Genital HSV1 is all stigma. Worth a read.

Recommended Posts


I’ve been reading a lot on this forum and have found there is a lot of GHSV1 infections and people absolutely freaking out.  This is why it’s not even a significant problem worth worrying about. 

3/4 of people at some point or 90% of the population has HSV1 orally, the strain that likes the mouth and asymptomatically sheds quite frequently, almost 9X fold the amount GHSV1 sheds. And everyone runs around kissing everyone and adding to the Herpes stigma calling their problem ‘just a fever blister’ and are running around poking fun and cracking jokes at someone with the same strain as them genitally.  Yet theoretically speaking having HSV1 orally is actually much worse than genetally.  Ideally speaking if you were to date someone with GHSV1 or oral HSV1, the chances of catching the disease from the orally infected individual would be 9X more likely. Yet those people running around orally not disclosing anything saying they’re ‘clean would be more significant than a Genital case. 

I have yet yet to see something on the internet that was proven where a GHSV1 to GHSV1 transmission occurred. It’s always oral to Genital. Life is too damn short, stop stressing out, keep your minds clear and I promise there’s much worse things you should be worrying about in the world. Go have a glass of wine or beer, breathe you’re going to be okay.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
