Speading up healing


Recommended Posts

I am getting married in less then a month - July 21 - and am still dealing with not only my diagnosis but also my first outbreak, which has moved from inside my vagina to right where my underware would sit(obviously haven't been wearing any) Im still taking my 7 days of Valtrex - I have like 2 days left - but I am so worried that I won't be able to have sex on my wedding night. Is there any way to speed up the healing? And Im scared to have sex EVER AGAIN bc I not only do I not want to experience the pain and agony of another ob (which I know will happen at some point!) but I don't want to give it to my soon to be husband. He says he loves me no matter what (which is obvious since he's still here with me!) and he doesn't care if he gets it. But Id feel bad knowing he got it from me...Ok I have a lot to deal with and Im sure Im not the only one with these thoughts, but I feel like I am...plus Im hiding this all from my roommate - even more stress!

best way to speed it up is to boost your immune system so you have a better body fighting it off. get some vit c, zinc, lysine, b12.

i have dreams at night that i get obs just planning the wedding. i know the stress will be my downfall- and, dont worry about the sex, most people are to tired after all the partying stress to even have sex. thats what the honeymoon is for!!! but just be carefull when you do, do it. it was pretty painfull after my first ob, to have sex.

My OB/GYN put me on Valtrex and prescribed Zovirax cream to put on the sores.

I think it's helped a lot in speeding up the healing process.

Also, my sores never spread.

I find Betadine Feminine Wash helpful too. Though I have to use latex gloves when washing down there. I'm too scared of transmitting it elsewhere.

buy hand sanitizer and lots of it. a bottle in the bedroom by the bed, bathroom, kitchen, living room! everywhere! after you wash your hands with hot sopay water use some sanitizer and your good to go!

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      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.
