  1. Do you take any daily suppressants?
  2. Hi everyone, I am 21 years old and I am starting grad school in August. I got herpes when i was 19 and I am starting to think about the future and dating and marriage. I am honestly so scared to even try to date and it freaks me out that I won't be able to get married or have children because of my herpes.
  3. Hi everyone. I got infected with genital herpes type 1 2 years ago. I have not had an outbreak since my initial outbreak. I am currently talking to this boy who I know wants to have sex with me and I do too but I am scared of giving it to him. I have tried to take Valaclovir to help reduce my transmission but it gives me terrible headaches. has anyone tried taking acyclovir for suppression?
  4. Hi, I am currently seeing this boy who does not have herpes and I started taking valtrex to reduce the spread. I have herpes type 1 on my genitals. I am getting bad headaches from valtrex and I was wondering if anyone else who is with a significant other who also does not have herpes does not use daily suppressants?
  5. Hi I have herpes type 1 on my genitals. I am a 21 year old female and I have had it for almost 2 years and only had my one initial outbreak. I have a few questions: -If I was to have sex with a box just vaginally and no oral sex and he wore a condom are the transmission rates high? - I don't take valtrex but I have heard that taking it everyday reduces the risk of transmission a lot? - Also is it true that HSV type 1 transmission is not as prevalent? thank you
  6. Hi everyone, I have herpes type 1 on my genitals. I have only had one initial outbreak and I remember it being big sores on my private area. I have noticed that I always have these little white bumps on my private area. I don't know if they are from shaving or a herpes outbreak. They don't hurt they are just there and very tiny and almost look like little pimples. Does anyone else experience these?
  7. Do you take them before you have sex to lower transmission rate?
  8. Hi everyone, I have type 1 herpes on my genitals. I have only had my initial outbreak but I was wondering should I be taking valtrex everyday for outbreaks even if I haven't had an outbreak since my initial outbreak
  9. Hi I am the same age as you and I am also going into my senior year of college. I got herpes type 1 after loosing my virginity to this guy I was talking to for months and I really liked. The crazy thing about it is he didn't even have herpes but must have had a cold sore on his lip that i didn't see. It is hard being in college with it but like you i'm just focusing on my future right now and getting into grad school. Stay strong!
  10. Hi everyone, I contacted herpes type 1 on my genitals while receiving oral sex. The man tested negative for everything and I don't believe he had any cold sores on his lips so i'm not sure how I got it we did not have sex just oral sex. I have only had my initial outbreak which was a year and a half ago. I was wondering because i have herpes type 1 on my genital if I used condoms and did not receive any oral sex if the rate of transmission will be low? also is it true that because herpes type 1 is usually on the mouth it is not suppose to be on the genitals and it is not used to the area? thank you
  11. Hi I have type 1 herpes on my genitals that I received from Oral sex. I am talking to this new guy and I was wondering if he gives me oral sex will he get it on his lips? Has anyone that has type 1 on their genitals passed it to their partner through oral sex? I am also taking antivirals as well.
  12. have you heard of taking red marine algae as a daily suppressetant? would this work as an antiviral too?
  13. so it is lower than 4% for genital if it is 4% for female to male with hsv?
  14. Hi I have recently been diagnosed with genital hsv type 1. I am reading different things and some people say that there is a very little chance of transmission for herpes type 1 when it is on the genitals since it is suppose to be in the mouth is this true? does anyone who have genital hsv 1 have you transmitted it to your partner?
  15. Hi everyone I have genital hsv type 1 and has only had my initial outbreak. I want to have sex with this boy I really like and he wants to have sex with me he took my virginity and then I went away to Ireland and some boy gave me this. He knows the whole situation about my herpes but I dont want to give it to him. Has any taken or tried taking red marine algae as a suppressive therapy every day. I was wondering if I should take this instead of taking valtrex everyday. I really dont want to take valtrex everyday
