suppressive therapy?

Recommended Posts

julie38

hi, i'm 19 and was diagnosed with genital herpes 2 weeks ago. I have a doctors appointment on friday where i plan to ask if he will put me on suppressive treatment as i feel this will help me alot to get over the initial shock and upset i'm feeling and be able to cope with life abit better till i come to terms with it. Do you think he would prescribe it to me or do i have to be having frequent outbreaks for him to put me on it?

I can only tell you what the doctor at my clinic told me.

I have HSV1, but only cold sores. Recently I think I might of spread HSV1 to my genitals. She told me, although the cold sore was right on my lip, that she wont prescribe me anything until I have a break out down there. She said cold sores in general arent STD's so I could get my general practioner to get me some suppressive stuff, but she cant until if and when I get an ob down there.

Most drs are only too willing to give a prescription for meds for GHSV 2. Mine literally forced the prescription into my hand, even though I told him I didn't want them. A year later, I threw the unused prescription away. I still have the free 30 day supply of Valtrex samples he gave me. That was 2 years ago. From what I've read on other peoples' posts, you're not going to have any problem getting meds from your dr.

      Yes, just have sex wearing clothes and a condom, also don't kiss. No disclosure needed.

      Have sex  with at least one of you wearing clothes + a condom  next time, if you really want to protect him.

      All negative, Except for hepatitis B which is something you're vaccinated (They give you antibodies) against in the military. Before, I go through the trouble of re cropping another damn picture for you. I'd like to ask what your response will be if I show you the results and they're all negative?

      Universities receive most of their  funding from Pharma companies. Scientific studies aren't cheap, Pharmaceutical companies aren't going to fund research on food supplements when there's no pay off for them. It's naive to  think big businesses would fund research that'd directly decrease profit.  Then there's the possibility of the pharmaceutical companies bribing the government agencies from genuine health research, to keep themselves in business. https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/04/big-pharma-pays-universities-for-most-medical-research-in-u-s-today/   Also, No one outside of the research community has the resources/contacts to prove they're cured. Even if they scored a negative on a western blot test/IGg, scrutinizers would just claim the virus was dormant or they never had it at all. Other than blood test, There is no easily accessible method to determine whether or not the virus is completely eradicated from your body.
