Flu shot trigger outbreak???

Recommended Posts

Can a flu shot trigger an outbreak? I have ghsv-1 Since March 2019 and I got the flu shot yesterday and I’m feeling the achy pain down there which is semi similar to my first ob. Idk if it’s a coincidence or not but it’s Odd. I also have my period, shaved last week with a trimmer, and had sex (with condoms for the first time since infected). I am aware These are all triggers, but I have been fine with these before and the only different thing in play is the flu shot and sex.

I have no idea if it can trigger an OB, but the flu shot can trigger all sorts of nasty stuff. Have you read the big, long insert that comes with the vial, not that little printed "info" sheet they give you? It is full of nasty crap and has a LONG list of adverse reactions. I got one in my life...and I am still dealing with the injury it caused...16 years later...

@100918 Oh wow , I’m sorry to hear that... I have gotten the shot the past two years and have been fine with it. However those times I got it I didn’t have the Ghsv-1. So that’s why I’m curious what’s going on. unfortunately for work  i have to get one every year.

Can you not exempt out and wear a mask? I know a lot of people in the medical field who refuse it and wear a face mask during "flu" season...
