good question

i am new to this and i have only had my first OB. I was actually wondering the exact same question. I would like to get on suppressive thearpy but im worried about the long term effects. Also, i was wondering if i should wait to see if i have another OB and how far apart they are before I try supressive thearpy.

Sorry i hope you dont mind me building off your post :-?

I have been taking suppressive meds for years

Hi, I have had this 'gift' many years and when I am dating someone I take 400mg of acyclovir and 1000mg of lysine daily. I have been doing this for years and have felt no side affects of these drugs.

However, everyone is different, so either consult your doctor or read the literature associated with these drugs regarding possible side affects.

Good luck!

JB
