My question is if it’s GHSV1 Could I have gotten GHSV2 on top of that? And if you have both in the genital area do the sore come in the same spot?
That’s quite unlikely, but you could have HSV 1 orally and HSV 2 genitally
How likely is it that the person Who had oral sex with the woman with something on her lip gave me the ghsv1 one and not 2.
I really don’t know. But HSV 1 is rarely passed through intercourse.
I’m so confused by all this and so upset especially I just don’t want to give it to my husband and having to deal with my other problem on top of this it’s a lot to handle.
I would strongly suggest, again, that you get the western blot to find out exactly what you have now. Without that, you just can’t know where to begin managing things.
So basically what are the statistics of a reactivation of herpes after 20+ years and the likelihood of passing it to someone you’ve been with for a long time? How and what do I tell my husband?
Please see the answer just above.
I’m just so mad at myself that I didn’t get copy of the lab reports from 26 years ago so I would know what I have or don’t have
Well, maybe they didn’t even type the virus so don’t be mad at yourself!
Basically I’m so nervous to get it swabbed and have a come back as GHSV2.
You know, it is what it is, right? Now you just have to manage it and HSV 1 and HSV 2 are managed quite differently
Basically I only get 2 to 3 small sores and they go away pretty quickly the one on my butt was a new thing and it was big and it was disgusting.
Outbreaks on the buttocks are quite painful and last longer, for sure
What is the difference between HSV-1 and HSV-2 besides the location just that you can get it more frequently? Or are the sores more painful and worse?
HSV 1 genitally rarely recurs and is rarely shed. But they look the same, when they happen
