Abnormal Ovulation and Herpes?

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

Ive done alot of research on this and based on what the docs/internet say...Herpes (HSV2 specifically) does NOT affect fertility/ovulation etc. 

However, after my diagnosis, I realized that my periods seem way lighter than usual..until I completely stopped getting my period over 2 months ago. Before all this, I always had regular periods. The docs did all kinds of testing and have no answers for me. They suspect that my condition may be in the early signs of PCOS (which would suck but at least it would explain something)..but as of now, tests are not showing PCOS either. All I have is an "intermediate" ultrasound that shows I have a collapsed follicle and multiple follicles. The doc couldn't explain it properly so she referred me to a GYNO.


Does anyone have any insight on this? My main concern is my ability to have kids. I was recently under severe stress due to work/career..and I even had an OB (which have become kinda rare for me) so.. I'm thinking and hoping it's just stress that's causing all this? Any insight would help or if there are mothers who conceived with HSV, I'd love to hear your stories too.

      I too feel that a drug cocktail /might/ succeed as a measure for the meantime, however I am /not/ hopeful that said drug will exist a meaningful amount of time before the cure.

      One more point to add.  I noticed it at 47:46 minute mark: "Single cell analysis suggests that combinations of AAV serotypes effectively transducing all neuronal subsets may allow near complete elimination of latent HSV genomes".  (emphasis mine).

      Yeah, I understand what you mean.  Still, if it comes to market, it's possible that some people will want to use it as a suppressive, i.e. every day for years.  So potential toxicities might end up building up.  so I think they have to be cautious about that.   A lot of people say they wouldn't mind side effects etc. but if you end up blowing up your kidneys with some herpes meds, then it won't be much fun. Still, they did lift the suspension in the immune compromised, and even fast tracked the testing, so it could be approved after this phase 2 (potentially).  And they may go back to testing in healthy people as well.   Meanwhile, Maruho will be testing amenalief in healthy people in the US in the not to distant future. The near future looks bright for improved herpes meds.  These drugs might end up being a bridge while we wait for the FHC cure/functional cure.  I'm hopeful.

      for most people the virus gets easier over time, so if your just diagnosed and start in with all the natural stuff, of course you think it's working, but it's more than likely just your natural experience with the virus...not to be a debbie downer, just saying.

      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.
