When does it stop hurting?
I was just today diagnosed with Herpes. I was not told 1 or 2 and do not know the difference. I was given an antiviral to take. It just hurts so much to pee. I apparently have a bladder infection as well.

My question - When does it stop hurting? How long do you have to wait till it goes away? Does it ever really go away? I read on here people saying they have 1 or 2 episodes a month. I will kill myself if I have to go through this again.

Can somebody please answer my question. Make a comment. Tell me to bug off. Something! I feel so alone.

I went through a period of having outbreaks every 5 weeks. I did/do have a more severe case of HSV2. my doctor put me on an antiviral med that I could take daily to help supress the outbreaks. After a month or so, the outbreaks had lessened. And after a year... well I haven't had another In over a year now. In Most normal cases, the first year could consist of 3-4 outbreaks then lessens every year. Some people have 1 outbreak then never again have another. U and ur doctor can discuss an effective treatment for u. Hope I eased ur mind a little.

when you ask a new question under your original post, it bumps it right back to the top for all to see.

our read before posting post on the forum goes over the guidelines for posting here on the forum and asks everyone to keep all their questions in one post. when you make multiple posts then I have to take the time to go back and read EVERY SINGLE POST you've made previously which really takes up a lot of my time. since this is all volunteer here and free for all to use, anything to make it easier for the folks who volunteer their time and expertise here is greatly appreciated :)

Herpes can be a pain in the butt, but for the most part it's not that bad. I've had herpes for 2yrs with only 2 outbreaks, so I guess I'm doing good. I would say it takes about 3 days before your med will kick in, so be sure to drink lots of water and eat healthy. By the way, I do not take meds everyday.

I'm 19 and the doc looked at my penis and said he's sure it's herpes, I think I only had it for a week and have a group of white heads under my penis that don't hurt unless they are touched with forced. I don't feel any pain as of now but I'm thinking I'm at the beginning stages of an outbreak and will feel pain soon? I'm scared of my own body right now. Anybody think they can tell me what stage I'm in because I see 1 sore but have no pain??
