Hsv2 oral sex transmission?


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to find an answer to this for awhile.

I contracted hsv2 orally from going down on a girl a month ago and she gave me oral and transmitted me herpes in my penis.

I'm not going to be intimate with anyone until I start taking valtrex daily indefinitely.......I want to know, if I have oral intercourse with another girl and I'm taking preventative meds and not having a outbreak, can I eat her out and she give me oral without a condom and even make out with her and not transmit hsv2 to her??

I hear that daily valtrex drops the transmition rate to another person by 77 percent I read.

It's wierd and not fun at all to get head with a condom on, and I can't tell my lady friend that I have herpes or she won't touch me ever again and might tell other people....I always wear a condom for vaginal intercourse anyway, even before got sick with Hsv2

Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for the help!

@Dq1391 I think you are getting well ahead of yourself.

It does not seem at all likely you contracted herpes from the episodes you describe. This is independent of your herpes status.

I suggest you calm down and at 12 weeks have the appropriate tests.

@WilsoInAus im just asking this question for future reference when i see my friend with benfits. I dont want to get her sick but i also dont want to push her away.

But if I didn't catch herpes (which I hope your right) how do you explain the burning of my penis and feet, and the small lesions that are/where on my penis. And the heroes in my mouth and throat? Not to mention the swollen glands and flue symptoms?...

Which tests do you recommend I get?..I know you said the swab test is best right?

@Dq1391 I am saying there is good reason to believe you were not infected with herpes. If you feel unable to reach a conclusion (more than fair) based on your understanding then you need to pursue a proper diagnosis. If that means little miss FWB is off the table for a few months, then that's what it means.

General burning is not an indication of herpes. Small lesions if they ulcerated are an indication that herpes should be eliminated as a possible cause. Throat? Herpes will not go to your throat except in extreme circumstances so more likely something else is at play.

Absolutely a swab of lesions is the best test and one that clinics and ERs might provide free.

In your honest opinion (because you seem very knowledgeable) whatelse do you think this could possibly be if not a bad case of Hsv2?...I will try and get tested asap tho.

It sounds like a yeast infection to me and you got the flu. It may be something like molluscum though if they are more like fluid blisters.

I didn't see fluid blisters. I just saw raised pulsating painfull bumps in my mouth and when I showed the doctor there was scabbing under the under head of my penis along with my pee hole being red and buring..how can u explain the burning feet and hands tho?...my father who I live with had shingles right before I was with this girl and got sick. Could that play a role in this?

      Hello, 
      I was diagnosed with hsv1&2 earlier this year. I was prescribed 1g of valtrex (valacyclovir) a day for suppressive therapy.  Valtrex helps greatly with my symtoms, but I recently had to leave my job for health reasons and will no longer have health insurance to get prescribed valtrex. 
      Does anyone know where I can purchase valtrex (valacyclovir) online without a prescription?

      Hello,
      Looking for a little advice, thanks in advance to anyone who can provide any. Sorry long post but it's an unusual case.....
      Although a new member here I am, unfortunately, a veteran HSV2 sufferer, contracted over 30 years ago. Male, 55yo, hetero, married. 
      It has always been an irritant, but liveable, or so I thought, as although outbreaks are frequent the lesions are rarely anywhere that cause a big problem.
      The virus entered via the genitals, as for most, but after the primary outbreak the lesions are mostly at the base of the spine or behind my ear, occasionally on the chin but almost never on the classic sites of lips or genitals. So it hasn't been a big headache for my sex life over the years, which is a big plus, and I've never passed it to anyone despite having quite a few partners, for which I am very grateful.
      However, for the last 2-3 years I've been suffering slowly increasing neurological symptoms, starting with deafness and Menieres-type symptoms in the right ear, and recently pyloric sphincter reflux issues,  scary moments when I almost-vomit while falling asleep, and increasingly poor digestion. My intellect and concentration is not what it was, either. Frequent night sweats and low fevers.
      After tests for MS and all sorts of other things and noticing that my HSV2 antibodies level is off the scale (I stupidly hadn't informed him about HSV2 as I thought it irrelevant) on an almost permanent basis, my doctor thinks the immune system is causing neurological damage due to being activated permanently against the HSV2 (uselessly I might add) - so similar to MS in a way. He says it's rare, but it happens.
      Soon I will have the first appointment with the neurologist to discuss this, but at the moment Covid19 is making getting an appointment difficult.
      Obviously I need to change my life to live it in a way that will calm the HSV2, as it's not going anywhere.  Reduced sugar, reduced alcohol, reduced high-arginine foods (I love Brazil nuts 😞 ) seems the way to go. Fasting works quite well but difficult when at home (I work away sometimes but not atm due to Covid)
       
      Right - that advice....
      I want to start with some dietary supplements to help. Lysine about 3g and Zinc 25mg looks a good place to start. Any other "obvious" ones?  What about the dietary change, I like cream as well, does that have to go too? 😞
      Any other obvious things I should be considering?

