I was only swabbed tested for an outbreak around my anal area and was told i have genitial herpes given a prescription and that was it. after reading it seems there are two types of genitial herpes. Can you explain the difference? Also could my partner get oral herpes by giving oral sex?View Thread
When you say i have have hsv 2 what exactlydo You mean. I thought hsv 2 WAS below the belt. One more thing. Is it true that you are to always get your outbreak in the same area?. Mine started in butt area for about two years but never appeared there again now every time it's near the vagina area.View Thread
I am female. No she didn't explain what type, she just said it was genital herpes gave me a prescription and sent me on my way. I always had outbreaks maybe 3 Times a year and I would take the meds when I feel one coming on but haven't had an outbreak in a year but I would feel the tingling in my leg but nothing would happen. My partner is aware but from my understanding I thought if there were no outbreaks at the time u were ok amd transmission was low, also I thought if you were no where near the outbreak your partner was safe as long as they went no where near it. Thought it had to actually be touched. Ex: I would always get a outbreak near the anal area so reveiving oral sex if they stayed away from the outbreak it was fine.View Thread
Thank you much. A huge weight lifted. I was actually swab tested like 8 years ago. I haven't had an outbreak in about a year but I get the symptoms does that mean anything? P.s. I don't take medication. Thanks for helping make people lives easier to deal with.View Thread
