Hi and thank you .. :)

Well the website is getting easier to get around I just frustrated cause there is like too much information for my brain to handle but at the same time I want to know everything I can know about about this stupid disease.I don't know when I got but apparently it has been with me for a while I get sores on my tail bone but no place else. So I am trying to find out how I would have got it there and how NOT to pass it on to my partner. It is so crazy you know you get to know someone then after months of getting to know them then you have sex then two days later you go and say I have herpes. I just wanna bang my head against the wall but that won't do anything but give me a headache so I won't do that. So my doctor gave me this medication the same stuff he gave me when I had bells palsy but I am on two pills a day for the rest of my life. The rest of my life is not what bothers me its the price of them that sends ya for a loopy loop! But the other alternative would be worse. Cause I wouldn't want to pass this on.

So have you ever heard of just having it on your tail bone well I guess the virus is in my system cause I had bells. I look on sites trying to find out if I can pass it on but there are like ninety million zillion sites to go through I just don't know where to look . I want to know percentages of males getting it from females and visa versa I want to know if anyone else just has it on the tail bone .. I just wanna know you know . Thanks for letting me babble I actually feel a bit better.

      Sort of unrelated, but I remember a few months ago finding new patents filed last year for the einstein college vaccine. I wondered if they were indicative of new developments with it, but I brushed it off as probably not.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.
