Newly Diagnosis

Recommended Posts

I recently got my blood tests back today and it turns out I have HSV-2. The test also told me the level that I’m at right now. It says it was high and that it’s 15.9. I’m assuming I’m going through my first outbreak at the moment. I’m going to schedule an appointment with my physician this week hopefully. I don’t know how I’m going to tell my parents about this, I never had anything severe happen to me before and I’m emotionally stuck. I feel like I’m going to be judged and seen as an embarrassment. I really don’t trust any of my “friends” with information like this . I live with 4 other family members and I’ve been reading that I cannot spread the virus through any objects or things I would use in everyday life at home. I just wanted clarification for that. If I was get on medication immediately… would that slow down the outbreak I’m currently having ?

Hi @virgoboi00 two questions… was the test IgG or IgM? Have you ever had sexual activity in the past?

 

It was lgG & I didn’t become sexually active until I was 20. (I’m 21).

It would appear that you have HSV-2 beyond reasonable doubt. 
It’s a bit unusual to be infected at your age given the few number of partners possible (and few number that your partners have been with). 
If you belong to a higher incidence demographic or country, then there is an appreciable chance you were infected at birth.

You suggest an outbreak, where and what does this actually consist of?

I stay in the US so the demographic is large. Being effected at birth is scary lol because that means it could’ve been dormant for a while wow. Recently I had like 1-2 very small white bumps around my anal area. That’s the only area that’s effecting me right now.

That does not sound like herpes (have you received anal sex though?)

I'd recommend getting a swab of the 'bumps' if your doctor thinks there is any chance of herpes. Maybe repeat the IgG testing in case there was a lab mixup.

Actually, it is often a not a bad thing to have been infected with HSV-2 at birth... why? Because it is probably on your upper body or oral region and extremely unlikely to spread or cause outbreaks and it provides huge protection from HSV-1.

I’ve only been receiving oral sex. I haven’t did oral sex with my anal area in a long time either. I also haven’t did penetration sex in a longgg time. I actually got tested twice at 2 different labs to be sure and each lab said I had herpes. The first lab told me but they didn’t specify which one. This different lab did a lgG test. My HSV-1 result was negative and then it said my HSV-2 was positive. My level was way over 1.09. I don’t see how it could’ve been a mix up if I got 2 positive results .

Hey @virgoboi00 sorry for the direct question, but have you ever received unprotected anal sex from mature guys? Have you had unprotected vaginal sex?

Please recheck the results carefully, are you sure you don't have HSV-1? Be very explicit about the test result if it was HSV-2 IgG that was positive. 1.1? 1.59? 8? 15? etc.

Its all not quite adding up to a genital HSV-2 infection at present.

HSV-1 : <0.90 IgG

HSV-2: 15.90 IgG

Yes, I’ve received unprotected anal sex before.

@virgoboi00 I think the most plausible explanation here is that you were infected soon after becoming sexually active and most likely from anal sex where you may not have correctly interpreted an outbreak in that region. The 15.9 suggests an infection that is at least several months old.

Note that there is no requirement to tell anyone about this condition apart from what your ethics tells you about sexual partners.

      Hang on @tweetsoc this is just self-indulgent self-delusion. What is super tricky about HSV? You're only saying that because of the super trick situation you are in having cheated on your partner, stop deflecting, how does that help anyone least of all yourself? You do not know you are going through an issue with HSV; it is pretty much certain you are not.

      The first article is from 'The Sun' which is just a sensationalist rag. The second article deals with a correlation between HSV-2 and cardiovascular issues that may cause ED. Did you actually read it? NONE of the participants experienced ED at the time of infection and 0.5% self reported EDS after 12 months. How does that fit with your 9 days. Herpes infections do not cause orchitis, that's just a myth that is started and perpetuated by people on web forums. There is no medical evidence of this. It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with me on HSV. There is no subjectivity in the facts that I present.

      None of this changes the fact that: you cheated on your partner and you can't cope with that; and you do NOT have genital HSV. Yes I do have to lecture about messing up because you are not dealing with it. You are creating a world of confusion from fake and/or obscure accounts of HSV in order to not deal with it. Whether you consider it nasty or not is exactly the point - this is the key thing that is wrong with you - when are you going to address - man up! Who has tested years later despite a negative WB?

      Thanks tweetsoc,  I haven't taken anything but ibuprofen. My doctor won't give me anything without the lab work. I get tested on the 17th and if negative again 4 weeks after that  I will look into prostatitis and definitely ask him about it. Best of luck to you. I hope you get some relief. Are your symptoms constant or do they come and go? It's strange how the brain works. Sometimes this drives me crazy and sometimes I have just got used to the feeling of hot sauce in my pants. good luck to you.
