I don't want to take away from your question.. but I am almost 100% positive that I have genital hsv-1. No other symptoms but every other month or so I get a raw patch on my clitoral hood after sex... it's really weird. Its happened 3-4 times within the past 7-8 months. What are your outbreaks like???
I've been tested countless times over the past 8 months, hsv-2 negative. But I've done so much research it's crazy... So just from talking to people w herpes/doctors/&research I feel like your more frequent outbreaks could honestly just be due to all of the **stress**/depression PLUS the antidepressants itself
hi vaginaprobzx100. my outbreaks i expect look like typical outbreaks. in order to get diagnosed though i had to have a western blot done. the regular test was consistently negative. I've had this for 10 years so i know how it behaves. it is MOST DEFINITELY more active when SSRI's or 5-htp are involved. in fact, way down on the list of side effects for celexa under uncommon is "herpes outbreaks". it's not my imagination. i've gone back and forth with these meds 4 or 5 times, and it never fails.
I just started Lauricidin. It’s monolaurin. It seems to be helping.
But Zoloft has definitely made my outbreaks more frequent.
