Is it possible to be immune to Herpes? I have a friend who had unprotected sex with her partner that had and told her up front of his misfortune with the virus; her beinging the hopeless romantic that she is, didn't let the virus come between them no matter what. Low and behold, she would have intercourse even during the onset of an outbreak, in the middle, as well as during the viral sheading phase.

They have been together for 2yrs now, and she gets tested every 6months and her test results show no infection. In fact her antibodies are abnormally low.

What are your reasonings behind this amazing phenomenon?

Man she's lucky!

Not to be a pessimist BUT (and that's a big but too!) it sounds like Russian Roulette to me!

This virus is so insidious and sneaky. I think it can hide itself for a long time while actually being present in a person. Especially if your friend is having sex with someone during prodome and actual outbreaks.

I dunno what to say, except...you may want to give her the site to our home page here.

I was with my husband 7 years before i caught it, cant understand why now, not then, but it did catch up with us.

I also carry the hpv virus but have not given that to him YET!!!!!

I was with my boyfriend for 3 years having unprotected sex all the time (we didnt know he carried it, he was asymptomatic) anyhow, it took 3 years for me to get it. Not all time when a person has sex with someone who has it will be infected. It takes a time when the virus is active on the skin, visibly or not visibly and it is a game of chance. If it happens to be active on the skin when you have contact then you will get it, but there are tons of times when it is inactive or when there are symptoms still but the virus has retreated back to the nerves so theres a chance it would not be contracted. I would also have to say to your friend to be very careful, it is like Russian roulette exactly and one of these times she will not be so lucky. She may not care much by the sound of it, but I can guarantee things will be totally different once she is aware she has it. Also, blood tests sometimes for whatever reason do not show antibodies, when in fact a person actually does have the virus, it takes a while for some people to test positive, and also the virus is very tricky and hides. If she has not had a visible outbreak yet it is possible the virus is already in her body (perhaps shedding asymptomatically or not already) but the antibodies wont show up until shes had an oubtreak that triggers their response so tell her not to be so sure she does not have it yet. Also, the only way to be sure is to keep getting blood tests every month and also being aware that it is possible to have the virus and not have it show up in the blood for some so its important to become educated. I hope for her sake she becomes aware of all of this.

I don't see how any human could be immune to herpes. Lucky? Yes. Immune? No.

Most "amazing phenomenons" in life, aren't. My gut feeling is that she's lying to you, which is her right as long as she is not exposing you to the virus. The only people who have a right to know her status are those who could be infected by her.

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.
