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?
