First OB from hell: PLEASE HELP

Recommended Posts


Hi guys.. So I haven't gotten my culture or blood work results back yet but I am 1000% sure this is what I have. On Wednesday I noticed I was experiencing noticeable pain near my urethra when wiping after peeing or when my pants put pressure on it. Told myself I'd give it a day then call my OBGYN if it didn't get better. Friday rolls around and I notice a sore so I basically begged for them to see me before the weekend because I was miserable. When I got there I found out I had a fever, BV, and what she suspected as genital herpes (when she was examining me she even pointed out sore I didn't even know I had). She said once my results came back she would prescribe the AV if the tests came back positive. Well.... this weekend was a weekend from hell. On Friday night I was in so much pain that I anytime I peed I would involuntarily begin shaking and sob due to how painful it was (two sores are directly underneath my urethra). I read that I could fill the tub with water and try peeing in there to alleviate my discomfort. IT DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I know this isn't good, but the only relief I have barely experienced was while drinking beer (diluted the pee). The issue with this is that I am supposed to be taking Metronidazole for my BV and you cannot drink alcohol while on it. Bottom line, I am fricken miserable guys. I have been taking Tylenol and Ibuprofen as well as applying ice packs to the area to reduce the pain/swelling. Nothing is working and I am at my breaking point. It shouldn't be more than a day or two until my labs come back, but I don't think I can do this (not that I have a choice, haha) for another day or two. PLEASE, if anyone can give me tips on what to do, I will be so grateful.

Spread your labia when you pee, pour water on it when you pee, or pee in a bathtub or shower 


drinks lots of water to dilute your urine 


sitz bath/ sit in a bowl of water for 5-10 minutes (that was my only relief with my first outbreak, the rest of the day I was in great pain) 


Stay in bed a lot and try to watch some Netflix (because there’s not much you can do anyway)

How are you doing? I remember the worst pain in my urethra area; it almost felt like it was sliced with a razor. Agony.   Using gold bond powder helps me a lot. I also use a zinc cream or lysine ointment as well.  I buy the travel sizes of gold bond and keep one in my purse so I can use it at work. Sprinkle it onto a panty liner.  I hope you feel better.

      It was not the main point of the discussion. Did I write that I believe in such an approach? I only referred to it because I wanted to point out that researchers have always been looking at the condition called latency, trying to demystify it.

      I'm not the one who claimed that he said that, and I don't have time now to read the literature to try and find it. Bob made the claim so if anything then he should be the one to back it up. I am not doubting that the fasting mimicking diet works to get autophagy going. It's a vegetable soup with some fat, so it makes sense that it would - glucose and protein inhibit autophagy, so just leave them both out and run on fat and micronutrients for a while. It's actually a kind of ketogenic diet, just without protein. Yet at the same time as promoting this specific type of keto diet, he trashes the standard keto diet with arguments that make no sense to me. That's why he seems suspect to me, because it looks like he is trying to tell people that his own expensive product is the only way to get the coveted autophagy, that you can't get it yourself simply through doing keto and/or intermittent fasting. And his product is quite overpriced for a simple vegetable soup, which is all it really is. I can make that myself. Or just boil some veggies and add some butter or a creamy sauce, I used to eat such meals quite often actually before I went carnivore. I must have been getting lots of autophagy then without even realising it. Yes, it might be that he is right about the onset of autophagy, or half-right if it depends on how keto-adapted you are. But since he has a vested interest, his word should not count as evidence for us. I don't think that's being unfair to him. If Bob wants us to believe it, he needs to provide evidence from a neutral source. @Bob8857 Do you have any better evidence?

      Please. Go ahead for transparency sake...let him.know you tested negative on a western blot and every other test before you tell him you have hsv. Because we all know it's coming.  Feel the Blurne!!!

      Post flagged for moderation. You have once again hijacked the thread to self serve your own delusion, You’ve been warned multiple times by several moderators and on your last warning. Your diagnosis was not confirmed but hypothesised on the basis of a now false positive IgG test. The WB failed to confirm.
