Recommended Posts

Soo, im brand new..this past friday i had sex with a new partner who is much bigger than usual 10 inches, we didnt use a condom and prior to this sunday i hadnt experienced any lesions or pain or intching or discharge such as this....but how could i contract herpes over the course of 2 days???? unless i had it already, im awaiting test results feeling pretty discusting to say the least people, im 20 and it seems as if life is meaningless at this point..im praying for it to be a yeast infection or anything but this virus...although i must admit joining this site and reading all that i have has brought my never ending tears to some smaller sobs...i never thought i would end up here...someone please some words of advice?? understanding?? anything....

Hello Paige09 and welcome.

I am sorry that you are in this situation. I know how difficult it is to wait and wonder about test results.

In the mean time, be kind to yourself and take care. Try to rest and eat well and if possible, keep busy. I will keep my fingers crossed that your results are negative and that things are okay. If that is not the case, this is a great site for education and support. Hang in there : )

Thanks amalia I appreciate your support, and have done some pretty extensive research these past few hours....i just cant bring myself to look in the mirror and feel good about what i see, who could love someone or want to get close to someone who admits that they have "genital herpes"...if thats the case, but if its not I most assuradly have a new found respect for people who do carry this burden. Thanks again.

Hi Paige

I dont mean to scare you but I just wanted to let you know that your test results probably want be accurate if you had this encounter on Sunday. Unlike, chlaymidia,gonnereha, and other stds that you can get accurate results within a week or two. Herpes and HIV takes atleast three to six months to build antibioties in your blood. I had unprotected sex with an old friend in June 2010. I started experiencing weird symptoms within two days. I went to the doctor about a week later and tested for everything. A few days later my results came in and everything was negative. I was relieved but remebered that it could still be a possibility my herpes and hiv was wrong. I went back to my doctor to be retested in September 2010 and everything was negative except herpes. So, I knew I had contracted the virus from the guy I had sex with in June. I would advise you to retest in a few months if your test is negative to be sure. Its good you got tested early because if everything is negative now and you test positive for herpes later then you know who gave it to you. Well keep me posted and I hope your story has a happier ending than mine...

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
