Should I Began Treatment Now Or Wait?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was disgnosed with HSV2 about 3 months ago with my first outbreak. Doctor prescribed me Acyclovir, after 2 weeks it was cleared. I no longer take Acyclovir. I have been on the internet ever since searching for a CURE to which I am starting to realize, there is no cure. I since then cleanse my colon just to clean out my insides. I read on here how many of you are taking daily meds. My question is should I get on some type of daily meds now or should I wait for my second OB to see how frequent are my OBs????

see how good your immune system is, if ure only having 3 - 4 outbreaks a year id leave it..

i only get that many, but I take anti virals to try to cut transmission rates so my GF (hopefully) dont catch it...

up to you mate, see what the others think.

My girlfriend tested negative for hsv2 after I tested possitive and I think she plans on leaving me. I don't blame her. I am just preparing myself for my second ob......I wish I was a millionaire so I could fund a cure research.

Things have not been the same since I tested possitive after my first OB but we are trying to work on things. Yes, I have been distant & very moody.

i can completely understand being distant and moody. it is not easy dealing with and accepting diagnosis of this virus. i too wonder if i should ask my doc for antiviral meds i take lots of vitamins and herbs to assist and do not have a bf so figured i probably do not need an antiviral???

TBF - when i first got it i was the same, but i knew i had to pull myself together and be strong, if i cant see past this, hows my partner ment to?

Gutted is so right,i think we can all relate to being moody and pains in the backsides lol

This is for life,we have got to accept it and move on, you cant let it consume you.

Just try and see it as a real bad inconvienience and go and enjoy life once again.

Guted, this freaking virus is so, so much more mental than anything else. After my first ob, I did the colon cleansing, I now go to the gym. I feel great but in the back of my mind I know I have this virus. I also have high blood pressure which I know can kill me but I don't even think about the high blood pressure. HSV cannot kill me but I worry about it the most............I just hope they come up with a cure or a vaccine in my lifetime...The thing that sucks the most, I had a freaking condom on. Through out school I was thaught that condoms are saviors, they never told me you can still catch an STD with a condom on....

agreed mate - condoms or no condoms, the only way to have safe sex to be tested prior to sex, but even that aint 100% and peeps have had false negatives.....

yep its def more mental then anything, quite franky, its embarissing and feels like it makes me feel like i look dirty and tainted...

took me a while to get over, well i havent actually got over it, but i dont let it bother me anymore

i have man periods occassionally, thats all.... me and my GF actually laff about it now.. its not funny, but helps us deal with it as a couple.. (shes non HSV)

TBH - i wouldnt be so in love and happy if i was being moody all the time, i mean let be honest ere, who wants a mard-arse boyfriend or girlfriend...

i dont, and i wouldnt expect my GF to put up with me if i was..

it def aint her fault ive got this, so why blame her (i know i aint and your arnt) by being moody with her?

shes my savoiur from this afflication, and i salute her for it....

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
