hsv 2, I take valtrex, well acyclovir 2 pills a day 500mg
& yesss he's been tested about 2months ago , I havent had sex with him with a outbreak but I, found, out he could still get it if I dont have a outbreak so now im freaked out.
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.
