I was diagnosed with hsv2 genital. I have had mouth sores since childhood. I am assuming hsv1. My initial outbreak was 4 days in the anal area. It lasted for weeks and was unbearable. My question is , if My mouth is hsv2, and I transferred it to my self. Would I have an almost four week initial outbreak in my genital area after my body would have antibodies for it from my mouth.
I believe my partner gave it to me after a five month hiatus. He says I transferred it to myself. We split after this genital outbreak and my diagnosis after nearly four weeks of problems below.
He is being tested on Monday. I had a first outbreak starting about four days after having sex with him. We had been apart for 5 months. I thought I had a yeast infection. Tried to clear it up. After three weeks of distress , I finally looked and saw a lesion. Called my Dr. Went immediately over and was tested and given yeast infection medicine. Days later it was hsv2 positive. My partner is trying to tell me that I transferred it to myself. We'll see. I don't believe him.
