I have been living with herpes for 17yrs?

I am a 39yr old immunocompromised female. I have been living with herpes for 17yrs. I had been having recurrent episodes of herpes and a doctor prescribed 400mg of acyclovir per day for 6 months for suppression. Over the years, before taking the medication, I have noticed that I normally get the recurrent outbreaks between a few days before my menstrual period to a few days after. If I were to take the 400mg per day of acyclovir during only this period in which I normally get outbreaks to cut down on the cost of buying the acyclovir, would this still be an effective treatment method, and more importantly, would this intermittent taking of acyclovir increase the chances of or cause the HPV to become resistant to the acyclovir?

I was just told by my doctor that I might have herpes?

I was just told by my doctor that I might have herpes. I talked to my mother about it today to find out she and my father both had the virus before I was born. Is it possible I was born with the virus and didn’t show any signs when I was born because she didn’t have any signs of an outbreak.

I want to know about HIV transmission and if a PEP would not be needed?

Hi I am a gay male and I hooked up with a guy last night which is not something I normally do as im usually very careful and talk about sexual health with partners before sex and have always used protection during anal sex. I was messing around with this guy, mainly masturbating each other and grinding on each other and a little bit of oral but then as he was rubbing himself against me it started to feel like he was trying to push himself into me and I pushed him away as he wasn’t wearing a condom and that is definitely not something I would do with someone I had just hooked up with. But the fact that he seemed willing to do that got me worried and I spoke with him today and asked him about it and he said he was just playing with the idea of it and that he wouldn’t actually have done it. Im pretty sure there was no penetration, as like I said I pushed him away, but maybe there could be a chance the very tip went a tiny bit in – im not really sure. Although I think I would have been aware, its just I start to doubt myself and there was a lot of lube on his penis from masturbating him due to the fact that he is circumcised. I asked him about his sexual health and if he gets checked regularly and uses condoms. I said that if he thinks he has put himself at risk and hasn’t been tested then I would consider taking pep although what we did was low risk so I would hope he would be honest in response to that. He said that he last got tested 6 months ago and has always used protection since then and that him and a guy were having unprotected sex but only with each other and they had both been tested and that this was around a year ago. Assuming that information is true, along with the activities we were doing and from what I know about HIV transmission I would say that the risk of transmission is very low and PEP would not be needed, but I wanted to also get the advice of a medical professional.

I am having recurrent ulcers in my mouth and tongue, should I get a STD test?

Recurrent Mouth ulcers in the past

Hi, 2 months ago I started having recurrent ulcers in my mouth and tongue (1-2 at the same time-normal size-after 4,5 days were disappearing). I had full blood count and everything was fine – for 10 days no ulcers again. After my holidays then I started having again ulcers in my mouth and tongue and my GP gave me Corsodyl mouthwash which was perfect – the 2 ulcers I had disappeared and never again appeared. I have no ulcers at all for 3-4 weeks now but I’m just very anxious cause in internet it says a lot of serious illnesses are causing ulcers and that is why I’m a bit concerned. I have also quit smoking on January (that might be a reason why?) and I was having exams as well which means I was stressed. One GP told me if I’d like to have more blood tests (std related test) but I haven’t. What do you think?

I recently got a implant done, but during my healing / antibiotics stage – my tongue started to appear like I have oral thrush?

I recently got a implant done, but during my healing / antibiotics stage – my tongue started to appear like I have oral thrush (white hair – very sticky, and can be scrubbed off with no pain). Red dots all around an large bumps at the back of my tongue. This is no where else in my mouth but my tongue.
I was prescribed Nystatin, but it did not work. I was recently prescribed another mouthwash similar to nystatin but nothing is changing with my mouth. There is no pain anywhere else, minus the odd muscle pains in the legs (started about a week ago).
I also just noticed that I have white scars on penis. I’m not 100% sure when this started, but I noticed it in the last couple days. There is no pain and the scars are about 1mm in dia and are on the shaft of the penis and balls.
Is there something more that I should be worried about?

I believe I contracted Herpes from tanning machine at gym?

I am a 59 year old, extremely healthy female. In 2009 I had a blood panel that came up completely normal and clear for STDs. I am completely not sexually active and have been since 2008, yet a recent blood panel showed that I have Herpes!! How can this be?! I have racked my brain and the only thing my gentiles have touched outside of my home is the side of the tanning machine at my gym as I laid down in it. The bed activity stays busy! It is cleaned between users but not adequately and seldom on the edges where you have to initially sit to enter; there are often smears on the shiny surface. New users enter the bed within 5 minutes of the last so it is still very warm. Is it possible that this is where I contracted Herpes? I am mortified at having this as I never been very active sexually absolutely know I haven’t since 2008. How can this be?
