How did I catch it and could I of spread it

Recommended Posts


Been diagnosed with hsv2 and trying work out were it came from,

Could I of had it around the mouth area "never had a cold soar so don't think I carry the hsv1 virus" and then spread it to my partner though oral sex who then gave it back to me though normal sex in the groin area?

We have been apart for a a while and were only back together for a few days when she got a couple of small sours took about 3/4 day to clear up, she has had nothing like it before, the next day I had what I believe was my first outbreak had about 5 sours that took about 3 week to clear me glands were up as well. Never had any thing like it before and since the had one more outbreak about a month after, I believe! I did not get the soar but glands came up a bit and a fizzy feeling at the pubic line area which is what I had last time and my mouth area is sometimes a bit tingle during the 2 outbreaks as well, that what makes me wonder about the mouth

My girl friend has been fine since

Or could it of just been laying dormant in one of us for 6 month ago when we broke up for a bit?

I know I will not get a definite answer

its unlikely you will have got it that way, as normally in the mouth area its hsv 1 so when spread to the groin area from the mouth its hsv1 there as well, so unless you had hsv 2 in the mouth area you cant spread hsv 2 to the groin that way(rare to spread it yourself that way anyway), hsv doesnt change the type it is, when i was diagnosed my dr told me that normally you get symptoms about 5 to 10 days after you get infected with it, there are people in which they have had it for a while but their symptoms are mild so they dont know they have it, your glands going up suggest that its was your first outbreak as people normally get cold/flu like symptoms the first time, there are exceptions(like anything), sorry i cant be more help

      Ok. That's true. I would def. use protection but i was just thinking I should say something. I haven't made an decisions yet so nothing has happened. And also thanks for your response.

      Im thinking alot of one night stands are usually ppl you dont know. So i assume alot of ppl take the risk and have protected sex or even unprotected sex knowing they will never see thst person ever again. Especially if the transmission rate is low while using protection

      I mean by that same logic anybody would be crazy to have sex with us ever  lol ppl we end up in relationships with are at risk the most aren't they? Since that would mean regular sex...  I'm asking to see if anybody has ACTUALLY disclosed to a one night stand because I've read on other sites that ppl have done it but most are blogs like the one here https://www.emilydepasse.com/eldsoul/2018/3/25/ask-emily-dating-with-herpes where basically the writer is responding to a question vs me actually having the ability to talk to the person who actually has the experience

      http://www.eligiblemagazine.com/2013/03/14/lube-up-with-coconut-oil/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10813049 https://www.drgonzalezmd.com/avoid-secondary-herpes-infections-with-coconut-oil/   Coconut Oil has been shown to contain alot of antiviral properties. Herpes simply cannot survive in it, however I'm curious at how effective it is at preventing herpes transmission during sex, and if it'd make you near invincible. Herpes during sex is transmitted through skin to skin friction which coconut oil significant reduces.  Also if the virus were to leave the carrier's body it would get caught up in the layer of oil and killed. But how fast? Also, The lube drys out as you rub against each other, so you'd have to keep re-applying every so often.   Depending on the intensity of the sex, the coconut oil will get thoroughly rubbed into the persons skin layers, which'd mean the virus undoubtedly be on the persons skin and flesh. But, Theoretically, The virus should be dead/inactive due to being surrounded by the anti viral coconut oil, so it wouldn't even be able to crawl into their body to infect.   We need to get a bunch of lab mice or monkey, Infect 2 with herpes (Control and Test groups) , cover the test group in coconut oil, and let them have sex. If the test group shows less herpes transmission rates than that means that Coconut oil decreases STD TRANSMISSION!   Why hasn't this been done yet? Even if it didn't reduce transmission by 100%, 50% would lower std rates significantly.
