Hi Everyone,

Can someone with a common cold and flu give one herpes?

You need to have the herpes virus to pass the herpes virus.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean?

Annie Singh; you can ask the same question a dozen times, but you'll get the same answer, which Shayna has already answered.

Read the info at the beginning of this site, and if you still have questions, then post them.

What are you confused about? The relationship between the flu virus and herpes? or Having a compromised immune system which results in sores arround the mouth when you have the flu?

Try to be more specific and I'll see what I can do to help.

I was with Mister X for the past 2 years, he lived in another city, we would visit each other every 3 months, each time we met we would have sex often to make up for the time we lost. I met him for Thankgiving 2006, he had a severe cold and flu, we still had sex the same way for days being indoors. I visit him in May 2007, we had sex again, but more than we had previously, i mean instead of 3 and 4 times, We were 6 and 8 time some days. I came back home, Mr X call me and told me he had a break out of bumps and trouble ureating, went to him doctor and i told me it might be herpes, his doctor said he should not kiss and had sex until this heal properly. I was due to visit him in June but MrX said i should cancel my airline ticket and get tested for herpes. So I got tested and found out i had Herpes 1 and 2. I was devasted, my doctor said i was a carried of the disease. MrX broke up with me, saying i cheated on him. he claim that his test came back negative. i think he is telling lies. Is there anyway i could tell how long i have this disease? I have no physical symstoms but mentally it is taking a toll on me.

I have not many sexually relationship in the past only one guy, so i have contact him and ask him to do a blood test. Another one of my question is why didnot MrX get herpes we had sex more than 75 times, i am not being selfish but these are question i have.

Just because Mr X got a negative test result, it doesn't mean he is free and clear with herpes. If they did a culture from one of his bumps, sometimes they don't get enough virus to make the culture work, and if he got a blood test, and this was his very first outbreak, he might not have had time for it to show up in his system yet. Mr X's symptoms sound awfully like herpes, and if he retests and the bloodwork is positive the next time it would lead one to think he had been exposed fairly recently (as in your May visit perhaps).

Herpes has nothing to do with the regular flu (which you get respiratory symptoms, runny nose, cough, etc), except, if your body is weak, the theory is that you might be more likely to have an outbreak. It is also possible (but not really known) that if you body is weak you might be more susceptible to catching herpes in the first place. However, in your case, the flu seems like it hit at a different time from the herpes symptoms so it really seems irrelevant.

It sounds like if Mr X just got this from you, your first guy may have shared this with you. Hopefully he will be cooperative and get the blood test done so you might have more of an idea of how long you've had it, and also have an explanation to give Mr X as to where you got it.

Hope things work out for you...

The only thing is I have not been with anyone since the last 2 years we have been together, however I had contacted my old BF and told him of my situation, i also ask hin to take a blood test but is having to be persistance. Do u think it might be possible for MrX to had given it to me. When i first met him every time he kiss me my face around my mouth would get irritated and red, like i had a rash, i thought it was his mustache, so i would make him shave, but that did not help, the only time this didnot happen is this time my May visit, he knew i complained about my face the first time and after that, so this time we joke about it and he said my face got use to his lips. I do not why I want to find out where i got this from. I am leaving everything in God's hands because I didnot not cheat on him and cannot give him an explaination, Thank you for being here, i have no one i could dicuss about this, my family is very orthodox. My parents would have a heart attack if they found out.

      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.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
