Hello, new to the site. I just found out I have GH a few months ago. I am 26 yrs old, no kids or dating but scared as hell. I just want to meet people in my situation and learn as much as I can. I really need the support, I really don't want to tell my family or friends, I rather gain support from people who have been through this and maybe get the courage to talk to my family. Thanks, hope to talk to you guys soon!

hey there i havent told my family either just a couple friends and boyfriend.. i have had ghsv1 for 3 years now. and at first it was horrible my emotions were high already and to get an outbreak was even more difficult to manage my emotions. just know it gets better with time it did for me. i seek therapy for various reasons which always helps.. imanage my stress as well.. by taking supplements and jud relaxing...boosting my immune system also helps again using supplements. i am an avid weight lifter so i always keep that in my life... i have two jos and go to school... and i have only had 2 out breaks in two years.. so yes it takes some time to get overthe mental part of having this virus,, but just know its mostly harmless very common, and 80% of population has this virus.. chickenpox mono and coldsores are all forms of herpes to..

Hey LThomas, welcome to our family. I do understand how you feel. I have ghsv2 for 25 years and I am female I do have a daughter now. I no longer get outbreaks. Back then I was newly married and 26 when I got my genital type 2 from then husband. He lied and denied and we divorced, no kids.. Now I have been married for 22 years and my now husband is still non H man. We also have a non H daughter too. You can have whatever life you choose. Do not give your herps power or controls over what you will or can have. I don't give my herps control over my marriage. We still have love making and oral pleasures too. The chances of transmissions are very low. I am female, harder for us to pass the h. I take antivirals daily, reduce shedding & supress the outbreaks. and My Vit.B12 complex sublingual keeps my prodromes controlled, I don't get as bad as many do. The Vitamin helps promote good nerves health and provides energy and relieves stresses. Don't sweat the small things and try to relax. You can and will have whatever you desire if you choose to. Take care honey. Hugs, Ace :hithere:

Wow, im so glad to hear your story. I was concerned about when i finally wanted to have a family about passing this virus to my child. I was starting to feel like i wasnt going to be able to have a family or marriage. I do have an ex boyfriend i really care about and were trying to work on things and now that i have found out i have herpes im scared to tell him and he's going to be mad. I just thought it was weird because he has a child by another and i dont think she has the virus, him, or the mother of his child that i know of. I guess im still trying to figure out a way to tell him and he still want to be with me.

      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.
