I have not had any outbreaks since then (that was about 2 months ago). Is it possible that some people only have one outbreak and never again? The guy I got it from says he has never had an outbreak, but I know it was him because I haven't been with anyone else. And a friend of mine has it and has several outbreaks a year and she has had it for many years.
So, is it possible to only have one outbreak and never another one?
Sorry to hear of your diagnosis but it looks like you are handling it well.
I joined the board back in may when i found out i was positive for hsv2. I had the most confusing blood tests but i know i had to have it because my now ex husband was tested too and he is also positive.
I believe i've had OB's for years because my test results seem to show i had this for quite awhile. Still don't know what quite awhile could be. Someone here, said i had it awhile after i posted my results. I couldn't believe it until i saw the blisters and the itching. The dr. thought it was just a yeast infection. But then, i started having the feeling down below like a cut and then i would feel so drained. I know i've had that feeling like a cut before, but i never knew it could be herpes. You see, my ex husband and i got tested 3 yrs after marriage for everything. This was 9 yrs ago. When you say everything, back then, they may have only tested for gnorrhea, syphilis, HIV, and AIDS but not herpes. That's why now you have to be specific and most drs. probably will include herpes with the other tests. I know this dr. i went to, did. anywho, our results back then were negative. But i can't find them, and I don't know for sure if they tested us for herpes. If they did, that means, one of us caught it from kissing someone or having sex outside the marriage. I know i never cheated to catch this and i'm not that quick to kiss ppl, not even on the cheek. But who knows.
Now, it's december and i've been trying everything 'healthy' to get rid of it. I had promised myself i would stick to a healthy regimen that would consists of cell food, liquid minerals, tea tree oil mixed with olive oil, DMSO liquid, and anything else that maybe a 'cure'. I wanted to get retested back in Oct. but i didnt' because i kept having sex with my ex husband. So if i did get rid of it at one point, i caught it again. lol
I know it sounds crazy to think you can get rid of it, but there was a lot of info. on the web that most ppl couldn't benefit from by saying, there is a 'cure' or at least, a remedy. Everyone just has to stay educated and make their own choices.
Me, i haven't had the blisters around the vjay-jay area but it feels like something close to the anal area. i still have some itching, but i don't if i'm just being paranoid. I mean, i don't think i've had a constant outbreak from april until now.
