  1. Hi, I want to add a few more details to your response. ex: If I have GHSV1 and my partner has had in the past Oral HSV1 and has antibodies this does not prevent him from getting HSV1 in his genitals. Most people assume that this is considered a re-infection but it is not, some doctors see it as a form of virus spread, where you now spread your virus from your mouth to your genitals and it is highly contagious and highly likely if you have an active Outbreak, like girls that have GHSV1 can totally give their partner GHSV1 even if he has antibodies. I for instance had H
  2. Hi All I wanted to share and update on my story as hopefully it can help others. I have had herpetic whitlow for over 4 yrs, I have no idea how I got it but I dare to think it was while I was working out sharing towels touching hands at the gym etc, I mean who knows and it doesn't matter now. Well after all this time I am able to say that on one night while I was away on vacay my BF and I messed around over the Webcam and I played with my self with my herpetic whitlow finger, (I never knew it was herpes on my finger) and I spread it on my Genitals, and it was definite
  3. HI Iamme15 i felt every word you wrote in your post. crying as I type these words, running out of will and wanting to keep it all in because saying it would just cause pain to others. Just know that wherever you are I am feeling the exact same way, and if it helps you, you are not alone. I am going through the exact same struggle and in so much pain that only someone going through this could understand.
  4. Thanks for your reply. It seems, I have both Ghsv1 and Oral HSV1. Do you know of any additional info I can use to get some idea on how frequent outbreaks are? SO far, I have had only a single/first GHSV1 outbreak which was nearly 2 years ago and recently a few days ago I got a cold sore for the first time in my life. It must of been inside my body for a long time and just now it gave me sore in my lips/mouth area. I want to talk to individuals who has both HSV1, and Id like to know how often they get outbreaks in either places.
  5. Hi all Can anyone shed some light. Is it true that you can get infected with the same virus (HSV1, in my case) in separate locations, separate times? thanks
  6. 1st and foremost, you need to get a swab test asap! I strongly recommend this now because if you get tested by blood, you may get a negative result since you body is still building antibodies from this recent infection. lets say that your boyfriend has HSV1 which is definitely most common on the lips, well you may have contracted the virus on your genitals and in your mouth. Since the virus is new to your body, it attacked both places. I want you to stay relaxed. HSV1 is less aggressive in the genitals, I contracted it 1 yr ago and so far I only had my first outbreak. Thank god.
  7. Hi Songbird, I am following this thread because I, myself have the exact same issue. I shave down there and OMG the moment the hair starts growing back, I can feel the extreme sensitivity. I've had a single one outbreak in March 2018 (my initial), GHSV1. I am hoping it goes away over time but at this rate it will probably take many many years because I am about to reach my 1yr anniversary since my OB and I my skin is extremely sensitive.
  8. This will make you much stronger. We all hate rejection, not just in our community but in everything we do in life. Right now, I don’t blame him but unfortunately he is entitled to seek a person that doesn’t any stds and that’s okay. I asure you he is thankful to know that you cared enough to disclose. It’s his choice and Nothing wrong with that. You should move on to someone else. It is easier to change your self than change someone else.
  9. The guy I was dating was a regular person, I met him before I contracted the virus. It literally turns out that he has always had the virus since he was little. A pure coincidence that can easily happen to anyone. As I stated hsv1 is extremly common and look my advice may not be accepted by many but here it goes: this only goes for HSV1 carriers like yourself afraid of the stigma (which we all are, I admit) tell her from the beginning you have HSV1 and it commonly causes fever sores/cold sores. Tell her that you are disclosing it because it can be transferred to her mouth or her geni
  10. Hi Robdarko I encountered a similar situation except the guy to gave me GHSV1 literally didn't care and took off. So I am currently dating a person whom I disclosed I had the HSV1 virus and told him that he can get it genitally or in his mouth. He said no problem, didn't care about it much so After 7 months of sex, no protection and no suppressive therapy and no outbreaks (aside from the first one) Out of nowhere I got extremely paranoid and depressed and turns out I cried and cried and confessed to him why I was so sad and he was extremely supportive as I was scared that I would give i
  11. Yes you are right. Their business now. I know because he was the only man I had intimacy with in the past 3 years. it just sucks the whole act was about 5 min. For sure he gave it to me, the outbreak was about a week after my encounter with him and he mentioned he may have contracted it from a blowjob but i never knew more because he literally never touched the subject or spoke to me, never even care about nothing. it was definitely Genital to genital, male giving it to female.
  12. I also got Genital Hsv1 from genital to genital. (We only had intercourse, no oral) the transmission was from Male to female (me)and he had No visible outbreaks and it was ONE TIME intimacy, it lasted 5 min MAX and now I have to carry this for the rest of my life. I hate my life 🙁
  13. So here it goes: the guy guy who gave it to me has been extremly irresponsable, never cared about the hell I went through and still going through after he gave me GHSV1. He literally got scared and didn’t speak to me to even confront me. I reached out to him multiple times and he never responded and never wanted to touch the subject. Well I have this guy as a fb friend, and he is getting married to this super nice girl that most likely doesn’t know that he has ghsv1. Should I send her a message and warn her about his std so that she doesn’t go through what’s i went through?
  14. I want to start continue my laser treatment that I was doing before I contracted ghsv1 and I can go on suppressive therapy few days before the laser treatment but I am afraid that once I get off the suppressive therapy I can awaken an outbreak what are your thoughts?? (So far I’ve only had a single first and only outbreak about 8months ago)
  15. Do you have type 1 or 2? How long have you had it?
