Hey @Frankman60

Similar to your other post, the most likely explanation is that you have HSV-1 and neither of your two recent partners do. Now there is a chance that an oral HSV-1 infection from childhood is missed by their tests, but this adds nothing or alters the thinking expressed here.

A primary infection with HSV-1 is not trifling matter. There are virtually always lesions and probably some other symptoms as well as the site where the infection occurred. Many people with oral HSV-1 do not experience outbreaks beyond a few months of infection. This hence means that there a lot of people who have HSV-1 from childhood and do not know it owing to no living memory surrounding their infection and subsequent months.

This all means that a healthy positive for HSV-1 antibodies and zero recollection of an outbreak of lesions anywhere on the body virtually assures that a childhood oral infection is present.

      I'm not that well versed in HPV but HPV eventually is cleared by the body on its own.  A vaccine does exist which helps immunize against certain strains of HPV (not all of them), but will not treat HPV for those who already have it.  Everyone, male and female, who is eligible should get the Gardasil vaccine. If a new vaccine exists to treat HPV that's great, but I'm doubtful based on a quick Google search.

      I am new to all of this. My girlfriend has been told by a docter she has Human Papillomavirus (HP) and that in Mexico they have a cure they just develop, I guess a month or so ago Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine , have anyone heard of this. It is a lot on the internet about it. But I don't know how much I trust it.. Thank you AMM
