How do you know when your OB is over?

Recommended Posts

I Like Cake

So I just had my first ob and it is starting to finally feel normal for the most part down there. It is no longer painful to go to the bathroom. I was able to take my dog for a long walk without discomfort.

How do I know when it is completely finished and when I am no longer infectious anymore? When do I know that I can have sex again?

The itchyness and the pain has finally subsided for the most part...at least until I start thinking about it. I don't know if I am making myself itchy by thinking about it or if it is really itchy because of the herpes.

Please help...

I think technically your always going to be contagiouse unforntuantly. Your just much more contagiouse when you have visible symptoms and there are periods in which you are "shedding" when you are very contagiouse too.

This is incorrect. A person who is not on suppressive treatment for HSV-2 is only shedding 23% of the time. Treatment cuts that dramatically.

Unfortunately I don't have an answer as to when an outbreak is over specifically because I am having the same issue as you because I seem to think about it constantly.

regret

they say a week before and a week after an outbreak.i dont remeber where i read that, the longer you have the virus the more you will know when its safer.its a matter of getting to know your body and listening to it, this may take several months of having it to know

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
