I've had genital herpes for about 3 years now and am still waiting for the outbreaks to lessen does anyone else experience them every month just before menstruation and is there any hope that this will stop or can I expect this every month until I have my period?View Thread
yes, it's Valtrex at 500 mg and it's once a day up to twice a day but I don't take it everyday anymore because I was still getting the outbreaks and find that as long as I take it once a month around the time of my period then it makes no difference. I also take Lysine and sometimes Garlic supplements.View Thread
