    I assume you got the antiviral drug from a medical practioner that made a clinical diagnosis of herpes? if we assume they are correct, the unfortunate reality is that the virus will hide out in your nerves forever, regardless of whether you have a visible outbreak or not. many people never have a secondary ( and thankfully less painful) outbreak, in the future, but the virus can become activated and then lesions appear in a single nerve distribution on the perineum (privates), but one will also have viral particles in the sexual fluids. from now on, technically, you will never know when your viral levels are high and the best way to avoid both outbreaks and transmission to another is to use barrier methods and ask your medical provider about DAILY antiviral medication. it is safe and effective. herpes s****.
