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?

      No the red bumps don’t suggest herpes on their own. Please obtain the test :)

      Thank you for getting back to me! Even the tiny red dots/bumps very close to the clitoris look fine? And maybe my symptoms are cause by my anciety? I haven't gotten any type of herpes test done tbh I'm terrified to do so but I know it needs to be done

      Did you have a genital outbreak? Did you have any testing done (swab, igg blood test?) From my understanding self inoculation is very rare and very unlikely if you have had HSV-1 since childhood. I don’t think you transferred your oral HSV-1 infection to yourself genitally.

      I was in a long term relationship, got tested regularly. He got tested (possibly not for H).. we mostly wore condoms.. even after negative tests.  However,  it still happened. This doesn't discriminate.  My dr. agreed that it wasn't fair and that sometimes life is like spinning a wheel. I can't say if a one night stand is worse. Most of us got blindsided with our diagnosis

      Thank you for explaining to Cas9 the importance of diversity of opinion. If Cas9 had a technical issue with my language agreed he should have explained that kindly and politely   I am glad he admitted to getting angry and behaving inappropriately. I have since blocked  Cas9 as admin got back to me with the block function.  I personally do believe that synergy may be an effective cure for some. I also personally believe that the body has the ability to clear most chronic illnesses althou it does have limits. This is my opinion. Yes I am yet to test. As I have stated some people here have achieved a negative blood test although some have not and some have had a huge reduction of symptoms. Most people are smart enough to read all the threads as I have  I have dealt with synergy and I believe their testimonials to be the truth   my symptoms are reducing. And while I do not suggest downing a bottle of the amino acids one thing I can tell you is that their product does not do nothing  as I did almost down half a bottle There are a number of science papers showing some amino acids can treat herpes effectively one of them a recent paper saying glutamine was as effective or more effective than anti viral drugs.  I have experienced many anectotol things in my own life that give me confidence in alt med.  It is up to each person to evaluate their own health choices on their own personal probabilities and understanding of the state of science and reality. I well understand the difficulty of that in today's climate.  Im not a blow in and committed to sharing my results and experiences  I'll check in when I reach that point where I'm no longer experiencing symptoms     i know some some people have failed but I feel because of my various experiences I bring a bit more to the table for my own success anyone should evaluate their own situation with a chosen experienced health team that is well researched
