Could BV be a misdiagnosis for my hsv2?

Recommended Posts

Pilar

Hello. So in July 2017, I tested positive for hsv1 & hsv2. Since then, I’ve gotten cold sores inside my mouth but not sure I can confirm ever experiencing a genital OB. However, since my herpes diagnosis, I’ve also gotten bacterial vaginosis, two times. Is it possible that the BV is actually genital hsv2

i’m not sure it is likely that bv can be misdiagnosed as hsv 1&2, as bc is diagnosed by a swab, while hsv 1&2 are diagnosed through a blood test if no sore or lesion is present

Understood. I suppose I am trying to figure out if/when my hsv2 will flare. The BV diagnosis was something I was, in some ways, hoping would teach me more about my body and hsv2.

I'd go back to the test that you had. Why did you test? What tests did you have? Do you have the specific results?

i understand. for the longest andnstill sometimes i try to figure out if i was misdiagnosed when i had the blood test. bc i had a swab before, it came back negative. then when. i didn’t have symptoms anymore i decided to try the blood test after having another sore down below and it came back positive. i was saying surely it was my antibodies fighting off some sickness or allergies 😅. because they test for high levels of the Igg antibioties which also fight off sickness our bodies already recognize

BV is a symptom of herpes 

No it isn't.

What does the B stand for?

      Looks like AiCuris is gearing up to start Phase 3 next year.  Side note:  This was supposed to be fast tracked by the FDA.  This doesn't seem like it has been fast tracked to me. Poor AiCuris has been working on this for years and because of some toxicity in primates at 90 times the normal dosage, it's been an uphill battle to get this approved.  It looks like there's light at the end of the tunnel but at what price.  I mean price as in what will it cost?  If a company is hindered and has to spend untold amounts of money to get a product to market, who pays for it?  Usually the patients.....sorry for the sad spin but it's just frustrating to see this kind of governance. Silver lining, maybe will have Pritelivir as an option by 2021.   http://www.aicuris.com/127n143AiCuris-Provides-Corporate-Update.htm Internal development program Pritelivir – Phase 2 trial ongoing, AiCuris to conduct Phase 3 pivotal trial in Acyclovir resistant HSV infections in immunocompromised patients Pritelivir (AIC316) is a highly potent inhibitor of herpes simplex virus (HSV) replication and is active against both HSV types 1 and 2. Pritelivir belongs to a new chemical class and acts via a novel mechanism of action. In contrast to currently used nucleoside analogues, Pritelivir does not require activation by viral enzymes and can thus protect uninfected cells. Pritelivir also retains activity against viruses which have become resistant to current standard of care drugs. Pritelivir has demonstrated superior efficacy in a Phase 2 trial compared to the standard treatment, valaciclovir, and is currently in another Phase 2 trial in immunocompromised patients with acyclovir-resistant infection. AiCuris plans to initiate a pivotal Phase 3 trial with Pritelivir in HSV infections in 2020.

      If you talked to Terri Warren about it I believe she can send the kit to Canada. If it's not possible to send there then the requisition form can be emailed from her for your Dr to sign and yes once they spin the blood they'll send the serum in that plastic tube to the U O W.

      Hey @null where is your holier than thouness now? Will you continue to condone behavior such as this while condemning the other.  Or do you continue with pick and choose offendedness mentality?

      That sounds really low. I recommend to consult an endocrinologist first and if required, get on TRT. Insomnia could be a side effect of low T too. If you want to have kids later, you can always freeze sperm before starting TRT, so you can still have kids later.

      Ive been able to have it a couple times but then got more damage somehow and was having trouble keeping it up. My t levels dropped in half since March .  Uro did ultrasound and found strong arteries but venous leakage so I can’t keep it up unless the stars align.     I still have pain in the glans head Off and on and pain upon orgasm.  One derm told me this was contact dermatitis
