Guy, last night I injected myself with testosterone and my pain and breakout disappeared in a few hours

Nope millions of men are on hormone replacement therapy 

just talk to your doc about it 

if your testosterone levels are on the lower end of “normal,” I would say definitely get some

Definitely could be some truth to that hypothesis, although I am female. I have had the Mirena IUD for almost 5 years and hsv2 for around 4 and I have very little symptoms, if any. It contains the progestin hormone Levonorgestrel, which is a synthetic version of the female hormone progesterone. Progesterone normalizes zinc, copper, and cell oxygen levels. It is produced in the adrenal glands along with estrogen and cortisol which during stress puts your body in defense mode. If the balance of these 3 hormones are out of whack, then so will your body.

Always good to leave no stones unturned with this virus for sure as it could potentially provide some relief.

I am pretty sure hormones play a big factor. My dr offered to put in an IUD at my observance that when I don't get my period I don't get an OB, but the thought scares me. I am kind too old for IUD in my opinion. Progesterone is something I am interested  in but playing around with mother nature has consequences, no?

There are risks when starting something new with your body, not likely, but surely possible. After my body adjusted to it I had no problems with it and I was told I could have them well into my 40’s.

What hang on, whoa, bless my soul.

Let's start at the beginning, Have you tested positive for herpes? What pain? Is it caused by herpes?

If not for other reasons, higher testo should make you worry less about this shit so that should probably help a ton since stress is a gigantic factor. Then again higher testo could also mean having higher need for sex I suppose and masturbation seems quite horrible for avoiding OBs :).

Testosterone helps with any infection. It is known to help people with hiv.

DHEA  levels were found to be short in ppl with HSV. DHEA will increase testosterone naturally in men and estrogen in women. It is believed to be an immunomodulator because it didn't have any effect in vitro. Yet, it protected mice from a variety of infections including HSV2. Also, the amount of viral load didn't change in the heart, spleen, pancreas, liver, and blood was unaffected by DHEA. The effect of DHEA was mediated only through stimulation of lymphocytes, lymphoid organs, and immune -modulating cytokines. 15mg.-25 women  50- 75 mg max for men P. 966-7 Disease prevention and treatment 4th edition.   DHEA is more effective via a single subcutaneous dose of DHEA although oral is effective as well.

Please research before using any hormones and make sure they are bioidentical.

progesterone will increase periods. I used to take it every other day in half the month. ladies keep it low.

I can be really stressed and tired sleep deprived hungry depressed and my symptoms are almost nonexistent as long as my testosterone shot wasn’t more than a few days back 

I swear not only the testosterone literally destroys my symptoms

it also has a huge effect on all other aspects of my life

But it has to be the real stuff or your lifestyle has to be Superman like

now I am not sure if Hgh might have the same benefits 

All men on here should talk to their doctors about wanting to increase their test

I thought irritating your skin around the area of infection causes OB , not sex by it self.

It's not friction, it's the act of sex itself. In my case, for example, herpes comes out in a place that is not affected by friction and again comes out immediately after sex.

There are sources that say that friction plays a role. Can you provide a source that says that friction has nothing to do with recurrences?

Does anyone find mini pill makes outbreaks return? I had the mirena and it was great, hardly any outbreaks. I do take aspirin daily also. But now I am on norgeston and lo and behold back to back outbreak on my buttock. I though norgeston would be OK as same hormone as Mirena...Levonorgestrel

Yep. Every progestrin-only based birth control I've been on has suppressed outbreaks. Then as soon as I switch back to the mini pill or combo pill, outbreaks come back. Its a choice between acne and outbreaks.

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.
    • CheekyMunkey
      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
