    having a sig. other with herpes

    is there anybody here who fits this role? my girlfriend is going through her first outbreak after we have been dating for 4 months, which led me to believe i may have it, but i came up clean. its just strange her first outbreak didn't come for over 4 months, but that happens sometimes i am told, and is besides the point anyways...

    so how hard is it to work around this? what are some common problems that you face, being with somebody who has herpes? from what ive read it sounds like the outbreaks get less and less frequent and severe as time passes, is this really the case? does anyone out here have diabetes and herpes both, like my girlfriend does? this supposedly makes things 10x worse.

    just looking to see how some people work with this.

    Is she taking valtrex? Valtrex can potentially eliminate outbreaks, even though she has herpes.

    Outbreaks do get less and less common as time passes. Additionally, if you get it and take Valtrex, sometimes it can completely eliminate herpes, though it's not officially published as a herpes cure.

    Was she honest in telling you her condition before you had sex?

    this is her first outbreak, neither of us knew she had it until just recently. and she is taking valtrex but it is not helping one bit apparently. she has been in intense pain the last 6 days, im thinking her diabetes has something to do with that (shes not the best at keeping up with that some times) so we are going to a doctor tomorrow to make sure she isnt dying lol.

    I'm not an expert with the diabetes factor. Is she taking one pill 2x day? Valtrex usually clears it up within 7 days.

    She'll be fine. I feel bad for women, as the outbreaks are a lot more painful.

    I was told by a doctor that the only way you can test for herpes is actually swabbing a cold sore. You can have a blood test come up clean and still have herpes...Just something to consider

    A doctor also told me that you have to have an open sore to transmit it, but the valtrex commercials say differently. I think that's more of a selling point and they're trying to push their products. Typically, you have to have direct contact with a cold sore to transmit it, just as you would with the oral version of herpes which is very common. I did a lot of research on herpes when I found out a girl I slept with had it even though I was protected. Scared the hell out of me. It seems to me that there's a lot of conflicting info out there even with doctors.

    HahnB, you're right. The herpes virus resides in the base of your spine. Outbreaks occur when the virus decides to come out to the surface of the skin. Oddly enough a doctor told me that you can transmit it without open sores.

    Typically, 1-2 days before an outbreak, a person will feel tired, possibly running a mild fever.

    Yea, I didn't wanna scare the OP but if this is her first outbreak and she hasn't been with anyone with else for 4 months there's a good chance gimpy may have given it to her. Then again, anything is possible with an unpredictable disease.

    You can most certainly test for herpes without swabbing a cold sore. There are newer methods available and they work: blood tests. Also, shedding of the virus can occur several days prior to a physically noticeable outbreak. You can transmit the virus by skin to skin contact- there doesn't have to be an open sore.

    So a blood test will always work, even when the virus is dormant?

    i believe blood tests for herpes actually test for antibodies your body builds up to help fight herpes (which usually takes up to 4 months to build up enough to show in blood test) this is my only partner of the last 7 months, i said in my first post i just got tested last week and i am clean (well up to 4 months ago i guess), sure i may have it now, but i did not give it to her

    biggimp - now i remember, you're exactly right. They test for the antibodies. There are a few other things which can cause a rise in the antibodies, but from what I have heard from the doc, there are very few.

    wear a rubber....always

    make sure she's taking her valtrex all the time....not just during outbreaks

    it can be spread without evidence of any open sores

    there is no cure, but it can be controlled....relatively speaking

    make sure she's controlling her blood sugars....if she's consistently running
    hyperglycemic, she's going to be more of a set up to have frequent outbreaks
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    As far as I know, yes.

    From www.herpes.com

    " Blood tests are often used when a person has concerns about herpes, but does not have any visible symptoms. In the past, type-specific blood tests were not always accurate because they confused other herpes virus antibodies such as varicella zoster (chicken pox), Epstein Barr, or mononucleosis for herpes simplex (Types 1 and 2) antibodies. The Western Blot has long been the standard test for diagnosis. It was designed to test for antib odies, but is costly and time consuming.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved very accurate type-specific blood tests to diagnose herpes. The new tests are roughly one-fifth the cost of the Western Blot and are much faster and easier to administer. One of these, the POCkit HSV2 Rapid Test by Diagnology is an accurate test for genital herpes caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). The "POC" in POCkit stands for "Point Of Care", which means the test can be done in a doctor's office and can provide results in less than 10 minutes. Meridian Diagnostics has developed a test for HSV-1. With Meridian's Premier test, the health care provider takes a blood sample from the arm and the blood is sent to the lab for results. Results could take a few days depending on how fast the lab can do the test. Another test which requires blood to be drawn and sent off for results is HerpeSelect from Focus Technologies. These tests cannot determine whether the HSV infection is oral or genital. However, since most cases of genital herpes are caused by HSV-2, a positive Type 2 result most likely indicates a genital infection."
