  1. Wanted to share some good news with y'all that happened tonight Hopefully for anyone feeling down or questioning about if (and really it's when) dating is possible, the answer is an emphatic yes! I dated a H- guy for awhile after I was diagnosed & ended it recently. After that, I kinda restarted taking to a guy from last year whoo I ended things with tight after I was diagnosed. I didn't tell him why I really ghosted & used school as an easy excuse. Well, since we reconnected, hanging out again, things have been pretty good and he invited to a overnight trip outta town to get my mind off school for a bit.  I figured this was good time to come clean about why I ghosted, my HSV+ status & put everything on the table tonight. To my surprise he was cool with it, actually has personal experience with his first college girlfriend. This is my third positive disclosure to a dating potential & have to say, it definitely get easier the more you do.  I'm soooooooo looking forward to this weekend now that I can't break the physical barrier hehehehehe

  3. @tmack We didn't use condoms. I was on suppressive therapy while we dated. Nothing else besides that. the transmission rate drops considerably with suppressive therapy. I've seen people on here have HSV and babies and not transmit. Definitely talk with your Ob if haven't already. Good luck! Enjoy the baby making process
  4. Hi @ash128083 I can only speak for a short time as I was diagnosed July 2018. I first opted for no suppression, then had two back to back (or one long one) and didn't have time to deal with OBs and went on suppressive. It was 500mg val once a day (after the initial episodic treatment). It worked pretty well for me as I didn't have an OB once I started taking regularly. I dated a HSV- guy for about 4 months and he did not contract from me (at least no visible symptoms). I stayed on suppressive while we dated as he opted out of using condoms. I stopped taking suppressive a couple weeks ago after ended things with him and haven't had any symptoms or OB - no vitamins, Lysine or probiotics either. Hopefully that helps some, I know I'm a short timer.
  5. Probably. or she really may not have it. I think until an episode happens, assume she's HSV- I found out via a pap smear - it's uncommon but happens.
  6. welcome @OlderNotWiser! Glad to hear there have been no side effects from the vaccine. I'm probably jinking myself, however, this shingles episode is seemingly pretty light to what I've heard, might be from catching it so early and getting on anti-viral right away. I hear the pain can last some weeks to months after the initial flare-up (?) and hoping my other stress management activities kick this bad boy down a notch sooner than later
  7. @PhoenixRising_009 School's going really well, thanks! Two A's last quarter and two more classes to end the first year (whoo hoo!!)
  8. @AMDCRX I'd be really surprised if they're related. I asked the same to my doctor and they're very unrelated since shingles comes from within (prior chicken pox exposure) vs external exposure. I am considering that the shingles was triggered after a car accident I was in Friday & the adrenaline rush compromised my immune system. Interestingly enough, it did not trigger an OB.
  9. Hello my lovies!! I hope all is well in your worlds. I'm happy to report that two weeks post waxing, no OB has been noted. I stopped dating a HSV- guy a few weeks back and stopped daily suppressive therapy too. I'll be a year diagnosed in July so I assume my body has figured out what to do with the virus on its own (yay for the human body). Interestingly enough (and unrelated to HSV) I found out today I have Shingles! Crazy right, lol. I thought it was something that happened to old people (like 50s) but, I guess not. Funniest part is the meds is the same for HSV (since they're both in the same herpes family, just quite different strains). At least I won't need a new prescription and it'll automatically keeps viral replication down. Gotta find a silver lining in the small things right? Peace and positive energy to you all
  10. So far so good! I won't say it didn't hurt in the moment, but it guess away so fast! It was actually better than the soft wax process (where they use the linen strips). A tip my girl gave me... Shave then wait two weeks. Hair should be length of a grain of rice
  11. @PhoenixRising_009 @Whymewhynow I'm gonna do it! the girl is getting waxed today!
  12. @AMDCRX also welcome and thank you for sharing. It is so reassuring to hear you went so long without OBs prior to your surgery. I hope healing is going well.
  13. @PhoenixRising_009 LOL, yea, I eventually found her and watched a couple of her videos. Still the google search was pretty entertaining too posts with links always take a day or two - he verifies they're legit before approving.
  14. soooo....just a warning....do NOT google search Krystal Jordan unless you wanna check out some XXX videos lesson learned the hard way
  15. Thanks for the love and wishes!! Sending back your way and to everyone
