Bowel movements after HSV2

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey peeps with HSV-2, have noticed since getting it that your bowel movements have changed?

I had regular movements every day with 1 or 2 pieces but since this infection I now have constipation and only little niblets that come out.

I also notice that I seem to have difficultly holding in gas, it just passes and there’s nothing I can do about it. Never had that issue before this.

These are small issues compared to the rest of course. My entire body has changed from this.

I have never had a suicidal thought in my life but this has put me over the edge and thinking about it every day.

Dear Lord, will you please stop! Does everything that happens to you after you get hsv, attributable to hsv? If you have suicidal thoughts, you need to seek a counselor.

 The bowel movement changes are definitely due to my infection. I have been regular my entire life until after this infection, suddenly I always constipated and have pains internally.

Looks like others have the same so:

I have a whole slew of other things I just don’t mention. Constipation is the least of it.

Having never had any health issues to now have the virus I’ve always dreaded the most (after AiDS) is too much. I have been seeing a counselor but nothing will help my mindset.

Says who? What's the medical basis for saying that your constipation problems are due to hsv? Has a doctor confirmed that your constipation issues are directly from hsv2?

I’m in my 40’s and never had constipation in my life. Now I’m suddenly always constipated but I’m sure it’s a coincidence /s.

I am not here to debate with you bud. If you aren’t affected that way, great for you.

just googling “constipation hsv 2” shows quite a few hits so.

Just to chime in a little here lol your digestive issues are probably stress related due to your having hsv 2. Vitamin d is great for that

Thanks for the advice but in my case I can definitely feel i this not, that’s why I mentioned about my passing gas involuntarily. I just comes like I have no control over it and certainly never had that before.

Those are all digestive issues lol especially the uncontrollable gas try to drink more water for that. Your body will go back to normal don’t worry the stress has taken over right now but you will be okay

The issue is not whether it's possible, it's whether it's true in your case. Bowel movement issues can be caused by hsv if the virus gets into the nerves of the intestines. Until that's verified in your case, your constipation could be a coincidence or indirectly related to hsv.

Did you pay the consultation fees.there are a lot of doctors here in this forum. Some of them very professional and fully aware of the science background they are mostly finding us the cure very soon. If anyone who has little brain won’t argue on what HSV could cause since it’s affecting everybody deferently they say 80% don’t show symptoms what about the other 20% again 80% of the 20% have mild symptoms and the unlucky ones facing a lot of issues with daily symptoms.anyways some doctors in here know more than me. Try could ask you also about your test result / if you have done type specific test and a lot of other stupid question. Many thanks ( this is a free comment ) we may start charging like the other doctors

I use to eat oatmeal every day but heard when I got this people said oatmeal promotes outbreaks. I drink alot of water and eat veggies. Dont kill yourself over this try to adapt. @Frasier

Magnesium or vitaminC to bowel tollerance then back off 500mg. That's what I use. 

I am sorry you are going through this! What did you go over with your therapist? Maybe I can learn something. 

Get one thing at a time under control! (((Tight hugs)))

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
