36, female. Diagnosed 2019, HSV 1 and 2. Valacyclovir. 500Mg Daily or 1000Mg Daily, Occasionally 2000Mg.
High-Stress Life, managing with therapy. Combat PTSD. Sensitive Immune System.
SEVERE FIRST OUTBREAK:
Didn’t have a cluster of bumps but instead had deep large bumps beneath the surface.
All on my Vulva and in my Vagina, around my anus but no other surface.
The only erupted surface sore was between my anus and vagina.
The Pain was Excruciating, especially when I peed. Felt like a knife.
When I got it I had very rough sex so I think the Virus got deeper as a result.
Needless to say, I regret sleeping with this toxic guy.
At the time of my 1stOB, I was negative for all other STI and infections.
Since I got it I have had constant Prodrome Symptoms though it ebbs and flows:
A constant burning irritation on my Vulva.
It moves around but never fully goes away.
I have NOT had a visible sore since my first outbreak.
Only Redness and a razor-burn sensation.
Especially if I Masturbate or have sex.
My new partner also has HSV 1 and 2.
Occasionally, over the years, I have had a Yeast Infection or UTI or BV which I treated.
So those do not always account for the burning as far as I can tell.
I am a clean person but my stress is high due to PTSD and my Job.
When I am aroused I feel deep sharp nerve pain in my Vulva.
Especially a deep painful throbbing after the climax.
When I have a UTI or a Worse Herpes Flare up the feeling of needing to urinate also triggers sensitivity in my clitoris so I get this painful horny feeling. It’s horrible.
Arousal hurts. But the herpes Flare up activates the nerves so I feel painful sensitivity.
Urinating and needing to pee hurts.
I think the virus has embedded in the nerves of my clitoris so all arousal causes herpes pain.
How you encountered these symptoms? I assume the severity is herpes embedded deep in the nerves? Is there any hope for this?

I have not encountered anyone with these symptoms related to recurrent infection, no. Never.
So just to be clear – you said you have HSV 1 and 2 based on a blood antibody test or a swab test? Has anyone swabbed during these recurrent symptoms (I know they weren’t sores)? If not, they should be. I feel like you are attributing these symptoms to herpes but we really don’t know about that, do we?

I’ve tested positive for HSV 1 and 2 on many occasions. Blood anti-body test each time.
Though I’ve only broken out in sores once.
I thought Herpes has prodrome symptoms that don’t always turn into blisters. May be only a rash.
So the first outbreak was completely odd if it was Herpes? so perhaps something else? Another virus. The gynecologist I saw at the time of outbreak examined it. And did swab and blood tests and said it was Herpes so that’s the basis of my assumption.
My general care dr suspected it was an anomalous case of shingles showing up in a wierd place. Perhaps triggered with Herpes. I also have tested positive for shingked as well. Not sure about that but I will go see them again. Do more blood work.
But yeah seemed odd for Herpes. As far as I’ve read.
So another Virus it seems.
I’ve been viewing it as a virus though I don’t understand how it’s working. Or which strains.
So perhaps Herpes Hsv1 and 2 in particular is not the core problem?
Viruses seem to be quite the ever growing field of study. Perhaps I shall submit myself to science.
Thank you for your response.

You said you were positive for HSV 2 by swab test? Or do you know actually? If you could obtain those results, it would be helpful to know for sure. Do you have the numbers associated with the positive HSV 1 and 2 blood antibody tests? And were they IgG or IgM? You can share them with me here
And no recurrences orally or genitally?
Shingles could happen genitally though quite uncommonly and it would not be “triggered” by HSV.
Everyone who has ever had chicken pox is vulnerable to getting shingles.
