Yes herpes is a virus.

There currently are products to help prevent transmission. However you can still catch this and there is not cure provided by "mainstream" medicine of late.

You at highest risk of catching herpes whilst your girl friend has an outbreak. Do not have sexual contact with her during an outbreak ot up to a week after wards.

Condoms, Anti-viral and several natural suppliments can help fight this virus therefore further reducing the risk of contracting the virus.

Also a change in diet can also help.

Take care and please ask anything about herpes here.

products for prevention

Hi Jacov -

don't have sex if your partner feels a tingling or itching, burning sensation at the site. Don't have sex if your partner is having an outbreak. Take a shower after (soap is supposed to kill the virus). Keep towels and bedding clean and do not share towels. Use condoms and barriers (dental dams) durning sex. After a while as you talk and build trust you can decide not to use protection if you can keep an open communication. Good Luck!

Definately read the right side bar about spreading and viral shedding. It will answer alot of your questions as to how the virus functions. Don't give up on her and kudos for coming here and educating yourself.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
