My first outbreak lasted 3 weeks and was incredibly painful with medication. My 2nd outbreak was a month later with no medication being used and I barely realised I was having an outbreak. I had 1 sore and some nerve pain and itching and it lasted a few days. I think I've had a third outbreak but not even 100% sure. Had a few bumps but no blisters and was just itchy for a few days. Not currently taking any medication other than lysine and vitamins .

I'm 40 and I've had it since may this year. I'm currently having another outbreak. With my first outbreak I had 30+ blisters but with my outbreaks since there has been 1 blister each time that isnt really painful like the first ob. It's more of a tingle rather than painful and they have been pretty high up on the vag so when I pee it doesn't touch them unlike the first outbreak where they were everywhere! ! The outbreaks I get now are barely noticeable. I get a little nerve pain in my leg and I always get stomach type cramps for a few days, then a blister appears and after a few days everything has cleared up.  The first outbreak was the most painful thing I've ever experienced but now I don't really think about herpes much to be honest.

I had it for two months , my first outbreak was a cluster of blisters 10+ , the pain and stinging was horrible but I managed somehow , they took 3 weeks to heal . I am now in my second outbreak which is two tiny pimples that turned into an ulcer 3 days after noticing I have them . 

It will get better don't worry,

oh, btw I use coconut oil daily like a suppression therapy maybe thats why it's been minor to me . :)

I have GHSV1 and my first outbreak was in November of 2017. I felt like I had the flu for ONE day... my throat was hurting me, I had blisters, I felt so weak and tired and I remember sleeping the whole Saturday away. Sunday, the flu feeling went away and I had just blisters near my anus/vagina. I took medicine and put cream on that the doctor gave me and it went away within 2 weeks. Never had an outbreak since and it’s now September of 2017. Almost going to be a year without an outbreak!
