Yes, you paid another $25 on May 1, so now you are up to date.
You could most certainly have a swab test done, even if there is no lesion present. I’ve swabbed many times, people who dont’ have sores present and the swabs have been positive. This is due to asymptomatic viral shedding.
Antiviral medicine is fully effective at 5 days of taking the medicine. It is partially effective prior to that. Antiviral medication prevents or greatly reduce viral replication by presenting itself as a necessary substance needed to reproduce, but it’s just a phony and the replication stops.
I have never seen anyone with genital HSV 1 have an outbreak monthly, no, never
I have yet to see someone who has newly acquired HSV 1 genital infection who hadn’t received oral sex in the previous two weeks, but had intercourse only.
Flu symptoms usually only happen with first infection, not usually with recurrences.
