question24

Hi I just recently found out that I am pregnant and my doctor did a blood test. It came back that I do not have a STD but that I was exposed to herpes. This came as a complete shock because I never had a cold sore or bumps on my vagina. I am even more confused because I wasn't told what type of herpes and I wasn't prescribed medicine. In fact my next appointment is in a month. She told me not to blame my boyfriend and he should get tested. He was shocked because he just got tested and everything was negative but the Doctor said he has to ask for that particular test because it is not a standard std test. Now I am complete wreck because the matter wasn't explained properly. Am I overreacting comments will be greatly appreciated. Also has unprotected sex with him two days before the results. I know have a slight sore throat and worrying if thats a sign somethings gonna happen or mind over matter. I must stress I have no symptom for oral or genital. I have gotten razor bumps after shaving bikini area or a hair root but it goes away after a few days. Theres no pain or anything. sorry for the to much info. but I want to explain my situation thoroughly to get the best response. My bf is the only person I ever been with Im 24 and pregnant. please hel

well, your doctor wasn't really clear on anything. I think on your next visit, you should ask if you can take a blood test for herpes specifically. but never the less, you and your baby should be fine.

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
