Recommended Posts

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.

      Hi! I was diagnosed one year and four months ago. Not a major first outbreak. Than 2,5 months later my second. Then faster a Little ob. Then is was without for almost 7 months. I really felt that was how i could handle things. Then in June i started having ob after ob. It was a very hot summer here in Holland. Also started a new relationship so more frequent sexual Activity. Not sure what coused it but those things i did feel like could trigger it.  Started acyclivir two months ago. That helps a great deal. But really dont want to Stay on Anti virals. Willing to try natural stuff but also right now feeling very happy not worrying all the time. Need to discuss again with my doctor soon.

      Oh wow that sounds mind boggling,, maybe your diet is your problem as well. Dang I thought guys had it a little easier seeing as tho you could keep your ob's dry better than a woman for it to heal..  I've never heard of Neem what's is that

      Yea I believe it may have to do with my diet i just recently cut out beef, chocolate & nuts & started eating more fish & fruits & smoothies and my symtoms are going away suprisingly. I think it was more so the chocolate for me lol smh im gonna miss it. And NO WAY your stomach!?? Like how does that happen lol that's so weird
