Hello! I have had GHs since 1999. I am kind of confused on how I got it though? I have only been with 2 people and was with my husband when I got it. He has had no signs of ever having them. The only thing I can think of is that maybe he had a cold sore and didn't realize he could pass it on to me. We were young. Since my first OB and didn't have another till 2007 and since then has gotten progressively worse. I think I may have gave it to my husband as well. This year while I was having an OB he as well had sores all over his mouth, inside and out. Something he has never had. And has been getting cold sores regularly since then. He is a wonderful person and not once blamed me and even when I brought it up he said, "well it was worth it!"

I am so glad this site is here! This year has been extremely hard for me with other health problems I am having, which I believe stem from my HSV.

thanks for listen or reading!

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
