What are genital herpes symptoms?

Outbreaks got you feeling like you won the STI lottery? Cheer up, herpes is as common in dating as the awkward first kiss. Unfortunately, many people don’t know they have it. 1 in 8 US adults has HSV-2, the virus that primarily causes genital herpes (it can also be caused by HSV-1). Individuals with HSV-2 will experience genital outbreaks for the rest of their lives, although many individuals mistake them simply as "genital pimples" or "fever blisters" - but painful genital ulcers, call 'em what you want, are usually a sign you have genital herpes.

  • Genital ulcers on the vagina, anus, buttocks, thighs

  • Swollen or tender lymphs in the legs & groin

  • Headache & pain in your joints

  • Flu-like symptoms

  • Pain when you pee

  • Fatigue

Herpes Medication FAQ

How fast can I get HSV2 medicine?

Our doctors will review your information and, if safe and appropriate, prescribe herpes medication for pick up within 24 hours (usually within 2-4 hours). If you haven't received an email within 24 hours, please let us know at and we'll make sure this is called in ASAP!

Is there a daily HSV2 medicine I can take for treating HSV2 (herpes sore) that prevents herpes outbreaks also?

Yes! You can take antivirals two ways: 1) Just when you feel an outbreak coming (episodic), which is a 5-day treatment, typically Valacyclovir 1 gram, that speeds up recovery and reduces the severity and length of the outbreak, but does not reduce your risk of getting an outbreak nor spreading the virus to your partners and 2) Everyday (suppressive), which can reduce your risk of an outbreak by at least 70-80%, and reduce your risk of spreading the virus to others down to 1% of the time.

Is there an HSV2 cure for living with herpes?

Unfortunately, there is no HSV cure at this time. However, depending on the frequency and severity of your outbreaks, antiviral medication can help you live outbreak free. Even without a medically-verified herpes diagnosis, many individuals know they have HSV 2 through the presence of recurring genital sores, i.e. outbreaks. It's common to look for a cream for genital herpes outbreaks, but outbreak prevention is more achievable with oral antiviral medication.

Do I need insurance?

Nope! If you have it, you can use it if you choose to pick up your medication at your local pharmacy. However, if you don't, the price is included in the price for delivery and if you need to pick it up the same day, we offer coupons to keep your total under $20!

Will this really help? I seem to be getting more frequent outbreaks.

Yes, we offer the most effective FDA-Approved medication available: Valacyclovir & Acyclovir. Scientifically speaking, they are both equally effective at treating cold sores and genital herpes; yet some people respond better to one medication over the other. In addition, a higher dose might be required if outbreaks still persist. If you find that one medication & dose isn't working as well for you as you'd like, please let our doctor know and they'll recommend either 1) trying a different medication, 2) a higher dose, or 3) both.

How (quickly) do these pills work?

Valacyclovir (aka Valtrex) & Acyclovir (aka Zovirax and Sitavig) are the most effective drugs on the market today for treating cold sores, shingles and genital herpes outbreaks. They are also used to treat chickenpox (VZV).
They are both considered equally effective for preventing outbreaks & the spread of Herpes Simplex 1 & 2 to sexual partners.
The most important thing to preventing an outbreak is time. Within the first 48 hours of feeling the first symptoms in the area you're treating (itchiness, tingling, burning, pain) is recommended.
However, the quicker you take valacyclovir or acyclovir after feeling the first cold sore or genital ulcer symptoms, the less likely you are to experience an outbreak. 
Remember, the quicker you take it, the less severe (if at all) the outbreak.
If you feel anything coming on, talk to a doctor to see if valacyclovir or acyclovir are right for you.
