well the antibodies to it are in your blood for sure but i dont really know the answer to that one. I did find some info about it being in body fluids and posted it on here under a different category. I cut and paste it below....dont know if it helps any.

found on a website:

"To infect people, the herpes simplex viruses (both 1 and 2) must access the body through broken skin or a mucous membrane such as inside the mouth or on the genital area. Each virus can be carried in bodily fluids (such as saliva, semen, fluid in the female genital tract) or in fluid from herpes sores. The risk for infection is highest with direct contact of blisters or sores during an outbreak."

Also, on another website (http://www.kidshealth.org/parent/inf...al/herpes.html)

it says "Herpes simplex virus type 2 can be passed in the urine or genital discharge of an infected person."

I'm 99% sure it's not like the HIV virus, meaning it is not transmitted through blood. The ways to transmit it is through skin to skin contact in an area that is a mucus membrane. Meaning: skin around your genitals, skin around your mouth, and skin around your eyes. The skin around those areas is thinner and the virus can live there.

Just wash your hands after any time you touch down there to be safe because if you touch yourself and then rub your eyes or your mouth, I heard you can transmit it there and possibly get an outbreak in one of those areas. It's much harder for HSV-2 to survive orally, but it can happen.

:grin: The virus resides on the nerves near the areas they are known to infect. They stay 'dormant' until they are triggered (several things can trigger this) then they travel down the nerve to the ends where they are 'active' and the outbreaks occur. I don't believe they travel through your blood like HIV virus' do.

Drugs like acyclovir act on the ability of the virus to replicate (who said Biology class was a waste?) and decrease the symptoms that come along with the outbreaks. Virus' are no more than a protein 'coat' surrounding DNA, and the problem that they have developing a "cure" against them is they are able to change very rapidly in response to anything that inhibits their replecation. They are excellent examples of 'Natural Selection'.

i red somewhere that you can't be a blood donor if you have HSV. I was looking for some information about this. I thought that maybe if someone with HSV antibodies would donate blood to someone who isn't HSV positive it would help to protect the HSV- person against it. it sounds logical but I don't think it works this way. i also red that you can be a blood donor if you have HSV but you can only donate blood if you don't have accute infection. so does anyone know something about this? it would be interesting to know.

      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.
