A question about hsv1

Recommended Posts

sunnysouth2424

I had a major OB last month in my mouth and genitals. My doctor didn't swab me, but he diagnosed me and put me on Valtrex. My sexual partner went and got tested, and he is positive for hsv1. Can I reasonably assume that that's the kind I have, too? I know I need to wait another month before getting a blood test.

It may be a safe assumption if your partner has HSV 1. But did your partner get tested for hsv2. How were they tested. Doctors might look at it and say well it's on your mouth so it's type 1 but really not know. It is best to have him get the blood test typed and diagnosed that way if it all comes back s HSV 1 it's probably hsv1 for you but you should still get checked you could have had it before your partner and not known.

Okay, thanks for the advice. It really sucks not knowing and having to wait another month to even get tested. He just said he went to the doctor and told them what I said, and that it came back positive for the type you have in your mouth, which I assume he meant hsv1. I'm not really talking to him any more.

That's what I was thinking. It was also on my nipple and in my mouth.

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
