Lost1992

So the doc thinks I have it but I've read up on it and it says the first outbreak is excruciatingly painful and it lasts about 3 weeks. It doesn't hurt too horribly bad it just sucks when I pee and I've had it since Sunday and now it feels like it's going away, for those who do have it, wat does this sound like to u? I am trying to think positive and stuff but I can't help thinkin the worst.

all around good guy

Everyone is different. Hate to tell you. For me, granted I'm a male, but my initial outbreak lasted a week and was not painful unless I bumped it. The best way to know is to get tested. If your doc just did a visual test, don't believe it. Get swabbed if you have an active outbreak, and get a blood test if you don't. IGG test is what you want. That's your best options. A visual is not accurate and not acceptable at all. Lab test is the only way. You may or may not have it judging by your symptoms. Could just be a UTI or something. Go get tested.

She swabbed and took blood. The incubation period is like 2-12 days after intro and my pain started the day after. I'm just really scared.

Hard to say, being felmale I had two minor issues that tested negative in Aug and Sept then in Oct I had the major OB, I can tell you it was the worst. Walking, sitting, standing, laying down were painful...the site of the bathroom made my cry and my entire body ached like the worst case of the flu and it went on for two weeks. My only relif was epsomsalt sits baths, and of course I went to the dr and was swab tested and it came back positive for H2, and I was given meds before the results....everyone is different I've heard some say it wasn't bad and others that felt horrible. Your test results will be the best answer and the IGG test.

      No it’s not a fact at all. How can it be a correlation if it happens no more than chance? Remember 70-80% of people using PW have herpes.

      Hello! Thanks so much for your reply. I was told (and believe) I have HSV 2. They told me that on the phone; it was confirmed through swab. I have never taken a blood test or been tested for it otherwise. I've read mixed reviews about HSV1 providing protection-- because some studies seem to allude that it does. If this is true- it makes sense because I never had chicken pox or HSV1 in my entire life so I think it explains why I caught HSV2 from a one night experience (just my luck and just my own theory) Although I still experience twitching in my body -- I feel happy that the valtrex every other day suppresses it. But I do wonder, because I'm experiencing such reduced symptoms; if my shedding is reduced too. I doubt it but just a thought.  Anyways - I can live with condoms but I don't want to.. so I'm hoping for some guidance

      This is no great surprise that HSV is pushed back in ExcisionBio's pipeline.  I'd be surprised if it isn't pushed back again. The chart they put out is painfully uninformative.  Sloppy.  And that's a red flag in and of itself. My guess is that those arrows are progress rather than efficiency, but it's not completely clear.  But if a scientific company can't get this chart right, then I really wonder what other mistakes they are making. I don't have a ton of confidence in this.  But we'll see.  I'm glad that it seems they are trying to do something.  I think CRISPR could be a solution to HSV (some kind of solution).  But I question whether it will be ExcisionBio that makes it in the end.

      Good to know.  I don't think this is a listed company, but from what I've read, they've gotten decent funding.  Around $70 million.  Most of that probably won't go to HSV research, but it's good they have some money. By comparison, ExcisionBio has raised $10 million.

      The fact that Admedus is farming this out, kind of tells you it's a long shot at best.  It's good that it hasn't been abandoned.  But I'm doubtful much will come of this.  But maybe new knowledge about what doesn't work will come, and that's always helpful.
