Hormonal imbalance?


Recommended Posts

Any of you ladies have a hormonal imbalance that aggravates HSV2? I am positive that my hormones are all out of whack! Going to see a hormone specialist soon!

Yes im  convinced hormones play a part in my obs.  Since coming off the pill 4 months ago I have nothing but issues. Had thyroids checked a few months bk and no issues so I'm trying to eat right drink enough and exercise as that's meant to balance them! Not easy with a sweet tooth this time of year :-/

I think so too.  I am not sick or stressed and sleep well, but get constant symptoms and outbreaks.  I am not a good eater, so I am sure that's not helping.  If you find out anything relevant, let us know.

What is your diet like? Do you exercise? 

I started taking B Complex every day (the supplement containing all the B vitamins) and also Vitex Agnus Castus. There have been many clinical trials done, published on the net that show vitex to be pretty much as effective as fluoxetine (otherwise known as Prozac) in treating hormonal stress/emotional lability. It's actually a first line treatment for severe PMS in Europe, yet if we go to our GP in Australia they won't have heard of it. It's also really great in stabilising all the physical hormonal issues.

If you can cut out coffee, cut out simple carbs (no need to eat white rice/white flour - there are much more nutritious options anyway) and sugar and get adequate amounts of sleep this should stabilise your hormones. there have also been clinical trials into high doses of calcium each day so that could help. 

Hope this helps a little bit :)

I have a pretty bad diet and do not exercise at the moment. I actually bought some Vitex recently but haven't started taking it yet. Hoping to feel better once I get this stuff under control. Thanks for responding:)

      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

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.

      I did notice they stoped selling the one I bought it was a 7 panel test for 7 std but now they got the 6 panel and hsv is not on it but they do collect blood and pee and you send in to a laboratory
