How valacyclovir can help you

You know your body better than anyone. And when it comes to oral herpes, your ability to recognize when an outbreak is about to occur helps you know precisely when you need treatment. 

If you can detect your early symptoms, the medication can stop the outbreak before it happens. And if valacyclovir can’t stop the outbreak, it may reduce a more moderate outbreak than you might have had otherwise.

More on genital herpes

Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection that’s caused by Herpes Simplex Virus type 2 (HSV-2) and Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1). HSV-2 is the most frequent cause of symptomatic genital herpes; however, HSV-1 also commonly causes genital herpes. Genital herpes can be passed along with no physical symptoms on the skin or genital mucosa (1). And since it’s transmitted by skin to skin contact like sex, talking with your sexual partner becomes even more important. 

Genital herpes is a very common STI. The CDC estimates that about 12 percent of the population (ages 14–49) are infected with HSV-2 and there are approximately 776,000 new cases in the U.S. each year.
