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!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
