Asymptomatic for a long time?

Recommended Posts

Here’s my story:

I was in a long term relationship (5 years relationship) but my infidelity  was a sh*t! Alcohol ruined everything! I got drunk and i had a one night stand with a guy whom i’ve known for only 2 weeks during our seminar (didn’t know his past sex life, we never had a deeper conversation) I was worried about getting HIV ( i didn’t worried about getting HSV) glad to say hiv result was negative. What i wonder most is that, twas 2 years ago...does it mean i’ve been asymptomatic for the entire 2 years? and I had my outbreak just days ago. Is it possible?

Are you asking if you could have had it before hand and just have been asymptomatic? Or are you asking is it possible to be asymptomatic for the entire two years?

I've had conflicting advice on this. One doctor told me I could have had it years without knowing but the doctor who swabbed me said it was a new infection due to how bad my first outbreak was and then blood work showed me to be negative so I knew then that it was a new infection. Have you had sex with anyone else recently?

I was gonna say yeah. I think so. I had a mild first outbreak which all the doctors told me that it was just my lips being chapped which it could have been. But so far I haven’t had any outbreaks it’s been 7 months and 3 since I actually had my blood test done

I would say it is possible to be asymptomatic for 2 years because I have been for more than 2 years. I've only been with my husband for the last 10 years...had my first OB one month ago. It was mild...no crazy initial OB before then.

It was negative? You mean you had a new infection aside from hsv

Are you hsv1 positive? I noticed a days ago i had blisters on my genital area so i suspected it might be herpes and i went to my ob to confirm then she said it was really a herpes. She also said that maybe i got it from the time i cheated last two years ago and became dormant for years. So sad

So where did you get your herpes then?

Yes I am HSV 1 positive.  Confirmed through and Igg blood test. Where?  I have no idea because besides the lip thing I haven’t had any outbreak so it’s hard to tell. But yes it can lie doormat for years based on what I’ve read so it could have been from that or before hand. There’s really no way of telling u less u knew for sure that guy gave it to u

It was a new infection of hsv1. My swab showed positive but my bloods came back negative as I hadn't had the virus long enough to show in my blood. My outbreak was textbook from having sex too ie symptoms, blisters appearing etc so that's also why the second doctor said it was a new infection plus the severity of it and the negative blood test. I think if you have had it a while it's almost impossible to track who you got it off unless you know that they are carriers too.

No idea...could have been my current husband had it and did not know. Could have been from my first husband. This can lie dormant in your system for decades. Some people never know they even have it.

      Okay so I want some physical pains, emotional pains, psychological pains, etc to how this has affected you! I’m doing this so I can have some background on not just me but for EVERYONE who experiences chronic pains or mental pains or more when I go meet with the head GYN to talk about and I quote    “You are certainly welcome to schedule an appointment with one of the other GYN providers who are in clinic this month especially if you have questions or concerns about your own health. I believe Fadyia was trying to connect us as you raised concerns about areas affecting all students in which case I’d be happy to meet and discuss when I return. J “    but the only physical pain I’ve experienced was severe nerve pain and blisters but they’ve healed and never returned , and the only mental pain i experience is when knowing you’re the “only one who has it” but I want to hear from YOU guys so I can have some backbone To why this should be talked about more when she returns. I mean everyone says we should give back to the community. So type the problems/concerns below and I’ll check them and when she returns I’ll state them!

      I recently had to build up courage to disclose, but it was after I already had intimacy with him, I know you won't make the same mistake I did... but I think disclosing AFTER is much harder than BEFORE so let me tell you how I got myself to finally pick-up the phone and tell him... 1. I watched a lot of youtube videos about how it's the right thing to do and HAVE to do. 2.I googled about other people in my situation and how to disclose. 3.I texted him telling him that I have something I needed to tell him, then I called after he said it was good to call, and I just Nike! (Do it/Did it) The common advice I found on every google suggestion and youtube video is to "STAY CALM", he will feed off of your emotion so be calm, and be informative without being too informative/overwhelming him. I only disclosed today, but I do know that the conversation went well for what it was and for being over the phone... What happens next I don't know, I cried after I got off the phone because I felt so awful. And though I think he knew I felt guilty, ashamed and whole bunch of other things, I didn't let it take-over the discussion of what's important which is letting him know that HE will be okay, and that HSV2 is okay, common, and treatable although incurable, also the statistics of the likeliness to spread.  There has been MANY cases where one person DOESN'T spread it to their partner long as they both take precautions. I know I messed up, so I'm not the best person to get advice from, but I hope this helps at least a little bit.  If you need any youtube video references, let me know.
