Transmission Question

Recommended Posts

leadjad123

Hi!

I have genital herpes (HSV1), and so far my outbreaks have only been in the anal region, right around the anus. I have never gotten any lesions or strange sensations on my penis. My question is, despite never having lesions on my penis, is it possible to still spread the herpes via my penis? Or can the virus only be spread through my anal region since that is the location where the lesions present themselves?
 

I just received this diagnosis am not sure exactly what to disclose to future partners. If the only chance of spreading the virus is from skin-skin contact with my anus, do I still need to tell partners if we engage in sexual activities that dont involve my anal region? I have asked this question to several physicians and have got conflicting answers. 

 

Thank you so much!

Yes you can technically shed from anywhere in the boxer short region.

There are 5 sacral nerve ganglions and it is not clear which of these might or might not Harbour the virus. It is possible for example that your herpes is just in your inner anal area, but you won’t know.

I have the same issue and I have asked a specialist about this. Even if you only get ob’s in one zone, your entire genital region is infected front to back as the entire area shares the same nerves.

@AnonFI have been wondering why I have recently had an OB in a slightly different area than normal, is this why? Can I have an OB any where in my genital region? I was afraid it may be spreading.

just follow careful hygiene. my thoughts are a heated towel rail that completely drys out your towel and care when drying.

not sure. id say not likely...althou i have read some odd things at times...just follow careful hygiene....if you are worried let that area air dry.

just dont TOUCH sores....have a soapy barrier on your hands when washing and take care if you are having an outbreak not to touch them.

if you suspect you have spread the infect contain the area Quickly and see a doctor.

Please without scaring let people know ...this is a real issue in this forum.

we havent heard back from the guy who sounded like he had spread the infection down his leg with a towel. he was undiagnosed...suspected shedding in the groin. the spread sounded like he had rubbed the towel on his groin and then leg.

so if something involves rubbing and friction in quick succession from the infected area this can be a real issue. the honeycomb fact sheet covers most of it...but i seriously disagree w/ them on the towels.

it happens to people with not so great health...look after your health very carefully.

its really important to warn WITHOUT SCARING...new members of the risks...esp people going throu diagnosis as they are not medicated.

it seems my troll has gone away...if he comes back ignore him he ruins his own credibility by his comments... as even the HC website agrees with most of what i said.

i regular complain to admin. i have just found a case of bad advise in regards to this forum. if it turns out to be correct i am hoping there will be a court order issued to this forum to inform each new member of the risks. they cannot be sued due to their disclaimer.

(((i am sorry for your delusional disorder)

yeah i get over emotional and experience hightened emotions...that is all...i am not delusional...

everyone who has been here a while knows WisolnAus...other than your few followers who are seriously misinformed regarding this condition and i hold them directly responsible if this girl has not had her hand infection attended to or it has spread to other locations or another family member.

you have zero creditability here and you should stop embarrassing yourself. honestly you are so retarded you are not even worth typing to.

      Omg you crack me up. Being reckless is sleeping with a condom and not having any other sexy foreplay before just in case? This was not a random dude I just met at the bar that night, he had been talking to me for 3 months before.  The lawyer was reckless for not disclosing or taking antivirals or whatever. I trusted him for being so nice to me.

      How could I have gotten hsv1 on my genitals as a child??? I’ve never had a coldsore either in my life. My body changed after I had sex with that idiot, which sucked  and it’s not pointless to know who did this to you when in some states it’s considered a crime to transmit an std to another person.

      Thank.you @Distraught1

      its very very very hard to know who gave it to you..my drs told me is pointless. and to come back positive for hsv1 on blood test, its alsaw kind of dumb because most people get it as children, and they dont have any outbreak..so could be the lawyer..or not...

      I am in a similar situation. I experience the dizziness every day. I feel fatigued most of my day. I get tiny cuts in the genital area and lips. I get burning/tiny red dots in the genital area. I get tingling sensations in different areas. Valocyclavir did not work for me. I have a tiny, white bump on my lip that crusted over. All tests (no Western Blot) have been negative. Blood work is negative. This all started after I had unprotected sex.   What are your oral outbreaks like?
