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

      My Neurologist prescribed me Escitalopram for the nerve pain. Really haven’t started taking it, I was hoping the nerve pain just stops. Some way some how he told me that I will never have an outbreak and I haven’t..Weird?  Anyway I’m married, for 15years. When I discovered I had HSV my wife got tested as we’ll found out she had it since college!! Didn’t know that the fever blisters she got in college was HSV...I trust that this is how I got it. But wouldn’t you know she has no symptoms at all other than she knows she has it. There maybe something to this that there is something else wrong here besides HSV.

      It’s not our heads that cause the sores I think this wound be very stupid for doctors to say as you can clearly see a sore.. however I do think if you are focused on a sensation constantly you will zone in on this feeling and always notice it I suffer from anxiety anyway in general so I do think some of my sensations maybe anxiety related.. but no or course cuts/ blisters  cannot be

      I've noticed a trend of people sharing stories about doctors telling them the tingling sensation is all in their head or caused by the patient themselves. My doctors did the same thing. I explained that I am not making myself confused and dizzy nor am I causing my skin to cut itself open on my penis and lips.
