My Experience and advice

Recommended Posts


Hi every one ..

I have been diagnose with HSV2 .I have been living with this disease since one year.

When I got my first out break it was so severe that I had to go to the emergency gynecologist on duty. I could not get out of bed for two days. I had upset stomach and could not eat. Even walking was difficult task for me. I had so much pain around my legs and my hip.They gave me so many medicines to ease the pain but nothing really worked well on me. Its been a year and I learn to live with this illness. I have break outs almost every week. Few moths ago I couldn't move my waist and at the end I had to go to the physiotherapy. They told me it was all linked to hsv. Doctors told me that my immune system is low and thats why I have hard time with this illness. It is never an easy road for me. I have difficulty in my relationship.I have skin problems and I am some times very depressed about this situation. Even though I never gave up hope. I will go the new doctor next week for my immune system and try to minimize my break outs. I want to share some helpful information for new diagnoses. I hope some of these could help to ease your pain.

I live in Europe so you can not find some of these medicines in your country but please ask your doctor for help.

* Asiviral Cream and pill

*Immunace for your immune system


*Vitamin B

*Etol Fort if you have pain.

* Dulcolax for toilet no2. For the first weeks of the diagnose.

*Bepanthen after asiviral cream your skin drys up.

*Use small bag to carry with you all the time.Put your medicines,pads and creams.

* Use cotton under wear. Do not wear g-string if possible.

* Always change your underwear.

* Use thin pads like carefree. Carry them with you all the time.

* Use body soap PH 5.5

* Use hand soap anti bacterial.

* Wash you hands before and after the WC

* By a mirror with handle.

*Always use protection

* Eat healthy foods. If possible get some rest.

*See your doctor regularly and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Wish you all the best.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with this. For most people it does get better with time and hopefully it will for you too.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
