I am a married mother of two fantastic kids. 18 years ago, after a long term relationship ended, I was diagnosed with HSV-2. While I have had minor outbreaks over the years, one every year or two and spent many years not having any, it seems at 44 I'm having them consistently. Due to my hormones I have also had severe periods which were treated by 4 different birth control pills, that I believe contributed to continued outbreaks because My body didn't seem to ever regulate. While pregnant I never had outbreaks. I chose to cease all medication except for my daily suppression valtrex combined with Lysine and changed my diet to exclude foods high in arginine. The outbreaks continue. I have taken all the supplements recommended Olive Lead, Monolaurian. They persist. Any suggestions are welcome.
