Just got diagnosed with HSV-2.

Been with my partner for a few months.

After suffering a few days with a lot of discomfort and sleepless nights i decided to go to the doctor and was diagnosed straight away. My partner was unaware that he was carrying it. In a lot of shock today, keep crying and then trying to see the positive sides.

Very frustrated today, but it is nice to find a website that has so much information on it!

Haha I googled myself silly before being diagnosed, so my diagnosis is better than some of the google results I found!

He has been at work all day and I called him to tell him and he feels terrible as we were both unaware, he feels more upset that i am the one that is going through the out break and is blaming himself for it. But will see him after work and discuss it all properly. It's all just really hard to take in at the moment. I'm very much going through stages of feeling like i can cope and then just sheer panic. I think the pain and discomfort is making it A LOT harder to deal with and take in as I just want my head to feel clearer but im very feverish and headachey. Hope you are doing okay Jdk1580, and you are right it's very nice to have a place to discuss it with other people.

      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.
