Is it possible to have HSV2 in two places?

Recommended Posts

Antoinette63

I’m a woman with HSV-2 in my vaginal area. I’ve never had symptoms orally & was diagnosed from swabs from my vaginal area.

i gave the woman I’ve been dating for the past 3 weeks oral sex a few days ago, and had “the talk” with her after. She was ok and said we could figure out how to protect her from getting it. Now she’s  having cold symptoms that are getting progressively worse, similar to what I had when I had my first outbreak. I’m very afraid now that I may have HSV2 orally & I just didn’t know I had it & gave it to her. 

What should I do?? She’s  going to feel like I lied to them. 😩

Hey @Antoinette63 if you have oral herpes, then it’s much more likely to  be a HSV-1 infection. 

Has she had a swab of the lesions?

@WilsoInAus No hasn’t , but she has  body aches & cold she can’t get rid of since we were intimate. I’ve tested negative for HSV-1, so it would be weird for her to start feeling sick just a day or two after we were intimate. I feel like the common factor is me.

Hey @Antoinette63 if you do not have HSV-1 then it is very unlikely you have transmitted herpes.

Remeber that 99% of the time cold/flu is cold/flu. I suspect this is heightened alert and concern following your disclosure.

I feel sure she is quite free of HSV-2 as a result of the episode.

      @Ole that is not so good and makes it imperative to identify what is going on. Hopefully you can obtain the type specific test. Keep an open mind for other possible causes too.

      I would have to disagree with you on this. I have HSV2 on my mouth and I get outbreaks often. The person who gave it to me also had oral HSV2 and would have outbreaks every couple weeks. Also this Squarex newspost cites the prevalence of oral HSV2. They did not cite any primary literature but it sounds about right.  https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/squarex-announces-positive-results-from-completed-phase-2-study-of-sqx770-in-the-prevention-of-recurrent-herpes-labialis-300896065.html "Herpes labialis is a common condition characterized by blisters or erosions on the lips and skin around the mouth and nose. Most cases are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), but 10-15% of cases are caused by HSV-2 with this percentage reportedly increasing. "

      Hey @Ole the combined test is not so good when positive as you don’t know type or whether you have both. However negative is negative for both types with high credibility. The visual diagnosis looks like it may well have been wrong.
