How Soon After Taking Meds Can I Start Having Sex?

I have a small outbreak and started taking 3 days of valtrex yesterday. When can I start having sex with my partner? And if the sore is not on my vagina can he touch me there with his hands w/o having to worry?

Answer

Thank you for posting your question. There are a couple of sites I can direct you to that might give you some answers. This site has some good information about Valtrex and when and when not have sex while taking the drug. Also, this article has some good information about practicing safe sex when you have the herpes virus.

For further information, it would be best to consult with the doctor who prescribed Valtrex to you.
