Thyroid and Herpes

Recommended Posts

I have H2 genitally for almost 4 years now. I've been able to keep it under control with daily antivirals until recently. In mid-May I had surgery to remove my left thyroid due to a large mass. It seems like about two weeks after my surgery, I've had back to back outbreaks. I only get one bump but as soon as that one starts to clear up, then another appears and in a place that I've never had them before. I never use to get them inside, always on the outside. These are on the inside of my right "lip" (I know that's not the proper term but you know what I mean). Does anyone know if thyroid plays a part in hormones and can effect outbreaks? I've had my blood work done and the doctor said my remaining thyroid is functioning properly and my levels are good but I'm just not feeling right since the surgery.


My boyfriend is very understanding, thankfully, when it comes to the intimacy part and not being able to be close with him. He can't perform with condoms so he chooses to not use them but we have not been intimate while I am going through outbreaks. We just recently got back together and now this...ugh! I think a phone call to the doctor is happening soon but I wanted to see if anyone else may have had this issue. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
