  1. I just had lab work done for my physical, and I believe the 1000mg of Lysine I take daily with my Valtrex has caused my calcium level to go up and possibly my cholesterol. I read that this could happen.
  2. I found out I had this in July 2018, and been having constant outbreaks ever since. Don't know when I got it and my husband probably has it too now, because I never knew. I'm assuming in the past 2 years from an affair I had. He doesn't have any symptoms, but I can't seem to have a good conversation with him about having GHSV1. Been together for 30 years, and he doesn't understand, and might divorce me because of it, since I've cheated on him in the past. It's so depressing my life has changed like this. I'm on Valtrex every day with lysine and monolaurcidin and still get OBs every week. I guess the only positive thing is my husband can't perform like he use to, so I only give him oral. Pretty sad!!!
  3. Yes I’ve been on 1g Valtrex daily and taking Lysine. I told the nurse last week at my gyn’s Office that I feel OBs still every week and she was like well that’s the only thing he prescribes and I didn’t even get to speak to him on the phone. I’m starting Lauricidin 3x a day because I’ve read many people have had good results with it, so we’ll see. I hope you’re doing better.
  4. Well, for me so far it sucks. I feel like something is coming on every few days. I've been married a long time and don't remember having these symptoms until I was diagnosed, but only through a blood test, because I had a negative culture. I was HSV1 positive, so I assume I have it down there. I cheated on my husband and have had multiple STD tests in the past, but never had anything positive, so don't know how long I've had this, and my husband said he was tested, and doesn't think he has anything, but I told him those tests didn't include HSV. I told him I was positive for HSV1, might have it down there, but he didn't really think about what I was saying. We hardly have vaginal sex, because he has issues now of holding an erection long enough, but I do give him oral. My BF hasn't been tested for anything, and he never thinks he could have something, and he's cheated on his wife in the past. I know it's wrong to be doing what I'm doing, but since I told the BF about my blood test, we really haven't had sex either, just oral, so that's basically fading too, but he's in denial about anything. I could kick myself at my age for getting this.
  5. I think menopause brings on more of my UTIs and I could have had a milder case of a diverticulitis flare-up that I get at times, so not harping on it too much. It is what it is. Last year though I did have a combo D flare up with a kidney infection. I just know now I focus on all my symptoms if it's an OB or not, because evn with daily suppression meds, I still feel like it's going on but in a milder way. Frustrating, lucky you had a lot of sex. I haven't had any since I was diagnosed.
  6. I get that feeling sometimes like I have a UTI coming on, but when I get tested, it's negative for any bacterial growth, so now I wonder about this, if I've had this longer than when first diagnosed about 6 months ago, if it's from HSV. Also, I just got over a nasty UTI this passed weekend with high fever of 101.6, lower ab and back pain. My primary put me on antibiotics, and had to get bloodwork and urine culture. My blood work came back great, but waiting on the culture results. If it's negative, could the herpes bring on UTI infections?Just some things I wonder as well and would I have had such a bad outbreak?
  7. I've been taking 1000 mg of Lysine, oregano oil, and 500 mg of Zinc.
  8. I just asked a question regarding Valtrex. I was having some occasional burning and slight itch at times even being on 1 gm of Valtrex everyday. I don't know why I keep getting these symptoms.
  9. Does anybody know if Valtrex can give off prodome symptoms or am I just having continuous outbreaks? I thought suppressive therapy was suppose to help ward off outbreaks. I've been on it now for little over 2 months.
  10. I was diagnosed 5 months ago and taking 1000mg of Valtrex and Lysine, oregano oil every day and I am still getting constant OBs. It's very frustrating and don't know if I'll ever be able to have sex again or even want to at this point.
  11. If a woman had oral HSV1 in her mouth, could she transmit it to the man giving oral? I know vice versa it can happen. Also, can the woman get it genitally after giving the man oral then having sex?
  12. Are most HSV1 transmissions to the woman’s genitalia due to the partner having it orally? I read that men don’t get GHSV1 as easily compared to women.
  13. I don't really know when I got HSV, but never had any symptoms until this past June. I was treated for a UTI and another time for a diverticulitis flare up. I was having an affair for over 3 years, and never had any of these symptoms like my butt was burning, pain in my left hip and leg, sciatic pain, then UTI symptoms, tingling and some pain. My boyfriend told me to get checked because he had a UTI, like I've been tested for STDs in the past because I've had 4 children, but nothing ever came back positive. I don't think my husband has cheated, so don't know if it's from him. Our marriage has always been crazy for 30 years. The BF, who is also married, has never been tested for anything and has cheated way before me. Anyway, my lgg test came back positive for HSV 1, with greater than 37 count antibodies, and an lgm recent infection over 4. I also had a swab done of a lesion couple months ago that was negative, but my gyn said it looked like herpes. I'm so afraid to tell my husband, because I've cheated couple times way back in the day. Now, I've been having continuous OBs since June and taking Lysine and Valtrex every day. I don't know what else to do. I feel like I never want to have sex again. I feel l guess I'm being punished now.
