Hi Friends! I hope you are all doing well 🙂! I wanted to reach out and ask this question, because I have been having some worries about it. Can you pass HSV through urine, period blood, or poo? I know that is an... odd questions to say the least, but I was thinking about sharing a bathroom with those who do not have Gential HSV-1. When someone else has to clean the toilet or the shower, etc, could they contract it? Or, if you accidentally get a little drop of urine on the toilet seat, and you wipe it off, could the next person who sits on it get herpes somehow? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you all SO much!!
I had my first breakout back in January 2018 & was diagnosed with GHSV-1 through a swab test (& negative for GHSV-2). My boyfriend gave it to me from a cold sore on his lip & I've never had a cold sore on my mouth before so I suppose that is why However it's worrying because from what I've read everyone seems to have only 1 breakout (which is their initial) with GHSV-1, but I've had at least 5 breakouts this year since my first. During the past month I've had 3 separate breakouts & I've a feeling they're stemming from a poor diet & stress but I'd just want to know if these factors are big triggers? I've noticed that they do tend to happen after rough sex, but is that a trigger as well? I don't get colds often so I don't know if it's a matter of my immune system Is this normal? I'm so worried
