I have been married for 13 years and my wife just went to the doctor today because of a genital sore. They did nothing but look at it and told her she had Herpes. I have never had a break out of any sort. I do not believe she has ever cheated. I did within the last 3 years but was very careful. Could I have been a carrier and gave it to her with out showing signs myself?

It is very common for people to carry this virus and pass it to others unknowingly, as they have not had symptoms. 1 in 5 women carry genital herpes and 1 in 10 men carry it. Over 70 percent of the population carries oral herpes.

They did not swab my partner, they just looked. Could it be misdiagnosed, or is it that obvious when it is Herpes?

It can certainly be misdiagnosed with a visual. A culture at the time of the blister is usually the best. But then there are blood tests that are herpes type specific that can diagnose.

It is unfortunately more common than more people think. Good luck to you and your wife.

I was just diagnosed with genital herpes after 7 years with my husband - neither of us have had symptoms in the past. My doctor did a swab culture to confirm that it was HSV1. I've read that it is very easily misdiagnosed without a swab or blood test, but my doctor was very confident as well before the results came back.

      Yes and I have received quite a number of complaints about you too... people wondering why you haven’t been banned for such flagrant lying. Anyways, it matters not. Readers can see what is the truth, and truth is all that matters.

      @WilsoInAus talking to you is like talking to the wall, follow your path and do not give importance to my comments and received complaints from other users of how you judge who has problems with the community of hsv are you, doctors are too wrong do not know everything and you who have no medical and academic training will judge a doctor who with a blood test and a culture diagnosed me with hsv-1 (I'll tell you a phrase that a doctor told me you're not going to judge my diagnoses that's why I I left the mother 8 years studying) _______________________ hablar contigo es como hablar con la pared siga su camino y no le dé importancia a mis comentarios e recibido quejas tuyas de otros usuarios de como los juzgas el que tiene problemas con la comunidad de hsv eres tú, los médicos se equivocan demasiado no lo saben todo y tu que no tienes ninguna formación médica y académica va a juzgar un médico que con un examen de sangre y un cultivo me diagnostico hsv-1 ( te diré una frase que un médico me dijo tu no vas a juzgar mis diagnósticos por eso me partí la madre 8 años estudiando)

      No I’m sorry that is not the case. You have lied and deceived to feed your own paranoia. That is unacceptable behaviour anywhere, particularly this behaviour. Our readers understand perfectly. It’s time to reflect upon this atrocious behaviour. Please comeback when you’re prepared to be mature. I’m sorry no one has been able to help you overcome your psychological problems regarding herpes.

      lo que tú no entiendes es que no todos tienen los mismos síntomas y los mismos brotes hay gente que no tiene síntomas y sabe brotes recurrentes mucha gente tiene síntomas sin brotes visibles heno asintomáticos y sintomáticos muchos doctores confunden un brote de hsv a una espinilla (acné ) y viceversa _______________________ @WilsoInAus what you do not understand is that not everyone has the same symptoms or the same outbreaks there are people who do not have symptoms and get recurring outbreaks many people have symptoms without visible outbreaks there are asymptomatic and symptomatic many doctors confuse an outbreak of hsv to a pimple (acne) ) and vice versa

      @WilsoInAus estas muy mal, mi  diagnostico de hsv fue sólo por escuchar mis síntomas sin pruebas de sangre eso fue a los 20 días la prueba de sangre fue casi al cumplir un mes además todos las personas son diferentes el hsv no dura mucho en infectar células epiteliales en muchos casos a los 15 días de la infección ya puedes obtener anticuerpos hay gente que dura meses hay gente que dura menos de un mes porque tiene que ser igual para todos? _____________________ you are very bad, my diagnosis of hsv was just by hearing my symptoms without blood tests that was 20 days after the blood test was almost one month later all the people are different the hsv does not last long in infecting epithelial cells in many cases after 15 days of infection and you can get antibodies there are people who last for months there are people who last less than a month because it has to be the same for everyone?
