Can I pass it to my partner

I have gential herpes, he does not have any herpes at all, can he do oral on me if I am talking Valtrex everyday. (for the last month or so everyday faithfully)
betsyo1967 responded:
your partner can contract hsv2 orally but the risk overall is low. You being on daily suppressive therapy means less viral shedding so the odds of him performing oral on you when the virus is active is very low. It's totally up to the two of you if you want to also utilize barrier protection for oral sex or not too to protect him even more.
