38.6 weeks prodrome symptoms

Recommended Posts

MissPostiveMindset

I contracted it before this pregnancy and haven’t had a viable outbreak in months. I know the risks and have been taking my genetic valtrex everyday! I even double up and take two in the morning and two at night. I don’t have any visible symptoms just tingling and itching random times throughout the day. I try to tell myself maybe I’m imagining this. But I feel something. I am aware of prodrome symptoms. I just want to know why is this happening if I’m taking the medicine. I’m so upset and nervous. I want to have a natural birth but don’t want to ignore anything. I would definitely have a c-section to protect my baby. I know doctors automatically give you a c-section when you have viable lesions. When I told my doctor I have itching tingling feeling throughout the day she said I shouldn’t worry about it. She checked me and didn’t notice any active lesions recently. Why am I tingling and itching so close to labor. I’m worried about this all day! Last week I had the doctor do a swab and they didn’t call me back so I’m assuming it came back negative. I go again Wednesday and I’m just tired of bringing up herpes every time I have a prenatal visit but this is scary. I’m trying to have a positive mindset. Should I even be worried?

Hi I’m not help here since I contracted it after my pregnancy but I just want to say I’ll keep you and your baby in my prayers that you don’t have any outbreaks towards labor and you can have a safe natural delivery. I’m terrified to ever have another baby again I think I would be very worried just as you are. Best wishes.

If you contracted it before the pregnancy, your baby will probably be fine.  It has some of your antibodies already.  The dangerous situation is if you get it in your last trimester.  

Unfortunately, Valtrex doesn't suppress all shedding or all outbreaks.  That's why finding a cure is important.

      Denavir never did a good job blocking much for me and my derm said this is the norm. my next step is to do a few other blood checks to make sure I’m not destroying my insides and also add in tens which has been shown to reduce shingles outbreaks to hopefully deactivate as much of the virus as possible. Targeting lower back and thighs for this  disclaimer is that I’ve had no positive tests from wb igg culture or dna pcr so going off of visual diagnosis with md and fact I never responded to fungal and bacterial treatments over the course of a year .

      Yeah I'd love to get a line on somewhere cheaper to get this. There has to be somewhere you'd think...I"m anxious to try it with Valtrex.

      Approaching my first week of amena valtrex cccombo with denavir as needed.  100mg and 1g respectively. Read multiple human and animal studies around safety and excretion methods vs valtrex, and a newer study around discovering contraindications for amena (warfarin) I did three weeks of 1g valtrex and 50mg amena and lysine etc but ended up with a full blown break out of balanitis and spot on my lip line along with pain.  Gone in two days but sucked. Dr swabbed dna on penis but redness was gone and came back negative so going to do another , will be hard to swab while on meds anyway as amena reduces shedding significantly to undetectable levels in guinea pigs, I have this study.   so far 100mg is superior. Still getting prodrome each day but haven’t woken up with any surprises or broken out yet.    my supplement only breakout frequency was every four or five days plus increased prodrome.  Gf is pleased.
