Every stressful point in my life since getting this virus i have had an outbreak. By stress i dont just mean small stress, i mean like emotional breakups, people dying etc. General life stress doesnt cause anything in me.
I am jealous that most people are asymptomatic, but then it makes me feel better because i KNOW i have it, whereas asymptomatic sufferers may be in denial, and during sex may not know they are passing something on which could ruin someone elses life.
Thank you for your response elnino.
I don't think I get any other symptoms.Once in a very great while, I will feel a very minor itch in my butt (Sorry for the TMI but that was where my initial outbreak was) but when I feel that way, I take a shower and put some coconut oil on, and then it goes away.
I hate that alot of you have a much harder time with the virus.I'm sorry to all of you who do.
It's interesting...I've also been through extremely stressful times when I expected to have an OB but it never happened. I had a few at random times in the first 2 years after infection and then not a trace of the disease for 5 years.
I think it's just a very misunderstood and unpredictable virus. I would surmise that yes, your immune system is doing a good job controlling it. There are some who carry it for decades and never show a symptom. Actually, the majority of infected people are asymptomatic, so you are probably closer to that end of the spectrum. You're more normal than the rest of us who do have symptoms.
Do you have any other symptoms? Like prodrome, tingling, itching, etc?
