Just been given aciclovir 2 a day for 6 months. Has anyone else tried this method and was it effective?
HSV2 suppression therapy: Just been given aciclovir... - BASHH
Yes. Been on them 2 years now. Can't bring myself to come off them as they have given me a small amount of confidence back. The only time I felt an outbreak coming on was when I used a sun bed. Upped the dose for a few days then just went back to 2 a day. Just makes you feel like you can live your life again without obsessing about it as much.
Thank you. Can I ask if you have a boyfriend? Has it prevented him from getting HSV? If he already has it do you use protection?
I caught it from a cold sore on his mouth that hadn't actually become visible. That means he won't catch it on his genitals as he already has it on his mouth, so no we don't use protection. Have a look at the sphere web site... that explains everything a bit better.
In all honesty I'm not convinced our relationship will last but I can't cope with the thought of having to tell someone else just yet!
I see, does that mean you have type 1? I didn't think that type had many outbreaks!? Will check the website out thanks. I know exactly what you mean. My girlfriend is the only person that knows
No type 2... he obviously caught type 2 when the herpes was passed onto him. You can get both types in both places... type 1 breaks out more on your mouth... type 2 breaks out more on genitals apparently... lucky me!!
That web site is really good... factual... the clinic I was diagnosed recommended it to me and gave me a leaflet from them.
Hi I would like to look at the sphere website but can't find it. Do you know what I would google?
Also Lizbeth4....... can you clarify..... if my BF has HSV1 on his mouth he wont catch genital Herpes from me?
Tried lit,makes it a lot less servers, but still get a outbreak every3rd week.gone from sex every day to none in 2 years since I got diagnosed
Salt baths, help build up your own natural immunity. Have at least 2 a week good prevent and if u are having on to clear up quicker.
