    Advice for GHSV-1

    So I made it to month four without a visible sign of an outbreak. I had a really bad outbreak in the ending of April and was diagnosed with GHSV1. My initial outbreak took about a month to heal and left scars (a lighter pigmentation from my overall complexion on my genitals). Sadly I have been ridiculously paranoid to the point I have taken two 7 day treatments of Valtrex. More than likely it was probably just yeast infections (I get them way more than I should, even before getting hsv). I also take lysine twice a day and three times a day when I feel like an outbreak is coming on. I’ve been applying tea tree to my genitals everyday since getting diagnosed to dry out any potential outbreaks that are present that I possibly mistake for an ingrown hair. When does the worrying stop? How often have anyone on this forum with GHSV1 get outbreaks? What’s are some good tips and tricks?

    First disclosure. PRAY FOR ME

    So I am new to the herpes world. I was diagnosed with ghsv-1 on May 17th. I was dating two guys at once (one I was sexually active with and someone else). The last person I had sex with, I am pretty sure he’s the one that gave it to me. I did disclose to all of my sex partners using text free because I was too embarrassed to reveal myself. But anyway, today I disclosed to the other guy I was seeing when I found out that I was gHSV-1 positive. We have been seeing one another one to two time a week and have planned basically our whole summer out. Even though he wanted to take it slow we are most definitely sexually attracted to one another and planned on having sex somewhere along the lines. This morning I decided to disclose via text that I have ghsv-1. I gave him some fact/transmission rates and have left everything in his hands. He’s currently at work and asked if it’ll be okay for him to call me when he gets off. Let’s see how this turns out. I am prepared for the worst, but hoping for the best. I will keep you guys posted.
  3. Hi! I just want to say how happy I was to discover this site! Being diagnosed can feel so lonely and absolutely NO ONE can even begin to imagine how painful this is. I just want to share the story of how I got diagnosed about 5 months ago and I’ve have three outbreaks since. I am not 100% sure how I got it because I had only been with my current boyfriend who was a virgin before me. I had an outbreak 5 months into our relationship and it was such a hard time because it was right when a very popular tv show I was on started the season. I was secretly having the worst time while all my friends and family thought I must be so happy to be on TV for this series. Prior to dating my current boyfriend, the last time I had sex was a year and 2 months before the outbreak. The doctors always assured me it was extremely unlikely I got it from that partner so I was left in a place of confusion. I have oral herpes on my vagina and no one knows who it’s from.. and also my boyfriend got testing and was negative. I stopped questioning where I got it from cause it wouldn’t make the physical pain any less. Now I live in fear of infecting my boyfriend and I would never wish an outbreak on my worst enemy. It would hurt me so bad to give it to him. After the initial diagnosis, it took me a little more than a month to completely heal. I’m currently going through a back to back outbreak. I JUST healed from one that was lower on my vagina and now I’m experience one where I’ve never had it before. It’s on the front of my vagina, right about my lips and the outbreak dominates a wide area. This is a very uncomfortable place to have an outbreak because it’s always rubbing against something . If anyone has gotten this far in this post, I’m asking if there are ANY solutions for the pain. There isn’t much knowledge that’s easily accessible on herpes on the internet and I’m sure it’s because of the stigma behind this virus, but it can happen to anyone and is surprisingly very common. I can never find actually useful information for the pain, but I will admit that when I had my first outbreak, smoking weed helped a lot. It stopped and/or lessened the pain significantly while I was high, but I don’t want to have to get high to numb the pain. I like natural remedies as well, I don’t like taking Advil’s unless I absolutely have to and I don’t take it for this cause it didn’t work for me in the past. If anyone else has GHSV1, (I’m assuming that stands for genital HSV1 cause this site is the first time I’ve seen that) please send natural remedies that have worked in the past for you. Anything that helps with GHSV2 would help too so feel free to share too, I’m just assuming something that helps the same exact virus as me might work best. Even if no one responds, it sure as hell feels good to just write me story and feel like I belong to a group of people who suffer the same thing as me. Forums like this should be recommended at the doctor cause no one ever talks about the depression that comes with this virus. Peace and love y’all! I hope anyone else reading with a current outbreak starts to feel better soon. This shit sucks but we in this together!

