Thank you very much grace!
Vaginal itching of 4 weeks duration following Acyclovir treatment of a positive Herpes (HSV) culture test. Tests for UTI, Yeast, and other STD's are negative or within normal limits. History: Approximately 3 weeks following unprotected intercourse with a new partner, I developed an ulcerated lesion on my labia minora and another in the vestibule with no other symptoms. I immediately went to an urgent care where the provider that treated me ordered a complete blood test and a urine analysis.
He should have a urethral Gram stain (after having not voided for at least 2 hours) and tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Your evaluation should include a wet mount looking for yeast, trichomonas, bacterial vaginosis (not an STD and not requiring treatment of your partner but a common cause of vaginal discharge) as well as tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia.
urination frequent again, and now an erection problem that has stayed for 3 weeks. I saw a different Dr and was prescribed Acyclovir 400MG 3x day for a week, and 6 weeks of Doxycycline Hyclate 100MG 2x a day (I tested again for herpes exposure and was negative again). I am 14 days into that cycle. He did mention he was wondering if it could be a yeast infection. The inflammation went away in the urethra area, but I am still have very inconsistent/weak erections.
This sex was also at the tail end of my period and involved his finger in my anus, both of which has been connected to greater chance of a UTI for me. I've been taking uristat to control the pain and drinking lots of water/cranberry juice to clear this thing out. That has usually worked with UTIs for me in the past. My main questin is: What are the chances that I could infect a partner right now? How long do I need to wait to have sex again?
I have a prescription for acyclovir but haven't been using it suppressively. Is this a time when it would be worth it for me to start taking it, perhaps in a suppressive does of 400mg 2x day instead of the prescribed 400mg 3x day. Are there side effects/long term effects that I should make me worried about taking this drug too casually? Also, what are the chances that I could infect a partner right now? Thanks for your help!
Your partner needs it too so you both know what you have. Go from there. For the record, acyclovir is a 12-hour dose, not a 4-hour dose. Oral sex is not only not out of the question, it's very low risk for transmission. But you are just getting ahead of yourself with your questions. Find out first if you and your boyfriend actually have herpes and what types you have.
Lost Ezmeralda last night about 11:00 PM.. We really don't have an explanation , she really took a turn for the worst when she got , what the vet thought a UTI.. "Thanks for sharing your life with us, you were a true companion and friend and you will be deeply missed my sweet girl"..
So I have had sex maybe a week ago and a couple days later I started feeling burning when I peed so I thought it was a uti but the more cranberry juice and uti meds I took it didn't help nor did the pain reduce so finally I took a mirror to look and the lining of my vagina is red like a rash and I have white bumps some look like they have been popped oh and there is this discharge it's seems to harden on my underwear, this is really embarrassing and I don't know what's going on and as I tried to
My boyfriend was 2 weeks misdiagnosis at Kaiser receiving antibiotics for chlamydia, gonorrhea, UTI, Yeast infection. After those 2 weeks going to the Hospital every second or third day and being test for "STD" and UTI for different doctors he finished with Herpes Meningitis. He was tested finally for Herpes and had to spend 2 days in the hospital and after it 2 weeks with Acyclovir IV......
When I returned home, the paranoid bug took hold and I went to the doc and asked for acyclovir, which she gave me. At the time, I had no symptoms. Two days later, I started getting UTI-type symptoms (irritated urethra, increased urge to pee, etc.). After two days of that, I went to the doctor again, who said it was possible that since she is likely a carrier, I may have contracted it and the pills meant I only got the urethritis, but no lesions.
On 3/21/07 she had stomach flu,5/24/07 she woke up with a bloody looking eye it's ALWAYS on the same eye (right)on the inner part of the sclera & it never spreads to the other eye,she always says it hurts & it swells up a little. Her pediatrician thought it was conjuvitis & rx Ofloxacin .3% it cleared up in 3 days.
you said antibiotics - was it actually acyclovir or valtrex? also make sure your gyn tests you properly for vaginitis ( bv especially is very common with genital herpes ) as well as you and your partner should seek out type specific herpes igg blood testing. I'd definitely take the time to write a letter of complaint to the clinic you were seen at - call and find out if they have a complaint line to call or find out who the clinic manager is and get their email.
A few years ago I began having problems with ED, pehaps due to high cholesterol but I am able to improve that with ED pill and I don't always need them especailly for masturbation. Lately I have been having a lot of problems climaxing.. I stay hard enough but I just can't get the equipment to pop. I have also had some uti type feelings and some discomfort at the base of my testes (prostate?) Anyone have this? How to overcome it?
