FIRST TIME TO WEBSITE. HELP.... Had a single small spot show up on my penis. Never had anything like it occur previously. Showed up the morning after having oral and vaginal sex with my wife, each of the two previous days, like 6 hours after intercourse. Went to my doctor the next day and he was unsure but suggested testing for HSV-1 and HSV-2 as precaution. Lab Test Results:
IGG HSV-1 = <0.90 Negative
IGG HSV-2 = 9.55 (>1.09)
Needless to say I'm trying to wrap my brain around all of this.... Is it possible the above is a false positive? Have been tested in past and been negative. I don't know how I contracted it. All very upsetting but my real concern is my wife.
I'm married in a monogamous relationship and have not been with anyone else for over 3 years. My wife and I are very sexually active, having sex multiple times a week most weeks since August 2015. I think the longest we have gone without sex is like 2 weeks and that's been very rare. My wife has oral cold sore out breaks multiple times a year but to my knowledge hasn't had any genital herpe symptoms and has never been tested for HSV 1 or 2.
What is the likelihood my wife has HSV-2? That she contacted HSV-2 from me, that I contracted it from her or that we both came into the relationship with it? The reality is none of this really matters, I'm just so upset that it involves her. My worst nightmare.
Since the spot popped up I have refrained from being sexual with my wife. Felt like it would be a breach of trust to be sexual with her without telling her there could be an issue. I wanted the test results first and wanted to discuss with her so, if there was an issue, we could work through this together. Its been two weeks and she has started making comments about not having sex and asking if something is wrong SO I have to address this now.
Shouldn't she go to the dr? Shouldn't we go together? Shouldn't she get tested?
My doctor, whom she goes to for general stuff as well, has acted like no big deal. Told me I could have had this for years or gotten it six months ago, no one knows for sure and people have this and deal with this all the time. Obviously, if she is negative iy can't be a resent infection. He has suggested suppression therapy of 500mg Valacycovir daily for each of us.
Any thoughts or comments? Thank you.
First of let me tell you the intention and why this can be a great project, good investment and eventually something we could all benefit from.
A unique way of effort for funding our mutual problem with the ETH ERC20 Token.
Labcash is my idea born by our mutual friend HSV.
Just by looking at this forum I have noticed how much people complain about HSV funding (justified reason) and the institutions ignoring us at every possible step of the way.
When I need a doctor I never use public health because it would take me 6 months to get in line, instead I go to a private doctor and get all done in 30 minutes.
The same principle applies when we want something to be done such as HSV research, we can order a private laboratory that would conduct studies on our behalf without restrictions.
Raising funds to start/continue and eventually complete a study is difficult especially when we know that repeated funding is necessary.
The solution is offered by the blockchain and crypto assets.
You may or may not be familiar with cryptocurrency however it has massive advantages such as competing against other cryptocurrencies on an exchange that directly benefits us as the value of the Token goes up gives us more investment power and not only that but we are able to make our own acyclovir product that will not feed the big pharma but our chosen investment lab and our token.
The possible side effect is the volatility in the crypto market that would make the token more valuable than the initial purchase price making some extra profit for token holders (not the goal but a good one).
1. Tokens sold to HSV sufferers.
2. Signing the contract with the laboratory for drug development (Pivot park in the Netherlands is the chosen default).
3. Research begins.
4. Production and packaging of acyclovir on the lowest possible price for packaging, shipping, and reinvestment to the blockchain.
5. Sales and returns in the blockchain for future research.
6. Eventual new drugs will be discovered thanks to passive funding/market exploitation.
Token name: Labcash
If you are interested in participating in the project visit www.community-labs.eu or send an email on email@example.com for future clarification.
If you are interested in buying the Token you will need a chrome extension called Metamask (all explained on the website) then you can buy the Token on this link:
As always doing something is always better than nothing :)

Hi..Ive been browsing around the web, and find out that HSV1 might caused eye infection and ultimately blindness..how common is this? Anyone experiencing this before?
What’s up all!!
I just wanna let you guys in on my first year of having hsv-2. I’ve had a very little first outbreak 2 small “sores” that were kinda apart, was scared went to urgent care and requested blood work and full STD PANEL, everything came back negative except for HSV-1 which I had as a young boy, and HSV-2 via IGG blood test. I must have had it for a while since it takes a while to build antibodies ( my levels were like 8 or9). Another reason I was scared was my gf was having UTI symptoms which she tested positive for it but I had her go get tested for HSV and she was positive via IGM...she was given antivirals but she only took them for a week. Now fast forward to here, we do not have any outbreaks or they might be so small we don’t even notice. We have a great sex life and are going strong. We do not blame each other because we both didn’t know who carried it first. But anyways just wanted to give update on my year and how it doesn’t bother my at having this disease, I forget about it most of the time. Thank for reading and god bless you all!
I've known my fiance for couple of years, and in our country, before we get married, it is compulsary for the couple to screen for HIV test. The test showed negative for both of us. Then we decided to take an STD test (without any symptoms) just to make sure and this test include Syphyllis, Chlamydia n both type of HSV. The results came with me having negative for all STDs and my fiance having all negative except for HSV-1 (igG blood test).
I am under so much pressure right now to consider of calling off the wedding or continue with it. My concern is that how it going to affect my pregnancy and my life as a whole.
I love my fiance so much, I try to support him as much as I can. I just have certain worry about my future in terms of pregnancy and whether Im gonna contract HSV-1 oral or genital? Cause my fiance did not show any symptom either on his mounth or genital
Anyone can give me advice regarding this..Im so much appreciate it.
