  1. Keep trying l-lysine (a higher dose, daily) along with liquid chlorophyll during OBs as well as echinacea & goldenseal (10 days max for that). Ive never taken the prescription meds. Cut out sugar, dont wear friction clothes, if you’re removing pubic hair by traumatic ways (wax) STOP or if you are not, trim it some. Use witch hazel toilet approved wipes & blow dry the area after showers & no underwear to bed. Those are all tips & tricks to try until it goes away & see what works. Personally, taking the supplements at onset of a OB makes it go away in less than 4 days. Continuously taking l-lysine & my flintstones vitamin daily keeps OBs from happening, as well as not wearing friction underwear that would rub against the OB zone. Hope u get some long-term relief asap!
  2. Idk if this is herpes related but since being diagnosed spring 2018, i can thankfully count on my hands how often I’ve had an outbreak. However, ive noticed i get pain, like an ache, like sitting on your butt too long kind of ache, but on my labia AND around my anus, simultaneously. Every time I google it, it’s only pregnant women relating to it but I’m not with child & never have been. My period did just end today, pain started yesterday. Guess i need to journal this episode & when it happens again, journal & compare.
  3. This is old but I told every partner from the past year before diagnosis. You can always find a way to submit the message anonymously.
  4. Waxing triggers it for me but so far the schick women’s electric razor works fine. However, im also not shaving in the target areas.
  5. I have selective casual sex. One guy we were flirting via phone & he kept saying he wanted to do oral on me, so since we had already went on a “dinner date” a week prior, i just told him. I told him he can’t & i told him why. He was cool with it & so far we’ve had protected penetration sex 3x. The first time he said alright, now tell me about this thing again lol & he made an informed decision to still have sex.
  6. I think shedding happens from the site of where your OBs occur. But prodome symptoms can occur anywhere where the nervous system is involved.
  7. If it’s inflammation, try incorporating anti-inflammatory foods & supplements into your daily eating. Inflammation is big on causing/triggering disease in our bodies.
  8. More than likely one of your flings gave it to you because you posted this story somewhere else & said you haven’t had sex with your boyfriend in MONTHS. The fact 2 weeks went by & you had an outbreak, simply shows it was during that break. Roll with the punches. As he do research, he’ll eventually ask & or ponder if you slept with others. Also, it technically is his business what you do since y’all are sexual partners & more close than the flings. You put his health at risk with that mindset. That’s like whoever was the carrier saying oh it’s not her business i have herpes because she’s just a fling. So with that said, I don’t see where the confusion is. Only advice: You told him you have herpes, so let that be that & stop overthinking & worrying. Find supplements to build your immune system. Good luck
  9. All has been well, UNTIL I decided to wear some shorts that hugged closely to my genitals and literally within the next hour, the itching started. Then the next day more itching and sore odor. Now today, the pain to where I had to walk with a fake limp at times because friction near my butt causes pain. Smh I hate this crap. So, in summary 2 things i did wrong: wore lounge shorts commando AND was slacking on taking my l-Lysine. When i stay consistent with my vitamins, I go months without an outbreak. Triggers so far: clothing rubbing, non-silicone sex toys, excessive sugar, rough sex, inconsistency w/ vites, and brazilian waxes.
  10. I take garden of life raw vaginal probiotics & it’s great at keeping usual vag issues away. As far as hsv related i take l-lsyine 1000mg daily. If i stop, i usually end up with an outbreak.
  11. My last OB, i had got 2 yeast infections a few days before it
  12. Yes to every question. // as for length of pain, everyone is different. Some ppl have short outbreaks, others have more frequent & long term outbreaks. So, it’s possible, especially if you’re not taking care of yourself (stress, triggers, no vitamins/supplements, no antivirals).
  13. Yeah if you still have the sores go get it swabbed & get your blood drawn
  14. So of the 5 outbreaks I have had within the year of being diagnosed (May 2018), none of them ever had clusters of yellow/tan circles, but this time it does. I used a sex toy that was cheap a** bad material but with a condom on top and then the condom popped off, and that night the burning started and 2 days later an outbreak happened and now today I see pus pockets. Is this normal for some with herpes? Normally, I see a red cut or a red cut with a clear bubble looking sore, but never yellow. I hate myself for that sex toy, impulsive decision I made because that would be the 3rd one I have bought on impulse and TRASHED because the idea of toys get me more than the actual toy. SMH and so anyway, I leave for jamaica in a few hours and yea, I'll be there with a freakin OUTBREAK that I TRIGGERED!!!! FML
