Newly diagnosed


Recommended Posts

Just found out I had HSV2 a couple of weeks ago. My husband and I had been separated for 4 months and I trusted the wrong guy. Feeling devastated and scared. Weirdest and best thing about it my husband came back and wants our marriage to work after I told him what happened. He said the last 4 months were awful and he realized he didn't want to lose me. So happy but confused about what HSV2 means for my future and ours

If your blood was positive you may have had the virus for quite some time, thus your husband may already have it. Did you have a bad outbreak or just a single lesion?

Welcome did they prescribe you any medication to control the out break? I have had HSV for 20 years and my wife of 11 years has never had an OB she has never had a blood test. I use valacyclovir to control my OB we abstain when I have an sensation of an out break coming the meds stop the OB before it actually shows a lesions there has to be a lesion to spread it. We don't use any other protection, but that was our choice. Years ago I was prescribed acyclovir I didn't have good luck with it so ask for valacyclovir. Also if you keep your immune system in good shape it will control HSV many people go for years without an OB. Your husband has to understand there is always a chance he could get it my wife says she never cared if she got it I told her shortly after we started dating. The more you worry about it the more stress you put on yourself. Glad to hear things are working out between both of you.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
