Re: Risk of transmission while on Valtrex
Jock, I would like to know this as well. I'm in a relationship and my BF has H. I haven't contracted it yet but since we are talking about a family at this point I'd like to know actual percentages. I do know its higher than a woman passing it to a man (1-2% on Valtrex and condoms)...we practice safe sex (unfortunately)and when he feels the tingle he takes Valtrex and we refrain from sex for 10 days. They say the shedding occurs for 7-10 days after an OB. That's typical BUT shedding can really be anytime which makes it so confusing and hard to avoid. I guess whatever we are doing seems to be working because we are now going on four years together and I'm still H free.
