Hey divemad. I gave you some tips in your other post. I know you confused, its normal to be at first. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read this and read here too in our lovely herpes library. It's located to the right side of the front forum page. If you have ever had sexy times or oral sex, you could have h for many years and just not know it. My h stayed dormant for 23 years, just had 2nd outbreak about a year ago. I'm married to a non h man for almost as many, we have a daughter too. Your still you! Still that same person who loves to dive and explore nature at its best. After this pain has gone, your mindset will help you get back to the things you enjoy. Take care honey. Hugs, Ace :)

Just like you I found out this week that I was exposed to h. Needless to say I too have been shocked,confused,angry,very sad "lots of crying". I have been in my first week and feel so sick chills, pain, nausea you name it. I too am trying to stay positive after many days of being sad. I just read something about betadine to ease the pain. Not sure if this works but I read it on a medical site. I'm here if you need to talk...

Hi welcome Goddess1, yes I saw this too. Also bactine spray, its for wounds care, it has a numbing agent and boy does it make peeing a lot easier. Take care 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.
