Our Teleclasses have been generously sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline, the makers of Valtrex. Valtrex is an antiviral drug used in the treatment of genital herpes, that has been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of outbreaks, as well as reducing the risk of transmission of herpes. This is an important option for management of your genital herpes. For more information about Valtrex and other treatment options, please visit www.herpeshealth.com.
Reduce the Risk of Spreading Genital Herpes
One of the difficulties of living with genital herpes is that you might pass it on to your partner. Valtrex is clinically proven to reduce the risk of spreading genital herpes to a partner. In fact, it’s the first and only herpes medication clinically proven to reduce the risk of spreading genital herpes. No other medication has been shown to do this. Safer sex practices should be used with daily therapy.
A recent clinical study proved that Valtrex, when taken once daily:
– Reduced a partner’s risk of getting genital herpes with signs or symptoms by 75%
– Reduced a partner’s risk of getting genital herpes with or without signs or symptoms by 48%
Valtrex is not a replacement for safer sex practices. Taking Valtrex daily should be used in addition to safer sex. To minimize your risk, there are a few important things you need to do. Do not have sexual contact with your partner when you have an outbreak or think you are about to get an outbreak. Always use a condom when you have sex. Take Valtrex every day as prescribed.
Ask your healthcare provider if daily Valtrex is right for you! For more information about treatment options, please visit www.herpeshealth.com.
