Hsv2 trans.


Recommended Posts

hello I've posted in here before about my case but here it is again. My boyfriend has just found out he was positive for herpes back in March. I also got tested and came back as negative but positive for hsv1. I know I have had a cold sore back in middle school but not one every since then. We do have unprotected sex along with his daily dose of Valtrex and I want to have a baby but all the worries about transmission to the baby is killing me. Also should I be worried about passing it to my 3 year old daughter if I do come into contact with it ? I normally sleep in the bed with underwear on and she sleeps with me . What if she brushes against me ? Or if she just has her underwear on ? Or shorts? Can I pass it to her this way ? I've shared baths with her before too and i am just freaking out that she could have rubbed against me .. I have gotten tested again for herpes and I am awaiting my results for the second time

Since your bf knows he has it and is being proactive in taking daily antivirals, the risk of you getting it is quite small. Most people get this from someone who does not know they have it, not from someone who does. Also the longer you have this virus the less you are contagious.

Even if you were to contract genital herpes having children should not be a problem. Every day, thousands of women who have genital herpes gives birth with no complications. And if you breast feed your child you pass along antibodies to it.

If you contract it genitally, you can shed the virus from your legs but the risk is very small that your child would get it that way.

Good luck!

If I were to shed from my legs wouldn't that have to be like rubbed with friction into her skin or it is the gential way for her to get it ? I'm just scared she may have sat on my lap in the tub. The other night I got so hot I took my shorts while she slept in the bed with me .. She was fully clothed

Why worry about something you don't have. Even if you did contract genital herpes the virus would need someway to get in the skin like a cut or something.

You are really worrying about nothing.

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
