Can Internal Pain be Severe?

Recommended Posts



I am having severe lower pelvic pain accompanying an outbreak (I am female). I was examined by a doctor nearly a week ago and I asked him can herpes really cause this bad of pain internally and he said yes. Have any of you heard of this or experienced excruciating tenderness and pain in the pelvic region?

I am really freaking out because it has been 6 days since symptoms became severe. I thought the pain should be gone by now. The external sores are gone.

How long does pain last usually. This is my second outbreak, the first one was only external. I didn't know I could get this horrible internal pain. Has this happened to anyone else?

Thank you.

Are you taking antivirals? I had extreme nerve pain for about 2 1/2 weeks. I am hoping once my body builds up antibodies it will not be that bad in the future.

Herpes can trigger other things like yeast infections, bacterial infections and maybe even PID.

I get what I call vaginal pressure. All the dr's say it's not H related...but I haven't been able to figure out what it is. Let me know if you find out!

      I to have one outbreak after another. Never been tested but I know I have it . I would love advice on how to help with lesions on my labia.  Those hurt the worst and last the longest .  I have found if I take a pin and pop the ones on the regular skin and cover them with coconut oil salt scrub ,it drys them up and almost gone immediately and dont spread near as bad .  As I said I have lesions now and I cant seem to make them better . They hurt so bad .   I am new to this and have no idea how I got it. Been with the same person for years .

      I jus recently found out I have hsv. The first test came back negative they said it was jock itch but I had another lil spot pop up in the crease of my leg an that came back positive. I was so broken at that moment. That someone couldn’t have told me so we could have took actions to prevent me from getting it. I understand well all have it but some people’s is active an some people’s aren’t. I have some questions tho. Ever since I have been diagnosed I have been getting these lil spots poppin up on my legs knuckles an other places that itch tremendously bad idk if it’s bc I’m overly paranoid bc I’ve found out I have this or if there is something else wrong w me   I’m embarrassed to go to the doc about it this has really put me into a deep depression an I found this site hoping to get answers an support on how to deal with this I was praying that maybe this was all a bad dream but unfortunately I was wrong. Please help

      Same thing happened to me not long after having unprotected sex.  I have not tested positive for HSV, but I experience what you are in that area

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.
