Hey just curious does anyone have a full subscription to newscientists.com. They have an article that I would like to read, but I really dont want to pay for a full subscription if someone else on here could kindly share it. Thanks if you will.

HEy - can't really share at the moment but it talks about Friedman trivalent vaccine (trials due to start in 18months) although not much more info than you can find elsewhere. Emphasises that this vaccine if eventually successful would be for prevention rather than treatment.

Also mentioned live attenuated vaccine candidate from Konstantin Kousoulas at Louisiana State Uni, which seemed to be effective as prophylactic and boosted the immune system as a therapeutic in guinea pigs; also stimulated the immune system in macaques (though no figures given as to what that meant in terms of reactivation etc). Also not clear exactly when that will start. Some rays of hope but the headline was misleading saying it 'wipes out the virus'. 

Kousoulas says it could be available in 5 years 'if it passes trials'. Seems a bit too optimistic to me given past experience. Not sure if that 5 years starts when the trial starts (whenever that is) or after a specific phase has ended

Thank you, please share link when you can : ).  I do recall Louisiana doing swab testing!  I tried to sign up but didn't get a reply. Well someone working on it is always good news! Especially new developments! Yes pretty misleading with that headline. My anxiety level went through the roof when I couldn't open it and read it all!

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
