Genital Hsv1

Recommended Posts

Braino

I see all the post about the need to disclose Genital HSV1 and stories of people disclosing to people that accept their partner having Genital HSV1.  I read the stories of people saying “your sex life is not over.” So I’m sure people on this site with Genital HSV1 have been having sex and/or oral sex. But when the question is asked, does anyone have success stories of not passing the virus to their partner(s) or have you accidentally passed the virus to anyone, seems to be very few responses.  We’ve all read the stats on transmission, I wanted to hear real life stories.

I'm wondering the same

I was diagnosed last October by swab. I 100% got it from receiving oral sex. From October to now I’ve received hella unprotected oral sex with multiple partner multiple times and sex once with a condom. To my knowledge I never passed this virus on. What about you? How long have you had Genital HSV1? Have you had sex or received oral sex after your diagnosis?

I tested blood positive for hsv1. So I don’t have definite confirmation that I have it genitally.  However since July 2017 (after receiving oral from a new partner) I started having burning sensation in my thighs along with some itchy sensation in my penis and testicle area.  

This has gone on basically constantly since then.  

I have since had unprotected penis in vagina sex (not the same person that gave me oral) about twice a week since August 2017 with the same person and have not spread it (to my knowledge- she shows no symptoms).

I have been diagnosed with genital HSV1 I got from oral sex and it was a HORRIBLE initial break out. Since then I haven’t had much if any symptoms. I have had sex multiple times since then protected but unprotected oral and no passage of the virus I know of. I wonder if having genital HSV1 would be more difficult to pass or if it ever would pass due to being in the downstairs in its “unnatural invironment”. Wonder if it’s safe unprotected as I have a girlfriend now and would like to stop using protection. I’ve been taking these supplements said to keep it from coming back and eventually “rids the body of the virus” company name is Synergy pharmaceuticals worth looking them up, not sure if it actually works but I have good results so far been on it for about 2 months now.

I did not know I have HSV1 so I was doing sex normal. Later when my doctor see me he said it is HSV1 and it is positive in blood test. Last time 6 months ago I did sex with my partner with outbreaks but until now she is fine.

It is likely you have oral HSV-1. You avoid brining into contact your mouth sores with your partner.

Your genitals are not contagious in this setting.

Then you should get a swab to establish what’s going on when you have an outbreak.

Did you know if this was low positive or a high positive? Did you get a western blot? Did you have any others in the past?

how long it took for you to convert?

It was a lower positive but hsv1 is more likely to be false negative than false positive.  No blot.  I took the test at approx 9 or 10 weeks post exposure.

You should check again for a clarification. Because sometimes when u test low positive within 16 weeks it could be you r developing antibodies slowly and seroconverting. Good luck and keep us posted

What would testing again show? 

If I am low positive and then test high positive - I am still positive so I don't see the value.

What happens is sometimes when u get low positives u tend to be in the false positive zone so hence asked to verify that’s all. Cheers bro.

      Hey Guys, I prepared this draft message to the admin at the "+Support Groups" HSV community.  Pls let me know what you think if you have any comments or suggestions before I send it. ________________________________________________ Hello, Thank you for your message.   Perhaps I could run this by you here to get your view first.   In a nut shell, we are part of an HSV community which is helping to support HSV cure research.  I know "cure" is a bit of a dirty word in the HSV community, but please kindly hear me out and, if you don't mind, please check out some of the information I share. The Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center has been making some serious progress towards an HSV cure, even though commercialization is still tentative and some years away.  They are using a technique called gene editing, and with it, they have been able to target the latent form of HSV and destroy it by disrupting its DNA.  They've been able to remove over 50-90% of latent HSV when tested in mice, in effect partially curing mice from HSV. A lot of people are excited about this research.  It is partially funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), but it is also being supported through private donations from our community. Our donations have enabled their team to progress to testing in guinea pigs before the funding for that was available from the NIH.  I'd like to ask you and the powers that be here, whether it might be ok to post about their research and to also post the link to the donation drive.  Our own admins at Honeycomb.click, have let us post about it and even pinned our main post on this, which has helped us to get many people to contribute to supporting this.  Over 200 members have donated and this has raised $38,000 for this research this year. These funds are being put to good use, as explained in the last video presentation from FHC, where Dr. Jerome who heads up this research has noted that these funds have enabled them to proceed to guinea pig testing. I'd like to share some info links with you. First is a 2016 peer reviewed scientific research paper where they showed they could edit and deactivate 2-4% of latent HSV in mice. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5026126/ Next is an article from Mens Health Magazine about the progress of this research from earlier this year, noting that removal of latent HSV has reached up to 90% in mice. https://www.menshealth.com/health/a26306319/herpes-cure-gene-editing/ That article obviously isn't a scientific paper, but it does help to explain what they are doing in layman's terms. Here is The latest from a series of video presentations from the Fred Hutch team.  A little past the 46 minute mark Dr. Jerome gives an acknowledgment to the funds that we have raised and explains how the funding is being put to use.   Finally, a link to the NIH website which shows the grant that this research has received from the NIH last year (this grant will be active through 2023). https://report.nih.gov/categorical_spending_project_listing.aspx?FY=2018&ARRA=N&DCat=Sexually+Transmitted+Infections (Note there are 4 pages there, and the grant for Keith Jerome is on one of the pages only ("Endonuclease-mediated disruption of latent HSV as curative therapy - $450,000 in 2018). Finally, the link to the FHC donations page for supporting this HSV cure research is here:  http://engage.fredhutch.org/site/TR?px=1709211&fr_id=1574&pg=personal After looking at these infos, please kindly consider whether we would be allowed to post about the research and about the donation drive.  We think it is important to get everyone on board, even if it's just a small donation of $10 to $15.  This is now winding through animal studies with the aim of being tested in human clinical trials.  This is a legitimate effort and we think it's an effort that is worth supporting by our community of HSV positives and related stakeholders.  I know you have posted a disclaimer about not posting about "cures", but we presume that to mean fake or scam cures ("the great Dr. Okoloko's medicinal herbal tincture etc.").  This is real and legitimate research and it's exciting. Please kindly consider if you would allow us to share this with your community.  If so, we'd be very happy to share with you first the draft post and take any comments or feedback from you before posting it.   Thank you for your consideration.

      Imagine we're both HSV2 positive and we have sex. A few days later I have a huge outbreak. Is it randomness or could having sex with another infected person trigger an outbreak ?

      400mg Pritelivir has been shown to be worse than a smaller dose daily (and that is what pharmacodynamics would predict as well). You'd expect the same with Amenamevir, though i'm not entirely sure about its half-life right now. TL;DR A weekly dose is for convenience only, i'd always prefer a more effective daily or bi-weekly dose.

      Yup.. Absolutely agreed! 👍 wilson has been helped many of us!
