Recommended Posts

How many of you think you would of caught herpes while using a condom? Just curious to see how frequent it is for someone to catch herpes when using a condom.

I slept with the same woman for two years, with and without condoms, and she doesn't have herpes.

Did you have herpes before you met her? Were you taking antivirals?

Probably neither! Infection hasn’t been confirmed.

Fear is the big winner!

I had herpes for a year before we met. I took antivirals for about half the relationship, then stopped.

      That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here. I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.

      I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise. This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers. Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm. What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

      Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this? The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye. I am not making this stuff up.

      Do you have any photos? Sounds similar to me.

      Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation. Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection. It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious. Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.
