  1. Hi so I was diagnosed with hsv 1 since my igg came back positive. Not put on medicine and never had an outbreak, not really sure how/ when I got it either. I’m just so confused on the transmission rates i’ll see percentages but it is usually for genital herpes. I’m also taking lysine vitamin c just to make sure I don’t get one. I have a boyfriend that knows I have this but i’m afraid to give him oral since we have unprotected sex. Does viral shedding occur daily, monthly, yearly? How can I make the transmission rate as low as possible?
  2. hello everyone. i’m 21 years old and last month my doctor told me I had Hsv 1 orally and my igg number was 19. i tested negatively for hsv2. when she told me she basically made it seem like no big deal and didn’t prescribe me medicine or anything just said to not have oral sex when i have a cold sore. I was still trying to process the fact that I had it. I always use condoms and only had oral sex with one guy at the time and he told me he doesn’t have anything (which could obviously be false). I feel like I can’t move on with my life. I have so many questions and my anxiety is driving me crazy. I don’t think i’ll ever be able to tell anyone I have this disease. I feel completely alone and confused on how I got it. I got my first outbreak a few days ago in the corner of my mouth, it isn’t painful and i didn’t even realize until i was doing my makeup and literally pulled my lip and saw it. Im not sure how long i’ve had it and I am afraid of giving it to someone that i’ve smoked with or guys i’ve kissed. Will I even be able to have children and kiss them? What is the statistics behind hsv1 transmission? I don’t want to take prescription for this, does anyone have any natural remedies?
