The transmission chances are less when you are not having outbreak. Avoid sexual contact (or contact involving exchange of body fluids) when you are having outbreaks. Visit your doctor/healthcare provider or further clarification about treatment and about prophylactic continuation of treatment to reduce the outbreaks. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
