  1. I didn’t realize that; I will definitely have to look into Acyclovir. I’m pretty good about eating healthy and getting enough sleep. I could be a little more active; some weeks I get to workout/do more than others. Decisions regarding my future is what stresses me out most..I’ll read that article too. Thanks 😊
  2. Thanks for the insight guys! I thought I was nuts, but I notice zero difference with the Camber valcyclovir. I’m surprised someone else has experienced this too. I originally thought I became immune to Valtrex; never did it occur to me that it could be a change in medicine until recently! Yes I am in the US! East coast. Do they allow those with HSV-2 to take Acyclovir? I for some reason thought it was targeted for those with HSV-1! That’s great to hear it’s cheap. I have decent insurance with good prescription coverage as well. I honestly think my issues are stemming from stress..and if I do anything to exasterbate it, even if my symptoms have subsided for the day (have sex, wear jeans, or ride my horse); well then I’m a goner! 😐 I prefer to stay away from medicine period, but if I can avoid the almost constant irritation, that would be amazing!
  3. Been awhile; I have HSV-2. Was on suppressive therapy with Mylan pharm Valtrex and it worked great. No symptoms but a couple prodome. Moved and took Camber Valcyclovir and it doesn’t work at all. Like AT ALL. Having a hard time getting Mylan around her. Haven’t taken anything really for a year as it doesn’t work, and it seems I have almost constant irritation or itchiness. Don’t want to go back to suppressive therapy or on meds at all but I will. What works for you all?
  4. Do you have HSV-1 or HSV-2? Where do you get the chlorophyll? I really do hate taking meds and like being naturaleeee..I'm willing do try different things for sure!
  5. Glad you're on the tail end of your first OB; I know it's rough! When I was first diagnosed, I was finishing my Masters degree and chose to do suppressive therapy to outweigh the stress I knew I was, and would incur. I had no issues for 7-8 months. 1 outbreak triggered by sex and not taking meds for a couple days, prodome symptoms maybe 2 or 3 times prior. I moved and changed meds/pharmacies and seemed to have bad luck with my new meds so I quit them. I do have to say I do have more OBs than I did while on suppressive therapy. I am a girl too so hormones and sex being a trigger for me play a little more into that. It's all in the individual! I personally have always disliked taking medicine and my prideful self wants to tell myself to get over it and just go naturale..but the other self remembers how awesome it was to never have any problems when on suppressive therapy and I'm diving into that idea again!!
  6. Not a definite but if Valtrex seemed to help, I think that could be a clear answer. I was in denial until like day 2 of taking Valtrex during my first OB. It was a complete 180 and then I knew my answer!
  7. Anyone?? Anyone who's had success on some meds and not others? 😬
  8. No, not since the end of 2017! I just don't allow us to be intimate if I'm having any symptoms. But I do want to try and do suppressive therapy again because I had less symptoms when I did!
  9. I'd give him a little while longer hanging out to see how things go OR just tell him exactly how you feel! Like, "Hey I know the other night you weren't ready for sex, and I definitely respect that and I want you to KNOW I respect that..I also know that a couple months ago you kind of disappeared off the radar and I wasn't sure if it was because of the HSV or what but it hurt my feelings (or made me feel shitty, etc). I just want to know where you stand now and if you want to continue trying to be something and trying to work past this, or if you'll never be ready you ghost me again. I like you and definitely want you, but if it's the latter, I just need to know that so I can move on." Maybe something like that! 😬
  10. It seriously is crazy. The education out there is misleading! They teach you that THIS is what HSV looks like and like these people are like the plague when in all reality? It's common, not all HSV symptoms present the same at all, and that's why so many people don't realize they have it! That sort of information honestly got me in trouble. I was naive and wasn't as careful as I could've been because I thought people knew their status; that they would have clear symptoms and tell you if they had something. Wrong! And even a little more careful that time, I probably still would've gotten it. Maybe I would've known the non-stereotyped symptoms I was having was actually HSV sooner and I wouldn't have been in complete denial. I'm jumping off my soapbox now. They need to change sex education in regards to HSV!
  11. I was diagnosed with HSV-2 in January of 2017. Took 1G of Valtrex or Valcyclovir daily (blue bottle from Mylan Pharmaceuticals). Had 1 OB over the course of 7-8 months and sex had triggered it. Moved a couple months later and I'M JUST NOW CONNECTING THE DOTS! I was taking the same amount but began taking Valcyclovir from a white bottle by Camber pharmaceuticals since I had moved. Never seemed to work as I was having issues once a month or just having prodome symptoms I hadn't had before..so I just quit taking it. I've been taking it episodically but I miss when I literally had NO issues. I hate to take meds period but I'm willing to for this. Could it be the manufacturer change that wasn't working for me? Or did my body get immune to take Valcyclovir?
  12. I'm not sure why but I'm pretty much the same way! Lube helps, and the lube from condoms help, but not always..I still usually have some sort of symptom. It's so damn annoying! Really the only time that I don't have any is if I have period shower sex. Everything is naturally lubed up and steamy. TMI but just trying to help because I literally face the same struggle!!! Lol
  13. I've never let my boyfriend give me oral with an OB, because well..you sure as hell don't feel like it! But we've been together for almost 2 years and he's done so with no barrier and he's not shown any symptoms. Be in tune with your body and both of you all be on the same page, and you'll be ok. He says I'm worth the risk and we are fully aware of what could or could not happen!
