I'm at the 10 month mark post positive results. I'm having something...I just noticed it last night but it's not remotely like an OB that most people describe.

Other than that, things are going good. My guy finally proposed this last Saturday (7-21-07). I've got a ring and everything. He'll be home in 13 months.

I traveled with a few friends to see him and one had her step-daughter with her. We got to talking about shit as a group and I spilled about the herpes. I'm extremely open with it and am always informing people that they are not safe, no matter how much they think they are. I'm just a nice girl and something bad happened.

Anyway, this poor girl (19) has HSV2 and has been so embarrassed about it and never able to talk to anyone who understands. Physicians and nurses are genuinely stupid when it comes to caring for us LOL. She's on Valtrax but there's such a social stigma associated with HSV that it's hard to find someone in the 'real world' that has to deal with it too. Her step-mom actually thanked me later because it's been really hard for her to deal with not having anyone to understand....sort of how we all felt before we found our support forums and such.

Congrats for you and I am glad that she finally has someone to talk to. This just goes to show that we do not know who has this virus and it is sort of difficult for most people to tell some they have it. That is why this site is so helpful and informative.

      When I broke out/ shed it usually was on my backside left side, my  upper crack or back right below the belt! Doggy style is my absolute favorite position which makes him very vulnerable! I think there definitely is an advantage to wearing some sexy clothes or latex! Or even the liquid gloves. I think the biggest problem is that people shave now and they nick and cut themselves! That leads them open for infection on any part of the boxer area!

      I’d build on this to say that the volume of virus is critical. It has been observed that shedding instances where there are 10^7 virions are required for a pragmatic chance to actually get through the skin and it’s natural defences. Most shedding instances are well below this threshold. I’d also suggest that for many asymptomatic transmissions, most of the virus comes to the surface during the sexual act itself. So little point testing beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing that. Very resourceful.

      I wasn't following the conversation closely, but yes, all that matters in terms of being contagious is if the virus makes it to the skin.

      @Cas9 isn't that a "technicality"? From the sound of it this means that on a cellular level there is a daily battle but at the end of the day the virus can't transmit until it is present on the skin... right? I mean the question will still be: how many days is the virus present and transmittable. The mechanism (the technicality) is important but also not important... but I could be wrong, just trying to interpret.
