A few questions???

Recommended Posts

Deadhead

SO I was diagnosed with hsv1 by a blood test. Can they tell the type by a blood test? Are there different antibodies for each type? Also while I have your attention...So I have genital hsv1...Is it likely that I have it orally and don't know it? My ex got cold sores on her lips... her mother had them and gave them to my daughter. I kiss my daughter a lot. I have read that once you have it, it is more difficult to contract it again because you already have the antibodies to fight it off. Did I understand that article correctly? Should I warn my gf that I might have oral hsv too??? I know that is a lot. Any feedback would be helpful I'm sure.

      Here's the link again https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/30551986/ Bula, always include the http:// in URLs that you post so that we can just click on them instead of having to copy and past to the URL field.

      Any views on this update on the trivalent vaccine candidate? Appears to show some promise including some effect therapeutically though not sure how much. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/30551986

      I was exposed as condom broke and after feeling funny I got us tested and she sure had hsv2 antibodies was like 15.5. I never got flu like symptoms. Just this mild burning sensation

      Thanks and yes I've been careful with towels and I take precaution as if I do have it. The thing is I don't have half the symptoms and maybe hsv1 is helping
