Newly diagnosed sex q!!

Recommended Posts

Anonqwerty

I have hsv 1 oral... I know I can give it to him either by head or kissing but I have 2 q:

Can I give to him genital to genital contact (again oshv1)?

can it go from me giving him ohsv1 to him possibly giving me ghsv1?

Basically, can the body attack elsewhere besides its initial landing point

There would be a reasonable chance that your partner has HSV-1 already, has he actually ever tested?

If he does not carry the virus, then it is possible for you to transmit from your mouth (only).

Your immune system is very strong against HSV and this means that an additional infection is an incredibly rare thing indeed.

He probably does, I'm not sure. He's just a guy I fuck tbh but he doesn't care about the OHSV1 because how common it is, even though I'm newly infected (my IGG test was a very high positive 35.30)..

he misses having sex with me, but I'm worried to give him something 

also, is my immune system strong towards it even if I'm newly infected? (A few months half a year)

It is super rare to contract HSV in another location once you have already had an established infection in another area.

In other words the fact you have had oral HSV for a year makes it very unlikely for you to be able to contract GHSV-1.

You cannot give him GHSV-1 by having genital to genital sex with him as you do not have GHSV-1. The only way he could get GHSV-1 from you is by oral sex

Your blood test indicates a much longer term infection I would suggest, probably from childhood. Hence your immune system is fine.

This partner's attitude is actually pretty reasonable. 70% or more of women he could come across have oral HSV-1, so what are his options? If it isn't you, it will be another woman with oral HSV-1.

I've just been blowing men off with oral HSV? Why hasn't anyone said I given them something?!

Because transmission absent sores happens 1 in 5,000 blowjobs! And that’s for the guys without HSV-1.

Last thing, so a high igg test means a long term infection? How so?

You cannot generate a high number as 35 say within about the first 6 weeks of infection. Hence if you do it means you were infected more than 6 weeks back. With HSV-1 this opens the possibility of a childhood infection.

Well that honestly makes me feel better. I was going through a very stressful period in my life so it makes sense for me to a have an OB now. But I'm sure I had a cold sore as a kid, but it's not one of those things you remember until you realize you have Herps, I guess haha

Can I have a high number of 35 for an infection 6 months old? A year?

Well 35 is not high, it is very normal for a carrier of HSV-1. What can be said quite definitively is that you could not feasibly produce such a reading within about 6 weeks of infection. This means you were infected anywhere from 6 weeks beforehand back to childhood! Many people are infected before living memory and although they have some bad outbreaks for the first few months after infection, quite a proportion then have no living memory of subsequent cold sores. 

The key point here is that a primary infection with HSV-1 is not a trifling affair, over 90% of people so infected have noticeable, distinctive symptoms. It isn't pragmatic to suspect a silent infection took place and a first outbreak occurring months or years afterwards. This does become more feasible for a subsequent infection of the other type.

So it can be from a 6 month ago infection?

Yes, 6 months, 12 months, 5 years, 20 years etc.

You'd most likely would have had a noticeable outbreak (at least sending you to the doctor wondering what was going on) at the time. Did this happen 6 months ago?

Either way what is more relevant is his herpes status, yours is certain.

I got what felt like a stomach bug in January. But it was flu season. But I did have a one night stand in December. 

 

This may may sound vulgar but his mouth was everywhere, so does that mean I could also have GHSV1? I only got an IGG test. I know for certain it's at least oral because I get very minor almost unnoticeable outbreaks on my lip (paper cut like marks, small bumps). 

 

But what if im asymptomatic with GHSV1

 

I probably didn't contract this infection as a child, I was very promiscuous when my mental health was at an all time low.

Adult infection with primary HSV-1 tends to be extremely painful and very, very obvious. Large sores covering large areas, both oral and genital in cases where people concurrently contracted. If you had contracted this during your period of promiscuity as you referred to it, you would of noticed it. The median time for a recent infection to start a primary OB is 2-10 days post exposure.

Many, many, many children contract HSV-1 from each other at very young ages. Slobbering on toys, sticking things in their mouths, ect. It's also common for HSV to get mixed up with an infection known as impetigo in small children as they present almost identically.

Thank you for educating me! I just mention my promiscuity because I was being unsafe. But I guess it makes sense as to why I'm having OBs now, considering I've been dealing with a lot of immune issues.

      Update: I plan on getting tested in mid November, so about a month from now, it’s been 6 months since lip breakout and after taking olive leaf extract recently, I think I finally have the anal itch under control, it’s virtually non existent so I’m hoping for improvement over the next month, I’ll keep y’all posted

      I think someone else posted about this. I read the same article, it's exciting news lets hope it succeeds.

      My testicles itch badly too , I usually take a cool bath with epsom salts to stop the itch . I have had the itching off and on for years. Your not alone.

      I have to agree. I'm actually...fine? I freaked out at my first OB last month, but then after reading all the information out there, and starting taking care of myself, I don't think about it most days. There is the occasional anxiety and I haven't worked up the courage to tell people except my bf, but I read a lot about people talking like its the end of the world (which makes me think "Should I be worrying more?"). Of course, everyone's feelings are valid, but, personally, I wish I had someone to talk to about this that isn't completely distraught.
