ne..plus/ne..jamais

Do ne..plus and ne..jamais follow the same rule as ne..pas do with reflexive verb?

This relates to:
Using ne ... pas with reflexive verbs in simple tenses (negation) -

Bonsoir Claire,
That is correct for the negation of reflexive verbs when using ne . . .plus and ne . . . jamais and any other negation structural pair, i.e. ne . . .rien, ne . . . aucun(e). For example:
I do not shave anymore. --> Je ne me rase plus.
I have never shaved. --> Je ne m'ai jamais rasé
From the lesson:
«When using a negative structure like "ne/n'...pas" with reflexive verbs in simple tenses, ne/n' is placed before the reflexive pronoun "me/te/se/nous/vous/se", and pas is after the verb.
Il s'amuse beaucoup -> Il ne s'amuse pas beaucoup
He's having a lot of fun -> He's not having a lot of fun»
I hope that you find this beneficial.
Bonne chance et bonne continuation.
à bientôt
