Newly diagnosed with HSV1

Hi, I am a 22 year old female that was recently diagnosed with HSV1..Pretty awesome, huh? AT first I took it pretty hard, but am now slowly learning to except it through reserach and reading success stories. The primary outbreak I experienced, was the worst pain I have felt in my life. I had atleast 20 sores down there and developed cold like symptoms with swollen groin lymph nodes, body aches, etc..It was awful.

It's been about 3 weeks since the initial oitbreak and I feel like I am begining to get sick with swollen lymph nodes in the groin and throat and generally feeling like the begining of sickness is coming on..Could this be due to the fact that I just started my period and because it is a recent infection? Does this happen to anyone else?

Re: Newly diagnosed with HSV1

I remember that sometimes I used to get itchy around my period so I would just pop some valtrex in hopes to ward off an OB if that is what was happening. You may want to ask your doctor for a script so that you can do that instead of waiting to see if it is going to turn into a full blown outbreak.

Re: Newly diagnosed with HSV1

Ugh, I know the feeling.

I'd take some medicine just in case. My doctor gave me some pills (i forget the fancy name) but they have m123 printed on them and told me if I ever feel like I'm about to get an outbreak to take a few of them. Maybe you should see if your doctor could call some of those in for you? They are only 10 dollars per bottle
