What happens after you have HSV-1 or HSV-2

Recommended Posts

Macalon

Once somebody becomes infected with a herpes virus, the virus never leaves one's body. After the first herpes outbreak, the virus moves on the skin cells to neural cells. The virus stays within the nerve cells forever. But it really usually just stays presently there. In this stage, the virus is reportedly dormant, or asleep. But it really can become active once again.

Some things that could trigger herpes are:

Stress

Illness

Fever

Sun exposure

Menstrual durations

Surgery

Lean

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
