Just tell you daughter just do not kids her child if sure has an oral outbreak. And the diagnosis inevitably warped the way I thought about myself. I don’t know who told you that, but you don’t, she said. Sometimes the antibodies for herpes just go away, and blood tests can no longer detect them, she told me as she closed my file. Yeah but you know they don’t usually test for herpes right? I decided to just bite the bullet and get tested for my own peace of mind. I asked my doctor, So you think I don’t have it, but technically, I could still have it right?

This is most serious in women who have their first symptoms of herpes just before giving birth. Many people with genital herpes don’t know they have it because they have no symptoms. Some people can have herpes but never have symptoms at all. If you have herpes, don’t feel ashamed or guilty, or think you can’t have sex.

Genital Herpes

I don’t know the answer to that – but it is certainly the case with all herpes viruses that if you acquire them as an adult you are more likely to get a severe illness. We know this with chickenpox: adults are more likely to have complications such as pneumonia whereas a child may just have a few spots and few days off school. When you get herpes simplex type 1 as an adult, I think you are equally as likely to have symptomatic recurrences whichever type you catch – but no good study has been done, so this is my educated guess.

A lot of times people are diagnosed with HSV-2 by an antibody test and they don’t know what to do with that information, Johnston says. Now I think we have a number that we can tell people.

I really like hershe is like my dream girl but just informed me she has herpes type 1. All of those things might be sensitive and relevant, but they don’t have to be dealbreaker-type issues if dealt with effectively. But, I think they are just saying this so they cover themselves from being sued. I am just confused on how this all came to be. I mistakenly thought that she couldnt spread it to me.
