Has anyone transmitted while on Antivirals?

Recommended Posts

eightyfour

I'm wondering if anyone had been taking the antiviral medication daily as a suppressive, and still ended up transmitting the virus to their partner. I'm sure it still possible, as they say it only cuts the %rate in half. But I'm curious if its actually happened to anyone on here, and what type of antiviral they were on

Can't remember if it was this board or another but a woman posted that she was on AVs and one partner was fine but she did still give to another one of her partners. I think it was recent on here, about the guy being separated and he was mad at her because he ended up giving it to his wife.

On current drugs the rates are <5% chance per year. This means that if 100 discordant couples have sex with some regularity, (a couple times a week on average I am guess), and abstain from sex during outbreaks, and 1 week after outbreaks heal, 5 of them will acquire GH,

The numbers change a bit with condoms, how long the partner has had the infection (the longer the better, usually), and the gender of the person with HSV - (it's easier for men to give it to women)

There are different circumstances based on a range of different things as to whether you transmit it or not.  Sometimes I think it's possibly luck of the draw because I have had it is for a lot longer than I thought and had unprotected sex and never passed it on

Any experience with laurintin/monolaurin and lysine? I am concerned re: lysine safety.

Flip of a coin really. No matter what preventive methods I'm afraid. I've heard wearing underwear and condoms can help a lot. Not really scientific but makes sense to me.

I’ve been on AVs + condoms and haven’t transmitted it.

without the condoms I know I’d still transmit it. I haven’t had any OBs, but I know the virus is still active. I can feel it

My doctor told me that with suppressive AVs it's a really low chance ...he said less than 1%. I don't know if it's really that low but he seems to think it was near impossible. I've spoke to only three doctors since my diagnosis, and most really don't care about transmission. Only one told me I should disclose! Idk the whole take on HSV in the medical community is so strange

OH and he also said that with constant use (over a year) alot of his patients say that they never have OBs again, or if they do - it's very rare. Obviously this isnt the most sound study or anything, but that's what he said

I also saw comments here about they infected partners while taking avs. There can still be chance because valtrex or other avs are not %100 effective. Some people still have obs while taking avs. I think something like face masks would be perfect to cover genital area, thats transparent and becomes a layer on skin and can cover all genital. Viblok is like this but its still not on market. Condom cant cover all genital area so there will be still chance to pass virus during shedding

I think it varies based on the person. If you're on AVs and you barely or never get OBs, then you're probably not shedding much and your chance of spreading is lower while you're on it.

Maybe i dont know exactly but i know there is always chance of transmitting it. Personally i can never take this risk because your lover can turn to your hater :) i would never want to spread such a virus

      @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.
