OB happening more now

Recommended Posts

soashamed30

I am so ashamed and disgusted. I have been living and dealing with herpes for 9 freaking years. I usually get only one outbreak a year. I got one in Jan this year and I had one 3 weeks ago, and now another one. I thought this would occur less as time pass. This has never happened and I am feeling so helpless right now. I really hate that I have this and I feel so ashamed. I feel like I am disgusting now and I will never get married or have kids. I'm 30 and want kids but I know it may not ever happen. How is everyone else coping with this disease?

I heard many people has herpes can have normal life with family and kids. You cannot let herpes control yourlife.Try to control it and take it as a normal.Accept it as a part of yourself. I know this is not easy,but the best way to escape it is to focus on find a partner and raise a kids.

Try get back on meds for some time it may kill your OBs - you might be in a down-phase in your life that triggers your H.....

      Almost certainly that is not herpes. There are a number of diseases that can cause your symptoms, not all of them infectious. If you haven't done so already, go see a doctor as soon as you can.

      Seems likely that you had an asymptomatic infection and now you are having very mild recurrences. Asymptomatic infection is by far the most common case, in particular for HSV1 positive people. It could be a genital reinfection with HSV1, unlikely, or most likely a new HSV2 infection, there is no way to tell without a blood test. It's been long enough for an IGG test but don't bother testing for HSV1, you can already assume you are positive and have been for most of your life. I don't know about how it is where you live, but where I live I don't need to ask any doctor to get tested, I can just go into a clinical lab and order the test for €40. If your test returns negative for HSV2, don't worry about putting her at any risk regarding HSV1, she will have the same risk from anyone else. Acyclovir cream won't do any good, you should stop it (it increases the risk of getting an acyclovir resistant strain). Otherwise, your recurrences are so mild and far apart that it isn't worth it to do any treatment for now, so don't be scared about your health, chances are it'll get better with time. AND ALWAYS WEAR A CONDOM

      Doing a little research, it seems that Amenamevir  and Pritelivir are definitely not chemically identical. How similar are these drugs really?

      I have been working out regularly after being diagnosed in may with ghsv1.  First 3 weeks were awful but haven’t had any OB, symptoms at all since.  I also haven’t been eating as healthy as I should be.  Feel like I never had it. Hope it stays this way.  I think working out helps.  Just my view so far.

      Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.
