I dont get it??

Recommended Posts

So yesterday my swab test came back positive which while reading online is pretty accurate, and i am currently waiting for blood work results...but I have no idea which test my ob ordered. I have one tiny little spot which was never blisters it just basically started out looking like lessions and healed in about 6 days I had the swab taken on the 3rd day. This spot is more in my groin area then in my genital area and is supposed to be my first outbreak because I have never had an issue before. After digesting the news the last 24 hours I am still not understanding how this happened or how it could be herpes. I am having none of the other symptoms. Slight itching at times but I also stopped shaving so all the hair is coming back in...but no fever, never felt sick, no tingling, no burning, all I had was this little sore. Unfortunately I was seeing someone new and of course told him right away, it ended rather quickly which did not surprise me because it's understandable. But how am I ever supposed to know if I am having another outbreak if I never had any signs with this one? Does that mean I could never be with someone who tested negative because I could give it to them at any time? That is my biggest fear right now, sex to me is just a guilt trip waiting to happen because even if a guy decided he wants to take the risk I feel like I could give it to him and then he would be just as devastated when he finds out. Also what is the best resource for learning everything I need to know, I have googled endlessly and I am hoping to find something more informative and detialed as to the do's and do not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That's basically it in a nutshell. Sure you could have sex with someone who dosent have it if they feel the risk is worth it which people will. But if you do give it to them you may feel shitty about it. And it's a likely possibility that you could give it to someone. But I think the important factor is that these individuals will be making their own decision if they want to take the risk or not. I think you could agree if you found the right true love and they had H you would take the risk because you'd find the reward worth it.

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
