  1. Thanks for replying. I'm currently on 400mg x2 of acyclovir a day, but clearly it isn't working. So, I think I'll take your advice and call the doctor to switch medication. Hopefully, that will do the trick! Thanks so much!!!
  2. Also a 21F in college and hell yes, I agree!
  3. Thanks for replying.. I'm still using acyclovir and have found it's not working very well.. May go to the doctor and ask to switch to valacyclovir!
  4. I bought a diva cup and love it!!! Better for the environment too. Thanks for the advice

  6. Hey all, So, I just need some reassurance.. I was diagnosed with HSV in February and ever since then, I have had consistent outbreaks. Only 3 weeks total have I not had an outbreak (oh, the bliss). I'm just frustrated with the fact that I keep getting them because I eat well (high lysine foods, gluten free, no coffee, sugar and alcohol every so often), exercise a lot as I am in a dance program (and do yoga on the side), and take antivirals, lysine, and lots of vitamins everyday. I also use essential oils on my outbreaks... What am I doing wrong? Is my body just getting used to the virus and figuring out how to fight against it? I've heard that the first 6 months to a year are the worst. So my question is, should I be doing more to stop the outbreaks, or do I just need to be patient for my body to get used to it.. will I ever have a solid month without one outbreak? Is this normal? I'm pretty positive and have come to terms with having it as it has brought a lot of perspective in my life - I just want these damn sores to go away!! If someone could respond that would be amazing. Thanks
  7. Hey everyone, Just wondering if anyone could give me advice on what to do during a period and an outbreak at the same time! What would you recommend tampons or pads? Not sure what to choose. Thanks!!! Have an amazing day!!
  8. I was diagnosed with HSV two months ago and have had constant outbreaks since then (only had one week free, so that's a positive!). Was wondering if there are any dancers on here and how they deal with outbreaks? I recently went a week without an outbreak, but had prodome symptoms. Then last Monday I had two dance classes back to back (and of course I'm wearing tight clothing), so after the dance classes, I had another outbreak and it's still going on because I have had more dance classes throughout the week. Just wondering if any other dancers have advice on how to prevent outbreaks?? I eat healthy, and take lysine, acyclovir 400mg x2, and other vitamins everyday. So, I'm assuming that my outbreaks are due to friction, which kind of sucks because the program that I am taking requires me to dance 4 days a week and I have to wear tight clothes. Oh the joys of herpes, am I right? hahah
