Questions about outbreak signs

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed 8 months ago with genital herpes... I never had an outbreak that i was aware, i was diagnosed through blood test results. I was in a relationship for 8 years with a man i thought i was going to marry wheni got my results that had completely left me devastated and then to put the cherry on the cupcake when i told him about the results its like he already knew and was waiting for me to come to him! Anyway needless to say we are no longer together and i am in a relationship with an amazing man who knows everything about my past and accepts me for who i am and all my flaws... U just dont know how he melts my heart! But now i think after all this time im having an outbreak but i dont know for sure cause i dont see anything!

These are my symptoms:

Horrible head ache that comes and goes

lower back pain more to my left side

tingling in my vaginal area but no sores

horrible pelvic pain

my body aches every other day, some days i feel great others not so good

tingling feeling in my body

i have no abnormal discharge, no sores, no pain while using the rest room, no irregular bleeding! I just feel weird!

I made a appt to see my gyn but i cant get in until next week! My #1 concern is the pelvic pain! Does herpes cause pain in your pelvic area? Its almost like i have period cramps... Its not constant, it come and goes! Please help me!

It is possible that the pelvic pain could be related to an internal out break. Herpes doesn't just affect the outer gentailia all the time, sometimes it affects you internally too.

When you see your gyno ask them about it and let them know what you're experiencing!

And also, a lot of people have very mild outbreaks that they don't even notice - so that may be why you haven't had one that you've noticed or it could just be mostly internal!

Good luck! And it's so nice to hear when someone has found a wonderful accepting person!! :) Congrats!

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
