Watery Discharge and lower abdominal pain--I am panicking...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have had two doctors look in my cervix in the past two weeks because I couldn't figure out where I was getting this horrible pain from and it was finally diagnosed as neuropathy. The pain stopped and started again 4 days later, but this time since I started Valtrex before it got really bad it just feels like a light "crampy" feeling. Also, I have this watery discharge that I haven't had with other outbreaks (3 others) before. It is not too much, but about 1/2 cup a day (sorry, i know that sounds gross...).

The problem is that I stupidly went to google watery discharge and it came up as cervical cancer as a cause. It also said pain that feels like menstrual cramps, which is how I could interpret this pain (or is it herpes pain!)

I am really having major panic attacks, because I feel like maybe that is what I have. But, I know the last doctor who looked in there said he was pretty sure there was no tumor or anything. I had my pap last year, but I didn't have one for two years before that so if the one last year was misread then...

I think this herpes is making me have a nervous breakdown.

I keep googling watery discharge on this sight and it seems the women have a more thick discharge.

I'm also freaked out that an outbreak came back less than 2 weeks after the last one..has this happened to anyone before?

I am so stressed and can't stop panicking..is this making my outbreaks worse?

I really appreciate any help.

Stressing is definitely going to make your outbreaks worst and more persistent! Also, when you say watery discharge, what do you mean? I've been having a lot of discharge for a couple of months now. It's milky but it does pour out like water, I could literally put a cup under there. There's no odor, just discharge. Please try not to panick, every symptom that you have is going to correlate to some ailment/illness.... Don't think you have cervical cancer!

Thanks for responding..

Hi,

Thanks for responding so fast. When I say watery, I mean it is just like water, it doesn't have that milky color or thickness. I was just taking it as part of the herpes until I read that stuff on the internet. My period is also late (I can not be pregnant) and that is freaking me out, but I will say that that could be from stress.

Just to let you know, your period/cycle can get off track due to herpes, mines have been off lately and many other girls on this forum have said the same! Discharge is normal with herpes, many females on this site have experienced different types of discharge.....

When I had my initial outbreak I definitely had the lower abdominal pain and a lot of a watery discharge. I dont know if i have had any other outbreaks for sure because I only get blisters on my cervix so i just assume i have one. Of course, if you suspect it could be something else, it never hurts to call up your doc and ask.

      I agree your post was very well written. I think I was speaking from more of a GHSV1 perspective as it relates to the oral virus so many carry and spread.   I too, before being diagnosed, was small minded and ignorat about herpes. But I believe it had to do with the way I was brought up. Looking back now I want to say it was because of my experience in college. I went to ASU, we are absolutely known for partying and STI’s. I was heavily involved in Greek life, and bascially if one person found out you had herpes your life was changed  socially and romantically. You were the girl/ guy on campus with herpes. A bunch of little 18-22 year old shits who didn’t give a flying F if you said HSV1 or HSV2. It was herpes. That’s all they were known for. Surrounding schools found out and people from your hometown found out. Maybe my generation sucks but that’s extremely sickening to witness and go through.  I now work in marketing with a bunch of people my age and older. There is a guy who disclosed and was open about herpes to a lot of us in the office and again, he was just known as the herpes guy. And no, not by me but grown adults with real jobs and education. Most likely those adults statistically had some strain of it too. But again these are my experiences. I know they are wrong now but who knows when the rest of the world will catch up.

      Some more good news on crispr! Restoring cells to an uninfected state once a virus is destroyed. https://phys.org/news/2018-09-cells-uninfected-state-virus.amp Now if only they could remove this virus from each of us and fix the effective cells would be no longer a dream!

      But don’t you have an oral HSV-1 infection? Condoms don’t protect against that?

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.
