I got h at 48.  You would have faced other challenges.  This is just another one that you will get through. You or i or anyone is not dirty.  We have cold sores just on our bits instead.  It takes time is all and perspective

I am 54 and never thought I would be writing on here[lol]. Lots of emotions I know since this is very new to me also.

I used to really bad for people who got it younger than I did (at 25) because at least I got to have some "care free" sex, but honestly if I had to choose I'd take the last 7 years over the previous 7 any day.  I've also found that younger people react more negatively to h than people over 40, so you've got a wide net you can cast without too much worry. <3

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test.

      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
