walking the thin line

Is it true that women who take the Pill (oral contraceptives) are at higher risk for shedding? I saw an article on it but it doesn't provide any statistics. I am merely asking because I have been on the Pill for a month now and my partner is not infected. I would feel HORRIBLE if I increased my chances of spreading it to him. We always use condoms. I started the Pill to control my menstrual cycles. Can anyone put my fears to rest?

I have never heard that before???? I know it can cause outbreaks more often. But i'm on the pill and have only had the initial outbreak at the end of DEC and nothing else so I don;t know...but i think the pill is fine to take and shouldn't increase the amount of shedding.
