i was told by pharmacist i shouldn't use aciclovir, but i was in the first trimester and she was probably trying to cover her back. the obstetrician said it should be fine, the only thing is they haven't done extensive trials on pregnant women (understandably v few people willing to be guinea pigs), so no evidence it is safe, but also no evidence at all it is a problem.
however i've stuck to the patches which, although expensive, seem to work really well if you can get over the feeling you've got a plaster on your face.
it is horrible, but a sign that the hormones are working - i had 3 in 4 weeks (normally get one every 18 months).
waitinggirl, hormones? are you saying I got this bc I'm pregnant? Thought it was stress-related. Haven't seen the plasters here (Singapore) but will keep my eyes open tomorrow. My feet are swollen and there's no way anyone can lure me away from my PC and Tv...
