Hi guys I am worried if I got herpes. I have gone to the doctor and they have all said I am fine, I recently had Oral sex from a girl I met. I had it done two times. The first time I was fine and the next time, I felt pain in my urine. Uti tests and stds tests expect for Herpes was done and I was good. The pain went away but I have these red sores and I am confused if they are anything? The doctor said they are normal but I just want some feedback. Thank you guys please comment. My pictures are there
Since May I have been taking Valtrex. At first it was 500mg once a day then it increased to 1000mg once a day in June after frequent outbreaks persisted. I've had a total of 9 outbreaks since May and was diagnosed with hsv2 in March of this year. The past three weeks I've had severe dizziness, especially when lying down and getting up in the mornings. Today my doctor suggested taking acyclovir 400mg twice a day. Has anyone switched from acyclovir to valtrex and experienced better results/less breakouts?
Would a person with a herpes outbreak be prescribed antibiotics?
Has anyone found a way of stopping menstrual-triggered outbreaks/viral activity?
This is the main trigger for me now after three years of having hsv2 but I don't know if there is anything that can be done without having a hysterectomy or using a contraceptive that stops it. Not keen on this or taking antivirals during my period so, are there any non medicinal solutions?
“I was tested, I’m clean,” he said on the phone
I said “Are you sure?” I didn’t like his tone
Can I see your results, in plain black and white?
Cause something feels off, I know it’s not right
“My blood tests all negative, I’m in the clear”,
I said “Where is HSV bloods, cause I don’t see it here?”
We both seemed confused, and picked up the phone
It’s not included in the panel? How should we have known?
Did I give it to him? Did he give it to me?
The CDC doesn’t test for herpes? HOW COULD THIS BE?
Did he cheat? Was it dormant? Did I pass on a disease?
No answers from lab coats to put me at ease
No bedside manner, or kindness in their voice
They decide what to test, what about our choice?
I have to beg and to plead to pay for a test?
Because knowing my own status will cause me more stress?
Is this all a joke? Some kind of enigma?
For a medical community to promote this kind of stigma?
“We don’t think the test will change a damn thing”
How about the psycological pain it will inevitably bring?
“We therefore encourage doctors not to run the test”
So let the poor symptomatics deal with the mess?
“Ignorance is bliss, so it’s better to not know”
And for everyone else, you reap what you sow?
“It’s a harmless skin condition,” they’ll tell you I’m sure
But let’s not test or talk about it, and not look for the cure
False positives, the stigma, and lies all around
A few examples as to why the CDC let’s us all down
DEATH TO THE CDC fuck it right up the ass
Include Hsv in the tests, we all may not pass
And that’s perfectly fine let’s talk about it more
Let’s normalize the STI, and the common cold sore.
