Yes and no: Testing positive for hsv (herpes simplex virus) means that you have acquired an infection which is classified as a sexually transmitted disease (std). This is not related to HIV or cervical cancer; however, these others are caused by other sexually transmitted viruses (hiv and hpv). There is no "cure" for herpes. There are medicines which can help reduce the symptoms and the time of a flare up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I found out I had genital herpes & I'm goin to a different clinic cause of a work related injury If I got blood work can I possibly I b infected hiv?
Unfortunately,: "herpes is forever" is all too true. On a brighter note, it can be successfully suppressed with anti-viral drugs, either with each flare, if infrequent, or with long-term suppression. Since herpes lesions compromise the integrity of skin/mucous membranes, it puts you at greater risk for acquiring hiv. Thus, always use protection & practice safe sex. See pcp for rx for anti-viral meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Usually nothing: Hiv usually doesn't have any symptoms. Some people report a flu like illness (fevers, chills, body aches) when we think they first got infected but most don't.

A couple ways: First, the behaviors that put people at risk for STIs increase the risk for both HIV and HSV (herpes simplex). If you have sex with them you may be exposed to both infections. Second, if you have an open sore from herpes it makes it more likely that if you get exposed to HIV it will be able to infect you through the open sore. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Misinformation: I'm really sorry that somebody told you this total untruth. Genital herpes is groups of painful blisters. HIV is a systemic disease that in the acute phase is often the worst 'flu you've ever had. Further, if you have any concern that you have contracted HIV, you owe it to yourself and all those who love you in any way to get yourself tested. Herpes labs are less reliable. Do the right thing. ...Read more
