Wondering If It's Herpes? Here's How You Can Get Treated.
Life With Herpes
https://youtu.be/MsOHGQfjvi8 Hi guys! I’m as always excited to be here with you. Today I’ve discovered a great solution for us!!! Get ready to get excited! The moment we think we have herpes we begin to panic. Rember what that’s like? I sure do. We either feel something down there, or feel like the flu is coming on, or worse we see something. The next thing that happens is the “oh $h*t” moment! We usually know it’s herpes but we’re in total denial. The number one thing we want to do is keep this a secret. We don’t want to go through the embarrassment of people finding out. The fear of embarrassment can even keep us from calling our doctor or the local health clinic to get a proper diagnosis. This fear is so serious that it will stop us in our tracks. This is a huge problem because we need a diagnosis in order to get antiviral! Or another scenario that happens is when you know somethings not right down there and you need to get in ASAP! I mean you’re in pain and you want answers and a prescription ASAP! Have you ever called your doctors’ office and had the response of, “oh we can fit you in a week from Wednesday.” WTF!!!??? That’s not going to work either. So here’s the deal. Herpalert is an online resource for us to quickly and confidentially connect with a doctor! This is HUGE! And this is super easy because we can do it right from our phone or computer. Here’s how Herpalert works. So when you have the oh $h*t moment and think you have herpes the fastest way to get a diagnosis and your prescription filled is to head over to herpalert.com. Oh, and our community get’s a sweet discount on the service so use the promo code: lifewithherpes. In the video, I walk you through step by step on filling out the online application. Seriously, it takes like 2 minutes. Way easier than heading down to your general practitioner. If you’re diagnosed with herpes it's very important that you get on the antiviral ASAP. The sooner you get the medicine in your body the sooner you’ll start feeling better. I can very vividly remember how bad I felt when I was diagnosed and as soon as I got the antiviral in my system I could start feeling the infection healing. Herpalert allows you to upload your photo of your outbreak and if you’re diagnosed with herpes then fill your prescription and it’ll be at your pharmacy within an hour. Pretty cool, right? Just to give you another rundown about how streamlined Herpalert is here's how it works. You head to the website, fill out your signs and symptoms, pick your pharmacy, upload your photo, pay at the checkout and then you receive secure information regarding your diagnosis from one of the Herpalert doctors. And boom...your prescription is at your pharmacy of choice and ready for you. This cuts out the embarrassment of sitting at the doctors' office or waiting for your appointment a week from Wednesday. On a personal note, the reason why I love Herpalert as a resource for our Life With Herpes community is they are aligned with our mission. In fact, it's the same focus, Herpalert wants to break the herpes stigma too. They are dedicated to removing the stigma and lessening outbreaks so that you and I can get back to our normal lives. They believe and so do I that there’s no reason to suffer or be in pain. The antiviral can lessen the outbreak from three weeks to just a matter of days. I mean, why would you want to sit in pain for three weeks? Ok so watch the video to learn more about Herpalert. If you’re ready to make your appointment go here and make sure you use the promo code: lifewithherpes to receive a discount on your appointment. Big Hugs, Alexandra
