      I'm excited about this vaccine and think it has a great chance to be approved.  However, this is not a "curative"vaccine. The vaccine is not "knocking out" the virus in the ganglia.  Rather, it is preventing the virus from reaching the ganglia when the virus newly infects a living thing.  Once the virus is in the ganglia, I understand this vaccine does not reach there.  This vaccine is not removing the latent HSV.  Rather, it's preventing it getting there in mice that were previously uninfected.  That's an important difference with the FHC work which is curative.  The work X-Vax has published recently is prophylactic work.   The vaccine may have therapeutic application--X-Vax has said it may.  But we will have to see further studies to see how much if any therapeutic user this will have.

      I'd keep in mind the fact that AAVs produce an immune response.  So if you get this DIY thing, it may later be more difficult to benefit from the actual cure.  Dr. Jerome at FHC confirmed that, if you have been exposed to AAV, making it work on you again may require immune suppressants, etc.  FHC is using AAVs as well.

      Hey @lar26 - well @Surfersparadise didn't read what you or I wrote. The situation is well beyond whether disclosure is an issue so it is not relevant in this context. It is a bit rich I have to say in receiving a lecture from someone with herpes who has not disclosed themselves for the bulk of their life. This is about making a rational decision on the basis of facts of the risks and what it means in a whole of life context. The odds are not an issue for the true decision your partner needs to make. If your partner cannot accept you as a person with HSV-1 orally, then sadly they can't and they are hence not the person for you. Unless someone is prepared to accept you for all that you are completely, then they are not partner material. You do not need to accept any compromise.

      @WilsoInAus thoughts on @Surfersparadise? I read up on an article that said risk of transmission while on antivirals is 1%. Combined with lysine, I haven't had an outbreak in forever.

I just found out I'm 4 weeks pregnant. I've had genital herpes outbreaks for the last 6 months . I was exposed to the virus 2 years ago. Ive been having an outbreak once a month, but now its constant. Im on valtrex, herbs, special diet, etc. im really worried about transmitting the virus to my baby in the womb as well as childbirth

I don't think you can transmit to the baby in your womb, there is a risk of transmitting during childbirth if you're experiencing a current OB at that time, you may need to opt for a c section

Your obs are likely pregnancy related. I understand that its thru vaginal birth or if you get it while pregnant is the issue.  Surely your dr would know this?

And also, when your little one is ready to enter into the world, your doctor will do a check for any outbreaks. If you do have an outbreak you make likely have a c-section.

A propósito, alguém pode me dar uma dúvida; Já houve, pelo menos relatórios aqui neste espaço, casos de transmissão para a criança no útero?

I gave birth at the beginning of this year and I'm currently pregnant again 4 months later. I was told at the hospital I was positive for ghsv2, however I've had it since 2014 assuming my results were accurate I know who it came from. My baby was completely healthy I've never taken valtrex and probably had maybe 2 or 3 obs during my pregnancy. At the time of her delivery I had one and she was fine, but she had to be in the nicu for some days until they got her results back. Seeing as your infection isn't newly acquired you'll be fine and if there's a ob at the time of birth I'm sure they'll give you a cesarean.

Question, @Plsneedhelp — did you have outbreaks during the first trimester of your pregnancies and still turn out okay?

As stated by many on this thread, the only concern with herpes during pregnancy is during delivery. You'll be checked by the doctor at that time an if you're having an OB, they will perform a C-section
