Valtrex Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was recently diagnosed with genital herpes, which I got from an ex-girlfriend of mine (which she knew but did not disclose to me). I have a current girlfriend who does not have herpes. Although I have no symptoms, I want to reduce the chance that I transmit the virus to my girlfriend. I am going to start taking Valtrex tomorrow. How long do you think it will take before I can be intimiate with my girlfriend?

I’d give it about a week to be on the safe side and give it plenty of time to work through your system and start bringing down the viral shedding.

Absolutely. There are really only 2 reasons to be on suppressive therapy. To keep partners from getting herpes and if your outbreaks are frequent and/or severe. Here’s an article I wrote about it: https://www.herpesopportunity.com/post/herpes-medication
