Recommended Posts

Any guys on here been successful? Really don’t want to do medication? Any success stories where the guy just had a pretty healthy lifestyle and knew when there symptoms came to avoid sex? Any kids? Did you have sex with partner during pregnancy and avoided transfer to partner and baby ? Don’t need statistics. Need real stories

Maybe there is currently no one here who is going through pregnancy, or trying to become pregnant? 

Personally, I've never transmitted it to anyone, and i've had unprotected sex with women, in periods when I was using antivirals, and while I wasn't using antivirals.

I don't get outbreaks though,

I can’t say I have genital hsv1 for certain. Had some irritation for about 15 months and did test positive for hsv1 via blood.  

Never had all this burning and discomfort below my waist (butt, thighs, penis) before.  

However I have had sex for the past 18 months 6-12 times a month and not passed anything that I am aware of.  

I have never seen a blister or bump that looks like herpes.  Just this constant burning sensation just below the skin level.

Ive never passed it on in 20 years even with unprotected sex (although this has only been with specific partners), but this is before i understood shedding and since became more worried about passing it to someone, especially now i want to have more children with a new partner.

If you take treatment, even around outbreaks and obv avoid sex during outbreaks, your risks are low. Lower still on low suppressive treatment, and with a condom even higher safety. But yes theres that risk like you have posted about which bugs me, still searching for the best answer. But i think ultimately the risks are there, small though. I guess you can just inform your midwife that you have it, they can test for it during later stages and worst case she will have to have a C section and not breast feed. then atleast you wont pass it to the child.

Dont forget also that just because your partner doesnt have symptoms doesnt mean they havent been passed hsv, many many people go a lifetime without any signs

      Do you have periods of say a few months where it's ok and then periods where it's off the charts and uncontrollable no matter what you do? Thats how mine is. It's always with me but there are periods where it's better than others....some months are ok, some are just relentless herpes....no rhyme or reason...it's never great no matter what.

      Denavir never did a good job blocking much for me and my derm said this is the norm. my next step is to do a few other blood checks to make sure I’m not destroying my insides and also add in tens which has been shown to reduce shingles outbreaks to hopefully deactivate as much of the virus as possible. Targeting lower back and thighs for this  disclaimer is that I’ve had no positive tests from wb igg culture or dna pcr so going off of visual diagnosis with md and fact I never responded to fungal and bacterial treatments over the course of a year .

      Yeah I'd love to get a line on somewhere cheaper to get this. There has to be somewhere you'd think...I"m anxious to try it with Valtrex.

      Approaching my first week of amena valtrex cccombo with denavir as needed.  100mg and 1g respectively. Read multiple human and animal studies around safety and excretion methods vs valtrex, and a newer study around discovering contraindications for amena (warfarin) I did three weeks of 1g valtrex and 50mg amena and lysine etc but ended up with a full blown break out of balanitis and spot on my lip line along with pain.  Gone in two days but sucked. Dr swabbed dna on penis but redness was gone and came back negative so going to do another , will be hard to swab while on meds anyway as amena reduces shedding significantly to undetectable levels in guinea pigs, I have this study.   so far 100mg is superior. Still getting prodrome each day but haven’t woken up with any surprises or broken out yet.    my supplement only breakout frequency was every four or five days plus increased prodrome.  Gf is pleased.
