Just saying hi to the site. I'm over feeling depress about my condition but still very much angry about the situation. A little background, it's been a year since I discovered I have HVS 2. Here's the interesting part at the beginning of that year IGG for HSV2 was negative I broke up with my girlfriend at the time and casually dated (no sex) mid year another test still negative. Hooked up with a friend had a little fling and ended it in August, later i meet my future fiance whom we decide to wait til we get married (no sex :( lol). In December 2010 had my first outbreak so of course I suspect my friend the last person I had sex only she tested negative on her IGG...So what the hell!:madd: Oh after my outbreak my fiance got test she's negative.

After that I did research I found that most occurrences happen 2 to 12 days after initial infection, 2-12 days i was going to and showering at the gym religiously, thats the only place my penis was exposed to the dangers of the world lol. I know it sounds crazy but it all true.

Heyoooo... I'm from Houston as well!!

From what I understand, there are lots of occurrences of false negatives when taking a blood test. The only sure fire way to test for herpes is taking a swab of an outbreak. Meaning the girl you slept with tested negative but probably has it and is asymptomatic. That's just my guess.

I'm sorry you are having to deal with this but welcome to the site! This forum is a great place to get information about the glorious gift of herpes.

      It’s related to the estrogen/progesterone balance. You can google and find a lot of info about it.  I have the same problem.  I’ve also recently read about the link to prostaglandins and hsv, and those increase during periods, too.

      I found the love of my life ( my wife) after I contracted herpes. She is totally supportive and understanding. Never give up hope! After my first outbreak and diagnosis I was a WRECK! Depression like you wouldnt belive, but in time you will find its more of an inconvenience than anything. My best advice is to be very selective about who you want to date and tell your secret too. There is still a stigma about herpes and gossip can damage your self esteem.

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.
