We both have HSV-2 - what about infecting new sites on our bodies?

Recommended Posts

Willimakeit

We both have HSV-2 (both diagnosed by IGG blood antibody tests). I (male) rarely get outbreaks and use acyclovir, supplements and diet to suppress any outbreaks. She rarely gets outbreaks, and they have been on the side of her body along her waistline, but until recently, not vaginally (at least not that she was aware).

Today, it appears she has some sores on the inside of her vagina. Everything we have read says we cannot reinfect each other, but what about creating new infection sites FROM each other? One information source on a web site said this was rare, but not impossible. It is also possible that she simply wasnt aware of the vaginal outbreaks. We are in a long-distance relationship, so sex is limited to weekends only, when we are together. So, maybe she wasnt even aware, and sexual activity simply aggravated it?

Any help here would be appreciated. Links to good sites for this specific information, or comments from you guys...

Thanks.

Hey Will, yes h 2 can outbreak anywhere in that boxer shorts area. Unfortunatly for us females, it can be internally as well. Tell her to get some Epsom salts for her bath waters. I have have ghsv2 for 25 years. You are correct you cannot reinfect each other with h2 genitally, but you can still outbreak anywhere in that genital area. This h lays in the Spinal Ganglia Nerves system, base of spine, so therefore the ob can be anywhere in or on that area. Maybe this ob is from stress?. This time of year brings on tons of stresses. Take care and you will make it ;) . Hugs, Truly, Ace

I was in a relationship with a positive woman for almost three years. There was no "migration" of infection sites. There were outbreaks most likely triggered by hormonal changes though, like when we started having sex after a long dry spell and she started wearing her "happy patch" again. The long distance thing has also most likely caused some changes in your diet and sleep habits? If she's got the antibodies then you can save the cost of the acyclovir, it's not your virus causing the obs. H is also frequently misdiagnosed, or other ailments are thought to be h check with a doctor if you want to be sure.
