Recommended Posts

I am so worried for my kids since finding out I have this, me and my toddler usually bathe together but I have now stopped that... I smother them with kisses constantly and now everytime they come for a kiss  I just let them kiss me on the cheek... ive read on google that you can pass it to them and it makes me feel so sad if this is true

There is good news all round here.

First, you have genital HSV. This means there is zero chance of transmission associated with kissing and hugging - there is absolutely nothing contagious about your mouth here as far as HSV-2 is concerned.

Further, bathing is also no problem. The virus is in your body and only at times on your skin's surface in that area. It does not float around in water hoping to attach itself. Probably avoid bathing with an outbreak, but apart from that, there's no pragmatic chance of transmission.

No need to go.to those extremes. If you caught ghsv from.a toilet everyone would have it.  Ita skin to skin contact. Relax before you get ocd

@Positivevibes91 I have had this for 10 years and was pregnant, gave birth, and have raised my son (now 6) with herpes. He does not have it.

I am careful if I have an outbreak to wash my hands carefully after using the bathroom, and I take the extra step of drying my privates with a paper towel or toilet paper after I've showered to avoid using the towel there, but that's about it. 

I still kiss, hug, cuddle, and share the bed on weekend mornings with him. 

Please remember that you just need to be a little careful when you have an outbreak, but other than that you and your children are fine. 

One other thing-- when I was diagnosed I was with my mom and she confided in me that she too had herpes and had since before I was born. She raised my two sisters and me and we never got it from her.

If the toilet seat is wet there is a slight possibility. In my opinion better safe than sorry.

Where did you get that information from it were transferred from a toilet seat everyone would have herpes.  

The virus dries out when exposed to air. There are no reported cases of pple getting it from a toilet seat.

If the toilet seat is wet there is a possibility. Lets say someone has a current outbreak sits on a toilet and somehow it gets wet. Then someone else with non intact skin sits on the toilet not realizing its wet. Its unlikely but I'm sure it could happen.

How does their vagina touch the seat. Maybe if you had sores on your bum but really. You are way overthinking it

Buttocks or back of thighs. I've been doing plenty of research. It's unlikely but possible. Over thinking? Maybe. I prefer well informed. I've even heard of people contracting it from the gym.

      Medical knowledge in the 50s doubled every 50 years. But guess how fast the knowledge is doubling now? 1 year. Cures are coming. This is why there is a worldwide debate on healthcare. Some want to own your health others want the cures for free. You being desperate will trample on the next person to get it whereas someone else will hope the cure is free for all.  The fight isn't for a cure anymore it's for who owns the cure. The people or the elite. With medical knowledge doubling every year and soon every 6 months with the assistance of AI a cure will be ready by 2025.  Finally the west has competition who wants to be the world's leader; China. They want to cure diseases because they want rid of capitalism and religion. May the winner have it all.

      This isn't some 1940s crime detective novel mate! We don't have process of elimination, we have active diagnosis. But to hell with that. You do not have to prove anything to doctors. They're just a bunch of clowns with meaningless tests! You're the man, you make the decisions. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don't, you're right. Be a man, be confident, if you have HSV-2 then own up to it. Stop camping around at doctors offices. Stride right back to that girl in your loosest jocks with lots of stretch room for those swollen gonads. Slam open the bedroom door and announce you're here to show her what a night with real man feels like, minus Trojans!

      To answer your question, I have been living with pain and burning in my penis for a year now.  My symptoms started within 48 hours of attempted sex with someone who has HSV2. Doctors can’t figure it out.  I’m 90% certain HSV2 is the culprit.  All my issues started directly after the exposure.  Itching, tingling, constipation, nerve burning, testicle pain and back pain. And they all come and go. I only got a large bump in my pubic area days after the exposure.  A large amount of people with herpes don’t get typical looking lesions, so you can’t base it on that.   Hopefully you find your answer.  I pretty much have mine but have to prove it to my doctors by way of elimination.

      OMG if I had only known that 5 years ago... doctors have no clue of this.
