OB's different this time

Recommended Posts


Just wondering if anyone else experiences this? My OBs are usually very painful, last for ages and hurt like heck. I am currently experiencing the mildest one I have ever had, fingers crossed. I say fingers crossed because sometimes they start out really mild, half go away and then kick back in with avengeance.

This one is barely there, in a much smaller area than usual and also the tell tale signs were more painful, with the raised area and tingling in my butt cheek. They bothered me a lot, the actual OB has been fine. Is that normal? Is it just because my body is getting mroe used to it now?

hi nosila,

I think i get very similar symptoms to you. My first OB was very painful, but since then I have not had any pain with outbreaks, just the tingling sensation and a small raised area which sometimes scabs over.

I think I have read somewhere that our bodies can better at fighting the virus the longer we have it? not sure if anyone else can confirm that?

Your body will develop antibodies and within time you can eventually stop/barely ever have OBs. Within years and years.

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
