Not Sure GHSV1

Recommended Posts

liliwanglw

Hello, last year i was out of the country and experienced a very odd outbreak genitally. I did not have any pain or itching from it. It was just this bad infection that you could only really tell if you looked and it was a little difficult to wipe. I couldnt get back to the states fast enough. When I did my doctor said its late for a swab test but did. It came back that I had a bad bacterial infection but she said i dont know how it started. And she was sure if it started out as herpes. I had a blood test a month before that said negative for hsv1 and 2. But I do get cold sores. I had a cold sore outbreak, and didnt know. I had oral sex with my guy at the time. And was thinking maybe it got transferred back to me that night? I developed ocd and anxiety over telling these guys that werent my boyfriends what happened. It was painful and sometimes unccessary bc I would tell people about my potential herpes when it had nothing to do with them. Now bc I am unsure what happened with me, I been avoiding having a boyfriend. I got very drunk and high this weekend and slept with someone I dont know very well. I dont even remember having sex and he did not use a condom. I dn what to do. I dont really know him and he is very well known in my community. Should I tell i could potentially have ghsv1? or let it go. I am sad bc I didnt have a chance to be aware to tell him to use a condom. Last year my gyno yelled at me always use a condom bc Im not 100 percent sure what happened with you and it could be herpes. But this was a bad mistake and I dn what to do. I havent had any issuses since last year, and i been so lost. Please someone help me. Its an ocd I live with now. I felt relief that I told my past partners and everything but now i have this problem again and dont think i should tell. please help

She wasn't sure if it started as herpes*

Welcome @liliwanglw to the site. There are a lot people and views to help you here.

Here's a few thoughts on your situation.

  • You suggest you may have oral cold sores (oral HSV-1); this is more likely than not. However it is also possible to mistake other things like staph or certain pimples/fordyce spots as cold sores. 
  • If however you do have an oral HSV-1 infection, then a genital infection is extremely unlikely given your existing immune system response.
  • You had testing that said negative for HSV-1 and HSV-2. The question is what specific test did you have as there are sometimes incorrect or inconclusive tests applied by some doctors. Only the IgG type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2 has diagnostic value... is this what you had? If not your status is a completely open question.
  • The possibility of having an oral infection transfer to your genitals via your partner is not realistic, it pragmatically does not happen.
  • The chance of transmitting this to the random one niter, one in several thousand and maybe zero if he already has HSV-1.

I feel the only thing that is clear now is that you need a blood test for IgG antibodies type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2. This action is the only thing that will advance your thinking. I have little doubt that it will put you in a much better place.

I mean be careful of what HE could give YOU!

I really wouldn't worry too much about GHSV1 and I wouldn't go around telling people.

Look out and take care of yourself first. Most people don't even bother telling other's and many people don't even get tested so be careful. And insist on using a condom of it is someone you don't know very well.

 

Take care honey X

      Little update again:  No improvements for me, still getting the same: constant redness on my penis, with tiny blisters forming as the old ones heal. This is together with continuous lethargy and a pulsating pain in my right groin lymph node. I also have sleeping problems, that are associated with the outbreaks. Usually, if the OB gets slightly better, I'll also sleep better. But right now, I wake up every morning too early like 6:30 feeling like my body is fighting something and I can't relax and sleep anymore. I get under 7 hours of sleep each night, but my body needs around 8-9 to feel normal. Unlike some others, I'm extremely sensitive to having enough sleep, which is also related to my heavy workouts. Of course it could be also the other way around, that I'm getting OBs because of poor sleep.  I went to get my bloods tested about a month ago and everything came back as normal (full blood count, thyroids etc.) but I found my vitamin D levels were low. I've been since spending a bit more time in the sun (normally avoid it) and eating a Vitamin D3 supplement daily (5000iu) without improvements to my OBs. I'm so disappointed, as I already got exited being onto something after finding that low Vitamin D-levels are associated inability of the body to fight viral diseases. Based on my research, 5000iu of D3 for several weeks should've definitely increased the levels by now, so I doubt that was the cause  . My testosterone and estradiol levels were also a bit high as I just changed testosterone medication, but I have confirmed in the past that this is not likely the cause.  My cortisol level was 17.3 ug% measured around 2pm (normal 3.7-19.4 ug% before 10AM, 2.9-17.3 ug% after 5PM). This could suggest that my cortisol levels are a bit high, but they are quite hard to measure and change during the day. I recall @IcantThinkofaName you suggested measuring these. Any comments? This was on a week day without any physical activities beforehand, except riding to the lab on a motorcycle in hot weather. Anyways, I can't really find any info on how to reduce these levels apart of relaxing more. For the record, I have tried quitting the gym completely (etc.).  I used some Xanax on the weekend which made me sleep well and feel much better. But obviously such addictive and strong benzodiazepine is not a long term solution. Next week I will try some cannabis to see if that helps with the sleep. I will get some indica strain and will vape it with a herbal vaporizer.  I will not give up the fight, next to try on the list: Confirm Vitamin D levels are back normal Quit whey protein for a week  Cannabis before bed  Amenalief at a higher dosage (200mg/day) Pritelivir from China Singles/varicella vaccine(?) ... any ideas welcome!

      If I could just piggy back off your idea and add a suggestion  how about with the same reasons you listed in your original statement, you / we start some type of petition or a mass email chain aimed at 60 minutes asking would they consider such a report ?

      That is interesting and I might try to stop it for a while or change brands. The thing is though, that I have been using whey protein daily for the last 10 years. I did change brand some time ago though to a pure, unflavoured whey isolate. I doubt that's the cause, but it's definitely worth a try. I'll see if I can find some alternatives for fast absorbing protein after my workouts. Maybe I can put chicken breast in the blender or similar.  I once tried this before I even hard Herpes and had a terrible side effect. It caused an itchy rash all over my groin.  Protected vaginal sex during days where my immunity was very low. Had been binge drinking on a party island.. but the condom broke, which is when I most likely caught the virus.

      I don't think there's any awareness whatsoever of herpes in China. So I doubt it's a priority. Hopefully our western "awareness" won't spread to China any time soon.
