If you had sex: If he has been diagnosed with herpes simplex and the tests are positive and you had sex while he was infected with active lesions, than there is a good chance that you may be infected, you can try valacyclovir 1gm three times a day for 14 days or Acyclovir 800 mgm 5times a day for 14 days to suppress the virus.Talk to your doctor but get the result of his test asap.
