I don't know how it is for men by any means. For women, when having an outbreak can different parts of your body be affected? My last outbreak my thigh was hurting just like where my outbreak was. It was the same kind of pain. I've noticed that it's happened before and I did know if there's a link and something that is common? I don't really know how to explain this so I hope that this came out pretty clear to understand what I'm asking.View Thread
Does anyone know where to get a lot for less and with no insurance? I take valtrex but only when i have an outbreak. I'd rather take it everyday but with no insurance i cant. the last time i got meds it was from canada pharmacy for $130ish and 30 pills. Does anyone know where to possibly get more for the same price or less?View Thread
That's what I thought. I'm kind of talking to someone and the hardest thing for me to do is say to him look i've got herpes. then the whole not knowing when, how long to wait how to say it. Well anyway this guy that I"m talking to we hung out for a little bit a week ago and there was definite kissing going on not on my cha cha. When i first found out I guess i missed it or something but I checked again and it said kissing. Well it's an STD so I know that it has to do w sex obviously. He was freaking out bc he kissed everywhere else but there and it had me curious and just needed to be reaffirmed that unless if there's an outbreak (for sure) and in the area then it's all good. Thank you!!View Thread
I know that this is probably asked a million times but Ive got a question bout kissing. How can HSV2 be spread through kissing? Is it only in the effected area and during an outbreak or if you were to just go up to someone and kiss them could they get? I thought that its only during an outbreak and in the effected area. I need to be set straight.View Thread
Thank you so much for that. When I have an outbreak I lose my freakin mind!! I honestly feel like I'm alone in this even though I know that I'm not. It's hard having to open up at the time to say oh hey by the way i have herpes and that's the end of that. Thank you again for that.View Thread
Short and to the point: after a very bad relationship of lies and betrayals it's been 4 years now with HSV2. It'd be nice to be able to relate to someone and vice verse. It's nice talking to one of my close friends but it's not really the same because she doesn't really get what I'm going through. She keeps saying things to me about support groups and I guess after a zillion times of her suggesting them to me I'm trying to look for ppl (gender doesn't matter) to relate to. Any suggestions would be appreciated.View Thread
