Hi all, I find myself very emotional typing this but I thought i'd ask this question because I am so so worried. I was recently diagnosed with ghsv1 in December.. after my primary outbreak I had another tiny outbreak exactly a month later (so weird) so i asked my Dr. to put me on antivirals because I am under a lot of stress with graduate school and i have been ok since and no outbreaks since jan. I also wanted to go on antivirals because I am TERRIFIED to transmit this to anyone. My question is how likely am I to give ghsv1 to someone from sex being I am on antivirals ? Is there anyone out there that has had sex plenty of times with specifically ghsv1 and hasn't transmitted?
Can a flu shot trigger an outbreak? I have ghsv-1 Since March 2019 and I got the flu shot yesterday and I’m feeling the achy pain down there which is semi similar to my first ob. Idk if it’s a coincidence or not but it’s Odd. I also have my period, shaved last week with a trimmer, and had sex (with condoms for the first time since infected). I am aware These are all triggers, but I have been fine with these before and the only different thing in play is the flu shot and sex.
CAN A MALE TRANSMIT GHSV 1 TO A FEMALE by just sticking the tip in ???? So i recently met someone and things got too heated and i didnt disclose until after the foreplay. Ive felt great since Janurary this year (had H since last year feb) Ive had slight prodrome (slight ingling nerve pain) recently and thought i was getting an OB but what looked like a pimple forming went away... I told her last night and shes been a mess , already talking as if she has it 😔😔 any info is appreciated. @mr_hopp @Ishmael
Hello all, First time poster, but have been reading this forum for months and find it super helpful and supportive. I am looking for experiences/product suggestions relative to external care of GHSV. I remember reading another thread that emphasized the importance of taking good care of the area but I am looking for more details and would appreciate brand specific suggestions. I would like to know what kind of soaps are safe to use and also wondering if there’s a moisturizer that is safe for external areas. I am a female diagnosed with Type 1 last August after a terrible initial outbreak and have had minor outbreaks for the last few months. They seem to be getting better in that they are less in number and intensity, yet still I feel like I am constantly dealing with some symptoms. Which I’m sure you all know starts to mess with your head a bit! The location of my outbreaks is mostly on the mons pubis so I *think* it is safe to apply stuff to this area as it is external. I also suffer from eczema at other locations on my skin (exacerbated in winter) and overall dry skin, so I’m kind of wondering if there’s a bit of that going on down there too. Any insight would be much appreciated.
