      I'm excited about this vaccine and think it has a great chance to be approved.  However, this is not a "curative"vaccine. The vaccine is not "knocking out" the virus in the ganglia.  Rather, it is preventing the virus from reaching the ganglia when the virus newly infects a living thing.  Once the virus is in the ganglia, I understand this vaccine does not reach there.  This vaccine is not removing the latent HSV.  Rather, it's preventing it getting there in mice that were previously uninfected.  That's an important difference with the FHC work which is curative.  The work X-Vax has published recently is prophylactic work.   The vaccine may have therapeutic application--X-Vax has said it may.  But we will have to see further studies to see how much if any therapeutic user this will have.

      Recruitment Status  : Not yet recruiting   Not sure when this study will really start.  Hope it does though.

      I'd keep in mind the fact that AAVs produce an immune response.  So if you get this DIY thing, it may later be more difficult to benefit from the actual cure.  Dr. Jerome at FHC confirmed that, if you have been exposed to AAV, making it work on you again may require immune suppressants, etc.  FHC is using AAVs as well.

      Hey @lar26 - well @Surfersparadise didn't read what you or I wrote. The situation is well beyond whether disclosure is an issue so it is not relevant in this context. It is a bit rich I have to say in receiving a lecture from someone with herpes who has not disclosed themselves for the bulk of their life. This is about making a rational decision on the basis of facts of the risks and what it means in a whole of life context. The odds are not an issue for the true decision your partner needs to make. If your partner cannot accept you as a person with HSV-1 orally, then sadly they can't and they are hence not the person for you. Unless someone is prepared to accept you for all that you are completely, then they are not partner material. You do not need to accept any compromise.

      @WilsoInAus thoughts on @Surfersparadise? I read up on an article that said risk of transmission while on antivirals is 1%. Combined with lysine, I haven't had an outbreak in forever.

Recurrent miscarriages & GHSV2

Recommended Posts

This week my pregnancy ended after an ultrasound showed no heartbeat at 8.5 weeks. I had an outbreak just the week before. Naturally I believe that this caused my miscarriage. Everything was progressing perfectly up until that point. This is now my 5th loss and with every miscarriage I had an outbreak within days before. I can’t help but think that this is the underlying cause of it all. All of my doctors have said that the likelihood of the HSV being connected to my losses is rare. But I have also read mixed things online and feel like the medical community is generally uninformed when it comes to this. 

Can anyone share their experiences with this? It would really help me to hear any stories of successful pregnancies with outbreaks in the first trimester ... or alternatively stories like mine.

I think you should see a hormone specialist. Only because my gynecologist specializes in hormones and I heard the office clerk bragging about how many people had gotten pregnant with progesterone, but I understand progesterone can make you break out as well. Heart goes out to you and I hope you find the answer.

Thanks for your response. I was on progesterone for all of my pregnancies so that wasn’t the problem.

I am so sorry for your loss. 

If your doctor tells you that there is little possibility that it is connected with herpes, believe him. Our body is a very complex system full of hormones and crazy stuff :-) 

Don't make Herpes and hence your body your enemy.

I really am sorry for your loss!

Just a suggestion, maybe the miscarriage coukd have caused the outbreak. Not the other way around? 

I really hope that you can have the pregnancy you've been dreaming of, good luck!

I had genital herpes almost 8 years before I got pregnant, during pregnancy I just had  an out break when I was 7 months, I took aciclovir as my doctor indicated and it was a healthy pregnancy, my daughter it's know almost 5 years old and it's super healthy! I know thinks are gonna get better for you and I hope you can have your healthy baby with you very soon! Very sorry for your lost!  Big hug!
