Thank you for getting back to me.. The lack of information is so disheartening! My GYN basically acts like this diagnosis is no big deal whatsoever. She told me that most people will be exposed to it or will contract it at some point in their lives. Do you agree?
Even though there are no studies on genital HSV 1 transmission, in your vast experience, have you seen many cases of people catching HSV 1 from the genitals only? I understand that it is virtually impossible to tell whether people have told you the truth about their sexual activities, but I am hoping you can base your answer off of patients’ representations to you.
