And the results are in....

Recommended Posts

I was first diagnosed with a swab in August but my blood test was negative then so I got my bloodwork done again last week. I just got the results today and I am positive for BOTH 1 and 2. I was really hoping for type 1 so the outbreaks would be less as well as the stigma. To top things off, after my last pap smear, it showed I also have HPV. I'm not so worried about that one but it just adds to the pile of bullshit. I feel like a walking STD.

Now my question is, I have a prescription for Acyclovir but haven't started it yet because I wanted to get my results first. My gyn told me it wasn't recommended for type 1 suppression. I have only had 1 outbreak and that was more than 3 months ago. I have been taking 1000mg of Lysine a day....don't know if that's what's keeping the OB's away or if it's just coincidence. I really hate the idea of taking meds every day but I am kind of seeing someone and want to take every precaution to protect him(he is aware of the H). Is suppressive therapy worth it if you don't have frequent outbreaks? I'm kind of torn.

i use suppressive therapy with acyclovir but didn't really start doing so until a month ago and that's because i was getting an outbreak at least once a month. since you are sexually active, it may be best to be on some form of suppressive therapy for his sake. but at the same time, i would give it some time and see if there is a pattern to your outbreaks. the lysine is probably helping a lot. sorry not too great of an answer!

      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?
