Posted: Tue Jan 16, 2007 9:53 pm Post subject: HERPIES & VALTREX
Im sure all 1 of you reading this has seen the std controll medication advertised on tv and radio over the last couple of years called valtrex right...yea that one...you know the one that "prevents" herpies outbreaks!!! well i had a epiphany during one of these moving advertisements and i realised....YOU TRULLY CANNOT ENJOY LIFE UNTILL AFTER YOU GET HERPIES!!! or so the commercial portrays..wow so you mean bike rides through the countryside, yoga, sunset walks on the beach, and such are meaningless unless you have a uncurable std??? wow what a moving and special time it must be!! and what made me laugh even more at the end of the commercial was the health warnings..1 that really got me states...To avoid a potentially serious complication, tell your doctor if your immune system is not normal because of advanced HIV disease...(to hell with your opinion doc. about my hiv..i just dont want these damn sores affecting my sex life!!) bone marrow or kidney transplant. Common side effects include headache, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, dizziness, cold, and sore throat..( and lets not forget about those pesky little sores you might of forgot about beacuse remember There is no cure for herpes, and even with treatment, it may be possible to spread herpes. VALTREX may not prevent all recurrences). so remeber even though that hot guy or girl at the mall may look safe remeber Genital herpes affects everyone differently. For some, it's a minor matter. For others, it can cause a number of concerns, including problems with self-esteem or feelings of isolation. Sexually, it can affect one's sense of freedom. Some people experience a decrease in sexual interest around the time of diagnosis—feelings that often center on the fear of spreading genital herpes to a partner. These concerns may be worse if the person is experiencing frequent outbreaks. Many of these concerns may be more intense during the first few months after being diagnosed. Later, for many people, these feelings tend to fade. Over time, people find that they can enjoy sex, function well, and have as healthy a sex life as they had before being diagnosed.
