I have hsv 1 and iv only had 2 OB. But i wonder that i just finished my medication and i worried that my sore arent gone. The doctor didn't tell me anything really. Will they go away on there own? Do i need to get more? Do i have to take the medication all the time. Im juat so lost everything i read online is about hsv2. Can i have sex? I have so many questions i dont even know where to start really

Hey and welcome to the website.

Where are these sores? 

Yes these sores will heal and go away like any other type of sore. A recurrent herpes lesion will usually form, ulcerate and heal in about 7-10 days.

When you feel the sores have fully healed, then yes you can have sex. If your partner already has HSV-1 then there is negligible risk to them during sex with no active lesions.

The thing to remember that having genital HSV 1 you are less likely to have outbreaks and probably don't need medication but the same applies you need to maintain a healthy immune system so that you do avoid getting outbreaks.

Iv been with my partner for 7 years i found out 4 years ago. I have genital sores. Id say it been about 6 day i feel a lot better but i think i still have a tingle sensation. I over think thing a lot. Hes never been tested so im not sure if he has it. I told him should but he would rather not know i guess. We don't use protection at all. I would guess he has it but I'm not sure.

There is a good chance he does have especially with no protection even though I got it with protection . I can understand him not wanting to get tested , because that make it real and this way he can always say he does not have anything. My doctor told me not to get tested ,but I did knowing I did not have it and BAM ,I did,so if I had to do it again I don't know if I would and many in the medical profession say if you don't have symptoms do not get tested like my Doc.  .  He could be asymptomatic like I am   so he will never know if he has it,if you stay together fine,but if not he should get tested for others he might date.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
