Unfortunately there is no cure for herpes at this time. Like many viruses, once you have been infected, some small amount of virus will be "dormant" within your body forever, meaning it is inactive but still present, and could reactivate. Risk factors for reactivation of herpes include anything that depresses your immune system, such as smoking, stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, and other illnesses. If you take valacyclovir every day you reduce the chance of having an outbreak, and of transmitting it to your husband. I typically tell my patients to avoid intercourse during times of active outbreak and take the medication everyday to reduce risk of transmitting it. Mayo Clinic has some information here. Do you have any other questions for me?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
