I’m 23 years old. I wonder if there will be a functional cure by the time I’m 40.

I want to be able to have sex with who I want and who wants to with me. I’ve been thinking about the possibility of a functional cure occuring before I’m in my 40s. Functional meaning there would be 0% chance of me transmitting the virus to the person I’m having sex with.

Although most women already have the best possible form of functional cure in terms of an HSV-1 infection already. 

The (re)transmission probability is lower than what any vaccine could achieve.

This is not what you want to hear, but no you probably won't be cured by then. The good news is that you probably won't really care much about it by the time you hit 40. It's possible that Crispr might be ready by then, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So far everything fails, in the end, no matter how foolproof it appeared to be early on and no matter how many idiots screamed it would be the one. Buckle up for a long ride.

Como tú lo tienes y ella también y muchos de aquí lo tienen tenemos que ver normal el hsv, bonita forma de pensar 

¿Entonces el cáncer también se debe de ver normal ya que muchas personas cada día tienen cáncer? O en el cáncer no aplica porque si es mortal?

As you have it and she too and many of us here have it, we have to see normal the hsv, nice way of thinking

So cancer should also look normal since many people every day have cancer? Or does cancer not apply because it is deadly?

We can’t be sure about things that will happen in future. 20 years ago we couldn’t imagine a vaccine which reduce the shedding rate up to 50% but now we have Gen03. It’s not perfect or what we are dreaming but it’s a reality and it reduces the chance of transmitting this shit. Maybe after another 20 years we have a vaccine which is 100% effective and maybe not who knows? Overall I prefer to stay hopeful.

To be honest, technology pretty much sucked 20 years ago. Its still pretty damn bad compared to what it might be in 10 years. However, this is definitely the point where we are starting to see the start of some pretty crazy acceleration. People talk a lot about crispr but why would u even need that to cure viruses when nanobot technology gets here? 

Better microscope technology and biological AI and AI itteration are also things that will change a lot. 

A functional cure might not be on the market in 15 years but most likely it will be in clinical trials and on the way at least.

Also if u just have hsv1 and not even hsv2 u dont even have to care.

I think there's a good chance that some medicine or vaccine would reduce shedding by 95% and most symptoms as well, by 17 years.  

Maybe that could be pritelivir + valtrex, approved in 2 to 3 years.

And why is this? I have hsv1 and I would like a cure, I do care....

I don’t even care about having the virus anymore, life’s too short. Idk how some people on this website are on here literally everyday. I know plenty of women with the virus as well now after joining private Facebook groups.

How do you get in a private fb group?  And why wouldn’t you care if you have hsv1

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.

      It was properly typed. Definitely HSV-2. No, he doesn’t get oral cold sores. So should I expect this to be another OB coming? I’ve never had an outbreak in my life and have been with my husband for 8 years with no problem! So I hope this isn’t going to keep occurring

      Hey @ayekayelle I am afraid to say this is pretty typical of the first few months, a fairly high chance of rolling outbreaks. Maybe the suppressive therapy will be of assistance for a while at least. By the way just to add, was you culture properly typed? Or just assumed to be HSV-2 given location? Its 50/50 seemingly as to whether cultures are typed. Does your husband get oral cold sores?

      I just had my first OB during the first week of April, and was diagnosed with HSV2 on April 12th. I just finished my 10 day cycle of acyclovir yesterday. Today I've been feeling uncomfortable. No burning or pins and needles feelings, just more so uncomfortable and not right down there. Is it possible to be getting another OB this soon, or am I just being paranoid? I'm starting suppressive therapy as soon as I receive my medication. Blah...
