Just a few Questions
Hi everyone I'm newly (sort of) diagnosed with genital herpes so I'm assuming I have HSV-2. I found out I had it in April of this year after suddenly having an OB. My boyfriend whom we guess I got it from (he's the more experienced one of us) just recently (last month) had his 'first' OB, not sure if it really was or if he's just never had sores before. Anyways since being diagnosed I constantly have OB's and now I've been put on Valacyclovir 2x a day when having an OB and 1x a day when not. I would love to find something that would help better than this, it doesn't seem to help at all. We just had a baby in January so I'm still taking prenatal vitamins and have an IUD (Mirena). We do in the future want at least two more children so if anyone has any positive stories of having children after diagnosis with out having a C-section or passing on the disease I would love to hear them.
Any natural ways to help with the very often OB's I have? That isn't ridiculously expensive.
Any positive stories of vaginal birth after diagnosis?
Also can we have sex during an OB without making the other have an OB? We never have but that's usually the time when I want to feel loved the most.
Can we give each other oral sex when neither of us have an OB? What are the chances of contracting HSV-1 from doing that?
Currently I load myself down with Vitamin C, drinking as much orange juice as possible. My prenatal vitamins seems to help a lot too, more than the Valacyclovir.
