Recommended Posts

TMI...I am currently on my period and all I can think about is this stupid little virus. I am itching, tingling and in constant pain. Darn it, I am hoping it is not a damn OB waiting occur. I AM REALLY SICK OF THIS SHYT AND WISH I WAS NEVER CURSED WITH IT!!!!!!!! GOSH.

I just recently been diagnosed and I am wondering if other ladies experience the same symptoms during their period. Does this mean I will have an outbreak every month?????????

I am really not happy this morning. O Lord please help me. It seems like the Valtrex is not helping. What should I do???? Any suggestions.

Hey there, I've had two outbreaks since catching the virus and both were at the same time as my period. I've read other posts on here about your period bringing on an outbreak. Double the fun.

I am expecting my first period since first finding out about H and am not looking forward to it! Its bad enough that I get HORRIBLE, almost unbearable cramps for 1-2 days, and at least 1 day of very heavy bleeding! I even got on the birth control where you only get your period 4 times a year to avoid going through that agony every month! Now it may possibly cause an outbreak? Seriously? As if it wasn't bad enough before H! It sucks being a woman!

I really need to get a handle on this illness. I found out last month that I had HSV2 after getting over my period. So, does this mean I will have an outbreak every month of my damn life. I CANT HANDLE THIS. I am on Valtrex and I dont know if it is even working. I just want to scream. I am having OB after OB. So freakin unfair.

Besides I am in school and had two exams this week. Talk about stress. I need to get a handle on this ASAP!!!! It is controlling my life.

I've never had a full on second outbreak, but I had tingling/itching in the area where my primary OB occurred, twice. Both times were that time of the month . I am wondering if this is "asymptomatic" shedding, as I am getting the prodrome but no signs of an OB.

Most people's bodies get better at fighting the virus over time, so it's possible this will stop happening. Think of ways you can make your immune system stronger. Do you work out? Take vitamin C?

Now 18, i do take vitc and a mulitvitamin. I do work out but not as much lately. School has been kind of rough with tests. But, yes I need to get a routine going. I am so hating this. I dont know which stage I am in the grieving process...maybe it is denial. I still cant believe I have this and it is still difficult to accept it. I need to accept it and move on. I know this could happen to anyone, and that someone is me. Why would someone knowingly infect someone with such a thing. I hating life right about now. I have all this aches and pains and nerve pains. GOSHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