My boyfriend and I have been together for 8 months. We have both been regularly tested (but not HSV). Four months ago he was having what he thought was a UTI and asked the doctor to do a full std panel including HSV, just to be safe. While he was waiting for the results, he had a genital outbreak. It was one small lesion which disappeared within two days on Acyclovir. The std panel came back negative for everything except HSV2.
told me they were herpes and prescribed me cipo for the UTI and acyclovir for herpes. The lesions subsided and were all gone by day 2. He tested all STDs for me but forgot to order for herpes. All negative. A month later, I went back and tested for herpes, the IgG antibodies one. Negative for HSV1, but positive for HSV-2 with an index # 2.1. My partner, he's the only partner I've had, tested negative for both HSV 1 and HSV2. I read on this web site that if you're index # is <3.
This past Tuesday, my boyfriend and I tried to have sex but it was very painful for me if he tried to put is entire penis inside of me. Two days before we had had sex and there was no pain so we both assumed that I was just irritated from that time. Just to be cautious, I scheduled an appointment for this past Thursday. Between Tuesday and Thursday, my vagina still felt irritated, I could feel the irritation when I would wipe after going to the bathroom or when initially sitting down.
Is it possible that the virus is just too new to show antibodies yet? Started Acyclovir the next day. Looking for some input on these results and if I should get re-tested at some point. Most importantly - now what?! Should I report the guy to the CDC, since I have not heard from him since?
all negative. I even took a weeks worth of antibiotics and acyclovir (which I did on my own) before being tested for herpes. After about 4 weeks the pain is all but gone but there is still a little redness. If the trend continues, I think it will be gone completely in one or two days. Questions: If it was cancer, would it go away and return to normal like it has? I have an appointment with a urologist next week.
About a week later I started having a painful burning sensation while urinating, and got tested for the usual stuff - UTI, Gonhorrea, Chlymidia, etc. All the tests came back negative, and I was perscribed antibiotics anyway - the symptoms continued. A week later I got something like a pimple on the head of my penis, and then another one, and I went to get tested for HSV.
Would a trial of acyclovir be useful, to see if it helped alleviate my condition?
-Nov 14 I took an immunoblot for HSV1 and 2. HSV 1 was +. HSV2 was negative. I started Acyclovir 800 mg 4x/day and Vit C 1000/day for post-exposure prophylaxis to HSV 2. -As of today Nov 18, I have not noticed any genital/lower back/thigh bumps, blisters, sores, or tenderness. 1. What does my IgM result suggest? 2. Should I worry since I have already tested tested negative twice for HSV 2 and do not have any genital sores yet? 3. Was my mouth sore likely due to a new HSV1? 4.
I went to another doctor and asked her for a prescription for herpes. She gave me acyclovir 2 times a day. I used it for about a month almost every day ( I doubled up on the days I missed).i never had an outbreak until I startted taking the meds. I told my new partner that I had it he said he had it to so I stopped taking it. We stop using condoms. August of this yr I noticed I had a smell down there. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with chlamydia. We both got treated.
my thought was herpes and went to another std clinic for exam, doctor didnt think so but gave 5 day supply of acyclovir 400mg 3x and took herpes test, hiv and urine culture. During the next 4 days things started to dissipate except i got swollen lymph nodes in neck for about 1.5 days, no swollen lymph nodes in groin.From the 2nd week into the 3rd week had lingering symptoms of pins and needles feeling in groin especially when seated, slight burn irritation when urinating. Now I am at 3.

I was diagnosed with herpes (no type) on November 4th I had a tiny lesion on my lower labia majora I went in the next day I had a UTI at the time that I was taking medication for and I also have a history of bacterial vaginitis and yeast infections. My doctor swabbed it prescribed me 10 day acyclovir 3x a day. She also did blood testing which was negative for any antibodys I know this is common when an infection is new the next day my sore was completely gone.
I was put on a bunch of prophylactic antibiotics, and Acyclovir for the herpes. Let me tell you what it was like - it was tremendous, excruciating pain. I think it was due to the fact that I had some tears down there due to the "rough sex" that allowed the virus to enter my body, and cause so much pain. I had ulcers in my perineum area (area between vagina and anus), and at the introitus (at the entry to the vagina). It felt like daggers every time I had to urinate.
I have never seen symptoms until recently and even still I am unsure if these are herpes symptoms due to being diagnosed with UTI. Never had lesions or sores but now I think I might have a lesion but I cant really tell it looks NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING AT ALL like those horrendous pictures from the internet even the mildest cases. QUESTIONS: Could I have went 6 years without having an outbreak? Is this even an outbreak?
