I think we have reached the end of the line. A person truly infected with HSV-2 would never behave like this. Truly appalling.

It is obvious now from those posts that your story has the substance of a tissue. It has changed and contorted multiple times. All of that is no matter. You have never tested positive for HSV-2.

It is time for you to leave this website and find something else to do for your benefit and the benefit of our readers who can now readily see the truth.

Because the truth is real. People are real.

Good luck on your journey.

 

The truth is Wilson, you are a nobody.   Maybe that’s your problem, you wish you were a doctor.  I am sure such a psychological disorder probably does exist.  Perhaps your sociopathic trolling has exposed your real issue then.   Now why don’t you just piss off and stop torturing people of this forum with your incessant and incredibly aggravating trolling.  I have asked you dozens of times not to reply to my posts with your repeated and incredibly stupid accusations regarding my health status.  You have a serious and real psychological disorder.  It’s time for you get some medical attention at the psych ward buddy.

Sure! From my understanding, E2 (Estradiol) can protect you from outbreaks while elevated Progesterone makes you more suspectible to outbreaks. However, another study says that elevated E2 levels can

I'm trying valtrex 1g a day. I get lip prodrome nearly every day of the week and always have a pustule breakout above my lip but connected to it.  Dermatologist said it was behaving like hsv due to burning and tingling as well as sun activation.  I get at least one break out a week, have constant nerve pain in my thighs and glans, as well as random penile redness. 

Amena-relief is on the way. Going to try 1000mg valtrex and 100 or 50 MG amena. I thought one person here was trying 50.  I also ordered bht and am planning on trying that.

My total testosterone dropped from being normal in March (450) to low in September (250).  Low testosterone can also cause more outbreaks.  I wonder if hsv was designed in a lab as a way to lower reproduction, because studies show it targets the ovaries and also lowers sperm count.

I'm also planning to see a urologist to help with my hormone issues.

Just reading this thread again.  I was thinking of taking a shot of sustanon to kickstart a new training regimen.  I caught my herpes in Thailand like vfrog, and have experienced this non-stop hell of never ending mouth burning, fatigue, fever, and lesions at back of mouth.  I stopped training and staid indoors most of the summmer as i live in cabo, Sonoran desert, extremely hot and sunny.  Have not been sick nearly as much since i quit swimming.  It is the only thing good i have left in life and want to get back in the water now that the north pacific gyre is starting to dominate again.  Just wondering if a few shots of juice might help keep the virus at bay as i try to get back into living a healthy life again.  

I strongly don't recommend to take one shot of sustanon at any time. TRT is for life, temporary use only causes further problems. However, if your testosterone levels are actually low, go for it! But just remember it will be for life. Once you ruin your natural production, there is no going back.

Viralfrog, fyi, I recently tried klonopin during a very depressive run and to my surprise i found that it suppresses my herpes more potently than anything, including valtrex.  I had a box and literally could not get an outbreak on this stuff regardless of how hard i tried.  I am off of it now as it is total zombie juice.  One pill will turn you into a zombie for two days.  I can’t function on the stuff.  It does put the brakes on my hsv though, and reduced my tongue burning to levels I haven’t experienced in years.  I am going to try to get my life back together, but will keep the kpin on hand.  Maybe alternate workout days with zombie days.  Just though i would tell you as our misery seems so similar in its intensity and debilitating symptoms.

I've had similar experiences with Xanax, but these types of drugs are not suitable for daily use. They are known to help with every disease as they will just cause you to not give a shit about what's happening.

No I’m sorry you have NEVER swabbed positive for HSV-2. Fact.

You cannot be diagnosed with throat herpes without a swab.

Stop trolling and fuck off. No one has time for this nonsense.

Hey Wilson, please keep this pointless arguing out of this thread. It's for my personal timeline on my progress trying to beat constant outbreaks. 

I'm probably the only one here that has the slightest bit of respect for your approach, as it it very important to make sure one has HSV to start with. But adding this shit into every single thread ruins them, because when you're researching stuff on this forum you end up having to read through multiple pages of you arguing with someone you don't believe has HSV. It doesn't add any value. If you mention your doubt one time, we can see it and read it, consider it ourselves. But no need to keep it going and going.

