How to be the safest?


Recommended Posts

Okay, So I lost the last guy that I really liked because I wasnt prepared with information on how to be the safest we can. The information I have gotten from multiple sites is that with suppressive drugs and condoms you can have 95% chance of not transmitting the disease to a non H partner.(is that right?) So I have seen bits and pieces on different things (ozonated olive oil, female condoms,saran wrap??) that may provide added protection. My question is I know there are many discordant couples out there. What are you doing to best protect yourselves from asymptomatic transmission?? I would appreciate any ideas out there.

there is alot of things you can do to protect yourselves. Me and my boyfriend have an amazing sexual relationship and the H is almost a non issue. I have choosen not to go on supressive therepy. I rarely have outbreaks and I do not want to take a pill twice a day. the medication can be hard on your kidneys and my immune system does good job keeping the h in check, I don't think I need the supressive therapy and I don't want the virus to become used to the medication and my body to not be as able to fight it naturally. I take a daily multiple vitamin, a product called system well which supports a strong immune system, 1500mgs of lysine with other immune supporting herbs daily. I also blended my own herbal tea which I and my partner drink daily. it has a good quality echinachea, cats claw, olive leaf, and mellissa, which are all good for treating herpes. the best defense is a healthy immune system. eat well, get pleanty of rest and enough exercise. a healthy attitude helps too. I think it is key that my partner is healthy. He takes very good care of himself and that counts the most I think. Also we use condoms every time and keep our selfs clean. good old soap and water. another thing I am trying is coconut oil. You can take it internally or try lauricidin, which is the compound in it that kills the herpes virus. I have heard great things about it. It is available from the manufacturer online. We also use the coconut oil in other ways. It is a great massage oil and also edible. The boyfriend likes it too...hint hint :wink: there are tons of natural remedies, just do you research and do the best that you can, it is really all any of us can do. good luck.

Thank you so much for the reply. I am taking L lysine and so I will probably be trying some of the others you mentioned as well. I love tea so that is a plus! I wanted to say congratulations on finding such a great guy.(I read your good news post) I especially like what you said about being glad all the other jerks didnt work out to make room for this one. Its hard to think that way when your in that situation but then I read a post like yours and I am not only happy for you because I understand your situation but It makes me realize I will meet the perfect one! Thankyou!

      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!
