the dose you listed is valtrex, not acyclovir.  check the bottle to be sure of what medication you really are taking.

if you are on daily suppressive therapy, use condoms and avoid sex anytime you have anything going on genitally, a male partner is 99% likely each year NOT to contract hsv2 from you. to give you something to compare it to, if you only used the pill for birth control, you are only 92% likely each year not to become pregnant.
