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.

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.

      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic

      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
