I’ve had the disease for some time now and have been on medication. Recently, I’ve been told by my doctor that I’m safe and can probably stop taking my medication Acyclovir . Could this be true?
You should lead a normal life, which includes dating and may include sex. I encourage anyone who has herpes to be honest with any person they have sex with before having sex. Use a condom when having sex, and only have sex when you are not having an outbreak. I disagree with the person who says you don’t need a prescription drug, it is very helpful especially during the first years of having herpes. People who you do have sex with will want to know that you are doing all you can to keep them safe, and people with herpes don’t want the reminder or the herpes outbreaks.
