Hey PossitiveAttitude, welcome to our site :wavey: . I have ghsv2 for 24 years. Your h isn't in its propered location. It sheds less and being female and on antivirals, your chances of passing this h is less than 2%. The antivirals, I've taken for 24 years, they keep my hubby h free still, 22 years later. Take care. Hugs, Ace :)

Have you thought about antivirals? I take Valacyclovir daily, generic Valtrex, my husband and I have a daughter. Just make that baby just like any couple would. Your ghsv1 sheds less and is less contagious. Using antivirals reduces the chances if transmission even more. I had 16 different doctores, no two agreed on anything. I am Spanish, don't speak it though, but my point is my most useful doctors were and are from india. Hard to understand, but we make it work :) . Google or good old fashioned phone books . It's how I found my now doctor :gigglegiggle: . Good luck, your herps is less of a problem them if you were h2 like me. Take care good luck. Truly, Ace :hithere:

Antivirals for genital HSV-1 have not been proven to reduce shedding. If your partner has oral HSV-1 then you are extremely unlikely to transmit this to him to another location according to top Herpes expert, Terri Warren. If your partner is HSV-1 positive, there really are no precautions to be taken according to the experts. The herpes handbook written by Terri Warren is filled with information about transmission, shedding rates, and is written by an expert, not a researcher or carrier with personal experience, so this will be a very accurate tool to use along with the links posted below http://www.westoverheights.com/handbook.htm

You're probably not going to have much luck finding a doctor in NY who is solely a herpes specialist, but there are probably STD specialists in your area. Get your partner tested for HSV-1. If she has it like 60-80% of the population then you can have unprotected sex without having to worry about spreading it.

      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.
