Recommended Posts

Hey...when the heck do you know when your first OB is over? or when ur not contagious? I'm into week 3 and everything LOOKS good but i still get itchy and achy and tired....

also - do you think since i currently have my period and i dont think another OB happened, that maybe thats NOT one of my triggers? I sure hope not.

I am on suppressive.

This site recomments you wait 7 days

since your last symptom before having sex.

If you are not dating anyone and your outbreaks aren't bad you may consider not taking meds. that will allow your body to take care of it without the crutch of meds.

Good luck!

Positive... I found in my first year with this (I've had it 3+ now) that yes, my periods were a trigger. Basically, if you break it down, when you go on your period your body changes hormonally... which means chemically.... to a certain extent. Because of this, the virus, which is new to your body, can find it easier to pop out... since your body is new to fighting this.

After the 1st year or so my body started to settle down and started to get this under control. Stress is still a big trigger for me, but my period isn't anymore.

Thanks...I'm still really confused...I guess what I'm experiencing is normal...I've almost had this a month now, and im all healed up and looking really good....SLIGHTEST bit of red if you look REALLY close - but all in all, its ll healed up. But like today, in jeans after walking all day, really uncomfortable. Just kinda felt like chaffing or a slight burn. And my one gland is still a little swollen.

3 weeks into this mess I got my period, AFTER my sores had all healed, and it doesnt seem like this period was a trigger (and it was a bad cramps bleeding month) so I'm PRAYING that means it WONT be a trigger in the future. I am on suppressive meds and birth control....

I just hope it starts to feel 100% soon....I have a feeling its not going to come back. Maybe I'm just trying to be positive, but I'm really healthy. And I eat really well. And Ive NEVER EVER before this had any issues "down there". So I just feel like I'm going to will it away.

QUESTION THO: If I think I'm having another OB - do I just start taking the acyclovir 3 times a day for 5 days instead of the 2 a day suppressive? Do I not even bother asking my Dr.?

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
