Re: Does This Sound Like A First "Outbreak"

I had a severe outbreak almost a year after I would have contracted hsv 2. It was so bad I couldn't walk properly and it was on my right butt cheek. I am having a less severe outbreak there again right now, but it's still pretty bad. When I have outbreaks around my vulva etc I can't even tell. It might burn to pee and seem a bit raw, but I don't have blisters or sores even. I've tested positive in both areas during different outbreaks. So yeah, I'm sure anything is possible. Our bodies are all so very different.

The virus comes out differently in everyone, but it is possible that you have had this for a while. I am assuming you had a culture done that turned up positive, I suggest that you also get the IgG herpes type specific blood test, if that comes out negative then you know it was a recent infection within the past 4 months. I mean either way your partner should be tested also.
