Hi, i was recently diagnosed with gental herpes type 1 and just finished a one week treatment with valtrex, and it appears to have cleared up the blister that i had, i was just wondering when it would be safer to have sex, with a condom offcourse, or when it is less likely to be contagious? We are still waiting my husbands blood test results for HSV, thanks for any help;)

I know it doesn't provide much of a window for having sex but it is best to wait a week after the outbreak clears up but hopefully your OB's will be few and far between and you'll have more opportunity for sex.

If your husband is HSV1 positive, you won't have to worry much about it. Also, genital HSV1 (is this what you have?) usually doesn't recur very much.
