    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?
  2. Looks like there is now a site that's in English selling Amenalief (amenamevir) for the rock bottom price of about $95.43 USD a day. ($668 shipped for 14 x 200mg pills at 400mg/ daily dose). Amenalief is one of the helicase primase-inhibitor class of drugs that has been around for the better part of a couple decades, but has just recently made it to market in Japan. Pritelivir is also a member of this drug class. For those that have less than stellar results from current antivirals, helicase primase-inhibitors are likely to offer a relatively impressive improvement in quality of life assuming you can afford the ongoign cost of using them suppressively (needless to say they are NOT a cure). As a side note, the FDA blocked further testing of Pritelivir back in 2013, so in case you're wondering why you cannot buy this class of drugs as a consumer at your local pharmacy for a more reasonable price using your prescription drug plan, you owe a large thanks to the FDA for your being forced to weight your physical and emotional HSV-related damages against the cost of this treatment. If anyone out there is independently wealthy, willing to order an antiviral drug from a Japanese company, and would be so kind as to report back with their experiences taking Amenalief suppressively, I'm sure many of your fellow sufferers would be extremely thankful! https://www.mimaki-family-japan.com/item/detail?item_prefix=TF&item_code=705711&item_branch=001

    Valacyclovir in Germany?

    Does anyone know of a doctor in Germany (preferebly Berlin) who would prescribe Valacyclovir? The dermatologists I went to all refused because they said it was too expensive and they were afraid of getting in trouble with the health insurances. I need it because Acyclovir is giving me diarrhea.
  5. Hiya, I just wanted to firstly say how relieved I am that I found this community. The work you all have put in over the years is so impressive and you have collectively created an incredible resource. THANK YOU! I was wondering if I could reach out to all of you and ask for some help. I have been recently diagnosed with gHSV-2 but my first OB was two years ago. Each OB after the initial one took place while I was travelling and I could never get to a Dr in time for a definitive test. In a a way I am now relieved because at least I know with certainty what I have. In the last two years I have had at least 12-15 OBs. From what I have been reading on this forum my OBs are mild and not too painful. Having said that they are a major cause of stress for me. They usually occur between the head of my penis and the foreskin but recently I have started developing OBs on my upper thigh/below my butt. Now that you have read my longwinded backstory I will cut to the chase ;-) I am scheduled to see my Dr in London to talk about the choices I have going forward. I am seriously considering a suppression therapy because even though my OBs are "mild" and painless they do last for many weeks. With so many outbreaks a year I am hoping that a suppression therapy will minimise the stress I go through and make the OBs less frequent. What do you think is the "best" suppression therapy available out there? I usually take Acyclovir during OBs and that seems to be working well. I just wanted to hear your thoughts on a possible long term suppression therapy and the side effects it might have. Is there a preferred and proven medication I should discuss with my Dr? I apologise in advance for the probably redundant post and than you in advance for reading this and pointing me in the right direction on the forums. Cheers James.
  6. I have HSV2 and am currently taking 500mgs of Valacyclovir daily. My partner does not have Herpes. He is aware of my status and we have always had sex using condoms. I recently went to a new ob/gyn and when discussing my current birth control she told me it was pretty safe for me and my partner not to use condoms if I am using daily suppressive therapy. Is this true? I feel like it would be so great for him to not have to use condoms, but I also want to keep him safe. Is the risk of him contracting it so low as to be negligible?

    Unusual Valacyclovir Script

    Hey All, So I picked up a script today for Valacyclovir 500mg (generic brand Vaclovir) 30 in the box, to have on hand in case of OBs. On both the script and the printed label thing from the pharmacy, it says TWO tablets, THREE times daily. Now, I've only had this periodic style of Valacyclovir once, but from memory it was ONE Tablet, TWICE a day... Ie, Morning and Night. I had Famciclovir once which was ONE tablet THREE times a day. Anyway, I just wanted to hear from the hive as per what to do. My logical brain tells me that the doctor may have printed me some kind of script for a suppressive therapy or even for an 'initial' infection. Since I'll just be using them WHEN I have an OB (and I guess occasionally the day before and day of getting laid- if on the ODD chance that I do manage to tee something up.... hahaha) I should just take them as per usual, ONE in the morning, and ONE at night, for three days. Thats a six tablet course, with five 'repeats' considering there are 30 in the box. Yeahh?? Cheers, CD
