Herpes once a month like clockwork

Recommended Posts

I am starting to get really discouraged. When I first found out I had herpes I had about a monthly long nasty outbreak I didn't have another outbreak until August. Since August I started using a period calender to record my OB since I had three oiybreals alone in august. (Granted, Uni had started again, I had just moved back to America, and my boyfriend dumped me) so I assumed stress. However since I have had an outbreak every 26-28 days. I am on birth control, the same I had been using since the beginning of the herpes contraction, so I don't know what is going on! No habits have changed (no increase in drinking or smoking). I take 2k lysine per day (1 1kmg in morning and 1 at night). I also take vitamin C. When I do have an outbreak I have aciclvor on standby, but I prefer to not take these meds. I also took two HIV test, in fear one was negative because I heard immune system problems lead to repeat herpes can mean HIV. Both negative. (The HIV test was well after 6 months from the man I received herpes from, and my recent boyfriend certainly doesn't have HIV.)



Please anybody who can give me info on how not to get it every month I would be so grateful.

All I can suggest is go on anti viral full time. It's perfectly safe and so worth the benefit of not having an ob. Some people have ob's while on anti viral, but I've been hugely successful with it. I've had H over 30 years. Had about 6 ob's per year with no prodrome warning. I decided last Feb to go on acyclovir daily and I've not had had an ob since.
