Hi, will my symptons/contagiousness decrease over time?

Recommended Posts

sir

Hello, I've heard that the first year is the worst for OBs.

After the horror of my initial one, I had nothing for almost six months and then noticed a couple of painless bumps.

This is when I got checked out and told I had GSV.

This second outbreak was caused by the stress I was facing at the time and went after a week. Having just noticed another small bump about a week later I want to know will these symtoms calm down in time.. or get more constant.

Once my body gets used to the virus will it be less likely to return/spread to others?

Thanks for reading.

Hey sir welcome to our site :wavey: . How did you test? If your genital herps is h2, that initial outbreak, for me was Hell, and it is usually the worst. If your ghsv is type h1 , usually from oral sex, you may never have another outbreak. That h1 likes the facial/oral location. It sheds less and is less contagious. If you are female, it is also harder for us females to pass herps. If it is ghsv2. Like me, it prefers the genital location and lies in the Spinal Ganglia Nerves system located at base of spine, it will still be harder to pass. This h spreads anywhere in the , what we call boxer shorts region. And after the first year is less contagious. I'm ghsv2 for 25 years now. I take daily supressive therapy, Valacyclovir, and I'm married 22 years to a non h man. I also have a daughter. I have only had two outbreaks ever, the 2nd just about a year ago. It was stressed induced and I was in the process of having to find a new doctor. Also my only child was leaving for college, empty nest syndrome, LOL.. If you properly tested whether it was blood or culture, that test should show numeric valves, numbers for each type h. Like h1 or h2.and what type test like Igm or Igg, if you were tested by blood.

To answer your question, Yes! Over time we become less contagious and taking antivirals and Vit.b12, all these help to keep shedding down, supress outbreaks and the Vit. gives energy, relieves stresses and promotes nerves health. Also taking L-Lysine helps to keep h from replicating in the body. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read all you can. Feel free to ask any questions. Take care hon. Truly, 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.