    Any LESBIANS with hsv1

    This is just a chat for lesbians,as sex is a little different.
  5. Hello!! I recently just joined this forum today. I'm writing this for all my fellows whom are going through the same thing as me. It's crazy, I could barely find anything on a site that honestly helped except from hours on googling and trying everything. Before I start, here's some facts about me. I was diagnosed 2 years ago, within the 2 years I had 4 outbreaks. I'm on my 4th one as I type. ***NOTE EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT, AND YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO A DOCTOR, THESE REMEDIES HELPED FOR ME AND MAY DIFFER FROM EACH PERSON*** I've googled and googled, what some people's triggers are may not always be yours. Stress is not a key for me, like most people, I only get my OB in the summer. I still don't know what my triggers are, but what I do notice is sex is painful and that kinda gives me an idea. **BEST WAY TO SHORTEN YOUR OB** as soon as you notice or may feel like an OB is going to happen go fill up your tub with warm water, pour at least 2 handfuls of Epsom salt, I generously load my tub full. Soak in it for at least 20mins, but try for an hour. Getting out of the tub AVOID the area, pat dry Around the vagina then finish it off with your blow dryer on low and DRY , REMEMBER DO NOT TOUCH THE AREA, you will be amazed how much that speeds it up. Clothing* lose pants dresses, Keep the area well aired. Cotton undies. SLEEEPING WHILE HEALING, I know you're itchy best way to ease it is propping your bum up and have a fan pointed below, no pants on. ***medication*** I've tried it all, the one that works best for me is valtrex 1000mg twice daily, **PLEASE REMEMBER DRINK LOTS OF WATER, it will help with the stinging when you pee by far!** i would love love to answer any questions and like to help anyone. My OB last for 5 weeks, this cuts it down to 2 weeks

    HSV internal sores!!! HELP!

    Hey girls, Sooooo I'm in a bit of distress now! My Second OB is finally calming down and I'm coming to the end of my Aciclovir medication. During my OB I had so many open sores and it was unbelievably uncomfortable and painful to sit, urinate and even just wipe myself or clean myself. Now that it's calming down I'm able to check myself properly and I still have some open sores on my clitoral hood, labia minora and the opening of my vagina, the sores on my labia majora are starting to dry out, yeahhhhh!!! Yes finally. However I'm freaking out, I was cleaning myself with Tea Tree water mix and then wanted to check to see if I had open sores anywhere else so I inserted a wet Cotton bud (still too sore to insert my finger) into my vagina and oh my! Was it sore and sensitive as if I had open sores inside me, and then I started bleeding from inside and then the cotton buds were saturated in blood!! I'm freaking out now that I have some internal OB that's not healing as it's moist inside and it's not going to dry out or even experiencing some sort of infection. I'm scared my vagina is distorted and broken inside and It's still definitely too sore to go to my Dr and have her insert a speculum to check me out and I can't see what's happening inside me. I'm so worried and scared now. Has anyone ever experienced sores inside them that have bled and been really sensitive?? I really don't know what to do now. I need some reassurance otherwise I'm freaking out that I've wrecked my vagina. PLEASE HELP!! Thank you

    Prodrome: knowing our bodies

    Can some of you out there share your prodrome experience? There is so much information online regarding Prodrome but I have a feeling everybody is different. Apparently, I have had GSV2 for 5+ years but only recently found out. Had a first OB about a month ago and have been trying to tune into my body to see if I catch any herpetic sensations out there. I was experiencing some muscle spasms and soreness in the seat area, as if I rode a bicycle too long yesterday. Wondering if anyone else experiences this? What are your prodrome sensations like?
