I was having protected sex with a woman over a two week period. About two days after our last interaction I noticed something wasn't quite right. I ended up with some blisters which were extremely itchy towards the tip of my penis. I went in for anonymous testing and the results came back positive for HSV2, negative for HSV1. I had some minor flu like symptoms and swollen lymph glands, the blisters never ruptured and aside from being extremely itchy were not bad. A first outbreak. My blood count for HSV2 was quite low, 1.89. I tested again a year later and was only a 1.62 Still positive is positive.
I haven't ever had another outbreak, it's been over two years now.
Yet I am still curious about who I contracted HSV2 from. I have learned condoms are less than perfect protection for men. I haven't ever directly asked my partner if she was the source. She was very insistent upon using condoms which didn't bother me. The research suggests I could have had HSV2 for decades without knowing. The research also suggests the partner I had protected sex with could have been the source. Symptoms occurring with days of sex. Even the positive antibodies in my blood so soon afterwards are possible (1-3 weeks). I have a very healthy immune system.
I guess I am looking for more direct answers and personal experience from real people. How soon after sex did symptoms occur for you? How soon did your blood show positive antibodies for HSV2? Is there anyone here who experienced a first outbreak years or decades after possibly acquiring HSV2? Thanks
I want to reserve this topic as a humorous/sarcastic corner to sort of see how many things users can find online that had a crazy amount of funding or used tax payer money, which could’ve been used instead for things like research, cures, awareness related to diseases or serious medical problems.
Hopefully it’ll be a way to just blow some steam at things we’re not very happy about or find funny. I’ll start:
This is just unneccessary and the money could easily have funded research for HSV or helped people that are homeless or even helped Texas get a better sex-ed program
