Having a hard time processing this


Recommended Posts

I found out just yesterday February, 15th that i had HSV-2. I got it from my now ex who I have found out he got it from somebody he was sleeping with while he was with me. While i was having my first outbreak I went to get tested to see exactly what it was, and the doctor told me it looked like HSV-2 but said she wont say thats what it is till after she sends it out to be tested. She gave me Antiviral medication for the sores that I did have that did go away after taking them for about 3 days but im still finishing the medication that I have left. At the moment im not sure how to process finding out I have HSV-2. A lot of things are going through my mind about this and im not to sure how i feel

I am truly sorry you are going through this. The mental anguish of learning you have been cheated on by a loved one carries its own pain without having to deal with an infection. First try to remove the anger/hurt as that will not help you heal yourself and you are the only one who can care for you. There are ways to deal with this, Allopathically  or Holistically, whatever is your comfort zone as you are now on a journey of learning how to care for yourself and consequentially others in your life. 

There are incredibly knowledgeable people here to help you understand the science behind it and their Allopathic treatment options.

I treat Holistcally and can only speak from that angle. If you have interest in that there are a few of us here that can share our experiences though this virus is so unique to each individual.

We do not have all the answers but can offer direction. You have found THE place for support. We are in it with you and will do what we can to help, past posts from everyone prove that. You will have to sort through information and most important to remember, everyone is different and their experiences are not yours, you only need to understand your experiences. I believe we are smarter than a virus, no matter how tricky it is.

Knowledge is strength and removes fear. You will probably still be pissed off like the rest of us but that is real life!!!

      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
