Hello All

Recommended Posts


I am new to the forum and I got on here as someone who is dating and in love with a guy who has HSV1 orally... I don't know if I have it or the antibodies. So many people in my life have it and I share drinks and utensils and makeup and whatnot freely with many of them so I am almost positive I at least have the antibodies which I guess means I have HSV1 too?

Ahhh so confused as this is all so new to me. I just went to my doctor on Wednesday and explained the situation to him and that I wanted blood work to see if I have it. So I am awaiting the results.

Well thats me. I am on here to learn :) I look forward to meeting many of you!

80% of adults have it, so more than likely you do. However you did NOT get it from sharing utenils, drinks or make up. The ONLY way to spread it is from skin to skin contact. You probably got it as a child from a kiss from a relative.

Good luck!
