The Life With Herpes Podcast


Welcome to today’s episode on Life With Herpes. I am bringing this to you from a very exciting place, I am in Versailles France. I am actually recording this on the premises of the Versailles Palace. How cool is that?  You will have to check out some of the photos below and I hope you excuse me getting a bit sidetracked with all of the excitement happening around me. It was pretty cool and exciting to see everyone dressed up and heading to a real place for a ball.


“Take advantage of what our modern medicine has to offer.” - Alexandra Harbushka


Today’s #askalexandra question came from Erica who is from Wisconsin. She asked a really great question, “what happens if I don’t get treated and I don't tell my doctor that I have herpes? Well, I sum that up pretty quickly for you all...Nothing really happens. With that being said, it is not wise to not tell your doctor and not wise to not seek treatment. Today we have so many modern medicines so that we can relieve the pain and discomfort that it is wise to take the antiviral. I go on into more details on the podcast so feel free to tune in.


If you want to be cool like Erica then submit your #askalexandra question here.

This is me recording this podcast at Versailles. I hope you enjoyed it!
