How do I stop these reoccurring outbreaks

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow H friends,

I was diagnosed with HSV2 last summer. To say it’s been an emotional roller coaster is an understatement!

i have been experiencing  outbreaks continuously each month since my first outbreak and I’m slowly loosing the will to live. It’s not just the outbreak it’s the tingling that takes over my entire body before any sores on my genitals come to the surface.

i have been on suppressive therapy ACV with no such  luck and have now been prescribed Valaciclvir.

i have just finished my first month on this and hey presto another outbreak is in the midst, I’m still taking suppressive treatment. i have read that certain vitamins and supplements can help I have dabbled but get disheartened when nothing works. 

my Gp says I’m just one of those unfortunate folks that will experience regular outbreaks, has anyone been in this position and found anything that works? 

im in the U.K. and I find that there isn’t much info surrounding HSV and support groups seem outdated. 
I recently tried dating again and had to do the dreaded disclosure talk and it didn’t go down very well. My partner said all the correct things at the time but completely disappeared within a week...It’s making me very depressed how am I supposed to get on with my life when I am constantly reminded of a simple action that has changed my life completely.

Wow. I would suggest that you try to adopt a new lifestyle. This includes eating healthy, more vegetables and taking vitamin supplements. Try to exercise daily  and limit stress and depression. The stringer the immune system, the bettet. When I feel depress or stress  , I start watching motivational videos, movies and i have developed a routine that keeps me busy. It Helps me to not focus too much on my status. If you want sexual release, there is always masturbation ( thats if you dont have a problem doing it).

Thanks for your comments. It’s been 2 years since my diagnosis and it seems to have calmed down. I have not had any outbreaks for 3 months, have not needed to take any supplements and am continuing my lifestyle and diet as I did before. My ex took some time to digest the information and realised it wasn’t that much of a bigger deal. But covid had other plans for our relationship. Guess the virus just needed to settle in hopefully that will be the end of the regular outbreaks. I wish a health care professional had told me that things would die down after a couple of years it’s would have made the last two years much less stressful!!
