the birth control pill has been found to increase shedding of hsv2 slightly. if you are taking daily suppressive therapy though, it's not an issue.

I'm a fan of less periods overall myself!!!  not quite liking the age I'm currently at for many reasons, one of which is being on the pill is riskier so I stopped it and am back to being at the mercy of my hormones....sigh.  

honestly I wouldn't worry much about the birth control choice. the increase in shedding is small.
