What a day....

Recommended Posts


This morning I just found out I have herpes & I really dont know how to feel. :( It has me feeling pretty down. I've never had an outbreak and theres no telling how long i've had it. The doctor prescribed me valtrex but I dont even have the motivation to go to the store yet and get it filled. Plus, it worries me to take pills. I found this website while researching herpes - hopefully I can find other people out there to help me out.

If you haven't had an outbreak then I would assume that you learned this from a blood test. I don't know much about Valtrex other than it can suppress OBs and many people that are intimate with non H people take it to help protect the other people. If you are not active in this way then maybe you don't need to take medications right now.

There are millions of people in your shoes. They never had an OB and didn't know that they had it.

Yes, your correct they took my blood and thats how I found out it was positive. Thank you for the support. I am still in shock and I feel horrible when the thoughts come into my mind. Thanks again.

Butterfly of the Moment

Hey there, I'm sorry about the diagnosis everyone on this site has had to experience. I don't believe there's a soul on here who was not down at first. I've had genital herpes for 4 months now and I'm better off now than I was the first month I've lived with the virus. I still have my moments of being down but they only last like 20 minutes or so now...haha it's a rollercoaster ride. I've read that 40-60% of people with herpes don't have symptoms/recognizable symptoms. If I were you I'd fill the prescription and keep the medicine in a safe place just in case you ever have an outbreak and need them.

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?

      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...
