Traveling and herpes

Recommended Posts

FML123

Hi guys...ahh i need to stop posting but I feel like were family now so I am going to post :D

For those of y'all that dont know me...was diagnosed Friday...going into my second week of my ob...its gradually getting better thank The Lord. Not going to let it take over my life...It's only allowed to have these two weeks of my life...thats it...no more!

Anyways I am on here because I love love love to travel. I take two trips a year and starting next year I plan to take more! I want to do a grand tour of Spain in2014. Its for 2 weeks. I just dont want my herpes to misbehave. Do any of y'all travel a lot? Have any of y'all had an ob while traveling?! This is what I don't want to happen you know? Should I take meds daily? I wasn't planning on it...was just going to take my vitamins, work out, and be as hyper and happy as I usually am BUT I don't want to be on a trip and have on ob! eeek!

I'd say even if you aren't taking daily meds....to take antivirals with you if you go on a trip. (like an emergency store) So you wouldn't have to take them daily, but you would have them on hand in case an ob popped up.

Yep, and if you are worried about someone seeing your meds, you can put them in a different bottle. I keep my valacyclovir in an allergra bottle. :)

Just a note of caution. If you are stopped by customs and the drug and the bottle don't match it could cause you problems

I travelled for 3 years with H, just always made sure I had spare just in case! But my H never made a difference, bit of a bug bear a times but never got me down or homesick. I brought my meds back from the USA with no label on them so be safe but dont be 2 worried.

Happy travelling!!

      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.
