Welcome. You will get heaps of support. Whats going on with you. What type do you have and how long have you had it for. Remember we all have down days. Whats important is to pick yourself up and keep going
Sorry you had so much pain. the first 6 to 12 months you can get frequent obs. Your immune system has to fight the virus and also develops antibodies during this time. You may need ti be on suppressivw anti virals for 6 to 12 months. You need to keep healthy and avoid stress. Also do your research so you know what this means going forward. A blood test of your partner will show negative for two reasons. 1 he does not have it or 2 he has recently been infected the last 12 weeks. Has there been a recent stressful event or illness for you to bring the virus out.
Were you ever tested for hsv prior to this partner?
As time goes on and staying healthy your body suppresses the virus so dont assume you will have constant obs.
Hi all, just joined this website to hope there is someone out there In the same boat! I was diagnosed when I was 17 and have never really got over what happened. having a bad evening as many of you can probably relate to so thought I would give this site a go
Hi. Welcome your not alone. How were you diagnosed with herpes 2? Swab culture or bllod test? Did you get copies of test results? How was your fiance tested? The virus can sit dormant and then come out. But typically for women we get the outbreak within 2-14 days of being infected. are you on antiviral medications? This can help with outbreak. Everyone handles differntly. Best to get rest exetcise not much stress. Avoid foods high in argine. Coconut oil mixes with tea tree oil gives relief use topically.
I was recently diagnosed with HSV 2. I had a horrible outbreak. The symptoms were very severe. I went to my gyno and was very surprised to be diagnosed with HSV 2. I have been in a long relationship. My fiancé went and got tested via blood work as he has never had an outbreak and it came back negative. My outbreak lasted almost four weeks. It was honestly four weeks of hell. It hurt to walk and sit. Urination was pure hell...it felt like acid was being poured on my vagina each time. Well it's been almost two weeks since that outbreak has cleared up and I'm already having another one. Is this normal? That seems incredibly soon. I'm so frustrated. I'm so depressed abouted having herpes and now I'm just so depressed about back to back outbreaks.
