I have never had any sores like the photos i have looked at. I have no clue, The DR. said not to worry, but What do I do Now

I have so many questions, I dont know where to begin.

I wanted to end the relationship, But the Boyfriend is so supportive and said we will get through this together.Where do I begin

Herpes is not a reason to end the relationship. Would you end your relationship if your boyfried got diagnosed with terminal cancer ? I hope not. And the good news is nobody dies from cancer. You just have to make some adjustments to make transmission to your uninfected partner less likely. If your partner also has herpes, then you do not even have to take any precautions.

It should be no surprise to you that you had no symptoms because most herpes carriers are asymptomatic and not aware that they have it. It is possible that you will stay asymptomatic all your life and if so - I am happy for you...

Let us know if you have any questions,,

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
