HSV1 vs HSV2 – What’s the Difference Between Oral and Genital Herpes – STD Podcast
And we’re back (again)!!! After the holidays and a long-distance move, the STD Podcast is back up and running!!! Same great content, just a little different scenery – I’m still organizing my office and video motif, but overall, I couldn’t be more pleased, because The STD Project is now in Asheville, NC!!! We’re global, actually, but our office is in the mountains with a scenic and quintessential backdrop to boot. Zero complaints here, and that puts me in a perfect way to continue this advocacy work – everyone wins! To kick off our new series, we’re talking about HSV1 vs HSV2, or the difference between oral herpes and genital herpes. This podcast is being sponsored by Anti-Aging Systems. Since 1991, they have been producing articles, magazines, and conferences to promote and educate the population on how to maintain optimal health as they age. They also provide information on where to safely purchase hard to obtain medicines, nutritional supplements, and bio identical hormones, like BHT. BHT is a potent antioxidant and common food preservative that is also known to treat viruses including herpes. It is believed to work against the virus by potentially damaging the protective layer of the viral cell, in turn making the virus vulnerable to the immune system, which may result in preventing the virus from multiplying and causing outbreaks. If you want to give BHT a try, head over to Anti-Aging Systems and enter code STD at the checkout to a receive 10% discount. What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a Podcast In an effort to cater to short attention-spans (mainly, my own), we keep these podcasts between 5 and 15 minutes in length, roughly. When we have guests on the show, sometimes, they’re a little bit longer, but we know you’re busy. Consequently, we promise to always do our very best to be as concise as possible. Today’s Podcast Today’s podcast runs about 17 minutes in length, and we’re talking about why some folks think there’s a good herpes and a bad herpes, what the differences are between HSV1 and HSV2 (if any), and whether or not we should distinguish between oral herpes and genital herpes.

Herpes Diagnosis – Just Diagnosed with Herpes? It’s Ok – STD Podcast
Anonymous asks about a herpes diagnosis: “Jenelle, how does someone accept having an incurable infection like this? It has been about a month since I have known, and I have been nothing but depressed. I have barely been able to get out of bed most days, and I have quiet often thought about suicide. I just want my old life back. I feel like I can’t tell anyone about this, and I don’t know how I will be able to find someone who is accepting of this condition. I always assumed I would get married and have kids, and this just puts such a roadblock in front of all of that, and I am worried I will never have another relationship or sex ever again. I am going through my second outbreak, and I am just concerned I will always have this reoccur, though I have read some people stop getting outbreaks after a while. I just want to go back to enjoying life how I was, but I am not sure how to get there. I feel like I had my life setup so well to be pretty happy and carefree, and I ruined it by making one stupid decision.” What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a Podcast In an effort to cater to short attention-spans (mainly, my own), we keep these podcasts between 5 and 15 minutes in length.
