Why is this happening?

Recommended Posts

jenn55

I'm new to this board, and am very confused. I have been living with this for 13 years now. I'd gotten to the point of only having o/b's once every couple of years, if that. I'm happily married with a 2 yr. old son. My husband does not have the virus. We are currently trying to conceive our second child, and now all of a sudden, I'm having o/b's every month. I'm not under any more stress than usual, and live a healthy lifestyle. Why is this happening all of a sudden? I do not want to give this to my husband, although he says he wouldn't care if it means we can conceive. I know I cannot go on suppressive therapy while trying to conceive. What can I do? Help!!!

Hi jenn55,

Maybe it's the fact that you are trying to conceive and possibly there is a stress factor in that which you wouldn't recognize as stress. Is that possible?

VVK

Are you having sex more often than usual during this time? That changes your body's chemistry quite a bit and could be causing problems. It could also be related to diet if you're trying something different. Is there something that changed in your diet in the last 2-3 months?

Well I have lived with this for over 6 years now and have tryed almost everything, until I found a book about Olive Leaf Extract, I used this everyday and it keeps my body healthy and my immune system strong. But if I do have a break out , I use an ointment called Lemon Balm Cream for Wise Ways herbals. This is a miracle ointment! Once you feel the tingling, itchy sensation apply directly to the affected area and usually you won't have a full outbreak and will be better the next day or if you already have a full outbreak, apply it and it takes away itchiness, pain and discomfort and usually heals faster. Try it out you can usually find it at local herbals shops or online. Good luck.

Well here's the other thing.........I'm basically just having the prodromal symptoms.......... for a week or 2 at a time each month. I'm not seeing or feeling any lesions. How weird is that? Like I said, I haven't had a real OB in years, so I don't know what's going on. My diet has not changed at all, if anything, it's better. I not having more sex than usual, or at all, because I don't want to pass it on to my husband. Can I give it to him with just prodromal symptoms?

      No it won't go up forever, I know I have been infected for a long time. Some people in here have values in the 50s. it just gives you an idea of where those numbers can go from here. The more antibodies you have the better off you are and at least you know your immune system is building those antibodies. I hope you do really well!

      The number doesn’t matter very much in terms of your experience with herpes. Your immune system has 80 elements that address HSV and your experience is related to the combined effort of these 80 elements. I’d suggest this partner is very probably infected and has been for a while.

      Obviously zero percent transmission rates can't be assured with the combination of Pritevilir and Valtrex. But I think it's safe to assume based on what we know that their effects will be cumulative and they'll work better together than they would separately, since they're halting viral replication by different methods. Pritelivir inhibits the enzyme helicase, where Valtrex inhibits the enzyme polymerase. If it were the case, for example, that Pritelivir were also going after polymerase and did a better job of halting it than Valtrex, then we would just take Pritelivir by itself with no more need for Valtrex. But that's not the case. Since the approaches of halting replication are different, a "cocktail" of the two drugs is certain to be more effective than taking just one or the other.  More on how Valtrex and Pritelivir work here: https://www.acsh.org/news/2018/06/12/herpes-vaccines-dont-work-what-about-drugs-pritelivir-page-aids-playbook-13074

      lyme disease can be sexually transmitted, keep us posted about it hope your tests are negative

      Yeah I'm pretty sure it's from him but I don't know why he would lie about being negative since we were still together and I said I was already positive. Maybe he was infected right before we met? Is higher the number better? How do the antibodies work over time? Will it continually go up forever?
