    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Can I pass it to my partner
    nat3726 posted:
    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.

    Thank you for getting back to me.
