Just got over the crying.

Hello all, I have been recently diagnosed and am now ready to deal with the fact that I have this condition. I found out two weeks ago and have felt almost every emotion fathomable. I think what started my emotional down turn is the nonchalant attitude of my Dr. I don't know how to tell my boyfriend and I don't suspect he gave it to me as my Dr. told me I could have had it a while and confused it for something else. Trying to manage and not seem like a leper does anyone have suggestions on how to disclose to people the condition.

hey zelsgrand welcome to our site. :wavey: What is your h type? How did you test? If you tested with IGG then it has numeric value , numbers on these test. Are you on antivirals? I have ghsv2 for 24 years I take daily Valacyclovir and have only had 2 Ob's ever. Maybe you bf has this already? If you genital H and it is GHSV1 , this comes from oral sex. He may be Asymptomatic. He needs to get tested. here is link on telling partners , please read all you can. Bring him here. Tell him one in 4 woman and one in 5 men already have some form of genital herps. Also 80% of the populations has H in one form or another, but since they never properly test , they never get properly diagnosed. Here is also a book , read it and let him read it too. Your not alone hon, many have h just they never show signs. Your DR is correct however either of you could have had H for many many years but never showed signs. I stayed dormant for 23 years, just had my second ob ever. Take care and ask many questions here or in Live Chat. truly, Ace :hithere:

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
