vaginal bleeding common with genital herpes

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I was worried a little while ago when I went to the restroom and I wondered how my vagina was healing because I'm so dry down there. I have no discharge whatsoever and I tried to insert my finger to see if it was feeling back to normal and I could barely get it inside and after I pulled it out there was blood on my finger. I'm really worried because I had my period on Nov 8th a day after I went to the ER for a blister I saw on my vagina and a constant burning when I went pee and they diaganosed me with genital herpes and the the test came back as HSV 1 but now I have so more bleeding so is this normal? How long does it take to completely heal after the first outbreak? It will be 14 days tomorrow since I went to the ER but 16 days since the first blister appeared. Thanks for any advice! Also I am taking acyclovir once a day now. I did take it 5 x's a day for 10 days after getting diagnosed.

sometimes an outbreak can last up to 3 weeks or longer depending on espcially if you have internally it may take longer to heal due to moisture...increase your lysine intake 1000 mga day for a few days til it heals up.

Hi,

have you tried the oil of oregano, it really works well, whenever my period is finish i just add a few drops in some clean water put the solution in a douche bottle and wash my vagina (Internally) normall my obs come after my period and they usually begin with a discharge after my period. This solution stops the discharge and in most cases prevent an ob. Do some research on the oil of oregano

Thanks for the tips everybody! I think it is just going to take longer to heal since I had some blisters internally. I will keep track of it and if it last longer than 6 weeks I will call the doctor. Thanks again!

      Hi Felina, Do you have vaginal discharge with your itching? I thought I had a bad yeast infection when I was first diagnosed. I took both the oral and monistat cream. The cream made the inside of my vagina burn loke crazy. I came to the belief that it wasn't yeast but a symptom of the H. The vaginal cortisone cream works really well for my itching and burning symptoms. Vagisil makes one too but get the cream for sensitive skin. I tested positive for HSV 2 back in early August. I had two weeks of pure hell with the same time symptoms you're talking about. They seemed to go away during my period but have started up some again. Not as bad. I take Valtrex daily. 500 mgs a day. I was on 500 mgs twice a day for 10 days and it did help. I agree what most say that the first year is going to be rough. Our body has been exposed toa virus and the way it reacts is probably different for everyone. Hang in there. You'll get some relief.

      What medication were you getting for your candida? I've been on Valtrex for 6 weeks, so I am starting to doubt my symptoms are H related at this point.

      Ive been diagnosed 11 years. This year I seem to be popping more meds than ever. Im not sure if its the virus or something else now.  Frustrating

      Only remember cold sores after the genital thing so possible same time. Weird that something showed up on the thigh though. Currently Im just having sex with condoms and if it comes to it I will say docs told me I was negative for everything. GH1 really isnt that bad, but our symptoms are presenting strangely and we arent producing ABs (or the tests just suck). Testing for the autoantibodies for thyroid. I am waiting 3 mos to test and again and then perhaps go on thyroid homrone.

      I just left my doctors and found another before she told me I will work with you and your symptoms.  She did and she understands that i'm going through and lot but she takes my symptoms seriously.  I don't waste my time anymore with doctors who just think i'm nuts.

      Thank you. I hope he takes me seriously. He treated me like a hysterical hypochondriac.

      I had a yeast infection that kept coming back.  I went to see an infectious disease specialist who tested it and she found out it was a rare type of yeast.  Candida Galbrata.  Who knew.  I finally went on the right medicine.  Make sure they find out what type before they give you medication.

      Thank you. I had some swabs done last Thursday and I have an appointment on the 1st. Hoping the pain is caused by something easily fixable like BV or yeast.

      Just wanted to say thank you on behalf of all women for being such a sweetheart to this woman during this difficult situation. You are a true gentleman and I hope karma rewards you tenfold for this. You said it initially wasn't painful, did it ever become so?

      It's in the same class but not the same drug. I believe it's called Amenamevir. The problem is, is that the Japanese Company-Maruho (I think that's company name), isn't releasing efficacy of drug or any further details i.e. release date, etc etc. But I think most infected folks are curious of results especially since Pritelivir seemed to have so much potential.
