Hi everyone... I was tested for herpes via culture of a blister last wk wednesday and the results came in this tuesday and i have been dealing with it ever since. The first day i found out i cried til my eyes swelled up. I was scared confused and hurt. I was also so concerned of how my bf wud take it. I had called him over and asked him to jus hold me and hug me repeatedly. Thru the niht i wud cry n cry and he wud jus hold me. At this point he didnt know watvwas wrong and told me that i could tell him anything. So as the nite ended i decided thatbthe best thing i cud do was tell him. His reaction was silence and shock. Yesterday wednesday we barely spoke until the nite wen i mustered the courage to call him. He told me that we were no longer together but he wud b there for me and he cared about me and i mean a lot to him but he needed space and time as he is angry and hurt and he feels for me.... He says as of now we cant be together and he doesnt kno if we will ever be back together. Of course the break up pains me. Now how did i get herpes? First off i had an outbreak some months ago but thought nothing of it as i t hought i cut myself during shaving. When it came bck last wk i panicked and callee my gyn who performed a culture. I told her that i had never had an outbreak until recently in the same time frame as i was sexually intimate with my now ex bf. Now the chances that he gave me the herpes virus is 60% maybe even 75%as he slept with a random chick he met in a club a couple months bck, 7 to be exact. Before us i never had an outbreak. The other 40% or 25% cud b frm a previous partner. He hasnt had any outbreaks as im sure he wud have notified me. I have been reading a lot of articles and i am goin to do a blood test tdy.. Strqngely i hqve been trying to do blood work since last wk but none seems available so.im goin to a different place forthat. This mornong i noticed wat seems to b a blister or sore in my mouth in the cheek area. Im hoping its jus a canker sore and not a herpes sore. Im unaware of which type of herpes i have or if the culture is even accurate. Mybsores dont seems to look like those online nor do they crust up and scab. They just heal.. Someone help plz

My blisters have never looked like the things you see online either. And the ones shown online all seem to be the worst case scenario ones where they've probably got infected.

There's no saying if you caught it off your most recent partner or the one before that because it can take a while to show up and your ex ex partner may have it and not know or even never have an outbreak.

The best advice I can give is get your blood tests done and find out exactly what's going on.

Good luck x

      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.
