Black pepper

Hi there

I have a question I have had gentile herpes four about 20yrs and I have been with the same woman who is my wife . Can u go all that time and never get it. She has never had a outbreak and never shown that she has it and we have been together r for so long. Anyway when i have a outbreak I use a condom. This time I might have tried to early because there was a scab there and I still did'nt heal to the point where there was no edvidence. I dont think the virus was was still active because it did look healed but I don't know. Looking for advice

it is possible to go that length of time when you use precaution and preventive measures and luck without passing it on to your wife. however still take precautions if you have a ob that scabed over as you still shreading the virus.Just because it scabed over does not mean it not still active

yes. some people can have herpies but do not display systems of it. Some get herpies have 1 ob then never have another. If you are worried about your wife getting it from you and you need to know go have her get tested

      There’s new treatment available for cmv and shingles but nothing yet for hsv. It’s like a slap in the face!

      Any ladies out there suffered with this? There seems to be little information about it on the net. Thanks in advance.

      Rejection will be there during your whole life. But not because of herpes, also because of how you are, at work, at your private life. It's just a part of life! Just have in mind that if people reject you because of stupid little things like herpes, they are not even worth continuing as a part of your life.  I think the best way of fighting the stigma is to be 100% convinced that there is NO NEED to feel ashamed, bad, disgusting because of herpes. I one day understood some very important thing: I did NOTHING differently than my friends who don't have herpes. I had sex (they did), sometimes with protection (they did), sometimes without (they did). I had ONS (they did), I had long term relationships (they did), I received wonderful and less wonderful oral sex, haha (they did). The only difference is that I got genital herpes from someone who didn't even know. So why exactly should I feel disgusting or bad?  And also: Know the facts. That is the safest way to destroy stigma in my opinion. If someone tells you: "Yuck! Herpes is disgusting!" you can answer: "I don't think that 80 % of the world population are disgusting because they have a virus in their bodies."  I also recommend this video from "Laureen". She has really great videos about herpes!

      Thanks for the comments. Looks like the only think that might have a shot at helping us in the future is the drug Pritlevir then.

      @PeaceNeeded no there is zero relationship between penile spines and HSV-2, no such variant is possible.
