2nd ob

2 posts in this topic

So last night before bed I was sitting there and noticed a pimple in the same area.  There was no swollen glands this time or nothing, the next a little cluster, much more milder of an ob.  Do the ob get weaker with time? This is my 2nd ob and has been 8 months since my first one.  Is that considered good? I do not take daily anti vitals to suppress it. Does anyone ever have similar outbreaks? Is that considered asympotomatic? Will my obs get less and less with time ? 

 

thanks

This is a fairly typical experience with herpes, yes. The outbreak you have today is likely to be what you'll experience in future. As for frequency, this can be expected to reduce over time. At 2 in your first year, that's pretty low to start with, the trends are toward even fewer though.

      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.
