scared?!

2 posts in this topic

Hey, ive had ghsv1 for over a year now and i haven't had an outbreak since my first but a few days ago a bump appeared on my 'mons pubis' it kinda just looked like a pimple and none of my sores were in that area for my first outbreak so i kinda just thought it was something else? but this morning it feels a bit sore and i think maybe it looks a bit more like a herpes sore now? I was just wondering if the herpes can appear in new places then...or it is actually just a pimple or something. The reason this is worrying me is because i got somewhat intimate with a guy last night (which i havent done since i've been diagnosed) i didnt let him touch me, but we did like dry hump a bit (which i know i probably shouldnt of even done that tbh) and cuddled in our underwear and stuff, idk if im just being paranoid but im so scared that he got it just from that small encounter or if maybe i touched myself and then touched him IDK help

This is as close to zero risk for him as it gets, so you can rest easy on that score.

Is this an outbreak? Maybe, but go with your experience of the sores previously. For many people, outbreaks are in a similar place of similar nature. Only you can judge whether this is different enough on these counts.

      Boil is my guess too, but if you have concerns then please attend your doctor. If you have been having sex with partner(s) whose STD status you do not know then please consider an STD panel that includes at least HIV, Hep A/B/C, gon, syph, chlam, trich, HSV 1/2.

      I remember trying to look into this some time ago but best I could come up with was that the chance was say in the range of 1-10% for the sexual episode. Obviously the nature of the outbreak, its positioning etc. all plays a role. You suggest this is HSV-2 with a diagnosis over 12 years ago? Have you checked the type with a blood test? May be a chance it is HSV-1 that your husband may already have for example. Agree that antivirals have no preventative properties, only benefit is taking the edge of the impact of an initial infection if this occurs (which as mentioned is still the realms of quite unlikely). Having HSV-1 does not provide any protection from HSV-2 so the figures show. Interestingly the other way around there is almost complete immunity, that is, people with an established HSV-2 infection are much less likely to be infected with HSV-1.

      You are more at risk when there is an outbreak so it is possible but as the other person said he may already have it anyway because if you have been in a relationship with him and having sex over a frequent period it is more likely that he would have it according to the experts.  And if he takes an antiviral straight away it does not stop him from getting it I'm not sure what the above person was referring to there

      If a person tells you that their partner has been tested and is negative then you can take that as a yes it can help. No symptoms does not mean not infected. Meds and condims reduce to 1%.

      Yes!!!  If antivirals stopped us from being contagious we would all be celebrating naked in Times Square.

      It is still possible to pass the virus while on antivirals.
