Genital Herpes and Working out

5 posts in this topic

Since i have had genital herpes - i have noticed i am having a really hard time working out.

i get tired easily.

i used to be very very atheletic. since i have had GH i get tired easily. could it be because my body is working extra hard to fight the herpes virus AND work out at the same time??? i also am more sore after my workouts than usual since ive had GH it just takes alot out of me, tho.

however, ever since i have been working out i have had less outbreaks and if i do have an outbreak, they seem shorter than normal.

anybody have the same issues?

I've recently started working out 5 days a week (for the past month), and taking the supplements from Dynamiclear.

I feel exhausted throughout my day, and was hoping that working out would give me some much needed energy. I'm still unsure if it's the summer heat that is draining me, or the H. Specifically, I am not tired whilst I work out, rather tired throughout my entire day.... I am however, finding my neck is quite a bit stiffer...

Ahhh...who knows? Am I imagining any of this? I don't know. I read things on here (sore butt, sore upper legs, etc..) regarding others symptoms...I almost feel as though they are happening to me?

Good luck, and I can't wait to see what others have to say about this!

well, i have felt uncomfortable down below when having an outbreak. the sweat burns the blisters and clothing rubs and catches on the sores. i try my best to put some vagasil down there. but mostly, on the days when it is a fresh sore, i dont do a whole lot of moving around. i just skip my workouts on those days.

i need people's replies. does anyone else have the same issues as we do in the main topic post? comments appreciated!

Admittedly, I haven't been working out lately, but when I was hitting the gym regularly, I can't say I felt any different after contracting H than before. I usually went about 4 days a week and did a normal workout, which is what I'd been doing for years prior to H. I did abstain from going while in the midst of an OB, however. I didn't want to put that extra stress on my body, and I think that's a wise choice. Better to rest up for a day or two and let your body take care of the business at hand... healing.

      when to disclose
      I married the first guy I disclosed to. He waited two years for me, no sexy times between us, and I gave him 2 years to reconsider his decision in wanting me as his partner for life, that was 26 yrs ago and we make 27 years this year. He did his research, back then just books in the library with real paper pages, internet wasn't invented back then. We also have a daughter, something I was told by doctors would most likely NOT be possible due to female troubles. I'd do it all over again. Not having internet was a blessing because he didn't get scared and get non accurate information, what he learned was what we took as truth. I've never passed my herpes Ghsv 2 to him and he's still testing negative. We just lived and he's always been grateful for being honest up front before either of us had real feelings. Hope this helps. Hugs Aces xo

      Diet
      Hi guys, I have been trying to research a diet that would help prevent future outbreaks but all the info is conflicting. (Like Citrus is really bad, no eat more citrus!) Anyone have a creditable source. Thanks!
