Hi, I was diagnosed with HSV-2 in October... this outbreak lasted 3 weeks, a week and a half later I had a second outbreak which lasted for 2 weeks, that ended two days ago and now I feel like I am getting a third. I was wondering if supression therapy would help? I have never taken any meds for this however now I’m feeling like it will never end. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey @Sair123 this can be the experience of the first few months with genital HSV-2.

Some people rise it through and others do take antivirals for a few month spell. Talk with your doctor on what might be best for you.

hey @Sair123 i can totally relate to what you are saying! i was diagnosed with hsv2 aswel in sept , my initial ob lasted just over 2 weeks then a few weeks later i had another , much less severe and didn’t last aslong (took antivirals when the sore appeared - there was only 1) then i had another few blisters a few weeks later which again cleared up in like 2 days, before each outbreak i would feel tingling down there which is when i should of taken my antivirals but i just wanted to see if that was my warning sign of an outbreak and how my body would react if that makes sense, also i was really stressed and going out drinking loads so that also didn’t help with the number of outbreaks ... i’ve read that taking antivirals for long periods of time can’t be great for you so i’ve been trying supplements like zinc, i lysine and garlic tablets, i’m putting the humber of my outbreaks (all be them small) kist down to the fact that my body is trying to handle the virus so i’m hoping (and i have read) that they do decrease after the first 3 months ... not sure if this post has been helpful in anyway but you aren’t alone! also i have started biting down the dates of my outbreaks / when j feel tingling etc to see if i have any triggers etc  which i’ve found helpful

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
