I'm new. Found out about HSV 2 yesterday.


Recommended Posts

My story - a few days after having sex for the second with my (now ex) boyfriend I felt a pain inside my cervix and I had very (sorry this is TMI) watery discharge, I went to a clinic and was diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis.  Since then it just hasn't felt normal, I had tingling sensations and burning but never any sores or rash etc. The weird feelings went away and then came back again after I got my period - I was getting discharge that looked like a yeast infection but was not swabbing as one and just feeling general discomfort down there. I had a few days again where it felt back to normal and now it's back to feeling funny and I'm getting muscle aches in my legs and butt cheeks. 
I got my blood tested after doing some research online. I had seen 3 different doctors during all of this and they kept telling me no it's not HSV because I don't have sores. I got the results back yesterday and it came up positive for HSV 2. 

I'm now looking for advice on what my future looks like - is this just my type of OB or is this just my body fighting off the sores?

Lauren I was just diagnosed a month ago and have the exact same symptoms...no sores just yeast like symptoms...I don't have all the answers for you but wanted you to know you're not alone!

The best thing I did was get natural supplements to boost my immune system...lysine, vitamin D3, vitamin C, and an olive leaf supplement. I'm just trying to keep from having a traditional outbreak if I can.

Are you on Valtrex? Or just taking supplements?

Just supplements 

Thank you. I'm on a round of valtrex right now but I think once I'm done I'm going to stick with just supplements.

My doctor said it's best to get your body to learn how to suppress it on its own..,

Sorry, one more question - just nice to be able to talk with someone with my similar symptoms. 

Have you been changing your diet at all? I heard that certain foods can cause an outbreak and wondering if you've reduced any wheat products etc?

I have! I've been trying to eat more veggies and greens! If you go to pinktent.com Dr. Shuh talks about diet triggers/what to avoid etc. 

she says to avoid arginine. 

Brown rice

      Good morning. My name is Marlena and I come from Poland. Sorry, my English is average. For two years I have been in a relationship with a man, for a year and a half I have been struggling with intimate problems. On average, my intimate condition is getting worse every month. Then I feel itching, redness, swelling around the entrance to the vagina, small blisters (not always). Most often it is only red and swollen, itches and then disappears. This state lasts 3-4 days. I come from a small town, doctors don't know what it is. They say it's 'skin irritation'. They prescribe moisturizing creams with lactic acid, probiotics. It doesn't help. I did a blood test for HSV on my own, which is very expensive in Poland, but it does not separate HSV1 from HSV2. The doctor, when he shows these results, says that it's not herpes, but irritation. I would like to add that in the past I suffered from herpes on the lips, then it was a 'scab'. There has never been a scab in an intimate area. Sometimes there are blisters that last 1-2 days, but not always. So what do high blood test results mean? I would like to add that in Poland people do not talk about the HSV virus. It's just that sometimes someone has it on their lips and that's it. Results translation: IgM HSV 1/2: questionable IgG HSV 1/2: result above the measuring range https://files.fm/f/4cpu7uee4

      This is my first time posting here. Im generally pretty anxious when it comes to anything to do with health conditions etc. For context I have had jock itch and fungal infections previously on my buttcrack. I have had 0 new sexual partners and I am not concerned about my girlfriend cheating at all. 4 days ago my balls began itching and red pretty much all over, as you can see some general flakeyness and what looks to be a lesion I noticed on Monday when I checked them out. My partner and I do get cold sores from time to time so the anxious part of me is concerned this could be herpes, but at the same time could be some sort of fungal infection. My doctor cant see me until tomorrow so I just have to worry until then. There is no pain and nothing on the penis or anywhere else, just general itchiness. Any ideas if this is herpes or not?

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.
