    Default Genital Herpes and Surgery, should i take Anti-viral

    I have Genital Herpes and i'm going for cosmetic surgery.I usually don't have breaouts. just 1-2 times every 1-2 yrs, but i'm worried about risk of herpes breakout after surgery. So, should i take Anti-viral before and after surgery to prevent the breakout?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes it is highly recommended that you take anti-viral prophylaxis before and after the procedure, you don't want to mess with herpes.
