We use telemedicine technology and U.S. licensed healthcare professionals to provide genital herpes treatments discreetly, conveniently, and inexpensively. It starts with your online visit. Your doctor or nurse practitioner needs to know about your health (e.g., your medications, lifestyle issues, prior surgeries) and how genital herpes affects you.

They also need personal ID so they know who they will be helping in the coming year. They review everything, determine if you’re a candidate for telemedicine and, if so (most people are), they will craft a personalized treatment plan. Their treatment plan will include a great deal of information about genital herpes. It is important you take the time to read it all. You will be better prepared to manage your condition as a partner—and not just a patient.

If you qualify, your doctor or nurse practitioner will provide a diagnosis and prescribe the right course of treatment to help you take control of herpes outbreaks.

Ro-affiliated healthcare professionals prescribe valacyclovir (generic Valtrex) to treat genital herpes. When used properly, this medication can help prevent and clear up herpes outbreaks.

Genital herpes medication is available and works extremely well if used at the first sign of an outbreak. But it requires you to dedicate the time to learn about your condition and work with your physician or nurse practitioner to craft the ideal, personalized treatment plan.

When you do, you can identify the first indication of your specific symptoms (prodrome) and use your medication to shorten or stop the outbreak from occurring.

Common side effects include headache, nausea, and stomach pain. More serious side effects can occur and are more likely if you have a weakened immune system or are elderly.

For more comprehensive information on side effects that can occur with valacyclovir, see full Important safety information here.

Yes. If your genital herpes has been diagnosed previously by an in-person provider, providers on the Ro platform can prescribe medication and help you dial in the most effective treatment plan for your unique needs.
