Wow I totally missed this response
Sorry! Yes to the COVID vaccine, I got two doses back in 2021 I believe….
No known underlying health issues, stress is higher than what I’d like but i exercise regularly and eat well to try to mitigate. I’m noticing it’s more often when I’m about to get my period which is annoying because I don’t want to get outbreaks every month!! What can I do to reduce / prevent hormonal outbreaks if that’s the issue?
Im curious also, I had an outbreak start on Tuesday morning, I took 1000mg valtrex 3x per day all the way to Friday because Friday night was my relationship anniversary and I wanted to enjoy it with my man. The vulva herpes pimple almost got to the blister stage and then by Friday it was not at all visible but I could kinda feel a bit of an itch (not sure if that was imagined due to paranoia or an actual sensation)
Anyhow, he and I had sex Friday night and Saturday and although I didn’t have a visible sore anymore and I took the high dose antiviral I’m still concerned if I was contagious or not.
Do you think the antiviral helped to reduce the viral load and he’s “safe”?
