Will the OB ever end?!


Recommended Posts

Hey to all out there... I began my first outbreak April 5th. About 3 days into it I couldn't handle it so I did some research online and found that a lot of people had tried Choraphor and had sucess... I was desperate so I bought it and had it shipped overnight. I have had a lot of sucess with it, but it seems like everyday there is another little ob starting. I am catching them before they can get out of control, but I just wish it would be over...

It sucks because Herpes is how I found out my boyfriend was cheating on me. Now I get to put my life on hold because of what he did... nice hu!

Anywho... I have read they can last up to six weeks... was that healing time or just the end of the ob's? I want my life back!

just out of curiosity...how do you know he was in fact cheating on you? did he tell you he was? or did you just assume because you had an outbreak he must have given this to you? just wondering because more times than not, no one in the relationship had to cheat for herpes to suddenly or finally show up....where one of the partners had been carrying it for months or years and never had any signs or symptoms so had no reason to ever think they could have possibly had it, when they in fact did, and then it showed up visibly on themselves, or a partner contracted it from them and then they were tested and learned they in fact had it. If he told you he actually cheated or you had proof, then that is different and Im sorry either way for your situation. Hope things look up for you and your outbreaks end soon.

Thanks for the reply... I had the outbreak and he told me than he had cheated on me about three months ago. He slept with an X it was supposidly a drunk momentm, but I dont have time for that. When I had the outbreak he got tested right away. He has a friend that works in a med. lab so they did it for him fast. He told me everything (or what I think is everything) on the 12th. He has also confronted the X and she told him that she has had the virus for 3 years and just never told him about it because she only had one outbreak. Anywho... it sucks but I have to worry about me.

Hello L-and-L,

sorry to hear about your situation, it's always tough to deal with a first outbreak, especially if it goes on for weeks. During the first year after my diagnosis I had almost non-stop outbreaks, as soon as one cleared up another would appear. Oddly enough, I had no outbreaks at all when I went to college but plenty when I came home to see my parents during the vacation periods. After a while it became a couple every year and now I can't remember the last time I had an outbreak.

What I'm trying to say is: it's common enough to have lots of little outbreaks in the beginning when you're stressing about it but after a while it settles down until you only get one or two per year or you stop getting outbreaks altogether. This could be down to your immune system coming to terms with it or simply a mental shift in attitude. Whatever the reason, the outbreaks will settle down.

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
