Helps People Identify Herpes Symptoms

June 01, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ -, an online dating site for people living with chronic sexually transmitted infections has, in an effort to help people stay informed about such diseases, set out to help people become aware of some of the symptoms of herpes. Learn more about this illness and what can be done to minimize its impact at the following link: What Are Herpes Symptoms.

“In most cases, people with herpes do not show any symptoms and thus will not know if they are infected—unless tested,” says Meetpositives. “It is common for people to get infected with herpes and not know it. This is largely due to the lack of symptoms. There are many people who have confused herpes symptoms with the flu, ingrown hair and pimples. Symptoms of herpes will come and go but that does not mean that the infection is gone. It is still possible to spread the herpes virus even in the absence of symptoms.”

When symptoms do show up, they usually include a burning sensation when urinating, difficulty urinating, pain, itching, sores around the genitals or mouth, swollen glands in the throat, under arm and pelvis areas, achiness and fatigue, fever, chills and headache. When symptoms show up, it is referred to as an outbreak, initial herpes or the first episode. This usually occurs between 2 and 20 days of initial infection but may take years. The first outbreak usually lasts between 2 and 4 weeks before the symptoms disappear. The virus then remains in the body and causes occasional outbreaks. The symptoms differ slightly in men and women but there are many similarities.

Dating with herpes, as with any other sexually transmitted infection, can be difficult or even frightening. Meetpositives seeks to help people meet others who live with similar conditions in a safe space that is free of judgment. “Our members understand you, understand your fears and look forward to feeling normal again,” the site says. “Don’t let HSV1 or HSV2 (genital herpes) stop you from meeting someone special. It’s not your fault for being positive—you are still in control of your happiness, Meet Positives and never have the talk again. Learn more about your condition from others who have experienced the same feelings. Get the latest information about a possible cure for herpes, vaccination and treatment options. Read member herpes drug reviews, side effects and success stories. Meet others who understand what you are feeling and are also looking to move on with their lives.”

Herpes is more common than most people are aware. Over 40 million people live with the condition but only a few know they are infected. One in five people in the United States alone live with the disease. Genital herpes has also become the most prevalent sexually transmitted infection in recent years. Those who are living with herpes will be glad to know they are not alone, however, as there are others living with the disease due to the fact that it has no cure. Notably, many of them live fulfilling and happy lives.

There are multiple stories on from people living with Herpes describing how they discovered they had the disease and how it has changed their lives. “My initial diagnosis for HSV2 virus was 10 years ago,” says one member. “At first, I thought it was acne as this is what it looked like. After a period of less than a week, there was a cluster of lesions around my genital area and this became frightening for me. I called my family doctor and got an appointment. I cannot forget this day because as I was standing there, he examined my groin and said “this looks like herpes.” My heart sank and I started feeling like I was losing my breath. It’s been 10 years now. I am divorced. I accepted my fate and, surprisingly, the happier I got, the less frequent the outbreaks got. Herpes might be a bad infection to get but living happily is possible. Keep in mind that it is an infection that can be managed well and treated.”

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Jul 9, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Cowboys render coin toss mix-up moot, throttle Rams 44-21

Jul 9, 2020

ARLINGTON, Texas — Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys turned “much ado about nothing” over the coin toss into “win and they're in” next weekend. Prescott threw two touchdown passes after his confusing exchange with referee Walt Anderson made many think the Cowboys forced themselves to kick off to start both halves, and Ezekiel Elliott ran for two scores in a 44-21 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Cowboys (7-7) ended their second three-game losing streak of the season, and the defending NFC East champions stayed even with Philadelphia atop the division with a showdown looming next...

Draghi stepped in during euro's darkest hour

Jul 9, 2020

FRANKFURT, Germany — Mario Draghi leaves as head of the European Central Bank credited with having rescued the eurozone from disaster with a well-timed phrase and bold action to back up his words. He expanded the bank's arsenal of crisis-fighting tools with new and unconventional policies, measures that he and others say helped end a financial crisis in 2010-2012 and create millions of jobs in the 19-country monetary union. Yet the closing days of his term have hardly been a victory lap. His departure is accompanied by an unusually public dispute among ECB board members over stimulus policies he pushed...
