What is this pain im getting all the time!!!! Please help :(:(:(:

Recommended Posts



Im currently waiting to attend a consultant next wk. 2 years ago i was diagnosed with HSV1 in the genitals, broke out in blisters, agony etc.

Since then ive never had blisters however i do suffer from pains down both legs, in my butt and sometimes genitals. Its not sharp, more dull and worse when im sitting down. This pain can last from 2 days to just over a week each time.

Ive been to my doctor who cant say whether it is or isnt part of the H so hence the referal to a consultant.

Im on no medication at all, however i am willing to try.

Ive had 2 sexual encounters since i was diagnosed, both of which were rough, quick and we used no lube. After each i had this pain, lasting longer when it was more rough etc, and less severe the more gentle we were.

My main problem is having sex, as im scared im going to get this every time i do anything! To be honest as i said im on no med, use no lube, and i dont have frequent sex so i reckon most of these together dont help! I think if i did try medication etc and got my body used to being sexually active again it may calm down.

Does anyone else suffer this aswell? And if so, what makes it better? Im based in the UK btw!

The pain is ALWAYS after sex, but i do get it when im stressed or due my period.

Thanks for any help/advice!!

Hi there!

The dull pains you describe are quite common especially before an o/b - I get them as well and sometimes the gland in my groin swells and really aches. I reckon its worth you trying to get some meds - I've been on Acyclovir for 10 months and no ob's!!

I also found that sex like you describe was guaranteed to trigger an ob - its best to use some lube if poss - it might help but who knows with this cunning little virus!!

      Hi everyone  I have Ghsv1. 3 months I receive frequent outbreaks. There are no lesion redness, burning and itching as just a rash. I know that herpes trigger opportunistic infections. How do I know this mushroom or that herpes ?  Do you have frequent outbreaks is living Ghsv1? I feel alone

      I have been positive for about 8 months and I’ve generally been open to friends and family about my status. I’ve tried a brief stint with dating other H+ folks from Postive Singles and it hasn’t really worked out.  There’s this guy who works security at my gym and he’s been chatting me up a lot recently. I like him and I haven’t made any moves but I get the vibe he’s getting ready to ask me out. It sucks because he’s obviously interested and I would love to go out on a date with him.  I’ve never had to disclose to a new person before and I’m really really really dreading this. I’m dreading it to the point where Im wondering if I should turn him down if he does ask me. I hate this. You know I could handle the symptoms of herpes, the only thing that sucks about this thing is that it’s contagious. I have zero problem taking drugs everyday, but valtrex is so fucking inadequate with providing me any reassurance of reducing transmission.  I’m so frustrated. Just give me some better fucking drugs so I can feel confident again.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.
