I found a box of Aciclovir tablets (400mg) in my boyfriend’s

This answer was rated:

Hello. I found a box of Aciclovir tablets (400mg) in my boyfriend’s flat. He tells me “I was sleeping with a girl who found out she had it months later and told me. I’ve never had it but I was advised it might be worth having the treatment to hand if I was ever run down or stressed”.
Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: I am really concerned about my own health and would like to know how I can eat tested for herpes.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Sorry - I mean *get tested. I do not trust him and want to know what I can do to protect myself

Hello and welcome.

Does your boyfriend say he developed genital herpes, or did he just buy the acyclovir "just in case"? Thank you.

Hello, he says he’s “never had herpes” but he has taken Aciclovir regularly “just in case”. I assume he means he has never had an outbreak
