Hoping to connect with others

Recommended Posts


Hi, I'm 'Lissa' and was diagnosed about 3-4 weeks ago with genital herpes. I was so devastated, embarassed, and lost when my Doctor told me this. I came home and threw out my boyfriend of 3yrs!! I felt betrayed and didn't know what to do! :madd: I have done some research online, and found out that this can be contracted and lay dormant in your system for YEARS!!! :hmmmm2: So, I felt kindof silly for immediately taking it out on my boyfriend. But at the same time, I'm trying to learn how to deal with this and connect with others who may be able to help me emotionally, and mentally.

I look forward to hearing from others...... any suggestions on how to deal with the painful outbreaks (which I have now) or how to have a positive outlook when your in so much pain.

Hi Lisa I also have it and I got it from my husband. Its only now that I am starting to resent him for giving it to me. I am so full of anger right and have been living with it for 15years. When I get my outbreaks its when the anger comes back and I just cry sometimes. Right now we are divorcing and it looks like I am now really starting to hate him for this. any way the doctor gave me Adco-Acyclovir Tropical Cream and it works for me within two to threes I am fine the blisters are gone.

      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.
