Devasted and no support

Recommended Posts

Anon_mj

Hello, i received positive results today for HSV2 and im completely devastated. Ive been with the same woman for 13 years, 8 of them married, with 1 child and 1 due soon. Im terrified when i tell her i will lose my family since i can only imagine her first reaction will be that i was unfaithful. I was no angel before we met and i did stray once early early on but i have been a good husband since. Ive had STD tests in the past and always tested negative for everything except HSV1 and now this out if nowhere since i have never shown any symptoms. I dont know what to do and could really use some advice/help please.

First thing is to definitely confirm the test, that you've hadn't the right one and the result is a clear positive.

What test did you have and what were the exact results?

Swab on an open sore. Never experienced an outbreak until now i assumed it was a friction burn from masturbation but dr swabbed and said positive for HSV2. :/

Have you have a negative for IgG HSV-2 More than 12 weeks after a partner other than your wife?

Does your wife have oral cold sores?

do you think the swab was properly typed? How long did  it take for the culture result to come through?

Not sure about the IgG tests. Ive had STD tests done by my primary in the past but not sure what exactly was ordered.

wife has not tested positive for hsv 1 or 2 and was tested recently since shes pregnant. 

The swab was done at an urgent care and results took 3 days. 

I have tested positive for oral HSV 1 in the past very long ago since i suffer from cold sores on very rare occasions but doesnt seem its ever passed to my wife.

Although there are many possibilities, it does appear the more likely is that you are carrying the HSV-2 virus.

If you get an IgG test immediately and its positive for HSV-2 you will probably need to include infection from a previous partner.

Do you think you were infected with HSV-1 as an adult?

No i was infected with HSV1 over 20 years ago ive had cold sores most of my life just very scarcely. One every year or every other year. However somehow never passed it on to my wife it seems.

She may also have a childhood infection that hasn't shown up in testing. Not unusual not to transmit if you're careful with your cold sores.

The only way I feel you can learn more is with an IgG test immediately. Until then you need to assume you carry HSV-2 and your wife does not.

Is it possible to carry HSV2 this long and not infect her? Still learning about what exactly is going on and just feeling so devasted.

Previous positive results of HSV1 were >5.0 and HSV2 <0.9 and these were years ago

Thank you Lisa. Sorry i think i put it wrong. HSV1 was greater than 5 and HSV2 less than 0.9? Is that still positive? Or could i still have had hsv2 at that time?

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals? 
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
