I see, thank you so much for your opinion. I can’t imagine what the three big blisters on my lower lip were if not herpes, and the little micro bumps/pimples on my glans..never had anything like that before in my life and now here they are, weeks after an encounter with an untested likely carrier. What is the “probability percentage” of a man contracting HSV 1 & 2 from a positive female showing no visible symptoms? The web says things like “8-10% chance within a year of sleeping with them” which, cannot possibly be right given that a chance encounter would then have a transmissibility likelihood in the 0.005- range or so…sounds like poor study in determining such results, which is of course easy to understand given the natire of HSV. How would they study something most people have/will contract in life that usually doesn’t even show itself in patients? The 8-10% thing just sounds insane really given that most people will have HSV by 40…it must be well more contageous than science really yet knows or has “proven”, just such low figures for what is by-far the most commonly transmitted sti, and the one most don’t know they have because symptoms are less likely than an asymptomatice HSV infection. Also the least widely tested sti on top of that, as it is not recommended to get tests by the CDC or WHO unless you have symptoms which science tells us, the vast majority do not ever experience. Herpes symptoms are so vague, most positive people apparently have none, or mild ones that don’t burst or scab..makes diagnosis almost not possible without the wb I guess. I’ll just have to wait and retake an IgG in a couple months then fly to the states for a wb I suppose. When you say moat equivicals stay that way or go low positive you do mean positive for herpes, correct? That is, is a ‘low positive’ more likely to be false than a high one?
Thank you so, so much Terri, it is hard to accept that HSV has so much misinformation and ingnorance from the medical world.
