Is anyone else having problems with herpes outbreaks? I've had herpes years. For the last few years it hasn't been a massive problem with hardly any outbreaks in a given year. Now that I'm ttc, especially in the last few months the outbreaks are getting more frequent and they come out a few days before ovulation, so we miss our opportunity for that month. This last month has been the worst with 3 outbreaks in a row! My partner and I haven't had sex in weeks. I've started taking lysine daily which I haven't had to do for at least 3 years to try and prevent future outbreaks. It's so unfair. It's bad enough I've got my age against me without this as well. Is it hormones that is causing outbreaks at ovulation? Any ideas?
