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.

      Hi! I was diagnosed one year and four months ago. Not a major first outbreak. Than 2,5 months later my second. Then faster a Little ob. Then is was without for almost 7 months. I really felt that was how i could handle things. Then in June i started having ob after ob. It was a very hot summer here in Holland. Also started a new relationship so more frequent sexual Activity. Not sure what coused it but those things i did feel like could trigger it.  Started acyclivir two months ago. That helps a great deal. But really dont want to Stay on Anti virals. Willing to try natural stuff but also right now feeling very happy not worrying all the time. Need to discuss again with my doctor soon.

      Oh wow that sounds mind boggling,, maybe your diet is your problem as well. Dang I thought guys had it a little easier seeing as tho you could keep your ob's dry better than a woman for it to heal..  I've never heard of Neem what's is that

      Yea I believe it may have to do with my diet i just recently cut out beef, chocolate & nuts & started eating more fish & fruits & smoothies and my symtoms are going away suprisingly. I think it was more so the chocolate for me lol smh im gonna miss it. And NO WAY your stomach!?? Like how does that happen lol that's so weird
