Thank you so much for your reply. I think I may have worded some of my questions in a confusing way. I am wondering if discontinuing the valcyclovir now after taking it for a week would put me at a greater risk of severe symptoms than if I had never stated it.
If I was infected orally, what I am most concerned about is accidentally infecting other parts of my body. Since I am not producing as many antibiotics due to the daily medicine, do you think I would be at a higher risk for this for a longer period of time?
Since I have only taken 7 days of valcyclovir, would stopping it now allow me to return to the typical time period for hsv testing?
If I were to stop taking the medicine now, would I likely return to the same odds of having an outbreak as I would have had if I had never started it?
If I stopped taking it now and waited to see if I start to get a primary outbreak, and if so, got back on the medicine, do you think it would it still have the same effectiveness at potentially preventing future outbreaks or making them less severe, or would stopping it and then restarting it put me at a disadvantage?
Thanks so much again.
