Valentine's Day Ruined!

Recommended Posts

hellodolly123

Hi guys,

Just need a bit of moral support, as I'm currently experiencing an outbreak which has lasted 5 days now, and it's Valentine's Day :( I've recently started a relationship with a new guy who I told about my herpes pretty much straight away, and he's been amazing about it. I guess I just feel bad for him that I can't have sex on Valentine's Day. Anyone else in the same predicament??

Strangely enough I went to the clinic on Monday when I first had the outbreak (I've only ever been diagnosed by sight since my first outbreak almost a year ago) so they could swab me, and because of the location of my break out (it's not actually in the vagina itself, more towards my bum and thigh) the doctor said that I could cover the affected area with a plaster and still have sex without transmitting. Anyone else ever had the same advice? Still a bit wary if I'm honest.

Thanks!

Hi there, I've never received advice like this... I'm pretty sure if you have lesions you can pass it on through infected fluids? not positive though... And you're female... you could have more lesions that are not visible and/or you could be shedding. I'd be very careful with this if you don't want to pass this along... I'm very sorry about your valentines day... Maybe you could do vday sex after... when the OB clears up? He clearly seems to like you and seeing as you explained the circumstances i'm sure he will understand

Hey dolly welcome honey :wavey: I have had ghsv2 for almost 28 yrs. There have been many Anniversaries, birthdays and occasions that my husband and I have NOT been able to make love (due to surgeries and other life adversities) have you thought about just pleasing him while he holds you and you two just meld together in the beautiful moments? YOU don't have to make love to show someone exactly how much you like /love them. Romance begins with heart. :)

[uSER=39806]@Momma_Bear[/uSER] , that beautiful new baby girl is such a beautiful Valentine's Day gift from God, I'm hugging you both in my heart. :) .

Valentine's day is just another day in my home since I was hit by an automobile, all I can give is a great hand job to the man I love and a few oral pleasures, but almost 25 yrs, he knows it's Love! Plus I got :coffee: in bed and a the most beautiful smile and heart felt card (he forgot to sign, but did while I waited for my :coffee: ) See that's :love::luv2u: both. Truly Aces xo

Well, I don't like brag, . Lol. I was hit Earlier this week broadsided by a huge Van :( . Threw me into panic and anxiety, I even forgot how to change a tire (it went flat with the other drivers Damn bumper in it) and oh hell I can change a flat and oil too :) .

My husband insisted on taking me to doctors who of course put me Xanax, so I can get my Zen back. Several days before this wreck, my daughter's friend committed suicide, over h1 and how she got it (first boy, first love) . It scared me because this could have been my child. Poor girl was 18, still makes cry , even with Xanax, I feel for her mom & dad who gave her life and love,now she's gone.

Anywho I didn't tell you my girl, I didn't want you to worry bout me. Hugs and love to you, kiss my grandbaby, hold her tight. Hugs :luv2u: Aces xo

Well love, I'm brused, sore and battered, But being Spanish (tanned skin) has it's advantages, plus hubby is being really sweet. I got passion and :coffee: so my Rainbows are a fluttering. Don't need to have sexy times to show someone "hey, I'm thinking of you love-muffin" .

Im a strong woman, God is molding me for bigger trials. It's all gonna be okay. :luv2u:

Thanks for your replies guys, I know it's not the end of the world for the whole Valentine's Day thing, I was just being over dramatic! ☺️

But I am still wondering about the covering of blisters and the advice I was given at the sexual health clinic... I'm a week into my outbreak and the sores have healed over and are dry, but are still visible if you get what I mean? Any opinions would be great! Thanks x

You may still be shedding at this time, and not just from where the sores are healing either. I've read that it's most contagious up to 10 days after symptoms start and especially when there are open sores. Once the sores are healed over and dry, most of the risk is gone. I wish I had more concrete information regarding transmission from dry sores... I know there is often a suggestion of waiting a week or two after sores heal up, but I can't say that without a reference.

That's really helpful information actually, thank you so much. It's hard isn't it, because I guess every case is different so there's probably not one rule of thumb for everyone! I don't go to my GP/Doctors anymore when I have a break out because I find that they don't know enough about Herpes and aren't very helpful, but at the GUM clinic they really know their stuff and actually take a lot of the stigma out of the situation. So I do trust the GUM doctor when he says I should be okay covering them up because he's been able to examine me and see what's going on down there haha. I also asked him would I shed from other places too and he said that herpes is quite topical when it's a reoccurrence so he doesn't think I would.

I'm in the UK so I'm sure advice varies from country to country!

Unfortunately if you have genital hsv then you can shed from anywhere in the genital / boxer shorts area. So just covering where you have had your latest sores isn't going to offer 100% protection.

      It is already a hassle getting started with making it.  I end up with more questions than I can find answers for, but stumble on...  I am retired so feel like my job is (finally) taking care of myself.  I have had few health issues, generally healthy--except for the H bomb.  If i have to make liposomal 2x a week, i dont think it will be a big deal.  The big deal is getting the equipment and getting started i think.  I make kombucha, which is sort of like having a not-very-demanding pet.  I dont mind doing this kind of stuff.  But will probably keep liposomal capsules or packets on hand for times when its inconvenient to make it. I cant believe u r sucking down 6 g of AA at a time!  The most i drink with AA is 2 g at a time.  I am currently taking 4 g AA and 9 g liposomal C in caps/packets. The protocol evolves.  I am so thrilled to not have BO's that i dont care what i have to do. They ruined my life.  I am glad u r finally getting good results with your fight against H.  Have u tried drinking the AA thru a straw with the straw toward the back of your mouth to avoid teeth?  I would think baking soda and water swished around in your mouth after drinking the AA would neutralize any remaining acid.  My teeth have pretty strong enamel, so i dont worry about it (but dont do 6 g AA at a time).  If u r worried about acid erroding tooth enamel, why arent u worried about 6 g of AA at a time going down the soft tissues of your esophagus and onward?  Im not saying its wrong, just wondering.   
    • Not sure what I’ve got
      Additionally to the above and to answer you question more precisely, it had been 12 days (probably more) before I started to get itchy (I could swear the rash started as insect bites, each very distinct - I am in a hostel so there is a chance it was bedbugs). Before that it had been a week or two.  I also had been cycling intensely in 35 plus degree heat (temps were around 38 degrees today. And the spot where the rash showed up is the exacts spot where my upper thigh rubs the seat. Finally, my clothes were washed by a laundry service, and the T-shirt I was wearing that was washed in the same load had been irritating my skin.

      @Sabayou have no need to be concerned with genital herpes. Your symptoms are not those of herpes.  If you have concerns, seek out the type specific HSV testing.

      Yes, really would be an improvement not have to Carry the burden of transmission...many people are researching cures and treatments, but sadly everything takes too much time