Hey @viralfrog I don’t disagree with you, but a polluted thread is a polluted thread until it isn’t. I will think about your comments.

VIRAL said what I was getting at, just more eloquently. I enjoy our discussions and appreciate a good ribbing but we tend to ruin multiple threads and it chases people away.  Many of us are guilty of trading barbs over and over again or repeating the same arguments

thanks for the feedback VF.  Do you think even just once cycle of sustanon, for say 8 weeks would lead to a lifetime commitment.  I don't think I'm low in Testosterone, but I am sure that my levels have taken a hit from this infection.  I started microdosing with T3 and find it helps a bit, but I am looking for something that will allow me to workout again.  Was hoping the sustanon might help me get up to speed and in better condition faster while minimizing the fatigue/fever that comes with the training.  Do you think that just intermittently using HCG might be more effective for someone with normal tes levels but wants a boost?

Actually, the T3 might be  helping a lot.  I've only been taking it for a month, just microdose in the morning, 16-32 mics.  I don't really feel any difference physically, but I have been getting fewer breakouts lately.  That said, I completely gave up on exercising and just sit indoors at my desk all day now.  The real test will be when I get back on my feet.  I can't live like this, I feel like I'm dying.  I have to train.

In February 2013, Yahoo! Sports reported that Braun's name appeared three times in records of Biogenesis of America, a Coral Gables clinic alleged to have distributed performance-enhancing drugs to a number of Major League Baseball players who tested positive for banned substances.[189] One entry noted that Braun owed the clinic between $20,000 and $30,000.[189] Braun's name was not listed next to any specific PEDs, unlike some of the other players mentioned in the records.[189] Braun released a statement maintaining that his attorneys had retained the clinic's operator, Anthony Bosch, as a consultant during his appeal of his positive drug test the previous season, and denied any further dealings with the clinic.[189]

I don't think one 8 week cycle of Sustanon will lead to a lifetime commitment, but it will surely do more harm than good. You can find lots of information on bodybuilding forums. Basically, you will supress your own production in those 8 weeks completely. You will take maybe 4+ weeks to recover from the cycle, whilst feeling down and losing anything that you have gained. 8 weeks on Sustanon is not enough to make any significant difference. 

Bodybuilders typically do 12+ week cycles with high doses of multiple steroid compounds for maximal muscle gain. Lets say during such cycle you gain 8kg of muscle mass. After the cycle, you will take other compounds (post cycle therapy) to assist with recovery and might still lose around 50% of what you gained. After you have finally recovered, you might end up with a few extra kgs of permanent muscle. But is it worth it, knowing the risk of permanent hormonal issues and probably guaranteed extra outbreaks? I doubt it. 

I would strongly suggest to measure your total and free T levels and after that make one decision:

-A: your levels are sufficient - don't do it

-B: your levels are not optimal - start TRT and feel better for life.

I can imagine how you feel as someone who trains very hard as well. I almost lost my motivation completely but didn't give up despite feeling like crap.

Thanks for your reply.  I decided against the testosterone.  I will stick with dhea for now and perhaps some research peptides when i can afford them.   Also ended my experiment with klonopin.  Shit is horrible.

@viralfrog

both of you - my total testosterone has dropped in half in 6 months - unsure why.  It was 463 March 2019, then  250 in Sept, now 210 in November.  My urologist wants me to try HCG injections, but I am worried about triggering outbreaks due to Arginine / contaminants.  I have read of others having outbreaks due to HCG diet/supplementation, and maybe one or two others who had no issue. 

My goal is to be able to have kids.  I can't keep it up due to failure to maintain - looks like I have a venous leak on top of pelvic floor issues and on top of low t-levels.  Doc was hoping HCG would fix it over time. 

Any thoughts on this?  My guess is whatever virus I caught last year (HPV/HSV/VZV/etc) is killing my t-levels, but this is just a guess.  It could also have to do with my terrible insomnia.

