    HSV1 vs HSV2 – What’s the Difference Between Oral and Genital Herpes – STD Podcast

    HSV1 vs HSV2 – What’s the Difference Between Oral and Genital Herpes – STD Podcast

    And we’re back (again)!!! After the holidays and a long-distance move, the STD Podcast is back up and running!!! Same great content, just a little different scenery – I’m still organizing my office and video motif, but overall, I couldn’t be more pleased, because The STI Project is now in Asheville, NC!!! We’re global, actually, but our office is in the mountains with a scenic and quintessential backdrop to boot. Zero complaints here, and that puts me in a perfect way to continue this advocacy work – everyone wins!







    To kick off our new series, we’re talking about HSV1 vs HSV2, or the difference between oral herpes and genital herpes.







    This podcast is being sponsored by Anti-Aging Systems. Since 1991, they have been producing articles, magazines, and conferences to promote and educate the population on how to maintain optimal health as they age. They also provide information on where to safely purchase hard to obtain medicines, nutritional supplements, and bio identical hormones, like BHT.







    BHT is a potent antioxidant and common food preservative that is also known to treat viruses including herpes. It is believed to work against the virus by potentially damaging the protective layer of the viral cell, in turn making the virus vulnerable to the immune system, which may result in preventing the virus from multiplying and causing outbreaks.







    If you want to give BHT a try, head over to Anti-Aging Systems and enter code STD at the checkout to a receive 10% discount.















    What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a Podcast







    In an effort to cater to short attention-spans (mainly, my own), we keep these podcasts between 5 and 15 minutes in length, roughly. When we have guests on the show, sometimes, they’re a little bit longer, but we know you’re busy. Consequently, we promise to always do our very best to be as concise as possible.







    Today’s Podcast







    Today’s podcast runs about 17 minutes in length, and we’re talking about why some folks think there’s a good herpes and a bad herpes, what the differences are between HSV1 and HSV2 (if any), and whether or not we should distinguish between oral herpes and genital herpes.

    Readers, listeners, and viewers have been pouring in questions, and we are here for it! Today, we had the pleasure of answering one of your anonymous questions from Tumblr about herpes transmission risk!

    Anon asks: “I just found out I was exposed to HSV2 about three months ago. I just started a new relationship a week ago and am terrified that I might have it and passed it on to my new girlfriend. We have had unprotected sex one time. What are the odds of her getting it?”

    Herpes Diagnosis – Just Diagnosed with Herpes? It’s Ok – STD Podcast

    Herpes Diagnosis – Just Diagnosed with Herpes? It’s Ok – STD Podcast

    Anonymous asks about a herpes diagnosis:

    “Jenelle, how does someone accept having an incurable infection like this? It has been about a month since I have known, and I have been nothing but depressed. I have barely been able to get out of bed most days, and I have quiet often thought about suicide.

    I just want my old life back. I feel like I can’t tell anyone about this, and I don’t know how I will be able to find someone who is accepting of this condition. I always assumed I would get married and have kids, and this just puts such a roadblock in front of all of that, and I am worried I will never have another relationship or sex ever again.

    I am going through my second outbreak, and I am just concerned I will always have this reoccur, though I have read some people stop getting outbreaks after a while. I just want to go back to enjoying life how I was, but I am not sure how to get there. I feel like I had my life setup so well to be pretty happy and carefree, and I ruined it by making one stupid decision.”

    HPV Statistics – Why Everyone Has Had an STD (HPV) – STD Podcast

    HPV Statistics – Why Everyone Has Had an STD (HPV) – STD Podcast

    Before you get your undies in a wad, we know that everyone hasn’t had an STD, but because the vast majority of all sexually active people have, we feel like it might as well be everyone.

    That’s what we’re talking about today – why the majority of all sexually active people will have HPV at some point in their lives. And since that’s only one of 30+ STIs or STDs, it’s highly likely that most everyone you know will have an STD. So, you’re not alone with your STI, if you have one now or if you have a long-term infection. It’s just that no one talks about it, so you feel alone.

    Herpes No Condom – On Sex without Condoms- STD Podcast

    Herpes No Condom – On Sex without Condoms- STD Podcast

    Welcome back to The STI Project’s STD Podcast! Do you remember our podcast from a few years ago? Probably not. I don’t really either. It’s been a long time. So let’s start again by talking about Herpes No Condom or Sex without a Condom…

    Are you excited? We are.

    This is a question we receive all of the time. Literally, all of the time. And I get it. You’re worried now that you have a long-term STI that you have to wear condoms for the rest of your life. That’s such a miserable idea – not condoms – but that once you contract an infection, which is pretty much inevitable anyways, you have to be sequestered to a certain type of protected sex forever and ever amen. Well, let us be the first to tell you, that’s not necessarily necessary.

    Today’s Podcast

    Today’s podcast runs about 12 minutes in length, and we’re talking about herpes no condoms or sex without condoms, whether or not you have herpes or another type of sexually transmitted infection and disease. Wondering if you have to wear condoms for the rest of your life? That idea is not horrible, in and of itself, but we clarify, rather quickly, that that’s not actually necessary if you have an STD.

    You’re welcome. 🙂
