Herpes outbreaks with fertility treatment?

Recommended Posts

I have had herpes for about 5 years. I recently found out I have PCOS and decided to start a family. I was referred to reproductive endocrinologist and I have started in Femara 5 mg x 5 days and a trigger shot.

I have been having severe leg pain and small recurring outbreaks during this process. Has anyone else had similar experience?

I've never used Femara, but I went through IVF 3 times and never had any issues with anything except for the vaginal progesterone suppositories. They didn't make me have an OB (I actually didn't even know I had H until after I was done having babies), but that shit is nasty and caused a raging yeast infection every time I used it. So, if you ever do have to go the route of IVF (I hope you don't!), opt for all PIO shots...I prefer the shots any day over the progesterone suppositories.

Hormonal changes can have an impact on outbreaks. If you don't already take antivirals, perhaps you could ask if it's an option to try them to easy your symptoms while you are going through this treatment?

My username is "tiredandlonely" because I joined back when I was first diagnosed and I don't know how to change it now. I'm not tired and lonely anymore. Still tired sometimes though 🙂
