he getting a outbreak. a person can shead the virus before he has a ob and shortly after. and you cannot tell when he will have a ob in advance.

also when he is having a ob restrain from having sex with him. remember rubbers do tear or slipp off. That how i got it my ex had herpies 2 did not tell me and sure enough it slipped off one day and i got the gift

also on sideboard there is enfo on how to prevent spreading herpies and other herpie info and pictures of herpies which i incourage you see and read

It says a lot about his character that he told you. From my personal experience and from accounts I've read on this site, that too often is not the case. He's lucky you are understanding and ready to inform yourself. Thanks for being awesome!

Hi. Welcome to this site. Glad you are taking the time to learn about this virus. :) Another way for him to reduce the chances of giving you the virus is by taking daily antivirals (if he doesn't already). Personally, I take Valtrex. Read the links on the right as well, there is a lot of great information!

      Okay.... makes sense.... I hope it is helping.  Again, I would ask about a Rx for valacyclovir instead of acyclovir.... valacyclovir gets more acyclovir into your system than taking straight acyclovir.

      Hi @Throwaway765 yes that all makes sense and you’ve pretty well reached the right conclusions except for a very significant fact!! You are right, receiving genital HSV-2 from oral sex is unheard of, just not feasible given how people have it and whether it actually sheds in infectious quantities or not. Safely rule this out. Now HSV-1; once you have this as you do orally, you have immunity against infection anywhere else on the body, it is also not feasible.  The symptoms you describe are also not related to herpes in the absence of lesions.

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
