How it works
1. Enter your state of residence and choose your board certified doctor! You can read your doctor's credentials in their biographies that are provided. Your physician will review your medical intake form and prescribe the best treatment plan for you.
2. Complete your HIPPA compliant medical intake form. The questions on this form are the same questions that would be asked at a regular doctor’s visit. Here, you can elaborate on your condition and leave specific notes or concerns for your doctor. This form is legally required, it allows the doctor to create an accurate treatment plan specific to your needs.
3. Receive your medication right to your door. After your doctor reviews your medical intake form, they will prescribe the appropriate medication for your treatment plan. Don't worry, the packaging is discreet and will not have any reference to HerpesHappens™, or any conditions related to your prescription.
About the medication
Valacyclovir, acyclovir and famciclovir are three generic oral medications that are used to treat symptoms of specific bacterial viruses. Some of these viruses include: herpes (both HSV-1 & HSV-2), shingles, chickenpox, and more.
These medications can reduce and prevent specific symptoms of common viruses, like herpes, but is not a cure for the viruses.
Should I get tested for herpes?
If you go to your doctor’s office and ask for the “full work-up” STD screening, did you know that herpes is not included? With 1 in 4 people in the US diagnosed with herpes, wouldn’t it be included in any STD screening? No, and here’s why…
Herpes testing is highly unreliable even if you have visible sores that a doctor can swab. And many people with herpes have never exhibited any symptoms. Blood tests look for herpes antibodies, but this only shows if you have ever been exposed to the virus. Because of this, there are many false positive results. The stigma and shame from a genital herpes infection can be worse than the disease itself, which is why the CDC does not recommend testing on people who do not have any symptoms.
However, there are some extenuating circumstances that would warrant herpes testing. If you have (or have had) a sex partner with genital herpes, have herpes symptoms, or if you are pregnant and have a partner with genital herpes. It is especially important to be tested for herpes if you are pregnant because this can be life-threatening for the baby.
Even if you have visible sores, the swab results are only 50% to 90% accurate. As many as half of these results come back false negative due to insufficient samples. Because of these unreliable testing options, the most common way for doctors to diagnose it is by simply examining your symptoms.
What our patients are saying
“I struggled with cold sore outbreaks nearly every month or two. It was awful and so embarrasing and I currently don’t have any insurance so seeing a doctor was out of the question. Herpes Happens has been amazing, I consulted with a REAL doctor and I received Valacyclovir in the mail. Now I take Valacyclovir when I feel an outbreak coming up and majority of the time I can stop it before it even starts!”
“When I got my herpes type 2 diagnosis a few years ago I was so depressed and upset. I was worried what people would think of me and it felt like my life was over. Herpes Happens has been a great supportive resource for me and I love the privacy and convenience they offer. I was always so embarrassed asking my doctor for Valtrex and picking up my prescription from the pharmacy. I felt like everyone was judging me. Now I don’t even have to go to a doctor’s office or a pharmacy. Everything is online and I receive my medication to my door in discreet packaging.”

“Herpes Happens is awesome, the whole process was super easy and simple. I consulted with a licensed doctor in my state AND received my treatment at $49. That saves me at least $200! I like to keep a couple Valtrex on hand when I know I’m going to have a particularly stressful week at work. Nothing is more annoying and inconvenient than cold sores! With Valtrex I can keep them at bay!”
