My story

Recommended Posts


A bit over 2 years ago, I went out with a group of friends and didn't drink anything alcoholic. Someone who'd we just met bought us all drinks. He got me a soft drink and spiked my drink with a rape drug (as I realised afterwards). I quickly got extremely sick (couldn't stop vomiting) and he offered to take me home. What I remember from the following hours are flashes of throwing up in a taxi, unwillingly having sex with immense pain in my vagina and myself shouting "No, stop! I don't want to!". The following morning, he was still there and was nervous and apologetic. I felt weak and sick and didn't understand what had happened and he said the bartender must have spiked my drink. I understood from his facial expression that he was lying.. He had done it himself on purpose. I tried to remain calm and asked if we had had unprotected sex and he confirmed we did. He then left. I was happy to still be alive but felt the worst I'd ever felt in my life. I stayed in bed the entire week and only went out to buy a morning after pill and pregnancy test. I wasn't pregnant. I looked at my area down there using a mirror and noticed it was red and looked bruised and there were wounds. After a week of panic, pain and crying, I decided to seek help and went to the doctor for numerous checks. He could tell that a lot of force had been used as there where some tears in the tissue of my vagina and the area was red. I remember the guy having what looked like herpes near his eye and was really worried. I've been tested for all STDs over the course of 8 months using swabs and blood tests twice and was clean. After my vagina started to heal, I began to have cold sores on my index finger. The doctor didn't know what it was as it's not very common, but it turned out to be a herpetic whitlow. It hurt like hell. The whitlow returned every month around my period and reminded me of the rape every time. It was awful. However, after a year, the symptoms stopped returning and I haven't had them ever since. So for you out there with a similar condition; there is hope.

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
