How many days of Valtrex?

Recommended Posts

sandwitch

I just started a second OB within 2 months - unusual for me, but maybe the first one was due to an unavoidable and very heavy antibiotic course. Unfortunately I didn't catch that one in time.

Felt the tingling and immediately started Valtrex. All good, never blossomed. But is three days enough? My doctor doesn't seem too clear on what to do - my prescrip says 3 to 5 days. So... I'm not sure if I should continue (just finished the three days). I don't have that many outbreaks but I did have a nasty reminder in December of how very difficult they can make life.

All advice welcome! Thanks in advance!

Oh - I have HSV1.

I thought I felt an OB coming on just this past week. I don't usually take the Valtrex twice per day for 10 days...it seems a bit drastic. I usually take an "OB dosage" for 3 days and then I go back to suppressive. Seems to alleviate the symptoms.

Although I am making up my own rules on how to take an episodic dosage, it's best to consult a physician. Everyone is different.

I was given Valacyclovir/Valtrex by my doctor 1G twice a day for 3 days. I immediately went on daily suppressive therapy after finishing the 3 days. It has been a week now and I am still very itchy at times and have what looks like hair bumps and dry spots that I always get. I just wonder when the symptoms will go away.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