My first year was the worst, the terrible fatigue.  I have aged badly on account of this never ending herpes attack.  I have not been tested but I know my thyroid and testosterone levels took a hit from this virus.  wilson the troll will soon pipe in with some bullshit, but you can just do a search in the pubmed databases and read the science.  I've read hundreds upon hundreds of herpes studies, and indeed it does knock your thyroid levels down.  I have an online Doctor I talk to every three months for valtrex refill, he is based out of Los Angeles.  He said the science does indicate that taking T3 can fight the herpes, though it is off label and they cannot prescribe it for herpes infections.  I bought a bottle of it and take just a micro dose each day, it's been over a month now, and I do seem to be fighting the virus better.  A 50% drop in test sounds pretty crazy though.  I am not an expert so I would definitely seek out a specialist to look into that for you.  There is no doubt my testosterone levels took a hit from the nasty strain of hsv-2 I picked up in Thailand, but I would say ten percent max, just guessing based on how I feel compared to pre-infection.  I'm definitely lower and want to boost it back up.  The T3 microdosing does seem to be helping, but I haven't done any bloodwork to confirm that.  I wouldn't worry about arginine though.  I think the whole arginine thing is bs, it might actually help you fight herpes.

thanks - what did you do for hormone testing?  My TSH is actually borderline low - indicating i have a super thyroid.  I will check my T3 but guessing they are already high.

I've not done any of that sort of blood work due to finances.  I am going to get it done soon though.  All I can tell you is a few mics of T3 each morning has made me more resilient to never ending horror.  I am in a constant state of breakout.  It just fluctuates from shitty to f'n horrible.

That sounds really low. I recommend to consult an endocrinologist first and if required, get on TRT. Insomnia could be a side effect of low T too. If you want to have kids later, you can always freeze sperm before starting TRT, so you can still have kids later.

Hey @viralfrog

I read some of your posts and I want to tell you that I have gone though a similar experience and come out of it sooo much better.  I had crazy outbreaks and I tried so many things- antivirals, monolaurin, lysine, ozone injections, herbal remedies, and nothing worked until I finally found ways of approaching the illness that worked out for me. In 2015 I had non-stop outbreaks and stabbing pain for a whole year and it continued until I was able to find health professionals who actually knew what they were talking about. Here are some main elements of what I did do: 

Instead of attacking it  from the outside in I learned that something was suppressing my immune system to the point where it could not handle the disease. The virus is a symptom of the underlying problem, not necessarily the cause. 

1. I stopped eating nuts/seeds, protein powder, gelatin/bone broth and all high arginine foods (all have high arginine levels which were giving me nightmarishly painful symptoms). 

2. I stopped eating wheat and dairy- which were contributing to yeast infections which where suppressing my immune system

3. I did an extensive series of blood panels- My primary western medicine care giver said that all of my blood panels were normal and she could do nothing for me except antivirals. I finally saw a functional medicine doctor who was able to analyze the panels with a more sensitive standard range. Based on my results she prescribed a series of supplements which included high quality Vit D, calcium, zinc, b12, etc - after a month and a half on the supplements and cutting out dairy I noticed a DRAMATIC shift in my immune and mental health. My yeast infection went away and my genital outbreaks greatly decreased in frequency. 

4. All of the outbreaks and isolation contributed to severe depression and anxiety- extreme and prolonged emotional stress can shut down parts of your immune system which needed to also be addressed and booted up again in different ways. I took herbal thyroid support for a short time and then consistently went to a therapist that worked for me, and made a concentrated effort to reach out to friends(social isolation is one of the most stressful experiences a human can have).

My genital symptoms went from every day to once every 4 months or so. Im not done- I still have outbreaks on my mouth a lot but I am going to take a provoked heavy metal test and a mycotox test to see if I still have something that is still suppressing my immune system. 

