Each OB the same or different?

Recommended Posts


Just when I think I am getting a grip on this, I get a new OB and a new symptom... this damn disease throws me a curveball every time.

This is my fourth OB, and on day 2, low and behold - here's something new - a severe cough! (So severe my eyes water really bad and it's hard to catch my breath.) I do not have a fever but I do have fatigue and body ache (low back pain and abdominal pain.)

First, is that normal? And second, how about ya'll? Are each of your OB's pretty similar or does good ole herpes keep it interesting for you as well?

Hi, Im on my second confirmed ob and both of them have been acompanied with a cold. Im assuming that the herpes is weakening my immune system so Im getting more colds (i usually only get one a year and can often beat it with lemon ginger tea) and that the cold is weakening my system so im getting the outbreaks. This sucks. Here's some more info...

I just was diagnosed in Oct, and just had my second ob last week. My first ob was on my perinium and part way through I read about how studies showed that using lemon balm topically is very effective and that in a number of cases in the study when it was used on an initial outbreak, herpes did not come back in that same spot again. I was already on valcyclover, but had not noticed any improvement, but after putting lemon balm tincture (in an alcohol base) on with a cuetip (it stung the first time but less and less each time i used it) the swelling went down right away and it began to heal noticibly better, it also hurt less after it had stopped stinging.

My second ob showed up on my anus, which was swollen and painful, so right away started taking acyclover and I put the lemon balm on it and once again the swelling went right down within hours and the sore was healed within three days, it turned out that I also had another sore further in that I couldn't see without bearing down and doing contortionism, but that one has also almost completely healed 4 days after I found it and started putting the stuff on it. Im somewhat encouradged that it didn't come back on my perinium. From what Ive read, this sounds better than what most other people have reported, so I though Id throw it out there and see if anyone else has had or will have sucess with lemonbalm. Good luck.

I did not have symptoms of a cold for any of my previous three OB's, and did not have a cough prior to this OB either...which is why I think it's so weird. I wouldn't be so freaked out by it except that it's a really bad cough. :(

Anyway, gald you found the lemonbalm...anything that works is such a godsend, isn't it??

      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.
