Hi all! I need advice. My OB prescribed me Valtrex because 4 years ago I had a HSV1 outbreak due to oral sex. It was mortifying and embarrassing. I have not had an outbreak since 2019 and had only taken Valtrex that one time to clear the infection. It made me extremely sick and anxious. I was told I can refuse the valtrex but if during labor and delivery I have an outbreak I will have to have a c section which I definitely don’t want. What are the chances I have an outbreak during labor and delivery?? I’m losing sleep over this. I am already 3cm dilated and hoping my baby comes soon. I hate the way this medicine makes me feel but I am so scared of having to have a c section if I happen to for some reason have an outbreak. Any advice is appreciated thank you.
