      @Laguna I will try to look into it tonight but I am skeptical about that NO image/ not much info LinkedIn account. @Just a human being  It would be good if u elaborate on 5CC, Nevertheless I will check on it as well.

      Few leaders in the community wants to speak to anyone else about it, few leaders in the community wants to have constructive adult discussions, people block, ostracise, fail to critically think, actively prevent support or constructive dialogue, censor, ban, flame, doxx, humiliate, harass actively refuse to allow it, actively work to prevent it...yet so many people in the actual community want to talk about it, want the truth! Our society is insane, deeply conditioned and divided. I have to say I am developing a deep respect for the H/C forum as the only place one human beings voice is heard. We actively prevent the very healing we all need.

      People say they want a cure but some days I wonder. If you express how stressful it’s been to support a small cohort through treatment with limited evidence most do not understand, when you ask for support or your struggles to cope with people’s trauma in treatment, or the ingrained societal perceptions, when you try to talk about the evidence it’s like you’ve done some evil thing! Apparently going against the grain to do what’s right is not worthy of human understanding or support! Expressing human vulnerability also appears to be incredibly evil! Damn! Any weakness or difficulties damn your just not worthy of care, support or respect!  After over a year in the space it’s so clear to me why there has been no progress. You are completely ostracized from the community for speaking out on this topic. How many are voiceless here too scared to speak? Yet we rarely hear from you. When you are successful you just disappear (Of course because we don’t hear from you you don’t exist! You must be a “conspiracy theory”. And even if you did then you would just be anecdotal and oh yeah that publishing evidence when they attempt to discredit it... hmm be interesting to hear the “conspiracy” stories on that one...)and I understand why as no one would listen to you anyhow! I hope for anyone reading this you get out alive lest you become a lost soul in purgatory stamping out hope for others due to confusion weaved in science and medicine.

      Not directly on HSV, but this general overview of where gene editing is, is a very good read. Recommend at least skimming it. A lot of excitement is building around gene editing.  https://67c5cfaa-bdc0-42a5-95c4-a822adc972c7.filesusr.com/ugd/80a6fd_a53ed12021a54292bb50ed1255e31118.pdf

      It s not really possible to ban anyone from this forum. Some people would just get back on and create a reign of terror in their wrath. I’ve seen it before. In the end everyone has to accept them and it teaches the group tolerance. Trust me I’ve been through the same feelings and I don’t want to act like I’m always Mr positive or anything cos I am Just a human being!And honestly we need to consider others welfare. They would be lost without this forum. I think if you took it away they would suffer serious trauma. It just takes a small amount of time to work around it! I have deep respect for @MikeHerp it takes a lot of work to get something like this off the ground! I think genetic research is very valuable and important!  I have duel interests human systems and health and agriculture. In the agriculture realm I’m not a big fan of say Monsanto’s brand of genetic research in application. I am a big fan of genetic research to inform plant breeding!  I think this is good work that will be insightful for humans in the future! Don’t take a few difficult people to heart! Trust me I do know it’s difficult.  I didn’t even read a single comment of theirs! Wow that’s big for me! Back to Fred Hutch....

so im very confused i got genital herpes in January never been checked but i knew i had it ,,outbreak was horrific and iv had an outbreak since always on my buttock near the anus.. i got these results today but im so confused at to what it means can someone help me please 

You have tested positive for: 
- Herpes Simplex I antibodies 

You have tested negative for: 
- Herpes Simplex II antibodies 

This result only demonstrates that you have the antibodies for Herpes Simplex I. This is a very common result and does not indicate that you require treatment - it only demonstrates that you have come into contact with the virus at some point.

Back in January, prior to your outbreak, did someone perform oral sex on you?  If they did, and based on your test results, it suggests that you may have genital HSV1.  

You should have your current butt outbreak swabbed/tested to identify if it is HSV1 or 2.

I'm guessing that your test was an IGG, best to verify.    

What was your initial outbreak like that makes you believe it was herpes?  'how many have you had since?

HSV1 is most commonly associated with oral herpes, but seems like many can acquire it through oral if they were never exposed to HSV1 earlier in life.  Do you ever remember having cold sores?  That would indicate the test results if you did.  

I think the only way to be certain is to have the next outbreak swab tested to rule out, or confirm.

It sounds to me like you have a genital HSV 1 infection which generally you get very minimal reoccurrence is about breaks but if you do I suggest you go and get the blister swabbed to be doubly sure.  

When they do a blood test and it comes up positive it means that you have had it for longer than 3 months So think about when you last had oral sex and your first outbreak
