"If you have herpes you NEED to read this"
 
   Hello all,
I have come here for support but forget to come back to tell of success. Here is my story quickly and learn it well. I was engaged to a girl 20 years ago who cheated on me and brought me genital herpes. It was a massive infection and DAILY outbreaks. I did what you did, I cried, I spent tons of dough on every folk scam. Bottom line is this: I have taken Famvir for 18 years or so, and it helped some. Over the years I have changed my diet, drink green tea every day, take many supplements but the main one for "us" is Red Marine Algae. Nowadays I am pretty much outbreak free. But let's face it, the outbreak is not the issue here, the issue is the shame, the fear, the uncertainty of how it affects our partners. So let me tell you this, in the 20 years since I have had 3 live in GF and one wife. When I presented all of them with the facts (second date, never later) of the virus and let them make their OWN choice, all of them were 100% fine with it and I have had very active sexual relationships with all of them. I am VERY aware of my condition and follow the rules if I think something is coming and none of them ever caught the virus. As my doc said "herpes is really just a pain in the ass" and he was right. I think if you are with someone who cant accept the situation or makes you feel poorly about it....you need to get out but I think in the end....anybody worth a crap, if you are worth a crap..will deal with it. I will add this, I saw on this site a while back that if you feel an outbreak coming on, you should clean with Purel. I do this followed by Hydrogen peroxide and knock on wood....probably 2 years or so outbreak free. I have a beautiful GF and we have a great relationship so no matter how bad you think it is......it WILL get better and I am the classic "worst case scenario" with daily outbreaks for more then a year and I am doing pretty well. The key is to be honest with your mate. Remember that 25% of all adults have it so it is not as uncommon as you may think.
Good luck!!

   That's a pretty nice story and I am happy all is working out for you. Was just recently diagnosed earlier this year so I am in the beginning stages of trying to handle this. Have my good days and bad days. Didn't find out about my herpes status until I started having the symptoms of post-herpetic neurgalgia (constant burning/pain down there). This is what prompted me to go to the doctor and that is when I found out I was positive for HSV2. Makes me a little upset, because maybe if I knew I had herpes all of this time, then I would have been on antivirals and maybe would have prevented post-herpetic neuralgia from developing.

Pain is pretty consistent. Was even worse in the beginning and still off and on at this time. Hate feeling like there is something constantly going on down there and seeing nothing in the mirror. Your nerves are all over the place and they let you know whenever they feel like that they are not happy. Currently on a daily regimen of acyclovir, but the pain still comes when it wants to. Searched for answers everywhere (including different states) with different doctors and still with no concrete answers or explanation.

Would really like to get to the place where you are at someday. Being comfortable with this virus and happy (and not scared) about meeting someone new. Kind of hard when you feel a constant throbbing shooting or itching pain down there. Would love to take meds for pain, but the side effects can sometimes make the situation even worse.

Really appreciate your honesty with all of the women you have dated. That is the really the best way to go about this and will prevent you so many problems down the road.

Wishing you all the best.

   Hello there,
Again, honesty up front is all that matters. You NEED to let your possible future partner make their own choices. After my divorce a few years back, I had to again dread telling someone new. I had met a girl the day after my divorce and took her out. I have a "tell on the second date rule" BEFORE even the first kiss. While having dinner and we are talking about different stuff, she comments that she met a guy a year or so earlier and he was a bit of a player and she broke it of and told him "I hope you get a raging case of herpes"......talk about taking the wind out of my sails...I felt very ill at that point whereas this was NOW the worst set up for me to have to tell anyone. I dropped her off, and told her she needs to find someone else where as I DO "have a raging case of herpes". She immediately said...that was just a stupid comment, I am not concerned about that if you are not. So we dated a year and a half and it ended for other reasons but man o man, if I could make it through that night....anyone can tell anyone.
One other thing I did not mention before (not sure if you are guy or girl either) but one of the symptoms I used to get very bad was the stabbing pain and itching in my scrotum that I just could not make it go away. I read somewhere Zinc was helpful for this virus and so I started every morning blasting a bit of Gold Bond down my shorts and although did not cure anything, it makes a big difference in the discomfort, it absorbs the perspiration, dries up any weeping sores, and whatever is in the Gold Bond just makes you feel fresher and the "pin" feelings go within a few hours. I still to this day do it, I use the Yellow bottle and get the big ones from BJ'S wholesale club for pretty cheap.
I am about the most stressed person you will meet and I have this under control, and remember when this started my new outbreaks were DAILY for well over a year, I was dating a girl with a sexual addiction, she gave it to me and we continued to have sex, many times with protection some without. I was a stupid kid and believed her when she told me she sometimes causes a reaction on her boyfriends like this due to chemicals in her excretions, but nothing else. So, it was a month or so of me spreading it to every inch of my "area" before I figured it out, broke up with her and started my recovery. I guess my story is a "worst case scenario" and in time you will learn the main symptoms: Frequent and urgent urination, pain in the butt cheeks, pain it the legs, pain in the base of spine, itching in the personal area. Your symptoms will be different which is the freaky part. My symptoms changed every outbreak but there were usually one or two common threads, urination being the main one. Perspective is always important: When children are dying every day of cancer.....who are we to complain of this minor inconvenience...it is about perspective.
Good Luck

   Hi there
You don't have to suffer in silence or put up, shut up. I changed my lifestyle and am now herpes free and enjoying sex again.
The protocol I use is ongoing though.

Neem Oil from the Limda Tree. I consume of teaspoon a day. The taste is foul, so I also drink a mouthful of live yoghurt, shaken in the tub first and then just swallowed down like soup. Then a spoon of the neem oil, just one teaspoon, then I quickly finish the rest of the yoghurt.
Your diet has to be changed first before you start consuming the neem oil. It is simple.

No SUGAR, substitute for manuka honey +10.
No white flour products, chocolates, cakes
eat mainly, roast dinners, sardines, brown bread, red cabbage salad, coleslaw, brockley, for breakfast, oats with honey, nutmeg. make it by boiling kettle and pouring hot water over oats in bowl, add nutmed and honey, give it a stir and put saucer over bowl. go back in 5 mins and add some soya milk.
take dairy out of your diet, except goats cheese, plain live yoghurt, not the creamy one. and cottage cheese.
Eat sardines daily the omega 3 will help to stop outbreaks.
once its in your system, about a week, you can go to eating them 3 - 4 times a week, use the tinned sardines, not in tomatoes, as the tomatoes are acidic.
You can eat rice, potatoes, root veg, veg, salads, fruits. dates,homous, aubergine dip, advocado dip, prunes, apricots. eat these dried fruit as a substitute for sweets.
Try to omit coffee, or at least cut down and carry a small container of honey if you want sugar in your coffee. (BE PREPARED).

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE HAVING AN OUTBREAK WHEN YOU START THIS NEW REGIME:

bath in a small basin or better still use a shower head, wash the are thoroughly, using whatever soap, use antibacterial soap. Then pat are dry, then spray area with 3 or 6% hydrogen pyroxide liquid. 30 mins later, apply neem oil to area. wear cotton underwear, or boxers. Continue this, get diet right, then start taking the neem internally. once the area has heeled, you wont get anymore outbreaks, as long as you quit sugar and pastries, once a month can be a treat. but in time if you follow the diet you will understand and know when your body might get an outbreak. I have not had an out break for nearly 2 years now.

   Forgot to mention, Neem oil is also found to be a natural contraceptive, when put inside the vagina or taken internally, you must not be pregnant when you take neem, When a man or woman takes neem it makes them infertile, when they stop taking neem they become fertile again.......
