Does HSV2 normally come in the same spot everytime..I only have burning/irritation on one side of my vulva/labia...nothing else. But it's one sided..only. Is this normal?

it's typical for the virus to have it's 'usual locations' for ob's but over time they may vary.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)

Mine does. Same spot everytime. A friend said the same thing. Over thirty years, she has an ob maybe once every 3 years, and she said everytime, it comes in the same place. I had asked her because I was curious just like you are now:) Also, not that I have a preference because ob's are no fun, but I would rather have one side irritated then all over!
Like the one I was with, 90percent of people who have hsv, don't know they have it. Thats a large number. Get tested. Have the talk. And most of all FORGIVE and move forward.
