Frequent HSV 1 Outbreaks. Need Advice!!

Recommended Posts

kwoods

I contracted oral herpes from my bf back in hs. I had the initial outbreak and at least 10yrs. went by before I had another. Lately, I have had an outbreak every month. It always happens during or right after my period. I tried lysene, multivitamins, and also iron supplements. They did nothing. I was wondering if there are any other women here who have suffered frequent outbreaks like myself and if so, what have they tried.

Thanks in advance! :p

The thing is, I've been reading about all the crazy side effects of meds like valtrex. I think since it might be hormone related, I'm going to talk to my gyno about switching birth control methods.

i have had two outbreaks so far very close to my period also! worried this will continue. I have considered asking my doctor if the pill has anything to do with it? or try taking antivirals the week before your period.
