My husband has got herpes simplex II. . He is perfectly fit and doesn't have any recurrences. I am on suppressive therapy. It has been very tough for us emotionally. So i have decided to give up the medications and get infected. How do i contact herpes in the safest way? I am otherwise very fit. If I take acyclovir for 10 days (5 times a day for 200mg) will my symptoms will be less worse later after getting the herpes.
