Dear Dr. Vanessa, My GF Has Genital Herpes – What Are My Risks?

posted by elizardbits at 10:04 AM on December 2, 2012 [18 favorites] Yeah, he sounds squirrelly in a way that would make me nervous: – it’s not like he has one outbreak every couple of years, which facilitates denial of an embarrassing thing (which may still suck, but happens, and is understandable). What I can’t get over somehow is a resentment I harbor against my kids. posted by Forktine at 7:00 AM on February 16, 2009 Long story short, you should still have your boyfriend ask the doc about HPV, test or no test. posted by InsanePenguin at 3:17 PM on June 10, 2010 Have you ever thought about revenge and suicide? So let me get this straight your b/f just automatically assumed he had herpes and went to his doctor and got on acyclovir, and then after that ran out got put on valtrex? No, there is still the possibility that she could give you genital herpes as her cold sore would have touched your genitals, unless you wore a condom. My best friend has herpes and the social stigma that is attached to the disease is by far the worst aspect.

I take tons of Vitamin D but the corn trumps it so I have to read labels devotedly. So you need to find a way to forgive yourself without involving her family. After a week my doctor’s office called and said my second test came back negative, which could mean the first test was a false positive. Although many people infected with HSV develop labial or genital lesions, the majority are either undiagnosed or display no physical symptoms. Candidiasis is a yeast infection that causes a whitish overgrowth in the mouth. But here it comes again,”Oh ya, by the way I have genital herpes”. in oral sex, can someone with a cold sore on the lips transmit the herpes virus to another person and have it manifest as genital herpes andor lip cold sores (even.

I have in one night had unprotected sex with two girls, one of my friends also had unprotected sex with that night and girl, and I had him, now more than 5 days and yesterday I realized something dry scaly skin near the end of my penis /, today I rubbed the skin and has been replaced, but there are red marks though: / I am very concerned and I, to find out how and why this happened, and what is ? How men and women can catch genital herpes, symptoms, and what you can do. While wearing a condom is prudent, it does not fully protect you from getting or passing along herpes.

I’ve been with my boyfriend for a little over a year and I trust him to know that he did not cheat on me. If I take Valtrex, will that help reduce the chance of me transmitting my herpes through oral sex?

The virus has spread to different countries around the world. Didn’t read most of this but statistically several people in this thread have genital herpes given that 1 in 4 women have it and 1 in 7 men have it. However i feel obligated to notify anyone I may be sexual with though my argument to this is that people dont go around saying hey, i get cold sores, if so everyone would be saying this, and since that is technically what i have, I do not know how to go about this Thanks!.
