Oklahoma vaccine

Unfortunately I don't really think it matters because it seems like these prophylactic vaccines just can't get funding for trials anymore. It's extremely frustrating to watch as there's so much money being wasted or unused in this world, and funding something like this is probably the best use of money I can think of.

Agree, it actually seems like we have a bunch of vaccine candidate s out there and just no cash to back them

Yeah we do. The einstein vaccine is particular is the one that I think needs to be funded because the science appears to be very innovative and solid. The idea that one antigen is essentially used as a masking agent to disguise the more potent antigen is brilliant and makes a great deal of sense. Even if that's not the major breakthrough needed that allows people immunity, it could very well be 1/2 or 1/3 of it.

Agree their approach did seem innovative, but I  wasn't really aware of the details. Did you pick up that info just from reading their piblished papers (on pubmed etc) Betsy alluded to a novel finding in her speech last year but didn't give much moreninfo.

I think it was from an article from 2015 when they first designed the vaccine that talks about it, but I've also read other people's analysis' of it on here, and I'm pretty certain that's what the concept is.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.

      It was properly typed. Definitely HSV-2. No, he doesn’t get oral cold sores. So should I expect this to be another OB coming? I’ve never had an outbreak in my life and have been with my husband for 8 years with no problem! So I hope this isn’t going to keep occurring

      Hey @ayekayelle I am afraid to say this is pretty typical of the first few months, a fairly high chance of rolling outbreaks. Maybe the suppressive therapy will be of assistance for a while at least. By the way just to add, was you culture properly typed? Or just assumed to be HSV-2 given location? Its 50/50 seemingly as to whether cultures are typed. Does your husband get oral cold sores?

      I just had my first OB during the first week of April, and was diagnosed with HSV2 on April 12th. I just finished my 10 day cycle of acyclovir yesterday. Today I've been feeling uncomfortable. No burning or pins and needles feelings, just more so uncomfortable and not right down there. Is it possible to be getting another OB this soon, or am I just being paranoid? I'm starting suppressive therapy as soon as I receive my medication. Blah...

      Doesn't sound like HSV. You can get tested in 12 wks to be sure. Get rest
