I totally agree with you, Bearbubbles4! Thank you for posting that. Sometimes we need reminders as this can certainly bring a person down.

I had two relationships with men that ran as fast as they could when I told them. It hurt like Hell. I gave up on men all together. Then I met my boyfriend now and when I told him he was totally ok with it. we have been together for 3 years now and it has never interfered with our relationship or our sex life. besides having to use stupid condoms lol. What bothers me the most is that no one really understands what it is like to have herpes. As I'm sure you all know the medication is extremely expensive and I cannot find any Health plan coverage that will assist me with paying for it. I just got booted from Blue Cross, Which in my opinion is discrimination.

      It’s related to the estrogen/progesterone balance. You can google and find a lot of info about it.  I have the same problem.  I’ve also recently read about the link to prostaglandins and hsv, and those increase during periods, too.

      I found the love of my life ( my wife) after I contracted herpes. She is totally supportive and understanding. Never give up hope! After my first outbreak and diagnosis I was a WRECK! Depression like you wouldnt belive, but in time you will find its more of an inconvenience than anything. My best advice is to be very selective about who you want to date and tell your secret too. There is still a stigma about herpes and gossip can damage your self esteem.

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.
