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!

      Guinness... yummmmmmm. There is not a correlation between moderate alcohol and herpes outbreaks. Many drink more when they are stressed and it is the stress that isn't helpful and to compound the strain on the body with excess alcohol also is not helpful. For some people this combination might be enough to contribute to an outbreak. A quiet beer to reduce stress is actually pretty helpful!

      Understood however I have solve problems that involve millions of dollars these problem my team saw no solution yet sometimes I prayed and lost plenty of sleep but solved them I also learnt that we analysed too deep which caused us to over look the simple solutions

      A primary outbreak needs to happen within 2 weeks of infection, or it is no longer classified as a primary outbreak, but a recurrent. Yes absolutely, having HSV-1 takes the edge off a HSV-2 infection for a lot of people. It would seem enough for them to miss the outbreak but more likely enough not to worry about a doctors visit. In your case, yes a mild HSV-2 infection is entirely possible, quite common actually. I am not in the camp that a primary infection is asymptomatic, I believe there is nearly always something. Hence I'd suggest if you have genital HSV, it is HSV-2 and a recent infection. That's where the odds are in any event.

      Does anyone have experience with drinking beer and outbreaks? I gave up alcohol for most of this year, but whenever I have a gig, I'm normally showered with drinks and a beer or two helps ease my mind as I ease into my set. If I HAVE to, I'll give it up, but it'd be nice to have a beer or two without fear. I tend to go for dark beers like a Guinness, or a Heineken as a last resort.

      Can having HSV1 orally cause 1) HSV2 to lay dormant in your body for longer before primary outbreak and/or 2) cause a less severe "classic" HSV2 primary ob?   I have oral HSV1 and am awaiting swab and blood work for a single genital lesion.  My symptoms have not been severe and the doctor told me today that it didn't sound like I was having or had in the past a primary ob.  I believe I have genital herpes, I thought her assuming I was not having a primary outbreak was uncalled for simply based on the severity of my symptoms.  I'm interested also if having HSV1 orally (which apparently builds antibodies of some sort) would give the virus more of a chance to lie dormant, meaning this is an old infection, even if I am having my first ob.

      You might want to see a doctor sooner than in a few weeks. It might be a separate issue that may need urgent attention. If you press on the affected area and it hurts when you release, go to ER.

      My advice: stop looking at pictures online, stop thinking about whether you have it or not. You're going to get the swab test results back and life will go on, whether you are positive or not. Eat and focus on taking care of yourself. Do things that you like. There's a saying that yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift - that's why it's called the present.

      Yes, all signs point to a recent HSV-2 infection from the person you had sex with in June. Valtrex is optional. It is up to you as to whether you think you need to control an unacceptable level of outbreaks or provide additional protection to a partner who doesn't have HSV-2.

      This is so confusing all my GYN told me is....it is herpes 2 and you need to take valtrex
    • My Ria
      No there is nothing on my results that states that,  but will review them with my doctor tomorrow see if she can tell, this is my regular doctor not my GYN doctor, that ordered the tests
