Just a few questions.

Did any one remain with the person who infected them with herpes? I could be crazy or not, not sure anymore. Here's my story: My husband have me herpes about 8 yrs ago. My initial ob was so awful I wanted to die. I had never been in so much constant pain and discomfort in my life (and I have kids). It lasted about 8 or 9 weeks, I was misdiagnosed 3 times before going to the er out of frustration and found out what it was. I was completely devastated I had no idea how I contracted it since I had been with my husband over 11 yrs at that point. Found out he was having an affair. We separated for almost two yrs. I didn't have another ob for 7 yrs but in the last yr I have them constantly, as soon as on clears a few days later I get the tingling and itching again then a full rash. It is very uncomfortable, Valtrex hasn't worked or any other meds. I try to do remedies I have found on this site and get some relief. I just soooo stressed out and depressed, I haven't told anyone because I'm embarrassed. What makes matters worse is I SUFFER through OB's all the time and he has never had one. He won't get tested but one of her relatives told me about her and she had a cold sore ob. I don't know what to do to stop or lessen the obs but I'm coming to the end of my rope. Can't handle having sex but the desire is still there, Is there anyone out there that understands? Just so tired of feeling so alone in this.:-?

Hey MSLADY , welcome to our family :) . NO, I divorced my rat bastard first husband because he lied and denied. I am now married to a non H man for 22 years and we have daughter also non H like her father. Have you tried Lysine and Vitamin B12 complex? I have stayed on antivirals & Vit.b12 for the past 25 years. Not Lysine just antivirals & Vit.B12. This vitamin promotes good nerves health, gives us energies (as woman we need this with kids) and relieves stresses. you are not alone anymore with this h. We are here for you support and educations on herpes. Here is a book , it can answer some of your questions. I want you to know also Herpes can lay dormant for decades. Mine stayed Asymptomatic or Dormant for 23 YEARS.. No outbreaks or sores just prodromes like tingles and those are from Stresses which are my biggest triggers. Message me and if I can help. Also please feel free to ask any questions you may have here in the forums, many wonderful supportive people here can help you understand your h. May I ask how were you tested and what type is your herps ? Just because it's in the genital area doesn't mean it is h2. H1 is usually oral / facial area. H2 is usually genital area, as that is their homes. BUT they can switch places and when they do they become less frequent in outbreaks , H1 sheds less and has fewer outbreaks is less contagious and being female its harder for us to pass the herps. Just because your husband didn't show signs doesn't mean he couldn't have had it for years. Even you could have had it for years, remember I stayed dormant over two decades :) . It may be better for him to test. It will give you a baseline. The Igg Herpeselect Elisa is the best test for diagnosing herps. It also shows numerical values too. Please relax and settle in here. Many will come by and give you their knowledge and support too. Take care , hugs Ace :)

Thank you Ace. I was tested via a swab and visually. I will try the b12 vits where would I get lysine. I am just so frustrated with this whole thing right now. It helps to know that I am not a lone. Thanks

MSLady,

I bought Lysine supplements at Walmart but I'm a complete newbie (just found out two days ago) so maybe there is someplace where they are better or not. As of now I'm still in a lot of pain but am thinking I'll go pick up some B12 per Ace's advice above as it doesn't seem to be getting better after 5 Valtrex pills (so far) plus the other things.

Yes, I get Lysine and Vit.b12 complex sublingual , its liquid vit.b with many other b's in it. Lysine will help to keep h from replicating in the body. Vit.b12 complex will give energies, relieve stresses and it promotes.good nerves health. This genital herps lives in the spinal Ganglia Nervous system, base of spine, it helps me with prodromes and combined with my antivirals , it's my key to staying outbreak free. I believe it helps my moods too. Just.my opinion. You can get these supplements and vitamin at Walmart or Walgreens. 1250mg of Lysine, twice a day.and 1500mcg of vitamin b12 complex twice a day. The liquid has a dropper in it. The pills just follow 1500mcg, twice a day..Hope this helps . :).hugs, Ace

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Thank you for all this info. This is very encouraging.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
