Do you have the answer?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am very new here...

I have been diagnoised with HPV, but still am unsure which type.

I had feelings in my genital area which lead me to the doctor, who than took a culture test.. The culture came back positive, (in May 06) I have since had 2 blood tests that show nothing!!

Finally went to a specialist and she says that I probably have the 1 in my genital area. With being upset, I did not ask all the questions I should have. Like if I never had a cold sore, can I pass this by kissing?

I realize I am probably classified as HPV2 because of the location.

I have read alot here today and saw pictures......so far I believe I have had 2 episodes with only a rash feeling and tingling....I am way lucky!

Still have to live with this forever and am coming to grips with it, but have been in denial since May and now wonder if I can pass thru kissing?

Does anyone know?

hpv> warts.

hsv> herpes.

yes if you have a cold sore you can spread it by kissing.

oraly is usually classified as 1, genital 2- but the test would tell you specifically what you have where.

Thank you for replying.

I never had any sores.

My OB was very mild in the genital area.

I imagine I have HSV2.....can I transfer from kissing too?

No sores ever.

Thank you

if u have any sores, or are in any form of a outbreak- touching, kissing, sex, etc. can transfer it. so whichever one you have, if you are having a ob, anything u do can spread it.

even not having a active ob, can spread it to "shedding" thats why its just a good idea to play it safe w/ sex.

Thank you for the quick reply.

This is horrible.......... I am almost certain my recently ex gave it to me.

One - my blood work is still negative, but yet the culture is positive.

Two- he has had a sore on his mouth. Plus my first outbreak was within the first three months of dating him. 2+2=4

I informed him of all I have found out and that he needs to educate himself, especially about the shedding part of this virus. He was clueless about that, though that no sore = no transfer.

I am angry because he is one of those people that is nervous about uncooked chicken, ingredients in foods, and his overall health, but yet found no desire to look into this disease. Things that make you say hmmmmmmmmm?

I broke up with him before I found out for sure I had this (because of other issues). I know he was in love with me, but not sure his penis took over his thinking, ya know?

Thank you for listening, I hope in the future I can help someone else going thru this. How does one date? Is it possible that if I date someone who has worse outbreaks that mine can become worse. So far mine are very minimal.

thanks again

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
