got the news today

Recommended Posts


Im recovering from plastic surgery and was just treated to the news that the sore my gyno noticed on my pre surgery visit tested positive--she's making me come in for full results--dont know if its 1 or 2. So now that i've got these spectacular tits ( I got a breast lift)- i get to tell dudes that i have the big H.

Complicating this is the fact that Im seeing two guys. Have slept with both--one was a serious boyfriend over the summer who has come to realize he thinks im the one for him (im not so sure but he was a great boyfriend and I want to remain friends--he wanted kids, I didnt), the other is this super sweet guy I saw a real future with and was just waiting to have an "exclusivity" talk with. In between the summer break up and meeting this new guy I had a bit of a wild phase and went out with a swinger-we went to sex parties and had sex with lots of ppl (ALWAYS WITH CONDOMS). So I dont think I got it from either of my current partners.

Im pretty devastated. I played with fire and got burned and now that Ive calmed down and found someone great I get this.

Im shut in on bedrest--so Im even more depressed.

Does anyone here not experience frequent outbreaks? The one I had just seemed like a small rash on one side of my labia and it went away after a few days. I feel like ive had this before--maybe a few years ago--and nothing until now. Could I have had it all along? Is there a way to tell from the tests if i was only recently infected?

Find out what type it is. If you get a swab test on an active outbreak and it is positive but, at the same time, you get a negative result on a blood test, that usually indicates a new infection of recent origin. You need to get a swab test on the outbreak and a blood test now and again in about 3-4 months.

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
