Herpes is an STD caused by HSV (herpes simplex virus). Genital herpes is a lifelong STD that causes painful outbreaks of blisters in the genital area.
Suppressive therapy is the use of prescription Valtrex on a daily basis whether an outbreak is present or not.
Whereas Valtrex is commonly used to stop an outbreak, it can also be used daily to prevent outbreaks from occurring to begin with.
Many couples in which one partner has genital herpes (HSV-2) have a healthy sex life and still never transmit it to the uninfected partner.
Taking precautions like avoiding sex during and around the time of an outbreak, using condoms, and taking antiviral medication like Valocyclovir (Valtrex) or Acyclovir drastically reduces the likelihood of transmission.
So they will either deny that they have any herpes symptoms or they will procrastinate going to get TESTED for herpes. You owe it to yourself and your partner(s) to get tested and tell them the truth if you see that you have herpes symptoms of any kind.
