HSV- 1 Genital

Recommended Posts

Loveme1997

So I found out I have hsv 1 in my genital area and my boyfriend have hsv 1 in his mouth so my question is what are the chances of me giving him hvs 1 in his genital area???

 

Another thing may sound dumb I know you shouldn't have sex during an outbreak but just curious what would happen if I had sex while in my healing process of my very first outbreak??

It would be unlikely to transfer back to him genitally.  However during an outbreak the viral load being higher and if he had a cut may allow a bypass of his protection.  So I would refrain from sex during the active stage of an outbreak.  

What would happen to you would depend.  You may be more irritated and feel pain during sex while you are healing.  

Ultimately hopefully you will be like may ghsv1 and only have one or two more outbreaks and then no more.

      Ive have GHSV1 for two years and have not experienced an OB since my first initial one.. except for now i think. I was very stressed and worrisome, which caused me to get itchy down there, and now everytime i wipe i feel like there are blisters, but when i look there are none! im so confused and not sure if its just my mind trying to trick me, but i can sometimes feel them when i am sitting down, it feels like pins and needles.. has anyone else experienced this?? i dont know what to do! im trying to not think about it and 'think' my way out of this outbreak

      I was diagnosed with GHSV1 two years ago, i was in denial and still am. The doctor even said that what I had did not look like herpes. Dont know how or when i got it, and thats the worst part. I havent had an outbreak for two years, and i started feeling normal and honestly forgot i had it. I practiced safe sex but did not disclose my condition in fear of rejection. I have been taking Lysine and have been feeling great...until now. A former partner (who i never had sex with in any form), approached me saying he had gotten diagnosed HSV1, this brought back the stress, anxiety, fear, and depression I had gone through with my diagnosis. which then caused me to spiral into research and sleepless nights spent thinking how i will conquer this disease. After all the stress and research i am now feeling itchiness down there and pins and needles feelings, yet no blisters or rash. No clue if its my mind messing with me, or an actual outbreak (would be my first since my diagnosis). I guess i just need reassurance and consolation.. I feel lonely, no one knows i have this... The guy i am seeing now will not want me if i tell him... I keep convincing myself that if i take care of myself and continuously practice safe sex, i will never have to tell anyone until i meet my husband but i know that is not true... I have no where to go and dont know what to do.

      I was diagnosed almost a year ago and have always struggled to find an outlet or any support. I stumbled upon this site when researching a new rash. I’ve constantly struggled with dealing with my herpes, especially since I got it due to being raped.
      I hope to be able to talk to some people with similar experiences and problems. I have HSV1 in the genital region. Does anybody else deal with that as well?

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
