herpes ?s
hello
i feel really strange asking a stranger this but its better than anyone i know. ive read your past blogs and things and seem like a trusted personel who may help me with what is goin on.

ive been diagnosed a couple days ago

if i may have given it to someone is there any way to know for sure? or if they gave it to me??

and is it possible it may lay dorment for years before each of us couldve known?

and may i ever recieve unprotected sex or oral sex again with out spreading , i know TECHNICALLY it can but in all honesty is it just when soars and scabs are present,

i know these are odd questions under very bad circumstances but any help would be great

thank you :)


gracehhp is preferably who i would like to answer this question

let's start at the very beginning - what testing did you have done? do you have hsv1 or hsv2?

has your partner been tested yet?

do you have a regular partner?

give the clinic a call monday and ask if they typed your swabs to know if it's hsv1 or hsv2. if they didn't type it, ask them if they can call the lab and add a typing on.

you can have either hsv1 or hsv2 genitally.

many things cause sore throats. evidently they don't suspect oral herpes as a cause.

link is in our read before posting post.

so your partner hasn't been tested yet?  her regular provider should be able to order the testing for her. since her regular partner has been diagnosed with herpes, it's proper that she get tested and no one should be questioning her or giving her a hard time about it.
