After being exposed to hsv2 I've tested negative at 2 months. I know it can take longer and I'll retest at 3 n 4 months to see if there would be anything detected. Now I've had some weird symptoms but I'm not sure if it was my anxiety or what. Nothing hardly lasted but for that day. Nothing ever blistered or oozed and there's no visible signs but I've had hsv1 with high antibodies for a long long time and I know that can help from having severe symptoms and out breaks.

Has anyone with hsv1 and recently got hsv2 and had a complete outbreak with sores right away? I'm wondering about that. I've had a lil burning on my median raphe and it was like a month later. It's never happened before. Irritated at times to a burning sensation. What's the chances. It doesn't hurt to urinate or nothing just getting slight discomfort. Has anyone ever had something similar. If it wasn't for having hsv1 I'd of had an outbreaks with usual symptoms. Or does that even matter and u can still get sores and blisters. I'm thinking that people in my situation would, knowing they've for sure been exposed to it. Also not having the antibodies. Just curious

I have heard that having two strains can complicate things w/ testing. I do know in rare circumstances an initial infection can spread elsewhere.

I do know generally having HSV1 can be protective...i think. 

not sure if that is helpful.

      Sorry @Voyager2 it's such a garbage thing and you don't deserve that sort of treatment. I am hoping something comes out of the woodwork in the near future. I want that party in time square and I am sure @Sillybrain2 would be there too, We'd probably party all year, we've been waiting too long for this.

      There’s a lot of what looks like bro science here, can you point to any studies or views by experts that support this? Lets get a few facts on the table and see where that might lead us. Does HSV 1/2 generally cause nerve damage? Experts say no. Not even the likes of Terri Warren, Anna Wald and William Halford have isentifed this. Does an infection cause nerve and other complications at the time of primary or initial infection with HSV-2. Experts say yes. It is well researched. Plenty of examples explained as Elsberg syndrome for example point to particular lesions on the spinal column that cause issues. In nearly all cases healing occurs within a few months. Note that this is not to be confused with CMV/VZV caused Elsberg which is generally more serious and sometimes permanent. All herpes related issues will respond well to acyclovir. There are also related issues with the immune system that can be triggered by viral infections, most of which are also self limiting.

      Keep asking away @thebrightsidegirl You’ll get some good answers from experienced folk here, mostly! For a person with genital HSV-1, yes they can get genital HSV-2 although the chances appear to be somewhat reduced. No one knows by how much. People with both types identified in the one location are very rare indeed, although there’d be under-reporting. For your boyfriend, it sounds like some testing would be a good idea. Can he get a swab if the sores?

      Do you? I think people can read your story and decide for themselves, please pay that respect to people to understand your full story, don't our readers deserve that?   That's mice!??! On the basis of mice you pretend that what I write is wrong? I am relaying research into humans that is far more progressed than these papers on mice. Publish one paper that shows HSV-2 has caused nerve damage (I mean damage) to genital nerves. And given that there are 4 billion people with HSV-1, show us one documented case of nerve damage conclusively from HSV-1? The problem with mice models is that their immune system does not produce human immune response interferons and natural killer cells, not to mention the enhancements to neural density that accompanies the immune response.
