From my personal experience, if the body is dealing with another issue, in your case yeast, that will weaken the immune system sufficiently to allow the HSV to manifest. I blamed HSV as the root of my problems. I now understand it shows itself when our body is weakened or dealing with something else. This is why whole body healing is so important to keep this virus in its place and inactive. I was having repeated OB's for 3yrs after many years of nothing. My problem was based on my chemical imbalance and how my body was dealing with food. Since correcting that I have been symptom free and back to my normal. A long road back but worth the journey plus I have my health and vitality back!!!! I will never look at food the same as others do!!!!
@LinksJ It's becoming quite obvious that you're ignoring the evidence and just trying to convince yourself it's ok to continue having sex. And that decision is solely based on a few uneducated doctors whose knowledge is lacking and outdated. You know this disease is commonly misdiagnosed and that 1/10 or more people do not test for it. And you also know you've had herpes symptoms shortly after a sexual encounter. 2+2=4 in my world...yours? And @WilsoInAus, who seems to believe that having multiple sexual encounters is normal and perfectly acceptable, is encouraging you to "get back out there, kiddo ". Wtf, seriously? Has everyone lost their minds?
Yes, so I do see your point. My brain is at this crossroads:
1.) Ignore doctors advice (its not like I got 1 iGG and said fuck it im believing my results, I consulted THREE physicians for confirmation, so its not like I have been as ignorant as you are implying). Start relationships with condoms, and if the time comes to move past condoms just say I had a scare and tested negative and doctors told me to just live.
2.) Disclose to all sexual partners that I may have a highly misunderstood incurable std which they are statistically already carriers of (orally). With this decision I face the possible alienation and shaming that comes along with a college social environment. I can't see the future, and people can be untrustworthy especially as situations change.
So the point is, it seems dumb to have to subject myself to extra social anxiety and risk when I have not found confirmation of an hsv infection. Is it possible I have it? Yes. Is it possible I don't? Yes. The line must be drawn somewhere. Do you get my point?
Those posts were made assuming I was going to get a Doctor's diagnosis. If I receive confirmation of a gh1 or gh2 infection, then yes, I think disclosure is important. However, after listening to multiple docs tell me otherwise, should I believe what they say, or believe my own pseudoscience?
I actually agree with Wilso here. Why should I subject myself to disclosure for an UNCONFIRMED diagnosis for a virus 60%+ of the population carriers that has been around for millenia and is only now been made an issue to sell medication.
