Bright red blood

Recommended Posts

speechless_1

Hi,

I am near what I had hoped was the end of my outbreak and a new symptom hit me.  Bright red blood.  Its there when I wipe and its definitely not period blood.  Is this a usual symptom?  Have other people experienced this?  It seems to be quite a lot.  I only have 2 outer sores - they are nearly healed now - and i have one (maybe more i don't know) just at the entrance to the vagina.  I think this may be where the blood is coming from.  Ive tried to have a look but its hard to see.  

Other symptoms i have experienced - flu type symptoms, agonising pains in back of leg on side of sores, pain to pee, burning tingling sensation over whole genital area, yellow discharge, extreme tiredness.  I have been visually diagnosed with HSV, waiting swab results.

Did you ever get swab results?

Hi,  I did.  I am HSV 2 positive.  How are you doing?

Ah. Glad you have answers. I've not heard of anyone bleeding. Ouch. Was that your first outbreak? Was the yellow discharge vaginal? If so, was it "snot-like?" 

I'm either still on my first outbreak (after a week of no sores,) or on my second one in the same month. Yay. (Or a very slight possibility that I dont have hsv at all because I've only for a visual diagnosis at the moment. But thats highly unlikely.)

@Hopingimwrong That was my first outbreak.  The yellow discharge was vaginal and it was really thick, almost green.  Yes i would say it was almost snot like.  That lasted a few days then disappeared.  Im on my second outbreak - although I don't think my first ever cleared up completely they are so close together.

I think the blood was menstrual.  Im on the mini pill so i never know when i will have a period.  I feel like this has brought my period on if that is even possible!

I hope you get answers soon and start feeling better.  x

My one and only lesion is lightly bleeding tonight when I dab at it. Definitely the lesion. Beginning to think this might just be an ingrown hair, ...but my boyfriend is out of town and I obviously can't get my face down there.

Don't mess with it. Maybe dab to with peroxide and leave it alone.

It is said that it is very important to treat initial infections with antivirals! Be sure not to spread it around by itching and touching etc.

I have no idea if this is a continuation of the initial, a second one, an ingrown hair, or what. :( :( :( :(

I only have a visual diagnosis at this point. Do you mind checking out my most recent thread and seeing what you think? @GlitterDx Thanks in advance. ((()))

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
