HSV1 genital outbreak? HELP!!!

Recommended Posts


Well...my (as of right now due to the shock of all this!) ex boyfriend just called a few hours ago and told me his results came back, he has HSV1...Never had a coldsore in his life (he has complained to be before about a "bump" he occassionally gets in his mouth on his gums, could this be related?!). I had my 1st OB and it was genital... Aside from the relationship turmoil, I now want to know more about HSV1 genital...I do not know which type I am for sure and I know I need to get that figured out but AS OF RIGHT NOW I am assuming I am HSV1 genital... If anyone, ANYONE has any information on HSV1 with genital outbreaks, I would really like your feed back on this! Please if you have HSV1 with genital OB, message me or reply and share what you know...and your experiences (if you are willing). I would really appreciate it and as sorry as I am for all of us having to deal with this, I look forward to learning as much as possible about HSV1 with genital OB's. Thanks so much, I appreciate your support :)

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
