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.

      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?
