  1. Hi I have had regular outbreaks in the past, but since I have been on suppressive therapy I haven’t had an outbreak. It. Just be from friction, definitely don’t look like paper cute, more skin tears in the form of small blotches of red. thanks for the advice 🙂
  2. Hi all. I have HSV- 2, and quite often when I have sex I get a few red areas appear on the penile head where the skin has torn. Is this a symptom that is associated with HSV-2, or would you say it isn’t using enough lubricant? many thanks for your help.
  3. Many thanks for the info. I was previously having regular outbreaks, although I am single and not sleeping with anyone so I’ll see how I get on for abit! Many thanks again
  4. Hi. I have just come to an end of my first 6 month suppressive therapy, 2 x tablets daily for 6 months. During the 6 month period, I had no outbreaks at all. Previous to taking them, I had regular outbreaks. Would you recommend going back on the treatment straight away, or stop to see how my body has reacted to the treatment? Many thanks.
  5. Hi. I am a male so may differ slightly in terms of symptoms experienced, however I have had HSV2 for four years ago now. For about 18 months I had outbreaks pretty much all the time, I went about 5 days without one and then it would hit me hard. I understand how you feel, as I experienced what you did, however the best thing I did is spoke to the sexual health clinic, and asked to go on the daily suppressive therapy. I don’t know if you’re taking this daily? Maybe they need to increase your dose? I have been taking tablets for 6 months daily now, and I haven’t had one outbreak. I don’t get affected by the virus now (touch wood it continues), and I have found it has given me a lot more confidence in disclosing. I hope this helps you somewhat. Stay positive, it does get better.
  6. Thanks for the info, I read through one of your ebooks which helped me gather information! I disclosed to my new dating partner on Friday, I was able to fit it into a conversation previously that I wanted to make her aware of something on the weekend. When I raised the topic, she was extremely nervous about what I was going to say. I explained to her that it was important for me to tell her. All went well, but I am picking up that she has changed her communication tone and gone abit distant. I know it’s only been a couple of days, and maybe my mind is playing tricks on me l, how do you recommend going about this situation? thanks
  7. Hi all. I am looking for abit of advice please, I was diagnosed with HSV-2 a few years ago, and I feel it affected me a lot. I haven’t slept with anyone since, however I have just gone back in to the dating world and have met a lady, we have a great connection and have met up five times now. I feel we are nearing the next step, and it is my duty to explain to her that I have the virus. Would anyone be able to offer me any advice on the best way to raise the subject please? Many thanks!
