  1. I got diagnosed about 7 years ago and for the first 5 years I’d get 1 or 2 outbreaks a year which was manageable but for some reason they’ve increased A LOT these past two, they seem to happen every 6 weeks- 2months, granted I’ve been stressed but I was also just as stressed before that, I’ve been on suppressants 2500 mg a day which after seeing a new doctor today I’ve found out that that’s a ginormous dose! It’s most commonly said that obs decrease after a couple years but obviously in my case they’ve tripled! Has anyone else experienced this? Any theories on why this could be other than stress? I’m keeping my head up but this might not allow me to have a healthy sex life again and it’s hard to come to terms with that, not to mention the awkward social grey area I’m left to navigate through.
  2. Hey, I feel you. I got diagnosed about 7 years ago and for the first 5 years or so I’d get one or two outbreaks a year but for some reason this past year and a half i’ve been getting them every months and a half, I’ve been taking 2500 mg a day which I’ve just been informed is a HUGE dose, the outbreaks have been reoccurring relentlessly though, I’ve had sex a few times(with disclosure) and it seems i tend to always get an ob about a week after. I feel like this might be the end of my sex life, I’m keeping my head up but it seems like it’s heading for the worst.
