Well. That is EXACTLY how my ex gave me genital herpes. Im telling you right now my first outbreak was TORTURE! The clinic I went to told me ot wasnt herpes and gave me some antibiotics for a skin infection while I rotted away....I then went to my doctors office (in a wheel chair) and he looked at my chart which had hvs 1 written right on it.....they then prescribed me vicaden for the pain and my medicine. This was two months ago. Since then...ive only gone 4 days without a breakout. They arent near as bad as the first...but it literally has ruined my life....for the time being.but what I didnt know was you can get genital herpes from oral. I know it sounds silly but I had no idea. after ive gotten herpes ive realized people are so poorly educated about this and most doctors dont really care. My advice to you is to get anyyyy kind of std check done and dont trust any ONE doctor I had to go to three. Good luck! In the future I suggest taking meds everyday if you want to ever have a sex life.View Thread