      So this is going to be a long one but please stick it out. I’ll be extremely grateful.
      So after going to my doctors for a general check up due to me having Molluscum (had during childhood, but reappeared when I was 19) he mentioned having a routine STD check.
      I thought nothing of it and accepted. Everything came back negative, syphillis, chlamydia, ghonnerea and HIV. 
      What I didn’t realise is that herpes wasn’t a routine test and I started looking online about what herpes involved. I was scared and uncertain about my status now beings as the more I read. The more symptoms I believe I’ve had.
      starting in 2018 I had developed iritis which apparently can be a result of H. This however was during a stressful period of my life. 
      Since my first sexual partner my posterior fourchette has always been weak and I have little tears (not serious) ever since. They heal within a day. 
      However. Whilst itchiness, blisters, soreness is the typical symptoms for when people have it (and I have never had) I have noticed that I have had a very very thin, not deep, none sore (unless touched) cut on my inner labia a few weeks ago. 
      Then three days ago I had a tiny tiny cut which resembled more of very thin tear I guess it closer to a definition, since the one on my labia was more of a cut ( but I would also say like a scratch) on the upper part of my genitals just where the pubic area ended. It was quite sore when touched but didn’t bother me otherwise. I have had this cut before however typically when my pubic hair is growing back. In around about the same area which goes away within 2-3 days maximum.
      Does this seem like genital herpes?
      further more, I now have concerns about my mouth too. This is the first time this has ever happened to me. And had occurred two days after I started panicking about this, so I would say I was extremely stressed.
      My tongue turned Pale and patchy with red indents on my tongue. Ulcers (eventhough they didn’t hurt) appeared on the back of the sides of my tongue. The sores then travelled all along the sides of my tongue to the tip of my tongue. (A few yellow patches still being on the back of either side of my tongue) Being in one place, then moving to another. I must say that I had smaller sores and then I had food poisoning which resulted in vomiting which then made the sores triple in amount. Also there are light yellow patches/dots on the back of my throat. 
      I have been using salt water rinses and bonjella on the sores. It’s important to note that the sores don’t hurt or irritate me UNLESS I use the bonjela which causes them to burn a little. 
      I have never had anything like this in my mouth before and this has lasted two weeks,  And I guess I’m just extremely upset because I’ve only had two sexual partners. And have been with my current partner for two years. So for all of this to suddenly occur has created so much stress for me. I’ve already told him that there is a possibility since I wanted to be open from the very beginning, but since the COVID scares, anywhere I could get the cuts on my genital swabbed is closed and it’s already gone now. So I’m hoping I could eat some advice here .. 
      when seeing my GP about my mouth she said it didnt look like herpes and was quite certain. She said it just looked like ulcers and said it could be down to the immense stress I’ve put myself under due to panicking.
      So... Is this thrush/stress/herpes??? 
      Here are the links to the Reddit page I made showing the problems with my mouth as I unfortunately have no pictures of my genital cut.

      we have both been experiencing cold like symptoms , chills ( no fever) , cough , congestion , body just feels weak . Is this a ob sign ? no new sores have surfaced , except for some vaginal itchiness for me . ( may be a yeast infection from something i used to ease symptoms during previous ob)

      Hey guys I tested HSV 2 (IGG), Type-Spec AB 0.95 (equivocal) back on 2/27. I just retested and received my results today (blood was drawn on Monday) and it’s coming up equivocal again 🤦‍♂️. 
       
      The results on this second test were 
      HSV 2 (IGG),TYPE-SPEC ABYour Value0.94
      Unit: index
      (NOTE)
      Index Interpretation
      ----- --------------
      <0.90 Negative
      0.90-1.09 Equivocal
      >1.09 Positive
       
      I’ve never had an outbreak and although I’m promiscuous, I do use condoms. The amount of igg detected has dropped by .01 and I’m assuming that if I did have it it should have gone up not down. Now I’m no doctor but even the doctors are confused about the equivocal results. 
       
      I had the first doctor tell me it’s the same as a positive but I read differently online. This same doctor also told me that if you don’t have an outbreak you can’t pass it, which is false. So I definitely didn’t trust that first doctor and went for a second opinion. 
       
      The second opinion was altogether lost about the equivocal results. They didn’t have a good answer and suggested another test. They also examined my genital area for any outbreak (which they didn’t find because I’ve never had one). Another equivocal result this time slightly lower I’m pretty sure at this point all I can do is wait it out a month and get tested again. I wanna have sex so bad but at the same time I’m a responsible person and definitely would not want to pass anything on to anybody so I’ve been holding out until I know for sure I do or don’t have it. 

      @WilsoInAus
      one last thing... one of the doctors there did say that if you come in contact with a minuscule amount (not enough to infect you, because most people do come in contact with minuscule amounts.) that that’s the reason we have the igg antibodies in our body. So I was thinking maybe I could have come in contact with a small amount and thus the reason for this equivocal amount. I dunno I’m fucking confused.
