I guess the title says it all
I have a hsv 2 outbreak (genital herpes
) and baby is only 3 weeks old. My doctor says it is alright but I hate the fact that she will be getting some of this drug! I also found this site, saying it was okay. Anyone with experiance will help me feel better!

Thanks

Also wondering if anyone knows how long it would take for an outbreak to go away with no drugs...thanks

Yes, I took it as I got a cold sore. Same stuff for the oral herpes as well.

I took it when my LO was around 2 weeks old. I did not see any side effects, and the pharmacy okayed it as I did ask about effects with BF.

I am also taking it right now for a possible intial outbreak. 1 gram twice a day for 10 days. I am noticing a dramatic decrease in supply. I have 4 more days of the med, and am hoping my supply will rebound with a vegence. My babe is 9 months, and does eat solids thank goodness. I also have a huge frozen stash for this type of emergency.

On another note, I also started back on Weight Watchers, and joined a gym. I don't know if the supply downage is from the med alone, or the combination of all three factors. I think I will up my food intake, lower the exercise until the med is complete, and see where I am at. If no change in the milk supply, then it is the med.

This is whole situation is causing me distress, and add on a decease supply, and I am over the edge!

Here's a reference in Lactmed on Valtrex. Looks like it's OK.

Also, not to get OT, but for obnurse, my supply dramatically dropped while on WW. Be careful to eat ALL your points and additional nursing points, too. I still lost weight, but for after this baby, I'm going to wait longer to do WW. For me, it's not worth the loss of supply.
