I’ve tried to pee all day and I can’t do it, it’s all coming from my eyes. Help please?

Recommended Posts


So I’m 99% sure I have HSV1 because my partner’s ex gave it to him.... but besides the point of being extremely upset....  I have been crying all day because I cannot use the restroom... and I’m on my period..... so the pain is excruciating. Is epsom salt okay for trying to heal these sores? Is soaking in a bath okay? How does one pee?! I’m so lost and I need to pee but thinking of the pain is giving me anxiety.

Yes Epsom salts help please soak in a bath with them. Also try diluting your urine with water like pour water down there as you pee and make ibuprofen your friend.

D Mannose- get it from sprouts or Whole foods or health store. Eat some jelled cranberries and cranberry juice...


Good luck Tainted is also correct. Watermelon makes me go and cola/caffeine makes me go, but you are in a different situation. at least until you can see the doc.

Yes, I put epsom salt in a tub and soaked and then peed, it was the only way I could with out excruciating pain, towards end of outbreak the shower worked too.  I did not have the period thing to worry about so I have no advice for that, just wearing underwear was painful for me.  Good luck, it does get better.

      Hello everyone. 
      I’m came here in looks of a support group. Sorry if this is TMI, but with the topic at hand, I figure not very much is tmi here.  
      So anyways, Sunday I had started feeling what seemed like a yeast infection (had some itching but nothing looked out of the ordinary) It was late so I didn’t want to drive to the pharmacy to get Monistat, so I found on google that if you soak a tampon in a mixture of water and vinegar, that it would help relieve discomfort. I did that, and it burned, but I thought that meant it was working. The next day I woke up and was in terrible pain. I took a mirror down stairs and all of a sudden I had a bunch of white patches of skin that were bleeding. I thought I had given myself chemical burns, so I made an apt with my OBGYN, hoping to get relief. I went in today and was completely shocked when she told me that my white sores looked like a herpes outbreak! I never even suspected it. I’ve never had anything suspicious before and never saw any sores until I used vinegar. She did testing and I will find out for sure on Friday, but she said she’s pretty sure it’s herpes. 
      Im totally devasted! I get STD tested between every partner, and always ask for a full panel. I was just informed today that herpes is not included in that. Im really angry about that. Why when you ask to be checked for everything, would they not check you for something that some people have no symptoms of. I could have had this for years! I’ve been sleeping with the same man for the last 4 months, unprotected because I’m on birth control, and we were both recently tested. How do I tell him once I get the confirmation?!
      how will I ever date again. I’m only 26 years old. I’ve always dreamed of marriage and kids, and I’m terrified I will never get that now. I’m so depressed and don’t want to live the rest of my life alone. I havnt stopped crying since I left the office. How do you guys cope?

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?
