Mild HSV2?

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone,

I am new here and just found out that I have HSV2 last month. My first symtoms included the following: itching at he lower part of my vaginal opening (Not crazy itching but some itching), around day 4 of this itching I placed a mirror to take a better look and noticed two very small fine cuts in that area (the cuts did'nt hurt with contact of soap or urine). The cuts were so small they were not easy to look at. I immediately began researching online and to my surprise, herpies can present itself in tiny lessions. I immediately went to my doc and she swabbed the lessions since I read this is where its easiest to diagnose. I had some blood work done as well. My doc gave me some HSV2 medicine and I took some of the pills but the lessions went away very soon about 4 days after they appeared and so did the itching in about a total of 2 weeks. The symptoms were never out of control, it was apparent something was wrong since I really pay attention to my health. I live a healthy life, I work out and take supplements (I'm big on aminoacid intake), so ofcourse I just started Lysine.

I know who infected me, my husband did. We were separated about 3 yrs. and decided to work out our marriage about a year ago. We have been together since and are only sexually active with eachother. He has an idea how he became infected (Drugs, alcohol, party party). Anyways, the same time I had these signs he had symptoms too. His symptoms were the same but more irritating from what he has shared with me. It seems it has cleared up and then comes back. I dont know if its related to him working 20 hrs. a day and not resting, being stressed out, drinks alcohol on the weekends and smokes cigarettes all day long. I don't know.

Well I just wanted to share my story and I'm at least happy that its not as severe and that I don't have anything else.

      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
