Hi, I'm new here. Im 22, and just had my first OB. Knew there was a possibility from my partner, but he'd never been tested, never had a break out. (his previous partner like, 2+ years ago, didnt tell him until a year in, when she had a OB. crappy right?) just tryin to figure this all out though.. he warned me up front, and we've been careful for 5 mos. but not careful enough right? first OB's suck so bad, I've had swollen lymph nodes, flu symptoms etc, the whole 9 yards. i got medicine to clear it up.. but day 3 and no improvement. anyone know how long before it'll heal up?

Hello and welcome!!

Sorry about your bad OB. First OB's are suppose to be the worse and can last up to 14 days. Your meds should start working soon! take care of yourself and get alot of rest!!

Education is a great too! and this is a wonderful site!!

Hang in there and good luck!

Hi There

A severe OB can last up to 3 weeks, i find that a warm salt bath soothes the pain and speeds recovery.

Ive heard that peroxide is very effective too.

Meds can be expensive so sometimes finding more natural ways to cope with OBs is a good idea.

Education is key to managing and coping with this virus and theres some good links to the right of this page and lots of good information on the message board...

Good luck...

      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?
