before having "the talk"

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that the majority of people will tell someone they're interested in dating about their h, without ever really knowing their partners status. Since most people who have h are assymptomatic and doctors usually won't test w/o an outbreak, tons of people think they're disease free but aren't. There's what a 75% chance your partner has type 1 and 25% or so that they have type 2. And of course the possibility they have something else. So why put yourself out on a limb when they likely don't know their own status?? I think the best thing to do is hold off until you've both been tested for everything and have the results right there.

I agree Misty. I think both parties should get tested and compare notes.

I remember a story of disclosure on here where the guy disclosed his gh2. The woman he was seeing was hesitant to continue to date him. She was tested and found out she had h1&2 and was afraid he would reject her. Interesting..

I totally agree. People are so quick to throw themselves under the bus when really, you have no idea about your partner (and usually neither do they for that matter) until you both get tested.

And if people say they have been recently tested how many of them even know about HSV or that it is not usually included in STD testing.

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
