Why does my period trigger outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

Celinaxox

Hello, ghsv1 sufferer here. I get an obreak monthly with my period (usually nowadays it’s just deep nerve pain) and I have heard this is the case with many women. Is there any scientific explanation behind this? Is it because you lose antibodies through blood ? Is it the hormanal factor ? I did get infected with this initially a day before my period too.

It’s related to the estrogen/progesterone balance. You can google and find a lot of info about it.  I have the same problem.  I’ve also recently read about the link to prostaglandins and hsv, and those increase during periods, too.

Hang on, prostaglandins decrease HSV replication!

Why would you write what you did as a woman? Hmmmmm

There was a flurry of interest in a connection between prostaglandins and herpes approximately 20 years ago, at which time prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions. 28 Also, inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis were reported to inhibit herpes virus replication, 29 as well as the reactivation of latent herpes from murine trigeminal ganglia. 30

Exactly, that was my point Jay. The weight of research is on the side that this hinders replication in the body of the virus and hence was a treatment option.

But that has never stopped you Jay from attempting to spread misinformation.

Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV

You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you:

prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

Anyone find a solution to this?  Literally the most frustrating thing

Try to relax and move (yoga, get a massage, swim, walking), enough sleep, eat well. St. Johns tea helps a lot. Try pomegranate (I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like it has a positive effect on hormones too).

No Jay you are missing the point related to the combination effects of the different prostaglandins - see the following article for some clarification and a little simpler in its description of the how they work together.

So Jay now we have the evidence we need. Your knowledge is zero based on cursory title reading and your so called doctor hasn’t heard of any case like yours ;)

Well you aren't as smart as you think you are.  This study was on Prostaglandin A, which may be antiviral, but it even discusses Prostaglandin E2, which is the one I was referencing that they show linked to increased obs.  And I know for a fact that you didn't talk to Dr. Blake.  He not only has heard of my case, but just asked me two days ago if he could discuss it with a colleague in neurology.  Now leave me alone.

Oh Jay we have you now. This is the danger of a young man acting as a troll masquerading as a mature woman.

You are mistaking release of virions as promoting outbreaks when its role is to stimulate the immune system to bind the virus in a stronger response.

Please disregard our resident troll.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
