Can I Have Oral Sex While Taking Valtrex

I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ORAL SEX WHILE USING VALTREX FOR GENITAL HERPES....I WANT TO KNOW IF IT IS OK TO HAVE IT DONE

Answer

Bo,

Thank you for your question. It's important for you to know that you can spread genital herpes at any time, whether or not you're having an outbreak. Taking Valtrex reduces your risk of spreading herpes, but there is no way to 100% guarantee that you will not spread the disease. You should definitely avoid all sexual activity during an outbreak, and even when you're not having an outbreak you should be sure to use safe sex practices. You can go here for more information about Valtrex, and you should speak with your doctor if you need more information about how to prevent transmitting the disease.

Best of luck,

Casey
