I started taking Valtrex for the first time 2 weeks ago when I experienced a recurrent outbreak during my 36 week of pregnancy. The sores healed in 5 days, however 5 days later another outbreak has started, and I am now 38 weeks pregnant with 3 visible genital sores. I have never had outbreaks back to back like this before, and although my symptoms are so very mild (just some itchiness), I do not understand how I am already having another outbreak while taking Valtrex. Has anyone experienced back to back outbreaks while taking Valtrex? If so, did you continue to take it, or stop? I see my doctor tomorrow.
