In my opinion though this statistic is worthless when you think about how the relationship will go and how long it could go for. I’m pretty sure studies showed that HSV-1 outbreaks are more common when the infection is on the mouth yet less common when it is on the genitals. I also figured it was time to meet my herpes, so I requested an off-menu HSV blood test that isn’t considered part of the routine STD-screening panel. If so, I’d have to try pretty hard for a positive diagnosis. I’m sure I have HSVI (they did a culture of the fluid from the sores i had during my initial outbreak).

I’m sure she told you so if you guys do get into a sexual relationship, you can protect yourself. An ex- of mine used to get a few days warning before she had outbreak of oral herpes and so it was pretty easy to avoid making contact at an infectious time. I’m interested in a girl who says she has herpes. Her ex-boyfriend cheated on her and acquired herpes, and passed it on to her when he performed oral sex on her. It is quite possible that this girl never experienced an outbreak, even though she had HSV-1. I’m afraid that my partner has spread herpes to me because we had unprotected sex. She told me that she has 1st. Unfortunately, once the virus has invaded your body, the microbe will remain forever deep in certain nerve cells. Antibiotic drugs will not stop the progress of herpetic infection. I have had recurring cold sores on the mouth off and on for pretty much my whole life.
I have never been tested or taken medication, but I’m pretty sure I’ve had about three herpes outbreaks. I am straight and all of my friends think that there is something wrong with me because I have not had sex yet (with a woman). After performing oral sex on my girlfriend, I break out with cold sores around my mouth. Am I at risk for herpes? My ex-boyfriend cheated on me and we did have unprotected sex so Im pretty sure I contracted it from him. After the relationship ended (for non-STI reasons), I wanted to get tested for HSV II, but my doctor said that because it takes so long to build up antibodies, results would be inconclusive.

If one of you gets cold sores and the other doesn’t (or isn’t sure), what steps can you take to protect each other?

After the nurse, I wasn’t sure what kind of reaction to expect from my gynecologist. What I didn’t expect, was for her to roll her eyes. I know I’m low risk and tested with a low positive in the gray area of testing (below 3.0). She has never had a guy end a relationship with her after finding out about her diagnosis. As she has told me many a time, If they really like you, it won’t matter.
