30 weeks from possible exposure

Recommended Posts

Chris Taylor

I stopped testing for hsv1 since my exposure for that was protected and I believe hsv 1 genital to genital is harder to transmit female to male,  even more if protection was used. Plus I tested negative for hsv1 5 times in these last 6 months.

I recently tested again for hsv 2, this is now 30 weeks from possible exposure. It was negative again with an index of 0.06.

If you see my previous post's,  you can see that my highest hsv2 was 0.20 for 3 straight months and last two were 0.05 and now it's 0.05.

I went back and looked at my blood work from August,  which was done 2 months after possible exposure. My WBC was 12.6 which was higher than the norm. Last week I tested again and I was at 8.6. Does anyone know anything about WBC and if it's a viral infection that could make it rise? And if so could it possibly mean my count is back to normal which indicates that my immune system is balanced which now has to show antibodies ? but of course only if I'm actually positive for either hsv.

I'm still having nagging pain around my boxer short area without the blisters. Nagging pain behind upper thighs when I sit. Kinda feels like someone twisted my skin and or is stretching it. Also my waist is sensitive when i wear tighter pants,  leaves like a rash that goes away once my pants are off. I also had a couple of anal fissures (twice) that went away the same day or the following. My lower back hurts now more than it used to. And my folliculitis on my thighs hasn't gone away, it's just there dry , and it's been like that for 5 months. Ive also noticed my wounds don't heal fast enough, either if it's a scratch or cut that o got from work. 

I just find it all too weird and to much coincidence that this happened after my protected exposure. I also find it weird that many say folliculitis and forcyde spots are non std related , but I've never had them in my life till my exposue.

Have you had any hot feeling on your forehead or face without it being a fever? This folliculitis crap is what I don’t get either. Most people say they haven’t had folliculitis since their exposure, but yet I had some on my thigh initially, which I’ve never had before and went away within a day. Now I’ve started to have it on my neck, chest, back, and arms (goes away in a day) and I just don’t understand why if I have hardly had them before except when being very physically active. My WBC and RBC and platelet count have been fine, though, but my T bilirubin has been elevated, but that’s apparently been like that for years. My Lymphocyte % is sometimes normal and then sometimes elevated or low. I just don’t understand.

No hot feeling on face or forehead.

Its weird that many ppl confused folliculitis with hsv,  why? Because before their exposure they didn't have it, once they got it they think it's hsv, but it's not. But if it's not then why does it come out after a risky sexual encounter?

I bet you've read on many different forums about ppl complaining about similar issues and always testing negative for all std. They continue living their life and never infecting their partner. Ive read a lot of these and I'm weirded out as well and now understand why many ppl also say the same thing,  if not hsv which is the hardest to detect then what else can it be.

Yours was protected, though, if I remember correctly so not really risky. I think it comes down to maybe subconscious chronic stress, which might be leading to our internal balance being out of whack and thus letting normal gut flora to being suppressed and stuff like yeast and harmful bacteria to take over. I might be wrong, but just a guess.

Yes protected , but many recent studies that I've read here say that condoms only protect about 35 percent. This means 65 percent of a chance that skin to skin contact was made which could cause the transmission. Others state is lower and it higher, but who really knows to be honest. 

One the reasons why I didn't go get tested for hsv 1 as I was doing before is because that one was protected and no scrotum liking or spitting was done , so I think I'm fine there as my results have been negative for that as well.

The mind does play with you , but when you have the physical pain, the folliculitis , forcyde spots, burning bone back pain and skin pain all in the boxer short area for 5 months  and other stuff it's hard to say it's just in my head.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, mine was more risky than yours and I don't have the fordyce spots or burning or skin pain. Just the face and forehead heat thing and appetite and penis irritation. I know this probably won't help after so many people saying you don't have HSV, but you probably don't have HSV. You might want to look into alternative medicine and see if someone can help you with your issues since allopathic doctors are refusing to acknowledge that your issues are real.

I am not too sure, since I was initially diagnosed in August and still not sure about my status, I haven't had an OB since the first one, which I'm not sure was an actual OB or not. It was hard for me to endure hot weather that was in the 80s when I was diagnosed, though, and started sweating like crazy and hard for me to breathe when being outside, which never happens to me because I've lived in hot weather for most of my life and used to it.

From what I've read heat can be a trigger for outbreaks in some people, while for others its something that's diet related. If you have not gotten another OB since your initial one, then that's a good sign. I hope it stays that way and that's also good for your husband. It suggests he has a good immune system.

I don't think I'm taking another IGG again because it was hard enough to get another one after requesting numerous times at the hospital and finally getting the one in November after the initial one at a different clinic in August. I am planning on getting a Western Blot done soon either this or next month.

I agree, women do tend to have it worse majority of the time. I have completely different symptoms than almost anyone I've talked or read about on here. You can read about my issues in my bio in my profile.

      That may be possible because people are allergic to the parabens and I forget what the other substance was but any glycerin in cheap lube is a no-no. I can get you several names if you wish.

      remember that the hsv is a virus in such a way that a virus that lives in our neurons and evades the immune system is not good for the human body and less for the neurons or the brain, what the hsv has is that it does not let die the neuronal cell but if the other epithelial cells where it multiplies and explodes

      this is the article I leave the link and what I read are seeing how crispr is safer and avoid mutations says that companies that work with crispr should be more cautious https://www.nature.com/articles/nbt.4192 ___________________ este es el artículo te dejo el link y a lo que leí están viendo la manera de que crispr sea más seguro y evitar las mutaciones dice que las compañías que trabajan con crispr deben de ser más cautelosas

      No se porque la palabra se desmorona te impacto tanto si lo publique fue porque meses atrás salieron 2 publicaciones sobre crispr que generaban mutaciones inesperadas y las 3 principales compañías Dueñas de las patentes sus acciones cayeron pero se volvieron a recuperar también salió otra publicación donde se mencionaba que podríamos tener anticuerpos contra crispr y las acciones volvieron a caer, ahora sale este nuevo artículo y las acciones si revisas volvieron a caer  Yo no soy científico creo que la mayoría de esta comunidad tampoco lo es y no sabemos hasta que grado de éxito puede tener crispr tanto puede tener éxito para unas enfermedades y en otras puede ser algo difícil  Mi publicación fue para informar y saber sus opiniones no para que lo tomarán personal aveces se ven este tipo de publicaciones sobre crispr y alguien quiere saber que piensan que puede suceder para tener esa confianza intacta y no llegar a la desesperanza y para terminar la última oración que aparece abajo yo no la escribí es de un artículo sobre crispr y por eso coloque el enlace  Artículo ______________________ @Cas9  I do not know why the word falls apart will impact you so much if you publish it was because months ago there were 2 publications about crispr that generated unexpected mutations and the 3 main companies owners of the patents, their actions fell but they recovered again, another publication appeared mentioning that we could have antibodies against crispr and the actions fell again, now this new article comes out and the actions if you review fell again I am not a scientist I think that most of this community is not and we do not know until how much success Crisp can have so much can be successful for some diseases and in others it can be difficult My publication was to inform and know their opinions not so that they will take personal sometimes see these types of publications about crispr and someone wants to know what they think can happen to have that confidence intact and not to reach despair and to finish the last sentence that appears below I did not write it is from an article on crispr and that's why I put the link Article Again, once again, the remedy is worse than the disease. The CRISPR hooligans will deny it, and will try to continue forward with clinical trials
