Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I have been taking Valtrex for about 3 months now and my period has been regular until this month. I am 12 days late


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • The tremors/shakiness are intermittent. It is possible I could have had a constant shingles outbreak for over 7 yrs now due to my severely suppressed immune system. It takes me several weeks to be able to recover from these symptoms once treatment is stopped. However, I'm not sure if there will be irreparable damage to my kidneys at this point.


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • My husband has been out of town working for 2 months until 2 weeks ago. We had sex on the 28th when he got home & just about everyday thereafter until now. I miscarried a few months ago & my cycles changed obviously but keeping with the dates they have turned into I should have,worse case scenario of 31 day cycle instead of 28, started on the 4th. I am having cramps here & there, just still no period. Now, how this is relevant to Valtrex: I broke out w a cold sore & dr gave me valtrex on June 4th (my expected 31 day cycle start date). I took 2 that day, 3 on the following 2 days, they didnt seem to be helping to make cold sores go away so I stopped taking them. That is 4 days without any valtrex so is it possible I have fallen pregnant again with wacky ovulating/ period schedule or could this all be due to valtrex? If pregnancy is an option (i know is always an option when not using protection) how much longer should I wait to test since the first time we had sex was the 28th, only 2 weeks ago tomorrow? Thanks
