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.

      I am taking the same medication, and I have noticed that on occasion, it does come back, not as horrible as when it first began happening, but like little patches, small areas. I'd just refill my prescription, take as directed, and it'd go away. I took my last pill today, and I have been talking vitamins every day. Did not know about elderberry, I've been taking tumeric, B12, echinacea, vitamin C, lysine, cranberry and anything else that helps promote immune health as well as skin.
