10 years later, sex triggers outbreaks?

I was diagnosed with genital herpes 10 years ago. I went outbreak free for the past 6 years (first 4 years with few outbreaks). I am single and I have noticed that now when I have sex it is bringing on outbreaks. This has happened several times with different partners over the past 8 months or so. Lubrication is not a problem and I always have protected sex. Why 10 years later would sex trigger an outbreak? Should I ask my doctor to put me on Valtrex daily? Also, I am always honest when I start dating someone and let them know the truth about my "issue." I am just confused about why all of a sudden I would have an outbreak after sex. I wanted to add that it isn't rough sex so I am just at a lost as to why this would be happening 10 years later????
In my past even though I was always honest I didn't worry too much about passing it on because it had been so long since the last outbreak. Now with me having outbreaks after every sexual encounter I am scared to have sex

Re: 10 years later, sex triggers outbreaks?

I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing with you, because you remind me of myself. I went through a period of time where very "vigorous" sex was making me have outbreaks. I did have to have a lot of dry spells without it, waiting for that outbreak to get over. It did finally stop. It happened for about 6 months. Good luck!
