Question about outbreaks and UTIs

Recommended Posts

I am having my first outbreak in many months. I am glad it has been so long since my last one....

However, I am also having a urinary tract infection, a very painful one. I have seen a number of people who have posted here say they had a UTI at the same time as their herpes outbreak.

What is the relationship between herpes and UTIs? I asked the doctor I saw yesterday for the UTI and she just nodded her head and said that the UTI was because the herpes lowered my immune system and so the UTI happened. But...I have had many outbreaks without a UTI, most of them in fact. And I have had a number of UTIs that were not associated with a herpes outbreak.

There does seem to be a strong association between the two, though. It's a real bad combination, UTI and GH outbreak.

Anyone know anything about this?

Did you get tested for a UTI? I know from my first OB I thought I had a UTI and really it was an outbreak in my UT. Maybe that is what is causing your discomfort?

Feel better soon! :)

How did you find out it was an outbreak in the urinary tract? Tests? I wondered if it could be that. Is that common? What is the treatment for that?

      No I didn't ever have hsv 1 before (was tested in spring). This was a recent exposure. The ex had an outbreak on his genitalia so I got tested. No symptoms but positive for hsv 1 now so how do I know if it's cold sores or gHSV1

      If you've never had any symptom I expect you prob have HSV1 from childhood and not genitally.

      I have hsv1, i got off of birth control about  9 months ago, so i dont think this can still be hormonal acne. Why is this happening too meee. Its just getting worse overtime and ive had this happening for a good 3 weeks now just getting worse and worse. They are mostly on my cheek area, but i will get occasional single pimples around hairline or forehead . This is the worst its been! Anyone else have had this issue ? Its gross

      yeah, I got HSV from him and HPV . I'm pretty sure the HPV is from him too but no way to be 100%. I have never tested positive for that before though. The coincidence is too much.   How to trust somebody?? I really don't need any more gifts.

      Since he has given your H then I advise you to make sure that  he's not giving New gift this time  ( another lovely virus) otherwise have sex as you like but not with ob's. I say that because it happened with so many people and I don't want to mane any. Thanks

      I'm so confused! My IgM was positive yesterday and today I found out the IgG test came back that I am negative for HSV2 but showed evidence of IgG for HSV 1 (she said I needed to retest in 3 months).  I've never had ANY symptoms ever. So do I tell people I have genital herpes or do I tell them I just have cold sores virus?  I have no way of know if I have it on my mouth or below! What do I do???
