Finally got my official diagnosis.

Recommended Posts


Well, a month after my first sore appeared and I officially have a diagnosis. 

IgG test results:

HSV type 1 negative

HSV type 2 positive with 10.2

So it cant have been my new boyfriend, I've only been dating him since the end of September. Had my blood drawn yesterday, a month after my first suspected outbreak. 

The doctor confirmed my last negative blood test was in 2013. I know there is no way to know how long I've had it, aside from at least 4-6 months. With a 10.2, I would think it's been even longer than that. But that could just be me reaching. 

Theres only 3 possible sources since 2013. I could have spread it without knowing too.  :(

Sorry to hear. But try not. E hard on yourself as it sounds like if u had known u would have been responsible. I worry about that also but if u cld not test for it. It is not your fault

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
