Female Herpes Prodrome Symptoms Question????

Recommended Posts

I have had herpes for years and years and in an effort to know my body better and not spread it to my boyfriend I have a few questions about Prodrome Symptoms in women. I got herpes when I was 19, so in my opinion I was very young, un-educated and extremely irresponsible. I never cared about "knowing my body" I just told my partners, insisted on condoms, and avoided sex with an outbreak. Now I am 29 and starting to want to understand my body and what it is telling me. I have read the handouts on this forum about the symptoms, I know it says burning, itching, and tingling are signs that an outbreak or shedding might be coming. But I am so paranoid that sometimes even razor burn or irritation when shaving down there can send my mind racing into thinking it's shedding or becoming an outbreak. I know I'm being silly but with getting older and beginning a more serious relationship and wanting a family I think I owe it to myself, my boyfriend and future babies to get to know what's happening with my body. I would love any advice on your experience with Prodrome symptoms... How did you pinpoint them to what they are? when, where, what sensations, did something usually trigger them, same time every year? Every month? Any advice would be helpful.


Thanks :)

Im still understanding my own body but what I typically feel is a sting around my ob area. When I feel this sensation I take medication. This occurs monthly and sometimes twice. I have not paid attention to my triggers but maybe I will next time.


I understand the paranoia, but just remind yourself its not always your hsv.
