Hi everyone. I'm brand new to the support forums and have been needing some support for some time now. After reading through some of the forum topics, I really think this might be a good place to allow myself to continue to deal with this virus, as well as the huge emotional impact this has had on me!

I am originally from and live in Nebraska, where we just got our first snow, Merry Christmas :) I am 29 years old and single, loving a fairly fast-paced life that allows me to do pretty much whatever I want. I work at a bank as a mortgage loan assistant. I love how much I have learned and progressed in a matter of five years with the bank, especially the people I work with. I'm a huge people person and need that "people energy" a lot of the time, although I do enjoy hibernating in my apartment at times.

I currently have a bucket list for myself that I want to complete before I turn 30 next August. So far that has included making a gingerbread house, shooting a gun, cooking a whole turkey for Thanksgiving for my family, annnnd I think that is it so far. I am documenting each thing and am going to make a scrapbook when I am all done. Because I will be in a completely different age bracket, I will have more time for things like scrapbooking ;) Haha, just kidding. I should be more crafty with my time anyway.

That's me -- and that's hardly scratching the surface. I look forward to talking with others, and giving/receiving support that is hard to find in friends who haven't experienced HSV. Thanks for reading :)

      Morality aside, it could be that your "disclosure" talk is not as reassuring as it could be. With awareness of diagnosis, suppressive meds, and condoms every time, the risk of male-to-female transmission is very low. How low? If you and a female partner were having sex twice a week, it would be a 1-in-600 year event. Assuming precautions are taken, your female partner would be likely to die of old age without ever getting HSV, even of you had sex with her multiple times every day without a single day off for the rest of your life.

      For those of you with GHSV 1 or 2 how did you know you were having a second outbreak? I was diagnosed with GHSV-1 a month ago and have had no symptoms till now. For the past two days I've been super itchy but there are no bumps/ulcers like last time. I read somewhere that some people experience periodic itchiness and no other symptoms so I'm wondering, is this super common and is what is happening to me? Or do I need to prepare myself that this is most likely a second outbreak in it's initial stages?

      We havent cured things not because we can't its because profits are a bigger priority. Trust me when I say I know it sounds like conspiracy talk but look at where and what they throw money at.... sickness is lucrative. So is death (War) The military budget is criminal to say the least, as is Nasa's budget That's just simple math, then look at all the obscene hurdles set in place to help deter anyone from going the distance. They only cry ethics when it comes to anything that could potentially benefit the greater good.

      I think it is very important for you to find out whether you carry HSV-1 or not. If you do, then any concerns you may have about HSV-1 are negligible. Many people carry an oral HSV-1, like your partner. This will be the only region of her body infected, that is the mouth in a practical sense. No contact with the mouth means no chance of infection for you. Hence there are zero issues with vaginal sex and you giving her oral. Kissing and you receiving oral sex are the feasible transmission possibilities. Perhaps the second is of minor concern, but your choice. If you decide you're never going to kiss a girl because she has HSV-1 orally then that will be your loss. Most girls have HSV-1 and all the cute ones!

      I disagree, we have made a significant contribution to keeping it on track and ensuring the OP has the correct information to cogitate upon. Let's keep the good work up!
