"Valtrex for entire pregnancy?"|
I'm sure there is an answer in this forum somewhere, but I couldn't find it quickly. What's the going recommendation on using Valtrex for the entire pregnancy? I have taken it daily for the last few years, particularly since my husband doesn't have Type 2 ( although he hasn't been tested recently, so who knows!) However, with my onset of morning sickness in the past 3 weeks, I couldn't stomach it, so haven't been taking it. At my 8 week appointment, I told the nurse that I'd stopped taking it since it was making me feel more nauseous, but she didn't really seem to care either way. I didn't bother to raise it with my doctor, as I figured we'd chat about it much closer to delivery, and frankly, getting through the 12 week milestone has been more of a focus for me, particularly as a mom over 35... However, I just started to have an outbreak yesterday, so I started taking Valtrex again, but now I'm wondering if I should or shouldn't after the OB goes away. I'd always assumed I would continue to take it daily, as usual, despite pregnancy, to keep the risk to my husband as low as possible. Thoughts?|
