Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Are there any side effects on taking anti viral drugs.??? I am positive for a yr now.

Never taken any AV meds. Is it necessary once diagnosed AV is a must.,???

I agree with above. You just need to balance out the benefits of taking them, versus not taking them. Unless you are in a relationship or get bad outbreaks, then there is probably no need to take them

I personally don't take them because I am single (and choose to remain that way). Also, I'm hoping by me not taking them my body will build enough antibodies to fight the virus. I do worry about my viral load and how its affectingly body.

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
