After much research, I believe I have genital Herpes.  I can't get an appointment to a doctor for another few days and was wondering about how long I may have been carrying the virus.  I'm married and have been with my wife for ten years and have never cheated and I trust my wife when she says she hasn't either.  So my question is, if it is herpes, can it lay dormant for over ten years?  If not, I think I may have another problem.

Sometimes the herpes virus can lie dormant for years. Often nerves will bring on an outbreak, but in the meantime, take proper precautions not to spread. If no open sore, can still be transmitted, talk to your doctor about getting a prescription to control. As well you can still have children as long as you inform your doctor, because if you don't and have an outbreak, baby may be born with deformities so they will deliever by ceasarian

There is no maximum length of time. You can go for years without having a noticeable outbreak then have one what seems completely out of the blue. It can be triggered by stress or other things that lower your immune system

Most people do not know when they get herpes as the symptoms do not show until almost 10 days. The first or initial outbreak can be anytime between 2 to 10 days. Symptoms of the outbreak include itching or burning feeling in the genital or anal area, pain in legs, buttocks, or genital area, discharge of fluid from vagina.

The person who has been infected will also experience feeling of pressure in the abdomen, slight fever and headaches, painful or difficult urination, swollen glands in the groin area.

It is not necessary that you would have blisters on your skin during or between outbreaks. Genital herpes virus stays for life so there will be a time frame between breakouts. Some people might not know they even have herpes because there is no out break, in such a case one should be aware of the above mentioned symptoms of an outbreak and always be careful. Using a condom during sexual intercourse at all times is important.

I’m indeed very happy for the great help that Dr. Peterwise rendered to me, I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I and my husband was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS last 4 years ago, we went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, on till one faithful day , we saw a blog whereby Dr. Peterwise cured a woman who also had herpes affection,we (Me and My HUSBAND) decided to contact him which we did, he asked us to buy some items, unfailingly we sent him the money he will need in buying the items required , He caste the spell and sent me some herbs. He asked me to go for check-up after 7 days of casting the spell, Luckily for me we were tested herpes negative, now I believe all these Testimonies about him on the internet, he is truly a great man, if you are going through the same problem and you need help you can contact the great Herbalist([email protected]) or call +2349051208634

First herpes outbreak can last a couple of weeks, longer for others. Usually, you feel completely normal again down there after 2-3 weeks. Recurrent outbreaks resolve sooner. Mystery no-name lube sounds scary, lol!

When I got Herpes, it was from someone who pretended to be my friend for three years. He knew he had it and he really didn't give a crap about if I got it or not. He flat out lied to me and told me he had had a clean std test. When I turned up with it a week later, he told me to go to the doctor and ask them for Valtrex and herpes treatment. "You will be fine." He told me. Needless to say, I didn't have a lot of faith in humanity or men left after that happened to me. When I found this I was too scared to date or to seek out a relationship. I had told several people about my new found curse and had mixed reactions. This site gave me the confidence and understanding I needed to be happy.
