Recommended Posts

oic

so i wake up, jog happily to my washroom, start the bath, doing this stupid little happy dance. I jump in the bathtub, and lace that shit with soap, while shaving my cooch, trying to feeeel fresh again, then i get all pretty for thanksgiving dinner.

''IM THANKFUL MY FIRST OB IS DONE!''

i yelled to myself in my thoughts.

then, i leave to walk to the restaurant.

itch. itch. irritation. tingle tingle tingle.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU ------

If I wake up tomorrow with another OB because I shaved, I'm going to jump infront of a train. this is stupid.

The first time I shaved, I got a rash, not a herpes outbreak, but a rash. Never had that happen before! I have an electric razor that is designed for "below the belt" shaving, and that seems to not irritate things as much as a regular razor does. Although shave gel stings a little!

Hopefully if it does anything, OIC, it just causes some irritation or an itchy rash and not a full out H outbreak! It is a trial and error thing. If you find something that causes an outbreak, try something else. Frustrating, I know, but everyone is different, so what works for one person may not work for another.

so this is def. herpes then, i barely shaved and i have this terrible rash and its swollen and itchy, will this stop after a few years? i think this would be the worst thing about having herpes, i will never feel clean unless im shaved, if i dont shave the hair irritates me too :(

I feel the same way! If I don't shave, it seems irritated, but if I shave, it is irritated for a day or two. I definitely don't shave as often as I used to, and don't even attempt it if I am already irritated down there! I am hoping this will improve with time though!

afraid to grab the razor

I give you credit for trying to shave! I feel soooo gross not shaving, but since having a first OB in Sept, I have been afraid to try shaving. Even though I haven't had an OB since that initial one healed 3 weeks ago, I still feel different, afraid to shave and possibly spread it.

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
