For those who have harboured this virus for years, is it true that herpes recurrences reduce in frequency and severity over time for u???
For me, this is not true. While I was on supressive therapy I had almost no outbreaks. After I went off of them, that effect lasted for up to a year maybe? But now after over 2 years of being off drugs, I am back to having them monthly - which is about what it was before drugs.
And all u married, single or has this infection causes your marriage to be on the rocks, leading to divorce???
And I am married - diagnosed before meeting my DH - I told him, he was understanding, we dated then married & now have a child! We've been together 8 years now!
there is hope!! Read the recent thread entitled Happy Couples - there's lots of us out here!
