does herpes cause pelvic pain?

Recommended Posts

sammiexx

i understand that when a woman gets herpes inside her vagina or on her cervix it can me accompanied by pelvic pain and discharge. The thing is i have been examined internally twice and there is nothing but i have been experiencing pelvic pain that is worse some days and better the next for about 10 days now. I think i may have had a possible exposure when i was sort of on my period. could the virus have traveled up into my cervix and into my pelvis and infected it!? i dunno if that makes any sence:S but this is the second time this has hpnd in the last month and it usually lasts for a week n half or 2 weeks!?

I got pelvic pain before, during and after my obs, and I have seen others on here experiencing the same. I think its because hs lives in the nervous system. But just to be on the safe side, check with your doctor to make sure you haven't got pelvic infection.

Can you guys describe the pelvic pain? I get what I describe as vaginal pressure...feels like something is pushing from the inside. What does your 'pain' feel like?

I had like period pain, deep within my pelvic area, and down my legs and up my spine. Does that help?

Yes, thanks. Sounds different than what I often experience. I get more a pressure. Comes and goes and seems worse when I sit.

No, I don't get sores with the pain. I am suppressive therapy and don't get sores at all actually, just pain.

Does the 'pressure' sound similar to your or do you get more of the pain like GntiNh?

Mine comes and goes. Sometimes on and off for a week, sometimes on and off for a day. When I sit for long periods of time it seems to get worse.

well i went to the doctor today and he said it was PID

becuase he did a nasty test where he put 2 fingers in me and pressed down on areas of the pelvis and there was this one spot that sent SHOOTING pain throguhtout my pelvis and back. SO i am hoping that all my symptoms are PID related and not herpes related :( it does explain A LOT ive had the blood in the urine the random bleeding in between periods the back and pelvic pain... the only think i cant explain is the genital tingling :S but i think i may be making it up as a part of anxiety cuz this tingling lasts for like a week and i never get a sore. soo weird :| this is a very confusing process

Endometriosis

I have gone through a battle for 4 months relating to pelvic pain and other symtoms. I was treated for PID, but it ended up not being that, I got an ultra sound and a CT scan that came back normal and now I have to get a laparoscopy to confirm endometriosis. (which has very similar symptoms to PID)

I did ask the specialist if the herpes could be related. Because I have not had outbreaks, they told me it was highly unlikly.

If you are still having pains, keep fighting-dont give up even if you feel like you are going crazy! The laparoscopy can also be used to help relieve the pain symtoms. I think they burn the lining or something.

      There are currently two Phase 2 clinical trials of the effect of valacyclovir (i.e. Valtrex) at the NIH and University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden respectively for the sole purpose of measuring the impact to Alzheimers of taking Valacyclovir in HSV1+ individuals. Anti-viral Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03282916?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&rank=10 Feasibility and Effects of Valaciclovir Treatment in Persons With Early Alzheimer's Disease (VALZ-Pilot) https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02997982?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&draw=2&rank=11 We should have some compelling evidence by about this time next year as the Swedish study has been going since 2016 and is set to conclude in April of next year.  The NIH study is set to conclude in 2022 but either way, on simply the mounting causal evidence, I'm going to continue taking my antivirals.

      It still sucks for those of us in our 40's. Granted you will have to deal with it a lot longer than I, but it still sucks.