Your healing might look different than mine- but I would encourage you to perhaps find a functional medicine doctor who knows how to analyze blood panels and make appropriate recommendations for your diet, tests you can take, and supplements to reset your immune system. Just as there are western medical doctors that are shitty- there are also naturopaths that are quacks and don't use science-based medicine. I have unfortunately dumped too much money into some of these quacks. But there are functional practitioners out there that have the skills to help, that offer things that many western medical doctors might overlook because they have been conditioned to rely on pharmaceuticals for everything. 

If you want to pm me to skype I can tell you in greater detail about what I did which helped me. I know what its like to feel trapped and maybe my experience will help you.

      I had HSV2 for a few years now and only got 1 to 2 outbreaks a year.  I had Mirena since the end of 2015.  Since then I'm consistently getting outbreaks.  I get outbreaks every month right at the start or end of my menstruation.  Sometimes I cant tell if I have a yeast infection or not, because I get those every now and then, but more common with birth control pills, which I'm no longer on after my body rejected 3 different types.
      I read that progesterone, which Mirena contains, increases outbreaks and lowers the body immune response to it.  I'm about to remove it now, my doctors appt is coming up.  I'm realizing this may be the cause of my consistent outbreaks.
      Anyone else have this issue or know about this, mire information is helpful.
      Thanks.

      Hi @bme2020 there's a few things to consider here. Two equivocals with no outbreaks is almost invariably negative. The chances of you having genital HSV-2 are quite remote. Let's assume a person does have genital herpes and uses tweezers. It is very unlikely for enough on the virus to transfer to the tweezers. Further, exposure to oxygen kills the virus. Hence you can expect in most practical circumstances the virus to be viable for only seconds to minutes. Let's no go into what would have to happen at the other end as well to actually infect someone - they'd pretty well have to jab into a nerve!

      I first found out I was exposed to hsv2 in early January. I never had an outbreak that I knew of. I had my 1st moderna shot March 14 and my 1st hsv2 outbreak a couple days later.  it was very minor.  I took valtrex and it cleared in 3 or 4 days. I had my 2nd moderna shot April 14. I had a minor out break the next day. I took valtrex and was gone in 2 days. I  suppose it could be coincidence but...after my 2nd outbreak I strongly suspected a tie. I wouldn't let this affect my decision to get the vaccine.

      Hey @Mard3 the most important ingredient to reducing transmission chances is knowledge of your infection. Where the infected person is using this knowledge to avoid sexual activity during actual and potential outbreaks, then transmission chances are quite low indeed. In these circumstances, female to male transmission is about a 4% chance over a whole year of sex. Hence even over three years the chance is still quite low. It is lower still if condoms are used for example and if you are taking antivirals. Of discordant couples, about half will go their whole married lives together without transmitting at all!!

      Hello all!    This may seem like a crazy question. But my mind is spiraling in the whats if’s. I have tested equivocal for HSV2 twice with no obvious OBs.  So I’m not even sure my status, but any itch, twitch, weird bump, etc I get sends me over the edge every time. Anyways, last week I felt a pimple/bump on the left side of my vulva. If you weren’t feeling for it, you wouldn’t know it was there really. It was a small bump (like half of a pea size). Pretty much skin color. So I investigate and of course try to pop it and pick it like I should not do! Lol.  Nothing really came out. I thought I saw a little hair or something so I got tweezers and picked at it. Couldn’t get anything and just irritated it more. Fast forward two days and it’s gone and healed.    The tweezers I used were my family members. I truly can’t remember if I cleaned them off or not before putting them back, I was so panicked. Today she said she has a cold sore on her mouth. She has always had oral cold sores so this isn’t a new thing for her. But in my mind I’m panicking connected the two. What are even the chances that say what i was picking at the tweezers with WAS HSV, and she then used them around her mouth, could get she the HSV2 that I maybe have? It would have been over 24 hrs from the time I used the tweezers to when she possibly could have (and again, i don’t even know if she’s used them, I’m just freaking out about what if she did!) is this even possible? To transmit HSV from infected tweezers if someone uses them near their mouth?    I know it’s all a bunch of what if’s but hopefully someone can provide some insight on this. Thank you!

      I have dated the same guy for 3 years and some how he has not gotten it. I'm wondering how that is possible?
