  1. @Blue1982 @BonBon I’m going on 5 months completely pain free so after one more month I’m going to start weaning off slowly to see how my body responds. I’ll definitely keep you posted! On a separate note, I’m also taking the following supplements my naturopath has me on to promote healthy nerves and a strong immune system. EGCG SAP B-Conplex SAP ALA SAP Vitamin C - 1000mg Theracurmin - 120mg

  2. also wanted to add that if the doctor told him he has the strain that causes cold sores then that sounds like HSV1 which is typically oral sores but could be genital sores too. if he’s never had an outbreak then it’s hard to say where his is located. if he takes antivirals it will cut the transmission rate down a lot, both orally and genitally!!

  3. Hey just wanted to say that this is extremely common for people to not know they have herpes. up until I had my first outbreak I thought every time they were doing routine STI tests that herpes was included but I had no idea that it’s not included in a regular STI panel. i got genital herpes from my long term boyfriend performing oral on me and we both didn’t know he had oral herpes. He has never had a cold sore but most people are asymptomatic. this has made me learn so much more than I thought I knew about sexual health and our healthcare system. At least now you have knowledge on how to protect yourself to lessen the transmission rate! and also I just wanted to add, I know you didn’t mean this in a mean way at all but calling yourself or somebody “clean” is a little insulting for people who do have an STI because it insinuates that they are dirty. Just wanted to throw that out there even though I know you didn’t mean it that way!!!

  4. @Ellie88 Thank you again for such wise words. As for bumps in the road, I've never been much good at change but it's looking like it's here to stay and I will adjust because I have to. A relationship and sex are about the last things on my mind these days but hoping that will change with time. I'm so glad that you are in a fulfilling relationship and hope it and your good health continues! Big hug back to you! 💜

  5. Hello! I am a 30 year old female in South Florida and I am looking for a male or female as a support buddy. I was diagnosed in January with HSV2 and have been struggling to accept that I have this. Would be nice to converse with someone who can relate to how I am feeling and support each other through this. ✨You don’t have to be perfect to be amazing✨
