Recommended Posts

It has been 11th month since my diagnosis of hsv2. Currently I am experiencing monthly outbreak at different area of my private part. Is it normal?

Hi! As what i know, since you are a female, these are the possible reasons for your OB:

-Stress, anxiety, depression

-hormonal changes or menstral cycle.

-food diet intake high in arginine.

lets wait for others to comment.

I was diagnosed in June with my First outbreak and I keep getting them too twice a month so discouraging! They aren’t nearly as bad as first one and don’t really cause me discomfort besides knowing they are there. I’m on Valtrex every day too and completely changed my diet so I’m hoping as time passes it gets less and less :-/

Hi everyone, 

it can happen to have outbreaks frequently at the beginning. However, they are getting less. I had the same issue, at the beginning I visited my doctor office more often than my parents' one, haha. 

I know it sucked, but be patient. Find your trigger! As Unforgiven already said, stress and nutrition are very important. I personally feel lots better since taking a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice (half a lemon) in the morning. Hope that helps :-)

Roja,

do you take supplements also or just meds for prevention?

Maybe time to take 6g lysine, red marine algae, monolaurin, and Spanish olive leaf extract and see how things drop. You could add one every month or try them all then taper back once feeling better.

At the moment I am taking (daily): 

* one glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice in the morning before breakfast (I just squeeze half a lemon into the glass) - this little change made me feel SO much better!

* olive extract

* Echinacea (also helps me a lot, I feel like it boosts my immune system) 

I also tried curcumin (I found a medical study that shows that curcumin actually stops the virus from reproduction) but I had digestion problems after a while so I had to stop it. Now I will try zinc, I will let you know if it works :yep:

When I feel like herpes is coming, I usually take medication (Aciclovir). I also used to take Lysin, but I searched for medical studies about Lysin and I couldn't find one that actually shows effect on herpes!! :S

Oh, and the most effective thing that stopped herpes from coming back frequently was changing my attitude about it. Some weeks ago started watching lots of videos in Youtube and read blogs and since then I don't feel any more shame, anger or disgust about it. I am aware now that it is just something on my skin and that I don't have to be ashamed about it. And to be honest, since then I had less problems down there :yep:

      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.
