St. John's Wort is really well studied. There is proof of SJW enhancing the regeneration of nervous tissue. There's a reason it's called a "nervine". Herpetic episodes are hot and of the nerves. SJW happens to cool the inflammation and help regenerate the nerves.
Dr.Halford has been studying HSV for 27 years and he acknowledges that herpes causes neuralgia.
Im very happy that ur disclosure went well. I was diagnosed 15 yrs ago when there was no info and Internet was just starting. They armed u with a pamphlet. I got it from a long term relationship of 14 yrs. The person I lost my virginity to. We had broken up and I just met my now ex husband. I told him and he said he didn't care because he loved me. We were married for 15 yrs. He never had ob and he won't get tested now for his future partners. I did disclose to another person and he was also fine with it. I gave him information and he loved me also. After he and I ended things I got tested and asked for everything to be done. Everything came back negative. So I thought I might have been missed diagnosed. I had such mild ob that sometimes they were just irritation. I got involved with a very nice man 8 months ago and about a week ago I thought I was having a outbreak. I freaked out. The std test came back negative. I didn't tell my bf because there was nothing to tell in the beginning because I thought I was negative. Well I told my bf that I as possibly having a outbreak and was confused and the whole story and he said he cared about me but couldn't deal with it. I didn't find out until the next day that std tests don't test for herpes. I am devastated and heart broken. I don't know if I will trust anyone again. I feel terrible guilt if I gave this to him. I hope that maybe after some time he might see that I didn't mean to break his trust. Good luck with ur disclosure to ur husband.
I was diagnosed via IGG during routine testing 2 months ago. I've never had a traditional outbreak in the sense that I've never experienced a blister or lesion. I'm about 3 weeks into my first bottle of Valtrex 500mg daily suppressant because my current boyfriend is H negative and I want to decrease transmission risk.
I can't tell if its psychological or physical, but I have been experiencing a constant burning sensation similar to a UTI/yeast infection in terms of pain. I have no idea if this is H related or not, but if it is... fuck, I'd rather have outbreaks a few times a year than this constant burning.
What do I do? Help me. My abusive ex gave this to me. He had it, and he lied to me. Didn't take any protective measures. He wanted to trap me or lower my self-esteem or make me less desirable to every man who he was convinced was going to steal me away. Toward the end of the relationship he raped me. I can't have this constant burning reminder. I will die.
Yes it is all fine, you cannot autoinnoculate yourself. No need for concerns on that. As mentioned, hundreds of people have been here with the same query but it has not happened to a single person I can recall.
can I spread it to myself if i currently dont have a cold sore and i havent had one in like a month? lets say i were to just touch my lips and then another object and then that object were to touch my private area, could i then spread it? at least what is the likelihood that ill reinfect myself, thank you for answering my initial question. ive only had coldsores for about 4 months, is that enough time to have an immune defense against autoinoculation?
I think part of what is going on for you if the stress that you are causing yourself because he wouldn't have constant headaches purely from the herpes. And it's important to note that not everyone has severe symptoms so if you pass it on to someone they might not even have any symptoms which a lot of people don't because if they have a really strong immune system and positive attitude towards it it really doesn't affect your life. And if a person has oral HSV 1 anyway they have some immunity and if they caught it they would probably have no symptoms and there are many people with HSV 1.
I have been on this website for 7 years and have met thousands of Herpsters and I know that autoinoculation is a common fear, but please believe that it really never happens.
Even if you did pass hsv2 to your mouth you will probably never have another outbreak and it is almost impossible for you to give it to someone else from that location.
You WILL be ok, please believe that.
