I would like to update you all with my experience so far. I have had genital herpes for about 8 years. The first 6 months to a year was rough. I didn't have anything as bad as the pictures you see online so couldn't figure out for sure what I had. Based on more research I had done online, I figured I had herpes but took quite a few doctors and wrong medicines to get the official yes. :-) I also did follow up with a blood test which came positive. After those initial couple years the virus went dormant and would show up every 3 to 4 months at which point I'd take a three day course of valtrex as soon as I had a tingle, and it would go away typically without even a blister. In addition if I'd get any bump/blister it would be in the same spot and at the most two more bumps close by in a line. I must add that I immediately cut any Sugar
on the first signs of the virus. As I've always noticed a fast direct link to severity of OB to sugar.
Around Jan 30th I got the symptoms and took the dose. However it didn't get better even after the three days. So I started Urine Therapy after coming across some testimonials on this forum. (I was familiar with UT, but still grossed out by it.) I started drinking midstream about 1/8th to 1/4 cup every morning. I waited till I finished up with my period and then started UT (even though I'd taken the last dose of my medicine the night before). I didn't have any problems drinking it, it wasn't very salty as I expected. I was already on a good herpes friendly diet and have been vegetarian most my life already so maybe that's why it wasn't so bad when I compared it to eating flesh. Anyhow, I started taking it and it got way way worse. I got scared. I hadn't read the posts carefully enough where some testimonies share the fact that it may get a little worse before it gets better. Well, I didn't know what to attribute the worseness that was occurring to. I didn't think much of the UT because I figured if it went in once before and I put it back in it shouldn't cause that much havoc.
So I started getting bumps in places that I never did like near the vagina area and the opposite vaginal lip instead. And my back was sore and painful. Because I had to still do my job I figured I'd give my body some help by taking the medicine again. Well took the medicine again for 3 days while still doing UT. I know your not supposed to do UT with meds but I was like I need all the help I can get.
I did notice that the bumps didn't blister up as usual and didn't spread like linear rather were singular in different spots which was unusual. It seemed to heal faster. It definitely healed faster than the OB that started before I started UT and was just on the medicine. Given the healing per episode was faster it seemed like it took forever since another one somewhere else would appear. I did notice that my lymph nodes were swollen for a very long time and very very sore even when no bumps were present. The outbreak areas had went a way maybe 3 days before and finally lymph node swelling and soreness went away as of February 3rd. The longest running outbreak I've had since the first year or possibly ever.
So sorry I cannot give you a definite yes of whether it helped or not. But my gut tells me it made it worse so that I could get better. I feel the outbreak areas healed faster. I'm writing this as to help anyone. When I was searching I wanted more detail. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to tell us about his/her experience. I'll try to give an update, but if I don't come back and give one feel free to notify me and request an update. Also as a side note on Feb 2nd my dad gave me tulsi tea and I had triphala which I feel seemed to help the soreness. I'm still doing UT, but don't know if it's making a difference in my body or not yet. I do know that it was after some prayer that I came across this forum. I also made sure to speak only victory over my body aloud and thank god for my restoration even if I felt bad. That helped too.
Good luck and happy healing!
