Does Birth Control Affect Herpes Outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

Hi, Everyone!!

I hope you are all doing well!! 🌻

I have been having horrible OCD and other emotional issues, even though I take Zoloft. Other females in my extended family have had hormonal imbalances that have caused extreme OCD and emotional issues, and after going on birth control, they were completely fine. An OBGYN wrote me a four month script for a pill called Larin (even though she literally said she doesn't think my issues are caused by hormones) and told me to see what happens. I honestly am not happy about having to take it, but I figured I would give it a shot to help my emotional issues.

However, I just realized that the birth control could affect my herpes! I have genital herpes HSV-1, and I have only had two outbreaks besides my first. Has anyone had any experiences regarding birth control and HSV? Is there anything I should prepare for, etc? Has anyone ever tried Larin?

Any guidance would be so greatly appreciated!!

Sending you all blessings and love!!! ♥️🕊️🌄
