New to this and not sure where it came from / protecting partner

Recommended Posts

charleigh

Recently had a pretty bad outbreak, my very first.

With a partner for a few years, he's never had any symptoms whatsoever. Has had a coulurful past sexually, but clean std tests.

We broke up once for 3 months in which he had unprotected oral sex with a random.

Since then Ive had an active HPV infection and now an outbreak of painful blisters.

So did the virus come from me or him? Should he be protecting himself? Should we be sexually active while tests results come in?

Am I missing something? I really dont understand it all.

Hey charleigh, welcome to our site :wavey: . If either of you have ever had previous sex partners, either one of you could or even both of you, could have carried herps for many years and just never knew. Most Std panel test Do Not test for h. It's crazy I know, but you must request the herps specific blood test called the Igg. Most Dr do Igm. I have ghsv2 for 24 years I stayed dormant for 23 years, just had a second outbreak. I'm ghsv2.my husband of 22 years is a non h man. I only had one other partner before I married my first hubby, he was my giver, so I considered myself safe because I was married. We were together for 5 years. He cheated, I got h, then got divorced. Is your h type h1 or h2 genital? Many women get their genital h from oral sexy times. Has he or you ever had a cold sore, that's h1. Are you on antivirals? Also how did you test? These test have numeric values, numbers, some believe these numbers can give an idea of possible length with with h. Like newly exposed or years with it. There is a website www.medhelp.org , address your questions and these test results to a Dr.Grace., she will explain them to you in detail. Also here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read all you can, get educated and educate him too. Please feel free to ask any and all questions here in the forum. You can visit live Chat too. Take care. Truly, Ace :hithere:

You don't say how long ago he left the relationship then came back or exactly how bad your o/b was. What was the time frame of last having sex with him and your o/b?

Were your sores scraped and cultured and did you have blood testing?

      The prophylactic vaccine trial by GSK took 8 years and they were still not done with it.  That's because it takes time to see whether it works--it's a matter of many people having sex over time and that just takes a lot of time.   A shedding study is quicker, so therapeutic vaccines are quicker to test.  5-6 years I think.  Note that there was a study conducted last year that showed that there's a high correlation between shedding and outbreaks, suggesting that it might not even be necessary to track outbreaks, measuring shedding may be enough. It's unclear what they would be proving in case of a gene editing technique.  I think shedding would be a part of it.  But what else, if anything, I don't know. Anyway, it doesn't necessarily have to take a long time like the GSK prophylactic trials.

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
