By some sort of magic or insane bad luck my girlfriend and I simultaneously contracted HSV2 over the Christmas break and neither of us have any clue how it could have happened. She is 18 and I took her virginity 3 months ago. I am 20 and I have been with her and another girl when I was 16 till I was 18. That girl had never even been kissed before I dated her and I am 100 percent positive neither girl cheated on me. How could I have possibly contracted this disease??? :evil:

She was tested by planned parenthood and the culture came back positive. I only had very minor sores, none of them open and once her culture came back positive I presumed that was also what I had experienced.

was her culture hsv+ or specifically hsv1 or hsv2? if you aren't sure, have her call and ask if it was typed or not.

odds are it's hsv1 then and not hsv2.

if she just had the lesion culture done within the last week, have her call the clinic and ask them to call the lab they use to get it typed. They typically keep the culture for a week or so in case there are issues like this. the clinic she goes to needs to be following cdc recommendations and getting all cultures typed.

You will need to go and have a type specific herpes igg blood test done too on yourself and also get your symptoms checked out though it sounds too late to culture yours.

The only sores either of us experienced were on erogenous zones. no where else. Could this still be hsv 1?

I had her call Planned Parenthood and the results from the lab were hsv 2 positive. not simply hsv positive.

You need to get tested then to know your own status.

Yes you can have hsv1 genitally. It's pretty common.
