Greetings again. I am taking the generic form of Valtrex for genital herpes on a daily basis. I've not had any outbreaks, although at times I feel a slight tingling. I also insist on a condom when I am sexually active. what do you think the chances are of passing along genital herpes to another partner? I humbly thank you for your time!

Hi! I certainly hope someone responds to your question. I've just begun dating a lady who admitted to me that she has HSV-II; acquired years ago and she has been sexually inactive ever since. I am completely in the dark on Herpes and have been doing a lot of reading lately. I haven't been sexually active in over 10 years either and I'm really ready to 'dive in', so to speak, but now I'm seriously concerned. I truly enjoy giving oral sex and now I'm feeling distraught over the entire issue.


How effective and beneficial is Valtrex? I'm considering asking her to take it, but she hates taking any meds, though she does take a few pills. I need to read the Valtrex reviews and side effects so I can speak to it with some knowledge.


With nearly 44 million infected people out there, someone has to answer your query! I'll be following this thread on my watchlist in hopes of learning more about what I need to know. I thank you for posting your question babyboomer76.
