It's true that the initial HSV infection is usually the worst, but that does
n't mean that not treating you will protect you from future outbreaks. It does
that way. And there's no need to
delay until seeing your gynecologist. HSV treatment should always be start
ed ASAP; in my clinic, we never wait until the diagnosis is confirmed. The drug is harmless, and the sooner it is begun, the more effective it is. You should take your first dose tonight.
