Should I try suppressive therapy?

Recommended Posts

I was just diagnosed with HSV2 today and my first OB was pretty mild and has already begun to heal. I am scared to death of having another OB and I know that things like stress can trigger it, and being a college student, I have a LOT of stress. I don't know if my symptoms will recur frequently or not, but I kind of want to try daily therapy anyway as a precaution. It can't hurt, can it? Or should I wait?

The decision to use antivirals is a personal one. Some people choose not to and adopt the " wait and see" attitude. Other people want antivirals right away. It is said that the first year is the worst with hsv so that is why people opt for antivirals right away. My suggestion would be to do some reading about antivirals and then make up your mind. Knowledge is power. Good luck.
