Patient Comments: Genital Herpes - Experience

Question:

Please share your experience with genital herpes, for example, symptoms and medications that help decrease outbreaks.

Comment from: Ted, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: July 10

I have had genital herpes since 2015. The symptoms are a strong urge for sexual intercourse and later will l be painful urination. I'm not taking any medication as my immune system helps to heal. During this period I make sure that I avoid any sexual encounter. The blisters do not need to be punctured, leaving them undisturbed helps to heal fast.

Comment from: Me, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: September 19

With genital herpes I had vaginal itching, trouble urinating, burning during urination, blisters in genital area, tiredness, not feeling well, and feeling depressed and lonely.
