Hi, will my symptons/contagiousness decrease over time?

Recommended Posts

sir

Hello, I've heard that the first year is the worst for OBs.

After the horror of my initial one, I had nothing for almost six months and then noticed a couple of painless bumps.

This is when I got checked out and told I had GSV.

This second outbreak was caused by the stress I was facing at the time and went after a week. Having just noticed another small bump about a week later I want to know will these symtoms calm down in time.. or get more constant.

Once my body gets used to the virus will it be less likely to return/spread to others?

Thanks for reading.

Hey sir welcome to our site :wavey: . How did you test? If your genital herps is h2, that initial outbreak, for me was Hell, and it is usually the worst. If your ghsv is type h1 , usually from oral sex, you may never have another outbreak. That h1 likes the facial/oral location. It sheds less and is less contagious. If you are female, it is also harder for us females to pass herps. If it is ghsv2. Like me, it prefers the genital location and lies in the Spinal Ganglia Nerves system located at base of spine, it will still be harder to pass. This h spreads anywhere in the , what we call boxer shorts region. And after the first year is less contagious. I'm ghsv2 for 25 years now. I take daily supressive therapy, Valacyclovir, and I'm married 22 years to a non h man. I also have a daughter. I have only had two outbreaks ever, the 2nd just about a year ago. It was stressed induced and I was in the process of having to find a new doctor. Also my only child was leaving for college, empty nest syndrome, LOL.. If you properly tested whether it was blood or culture, that test should show numeric valves, numbers for each type h. Like h1 or h2.and what type test like Igm or Igg, if you were tested by blood.

To answer your question, Yes! Over time we become less contagious and taking antivirals and Vit.b12, all these help to keep shedding down, supress outbreaks and the Vit. gives energy, relieves stresses and promotes nerves health. Also taking L-Lysine helps to keep h from replicating in the body. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read all you can. Feel free to ask any questions. Take care hon. Truly, Ace :hithere:

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
