Outbreak frequency?

Recommended Posts

Have y'all noticed that the outbreaks come in "cycles"? I was diagnosed a little over a year ago and for a while I kept getting outbreaks a couple times a month. Then I had a nice break of about 5 months with no issues (after I addressed some bacterial vaginosis and yeast and got things healthy).

I messed up and used birth control pills to change when my period was coming...stopping the pill caused an outbreak. Now a few weeks later, I am getting another one and I didn't have any exposure to my normal triggers that I know of. I'm wondering if now that I've had one outbreak, I am prone to more because my body hasn't completely "calmed down" from the last one?

I may have to start taking valtrex suppressively again.
