I got diagnosed around two months ago now, after three years of symptoms and several doctors misdiagnosing me I finally went to see a sexual health specialist and she took one look, even knew on the phone from the symptoms I described pretty much, SO frustrating :madd:

So I have started Acilivor supression and that seems to be kind of working

I am sure you are all sick of people coming on here and having a moan but FML seriously!

This is really affecting my sex life and has been for years and it just plain sucks!

Who would have thought it would happen to you eh

so anyway I have herpes in my ass and for the last three or four years I just thought it was a fissure or something and tried all these medications, even had two operations

Life!!! y u mock meeeeeeee

for the week after I was diagnosed I was TERRORFIED I was going to get herpes transferred to my eye because the DR had talked about it, I felt so dirty and alone all the feelings we all get I guess, I have come to terms with it now and am just getting on with life, but if I dont take my medication right on que I start getting symptoms coming back, the ol tingling feelings etc, anyone else experience this? I think my body must be a bit wussy when fighting this infection because I get really bad OB and often, before the meds it would be atleast once a month

Anyway just realised I missed my pill taking time by 2 hours so I had better go take two

Thanks for reading!

Hey c0nz, welcome . Hon your not dirty and your definitely not alone :) . I was married when my ex hubby gave me h :( . I thought.that being married somehow protected me, I was naive. But today you have this wonderful support site and plenty of good information here. Back 24.years ago I had nothing and noone. The antivirals will reduce the shedding and supress the outbreaks. I have taken them for 24 years, just had second outbreak about a year ago. I've only had two ever, I had vag & anus herps. H can breakout anywhere in that boxer shorts area. May I ask how you tested? Was it typed, like h1 or h2 ? I'm sorry you have to be here, but very happy you found us. Take care. Hugs, Truly Ace :hithere:

Hi Ace,

Thanks so much for your kind words :D

I was tested via a swab of a sore, VERY PAINFUL! she said she would have to really scrape at it with a cotton bud and boy she was not kidding! She also preformed a routine Sexual health check while I was there including blood test, when they called back for my herpes result I asked what type it was and they said type two

I had to turn around and go back to work after that but I will admit I was a bit numb!

      I think you're right about 'having a good flow', i.e. splitting the dosage throughout the day to make most use of it. You're also right about potential strain on your body for overdoses, however there is conflicting information about this based on studies I've read. There are several of studies indicating benefits of high doses of vitamin C for fighting viral diseases. I've done quite a bit of research on this as in the past I used to suffer from common colds, often over one week in duration and up to 6 times a year. With Zinc and Vitamin C I've managed to reduce these to once a year, and their duration to under 6 days. Some of the studies used IV administration of Vitamin C, which is of course different to taking it orally, but some of them had success with high oral doses as well:  Dr. Harri Hemilä from the University of Helsinki, Finland, analyzed the findings of two randomized trials each of which investigated the effects of two vitamin C doses on the duration of the common cold. The first trial administered 3 g/day vitamin C to two study groups, 6 g/day to a third group, and the fourth group was administered a placebo. Compared with the placebo group the 6 g/day dose shortened colds by 17%, twice as much as the 3 g/day doses did. The second trial administered 4 g/day and 8 g/day vitamin C, and placebo to different groups, but only on the first day of the cold. Compared with the placebo group, the 8 g/day dose shortened colds by 19%, twice as much as the 4 g/day dose did. https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/4/339/htm High dose IV Vitamin C has been shown to be effective against viral infections such as the common cold rhinovirus (Hemila and Herman,1995); avian virus H1N1 (Ely,2007;) Chikungunya (Gonzalez et al. 2014; Marcial-Vega et al,2015); Zika (Gonzalez et al 2016) and influenza (Zarubaeva et al.2017). Also oral supplementation with vitamin C (doses over 3g) appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections (Carr and Maggini, 2017). https://isom.ca/article/high-dose-vitamin-c-influenza-case-report/ We had a case in which a patient with herpes zoster did not respond to conventional therapy so we attempted to administer intravenous infusion of vitamin C which resulted in an immediate reduction in the pain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3111558/

      Hey @Antoinette63 you do absolutely nothing. If infected with HSV-2, then the initial outbreak would have occurred within days of the infections. Symptoms after 4 months are not really likely to have been from that episode.  If she does have a recent infection of herpes, then it will be from her new boyfriend!

      Hang on @viralfrog let’s be rational here. The male body can only usefully metabolise 100mg of vitamin C a day. Any excess does not have any known impact on the body as it doesn’t actually get to where you might be thinking it goes. It goes out via your kidneys, potentially causing toxic effects. The real trick with vitamin C is making sure there is a good flow moving through your intestines such that your body can metabolise the full 100mg easily. To achieve this, you are much better off taking a tablet of about 250mg with each meal. Anything more than 2g a day of vitamin C is not only useless but commences a strain process on your body that may include outcomes including kidney stones.

      Hang on, no one is talking about testing again for herpes. We are suggesting an analysis of the serum in the blisters that will give clues as to the cause.

      Currently I'm taking my Ascorbic acid at two doses throughout the day, 6g at lunch and 6g at dinner. It's already a hassle as I have to dilute it in water, rinse my mouth with coconut oil and then I take a shot of it from a shot glass and rinse my mouth quickly with water after. Even with the coconut oil, I'm worried for my teeth.  I was going to order a capsule filler machine and some gelatin capsules, but realised it will cost me almost the same than just ordering 1g vitamin tablets from iHerb. Also, this means I still have to be eating 12 capsules per day which is not ideal. I wonder if I could figure out some DIY method to be able to squeeze 3-5g of the Ascorbic acid into some coating to be able to swallow it without risking my teeth.  I had a look at liposomal C too, but what put me off was the quick expiration date if making it yourself. Unless I'm wrong, you have to do a new batch like twice a week.
