Herpes outbreak & period

Recommended Posts

Hellooo. I know I've read about herpes outbreaks around or driving the mentstral period due to the hormonal changes. Does this increase the chances of an outbreak if you're on birth control or lessen it? I haven't been able to find anything really about this except that theirs possible for a herpes outbreak during times of hormone changes, I.e. period. Any information or personal experience would be appreciated.

In my experience, the pill didn't worsen anything. I know now that I had herpes before I even went on the pill, and my symptoms were always so mild that I mistook them for others things (like yeast infections). But I didn't suddenly start having bad outbreaks when I started the pill. I also didn't notice a difference when I stopped either (several years before I got my diagnosis).
