How much longer with the Acyclovir?

Recommended Posts

:pI stopped taking it as per my doctor's instructions. One week later, I can feel something else beginning! So I am taking all of it again, do many of you find that you have to be on meds 24/7? How will I know when to stop taking the medicine?

IDK.. if there's a real answer to that.. I'm on supressive therapy myself.. and I suppose I could stop anytime.. and then take the meds only during an OB.. (like b4)

But.... I'm dating a person who's h-free and I find peace of mind being on meds to reduce his chance for getting the virus..

I think it's up to you really...

Yes everyone is different

Some people, like me, don't take meds when we are not dating anyone. We allow our bodies to try and regulate it.

However, like Liz, when I am dating someone I take 400mg of acyclovir an 1000mg of lysine to make sure I do not pass this along.

Good luck

JB

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
