Hello everyone 🙂
I have been diagnosed around 4 months ago and what I realised is that my periods are a real trigger for me.
Each month, around 5 days before my period I get an outbreak.
They still haven’t cleared up- the same ones keep disappearing and coming back and it has been 2 weeks now, which has really felt like a long time.During these 2 weeks I have been really anxious and stressed out, and ate a lot of sugar. Maybe that’s the reason why the symptoms are taking a long time to go away.
I was wondering, is 2 weeks a normal duration for an OB? How long does an OB usually last for? What can I do to shorten the duration? I know when I will be getting my OB’s since I track my period days- so maybe I can be a step ahead of the OBs with your suggestions!
Thank you and stay safe!! 🙂
Topic: Feeling lost.
I was diagnosed this week with HSV-2 and of course I feel shame, embarrassment and lost. It all started with an itch and then a sore on my my vagina, who knew it would be herpes…
I’m on day 4 of my anti-viral medication and I’m just wondering if any of you have had similar symptoms?? I’m still cringing when I pee due to the sores. My lower back has hurt for days, I have tingling in my legs and just feel weak in my body. I’m also very itchy down there with the feeling of a UTI coming on. Please tell me this is normal and if I have to finish the course of my 7 day antibiotic to feel human again.
I honestly can’t believe this is happening to me, I feel so alone in this.
Thank you to anyone who responds!
So ima gonna try to shorten this as much as possible so I’m positive for genital herpes and I didn’t know I had it! After rough sex my skin was becoming raw down there and I thought it was just from the lack of lubricant down there and stuff and then the person I talk to he tells me it burns when he pee.. and I instantly became scared I already had an appointment with the ogbyn and stuff the next day so basically I went there and she looked down there was like oh yeah this look like herpes and I started crying and just was confused and like before I had sex with guy 1 who I’m really close to were damn near in a relationship but We’re single but few days before I went to him I had some sexual intercourse with some guy we’re gonna call him Tom.. and it was a mistake cause we even talked about stds and all that before we did it cause I really didn’t want to but you know the peer pressure.. and then back to where I just got diagnosed at the ogbyn I’m scared as fuck and I instantly think it’s the new guy I call guy 1 up and we’re gonna call him lance.. so I call lance and tell him and he’s pissed and just like huh wtf blah make sure he get tested and all so I call Tom and tell him but he swears up and down he’s clean that it wasn’t from him that he can show me his test results from March and he hasn’t been with anyone since before his test results and so basically lance hasn’t been there for me honestly he been playing the blame game and shit but I call the ogbyn to confirm is it actually herpes and I was confirmed to be positive for genital herpes and she said it was a past exposure that I was exposed to it 6 weeks ago and I was just like what!? So it’s not the new guy.. and 6 weeks ago it could’ve been either two guys lance.. or another guy we’re gonna call him .. Peter but the timeline matches perfectly with lance and these are guys I been doing things with I thought I felt safe cause I got tested in feb after I been with them and was negative ! So anyways I tell Peter I call him and he’s like calm but he’s like “ no it couldn’t of been me I get tested regularly and that he hasn’t been with anyone but me after his ex and after his ex he got tested but he will go get tested and he’s gonna lmk “ so I tell lance it could’ve been from him and he’s just not believing it at all continuing to say it’s me and saying he used a condom but I read if someone is having a outbreak and they use a condom they can still get it and honestly I need some friends to vent to I need a little support group I. Don’t know what to do I’m really devastated
Topic: Questions and concerns
Hi, I was just diagnosed with Hsv1 today. I have so many questions. My husband who we are separated has given it to me. He hasn’t got his results back but feel like he’s in denial, or he’s like this is common a lot of people have it. And is acting like it’s okay. Which I’m having a hard time processing this. So he’s not showing symptoms in his gential or mouth area. But I have only slept with him the entire time of our marriage and during separation. I know for a fact he’s had sex with another girl during our separation. But he’s putting blame on me and now he’s being distant. If we both have hsv1 could he eventually get it in his gential area of we do end up working things out? Do we need to tell people we have hav1 if we don’t stay together? He’s making this seem like it’s not a big deal. Can we pass it back and forth of we do have sex again?im just so confused and lost!
Just two days ago I got a call from my doctor and he told me I was positive for type 2. Prior to that phone call I made an appointment at urgent care because I noticed a sore it was not painful at all, but I still thought I should get checked. When i got the phone call my heart just dropped it was like the world stopped for me. I cried nonstop for the past couple of days, I just couldn’t bring myself to be okay with this. I’m just constantly thinking of my future with this. Will i ever be able to have a healthy romantic relationship? Will a guy still find me attractive after telling him my status. I just feel like this virus took my beauty away, you know? And what does my future look like as far as having children? I’ve been having very dark thoughts about ending my life but with my family’s support I chosen not to let this virus define me. Its just a lot to process right now because the news is so fresh. I would love advice and support while getting through this.
I was diagnosed with genital HSV1 3 years ago when I had my first outbreak. I remember it was horrible all over my vulva etc. I took some valtrex and it went away and although I feared I’d get it again, I didn’t have another outbreak until now – 3 years later. This outbreak is still in a similar area but its more around my anus which seems a bit unusual, but it’s pretty much as bad as the first (leg pains, swollen groin glands and horrible itch). Ive been in a stable and loving relationship for a year now so I think it’s unlikely I’ve now contracted HSV2 but can someone maybe provide some advice on why this may have happened again so late. Could it just be stress? I have been eating a lot of chocolate and peanut butter lately but it seems unlikely that would trigger a whole outbreak?
