Has there been any study to prove that taking Valtrex for an uninfected person will help from getting Herpes (genital)

Curious if anyone knows if being on daily valtrex when acquiring HIV prolongs seroconversion or otherwise makes testing unreliable/difficult

Large, randomised controlled studies have found that giving HIV- people aciclovir does not reduce their rate of infection, and giving it to HIV+ people doesn't reduce their rate of transmission. Valacyclovir is just a slightly stronger version. I'm skeptical it will make much difference. www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lancet/PIIS0140-6736(08)60920-4.pdf www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa0904849 .
