Could BV be a misdiagnosis for my hsv2?

Recommended Posts

Hello. So in July 2017, I tested positive for hsv1 & hsv2. Since then, I’ve gotten cold sores inside my mouth but not sure I can confirm ever experiencing a genital OB. However, since my herpes diagnosis, I’ve also gotten bacterial vaginosis, two times. Is it possible that the BV is actually genital hsv2

i’m not sure it is likely that bv can be misdiagnosed as hsv 1&2, as bc is diagnosed by a swab, while hsv 1&2 are diagnosed through a blood test if no sore or lesion is present

Understood. I suppose I am trying to figure out if/when my hsv2 will flare. The BV diagnosis was something I was, in some ways, hoping would teach me more about my body and hsv2.

I'd go back to the test that you had. Why did you test? What tests did you have? Do you have the specific results?

      Morality aside, it could be that your "disclosure" talk is not as reassuring as it could be. With awareness of diagnosis, suppressive meds, and condoms every time, the risk of male-to-female transmission is very low. How low? If you and a female partner were having sex twice a week, it would be a 1-in-600 year event. Assuming precautions are taken, your female partner would be likely to die of old age without ever getting HSV, even of you had sex with her multiple times every day without a single day off for the rest of your life.

      For those of you with GHSV 1 or 2 how did you know you were having a second outbreak? I was diagnosed with GHSV-1 a month ago and have had no symptoms till now. For the past two days I've been super itchy but there are no bumps/ulcers like last time. I read somewhere that some people experience periodic itchiness and no other symptoms so I'm wondering, is this super common and is what is happening to me? Or do I need to prepare myself that this is most likely a second outbreak in it's initial stages?

      We havent cured things not because we can't its because profits are a bigger priority. Trust me when I say I know it sounds like conspiracy talk but look at where and what they throw money at.... sickness is lucrative. So is death (War) The military budget is criminal to say the least, as is Nasa's budget That's just simple math, then look at all the obscene hurdles set in place to help deter anyone from going the distance. They only cry ethics when it comes to anything that could potentially benefit the greater good.

      I think it is very important for you to find out whether you carry HSV-1 or not. If you do, then any concerns you may have about HSV-1 are negligible. Many people carry an oral HSV-1, like your partner. This will be the only region of her body infected, that is the mouth in a practical sense. No contact with the mouth means no chance of infection for you. Hence there are zero issues with vaginal sex and you giving her oral. Kissing and you receiving oral sex are the feasible transmission possibilities. Perhaps the second is of minor concern, but your choice. If you decide you're never going to kiss a girl because she has HSV-1 orally then that will be your loss. Most girls have HSV-1 and all the cute ones!
