Soo, im brand new..this past friday i had sex with a new partner who is much bigger than usual 10 inches, we didnt use a condom and prior to this sunday i hadnt experienced any lesions or pain or intching or discharge such as this....but how could i contract herpes over the course of 2 days???? unless i had it already, im awaiting test results feeling pretty discusting to say the least people, im 20 and it seems as if life is meaningless at this point..im praying for it to be a yeast infection or anything but this virus...although i must admit joining this site and reading all that i have has brought my never ending tears to some smaller sobs...i never thought i would end up here...someone please some words of advice?? understanding?? anything....

Hello Paige09 and welcome.

I am sorry that you are in this situation. I know how difficult it is to wait and wonder about test results.

In the mean time, be kind to yourself and take care. Try to rest and eat well and if possible, keep busy. I will keep my fingers crossed that your results are negative and that things are okay. If that is not the case, this is a great site for education and support. Hang in there : )

Thanks amalia I appreciate your support, and have done some pretty extensive research these past few hours....i just cant bring myself to look in the mirror and feel good about what i see, who could love someone or want to get close to someone who admits that they have "genital herpes"...if thats the case, but if its not I most assuradly have a new found respect for people who do carry this burden. Thanks again.

Hi Paige

I dont mean to scare you but I just wanted to let you know that your test results probably want be accurate if you had this encounter on Sunday. Unlike, chlaymidia,gonnereha, and other stds that you can get accurate results within a week or two. Herpes and HIV takes atleast three to six months to build antibioties in your blood. I had unprotected sex with an old friend in June 2010. I started experiencing weird symptoms within two days. I went to the doctor about a week later and tested for everything. A few days later my results came in and everything was negative. I was relieved but remebered that it could still be a possibility my herpes and hiv was wrong. I went back to my doctor to be retested in September 2010 and everything was negative except herpes. So, I knew I had contracted the virus from the guy I had sex with in June. I would advise you to retest in a few months if your test is negative to be sure. Its good you got tested early because if everything is negative now and you test positive for herpes later then you know who gave it to you. Well keep me posted and I hope your story has a happier ending than mine...

      Lol, a thousand guinea pigs.  I think you raise a good question (though it's a bit sad that a 1000 guinea pigs might have to die). But every every preclinical study I know, also uses a fairly small number of lab animals.  It's rarely more than a few dozen.  For example, the EDITAS proof of concept ocular herpes solution tested in 36 animals, of which some got placebo, and some got AAV with no editors.  So testing in only a handful of animals seems to be the norm.  So I wouldn't read into that caveat too much, if I were you.  But whether that vaccine can ever enter human trials, that I don't know.   Some things I've read seemed to suggest that ppl are kind of down on the idea of testing vaccines, on account of the failures.  I hope that's not the case.

      Yeah @Lukeherpwalker I agree. Many people just see the igg tests and listen to random internet strangers about their results being from a childhood infection and on their mouth.  The fact is I got genital herpes because someone didn’t want to believe their HSV1 was genital when it was. Blood tests never can tell you location. Fact. Let’s deal with facts instead of highly unsupported opinions in the name of a life long virus shall we?

      hi Imsu, No problem about the questions.  Sangamo is a research stage stem cell and gene editing company.  They currently are not researching HSV.  But they have a gene editing and stem cell stage 1/2 trials going on regarding HIV.  The gene editing solution they are using is zinc fingers. https://www.sangamo.com/pipeline/partnered-programs And no problem about your questions.  Feel free to also inbox me if you like and want to continue the conversation.  I'm not an expert, but I've done my research.  Cheers.

      I’m more than sure you got it from your current boyfriend. 5 days later and you have an outbreak in the anal where you did it for the first time. I had a vaginal outbreak 5 days after unprotected sex with my ex. I knew I was from him because of the negative tests I had during my outbreak. Unfortunately he was i denial about the situation and didn’t support me at all. Your boyfriend may not have been aware that he had it. And he may also lie about it if he finds out he actually does carry the virus. Hopefully he gets tested and things get sorted out for the both of you.

      If you are having genital symptoms. . and test positive for hsv1 its very relevant. Op may indeed have ghsv1
