Herpes HS2 Outbreaks- How often?


I just found out that I have herpes. Two weeks ago I had a chemical pregnancy, and within the last week I’ve developed what I thought was a pimple at first. Then more appeared, and my gyno confirmed it is herpes. I am in shock! My husband has had cold sores in the past, but he hasn’t had one recently and we’ve been together for years.

I’m so worried about having another outbreak. This one is super severe! Achey, tingly, painful when peeing, sitting, even walking. I’m on Valtrex, but what else do you use to alleviate pain?

Most importantly, I’m wondering how often to expect this again in the future.

Any info is appreciated. You can even DM me. I’m trying to learn. Thank you!
