well im 19 yrs old. i have genital herpes. found out a year ago about it.
i used to have horrible o.b's at least three times a month for the past 7 months, untill i broke up with my ex and moved out of his house. i know stress can trigger ob's, but i do have a problem that happens every now.
i started my woman monthly deal last week and last time i used tampons i got a yeast infection from them. i went and got check to be on the safe side and they told me not to use tampons.

Take a soak in Epson salts in a warm bath and then when you get out get some corn starch and apply it at least to the outside of your vagina and if you think it will work onher clit try that as well. Also talk to a Pharmaist and ask for some thing called "Demoplasty" sp? Ask for the Blue can not the red can.

This is an freezing and will help you. Also take some corn starch with you to work and when you go out in an old pill bottle and apply it down yonder. The dryer you can keep it down yonderr the better it will feel.

What are you taking for suppressive therapy and at what dosage each day?

Id you are taking acylovio the proper dose is 400 mg twice a day I believe from what I recall. Any thing less will not give you good protection from Ob's. Read the Herpes Handbook as per my signature line and in there it gives the correct dosage but I think I am correct. Also it will work better if you take it as close as possible every 12 hours or as colose as possiible.

That way you will have decreased ob\s ASk any moe questions you may have.
