Kinda Relieved

Recommended Posts

Xenonshot

Well i got my test results back for everything no HIV,Clamydia(SP),syphillius(Sp)etc. But i showed a .35 for HSV1 which negative is .90 and below HSV2 came back 0.00 so im asuming it is good. And im gonna get tested in a month. The results said i was exposed to the virus and that was why i had antibodies but didnt have the virus.... So im starting to lean more towards the side of a yeast infection because everytime i take a pee or change clothes it always smells like sex. I dunno maybe a false negative. either way as long as i dont have HSv2 im fine with it

once you have the antibodies, it means YOU HAVE the virus. You can boost your immune system to try and ward off symptoms, but once you have the virus, you will have it until you die. Being "exposed" to the virus is what doctors say instead of "hey, you have herpes" and my doctor told me the same thing "you've been exposed to the herpes virus" and guess what it still means the same thing "I HAVE HERPES"

Id get retested in a month, but you seem to be missing a key point either way, YOU already HAVE HERPES type 1, just may not show symptoms. Also, testing positive via blood for type 1 does not rule out where it is and there's a good chanc it is type 1 genital herpes. So just to clarify, type 1 isnt oral and type 2 isnt genital..........both occur in either region and so testing positive for type 1 does NOT rule out that you dont have it genitally.

OMG, this is so true, and we here know it and I would assume the doctors know it. When you read your words above, it makes me even more angry that HSV2, genital herpes has such a stigma. If all these years herpes was just called herpes, or just hsv1 or just hsv2 or just hsv, maybe those of us struggling with the emotional torment of this would not be happening?????

      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.
    • yadayadayadayada
      @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.
