Thanks for answering my questions. Since my positive IGG I’ve been consistently checking and have never seen anything resembling an outbreak.
1. Do you think everyone should be tested for HSV even without symptoms?
2. Statistically speaking, I am more likely to have HSV 1 symptoms and out break on my face /oral right?
3. What percent of people with HSV1 are affected genitally?
4. If my soon to be husband is HSV1 IGG positive we can’t infect each other correct? He is so understanding and it does not concern him, but will get tested eventually for my peace of mind.
I have never had symptoms! I was tested for no reason, so I can never know where my HSV1 lives. I could in theory have gotten it from my soon to be husband. I’ve talked with him, he is not concerned as we have now been together almost 3 years with periods where my anxiety dropped and we had oral sex and we do not use condoms. He said he will get tested but is in no rush to get tested.
How common is it that he would also be asymptomatic?
Would you really suggest someone without symptoms take antivirals?
What is the likelihood I will ever have symptoms after being aware of this for 3 years? Couldn’t I have just been exposed to kissing someone with oral HSV1 and I could be asymptomatic?
So since I have been “positive” for over 2 years without any symptoms, I constantly now check myself and it’s become a bit of an consistent worry and OCD.
Do you think I should let it go? Or could the virus be dormant and randomly decide to be a genital outbreak? Should I avoid giving my future husband oral sex?
I still am upset that doctor tested me for this with no symptoms as it has truly affected me mentally.
How common is it for someone to test positive for HSV1 no symptoms, and to then have it show up years later? Isn’t it common if it is HSV1 genital that it would show up with an initial outbreak?
How many days a year do you think I am shedding (genital or oral)?
