herpes 1 question

Recommended Posts

My girlfriend has herpes type 1 and gets cold sores on her lips. Although she gets them infrequently (about 1 a year) I am still worried I am going to get it from her. I have never had a visible cold sore but me and my girlfriend are pretty sexual and have unprotected sex/oral sex frequently (never with a present cold sore though). Should I not worry because cold sores are so common anyways and only take precautions when she has an outbreak? Thanks

Well just to let you know yes cold sores are common, but take it seriously. I got HSV1 genitally from my ex he always got cold sores and we just wouldn't kiss when he had them this was in high school. I've known him for ten years. but he hadn't had them in like 2 years, and we had sex he used his saliva for lubrication and boom i get herpes. HSV1 is very contagious in the mouth, but not so much in the genitals so lucky me!!! so just know you might get it. the first outbreak is not fun but i haven't had another, and hopefully i won't. well good luck!

I totally agree with Ohmygosh, I to have been married for 24 years my hubby had cold sores since a child. And i was never exposed to herpes either type 1 or 2, and he had a cold sore 8 days earlier thought he was healed and there was no visible sore and 3 days later I had my first outbreak. yes, it took us 24 years of us being careful and having a good sex life for it to happen but it does happen. Now before i scare you off of having a normal sex life, the first thing you need to do is get tested yourself, find out your herpes status, most people already have been exposed to herpes type 1, if you find out you have that same strain as your g/f then you can rest easy knowing that it is highly unusual that she can give it to you in your genital area. I am no doctor, but the research shows that you cannot ping pong the same strain back and forth to each other. Do your homework, knowledge is power. Take care.

I got genital herpes from my husband's cold sore. Of course he had one at the time and I had told him no...but still. I got it from him. The weird thing is...I had been kissing him all damn day. It was our wedding day. I don't have cold sores, but lucky me gets genital herpes from one short kiss downstairs.

"So if your really worried have her rub an outbreak against your elbow or something. You'll get an outbreak there and you'll have the virus and antibodies in your system without infecting such an area as you lips of genitals."

Angel, what an awesome idea! Doing that could prevent so many problems. I'll have to remember that one to share with my son. Thanks.

      OK sir, let me explain so even you can understand. When I speak of inaccessibility, I'm referring to the immune system; i.e. In general, the immune system does not enter cells and kill viruses. Further, because the herpes virus resides in the neuronal cells, the immune system wont kill those cells (for obvious reasons) to clear the virus. The end result is that the virus is inaccessible by the immune system and the virus remains for life. My statement is/was accurate.

      Well guys, i had the talk... and it went even worse than I thought. He refused to talk to me in person, so I had to do it through text. He said “well I’ve never had symptoms, so I’m not getting tested. You work in the medical field, you probably paid someone to fabricate those test results to try to trap me into a relationship. I will have no further contact with you” ... and then he blocked me from everything. And THEN less than 24 hours later, messaged my old room mate asking her to come over for a beer and movie night.  HES DISGUSTING!! I was considering taking legal action against him, because with his total lack of sympathy, and the fact that he tried to sleep with my friend less than 24 hours after I told him, I think he knew he had it and just didn’t care... so I messaged his ex on Facebook to see if She knew he had it. She wasn’t sure but she is definitely going to get tested now... she told me he is an extreme narcissist and emotionally manipulates people. ... after doing my research, it all makes sense.    So since hes not sorry, I decided to do some type of revenge. I reported him for fishing without a license, and having a trailer with no tags. I’m not sure if he got cited or not, but the cops definitely investigated... because about an hour after my complaint I got 4 consecutive calls from a blocked number less than a minute apart.... he was angry and trying to reach me.    Im just devastated that he did this to me and doesn’t even care. He lead me to believe he cared about me

      Well you’re nearly there. As you say you can’t patent a natural substance such as vitamin C. Anyone can use it and develop their own product.  Nothing stopping this with your mushroom then!

      @WilsoInAus Another display of ignorance, here’s an example, vitamin c is found in nature, you cannot patent vitamin c, but you can make your own mixture of compounds where vitamin c is the pertinent substance and patent that mixture,  regardles though, the main ingredient is an extracted compound found in nature, or perhaps they synthesized a very close mimicking compound so yes you can patent naturally occurring compounds if you know how to make it original like the example I gave above
