Infections of viral often atypical "under the guise of" other diseases, so often have difficulties in their timely diagnosis. Herpes in women is characterized by periods of exacerbation of clinical symptoms and subsided, while the person remains a carrier of this type of virus for life.


What affects the appearance of the symptoms of herpes

Once the herpes virus got into the human body, clinical manifestations are not immediate. It is proved that there are even sex differences affecting the duration of the incubation period of the disease. In men, the symptoms appear earlier than in women. Herpes incubation period can range from one, two days to twenty days or more. If we talk about the average duration of this period, it is determined in twelve days.

Herpes symptoms in women often coincide with the beginning of the menstrual cycle. This fact may explain why episodes of herpes infections are more common in women. For a woman, the physiological changes that occur during menstruation, compared with the natural state of provocation. Herpes in the month appears in the form of an exacerbation. Within a few days before the start of the period, when to begin menstruation, it appears discomfort, itching, burning sensation in the mucous membranes. In the future, there are clear signs of herpes Symptoms of herpes - sometimes you can not even notice  Symptoms of herpes - sometimes you can not even notice
 , Bubbles are formed. Those patients who suffer with herpes, noted that during the menstrual cycle symptoms of the disease have different symptoms.

Herpes during menstruation may manifest severe itching, so the diagnosis is recommended that women check inspection after the menstrual bleeding. Very often, the herpes occurs in the form of co-infection with other infectious diseases, so it is important timely diagnosis. Herpes after a month will have a characteristic clinical manifestations, contributing to the correct diagnosis.


What symptoms should pay attention

  • itching, burning sensation on the skin or mucosa, wherein the subsequent lesions appear characteristic for herpes

Manifestations of herpes in women in case of defeat genitals may affect not only the outside of the genitals and the vaginal wall, outer thighs, buttocks. The main symptom of herpes infection is a rash with blisters that affects the mucous membranes and the skin surface. First, the bubbles can be single, but they subsequently fuse. Within a few days the content of bubbles is transparent, then it becomes cloudy, which is observed in the period before the bubbles burst.

Herpes in women can occur without rash. In this case, the characteristic will be complaints of severe pruritus, discomfort in the genital area. Only helps to confirm the diagnosis laboratory diagnostics, to detect the presence of viral diseases. These forms of herpes become more severe, since a woman often takes multiple treatments for other infectious diseases, and the disease becomes complicated course.

For a long time the woman may not know she is infected with the herpes virus. The disease occurs in a latent form, it does not affect the overall. Only under the influence of provoking factors activates the virus, which clinically manifested the development period of active lesions. It was during this period should be carried out antiviral therapy directed at suppressing the growth of the virus. Avoid self-medication, as quite often combined with other herpes infections that affect the change in the treatment regimen.

Herpes before menstruation often escalates, so in this period, it is important to follow certain preventive measures. These include hygiene measures of prevention, the maintenance of the sexual culture of behavior, compliance with nutritional advice.
