Advice on managing anxiety?Seems to be the cause of my OBs.

Recommended Posts

Hi, It's been quite some time since i've logged in. So I am going into my 5th year with HSV2 and i'm still getting an OB once a month (around my period). I've tried acyclovir and more recently changed over to valtrex, but I don't see much help from them. And while my symptoms have decreased a lot (to the point where I don't even realize I'm about to get a blister until it appears)  I have come to the realization that my anxiety must be the cause of my constant ob's even after 5 years of having it!!! By now I surely thought that I'd be having one or two a year :(. I even avoided alcohol and chocolate for months thinking it was the food I was consuming. 

Anyone have similar experience and if you did or do, how are you managing your anxiety. Have you seen a decrease in your obs?


Thank you!
