I have tested positive for hsv1 in the past - I actually remember cold sores as a kid on my mouth as well. Anyway, if I transmitted it to my wife at some point is it possible for her to transmit it to me as genital herpes through oral sex. I know I can transmit it to her through oral sex but was wondering since it was "my infection" could it be transmitted back to me if I had infected her??View Thread
I was experiencing burning in tip of penis and had a panel of std tests done and everything came up negative except hsv1 which did not surprise me. I was then tested for a uti and that was positive. I have taken cipro for 8 days and the burning persisted so doc took another sample and today said culture showed no growth. Yet I still have burning in tip of penis but no other symptom. The burning is most intense in the morning. Any thoughts on what can be causing this pain to continues. I have a docs appointment Monday morning but am really concerned. ThanksView Thread
Thank you. I have a follow up. Can you get genital chlamydia by performing oral sex on a man or receiving anal or is the type of chlamydia dependent on where it entered your body? In other words performing oral sex means oral and receiving anal sex means anal chlamydia? Again, thanksView Thread
I tested positive for hsv-1 it was an IgG type specific with a # of 2.46
My question is what does the number mean other than it is positive?
My second questions is can a man catch HSV-1 by having oral performed on him and if yes, would it be genital or could it be oral or could it be either. Finally, if a person performs oral sex on a man and contracts hsv-1, would it be oral or could it be genital? Thank youView Thread
