So here's my story...

Recommended Posts

Well, I've had a really rough couple of days lately...I guess I'll start by saying that I very recently got HSV1. I know this because for the first time in my entire life I got a cold sore. It was a shock, but when I asked a girl who I was recently seeing, she said that she has always been getting them since she was a little girl. That left no doubt in my mind. I was very frustrated at the time, but then a bigger fear started hitting me. The day I felt "tingling" on my lip I performed oral sex on her. Of course at the time I didn't know the tingling would lead to a cold sore since I've never had one before. My fear is did I give it to her genitally? and also, I had sex with her after (with a condom) but for a brief moment there was unprotected skin to skin contact...did I maybe pass it on to myself genitally as well? I'm new to all this and have no idea. I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks

It is possible but probably not likely. Stay protected and keep an eye out for anything strange and if you do notice something go see a doctor immediatly.

      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
