Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Before pregnancy termination surgery, you can use valtrex. Since the pregnancy termination is done under a short anaesthesia or a sedation, it is not likely to affect the procedure in any way.
Do inform your gynecologist regarding the treatment as she might need to rule out all the infections before the procedure.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal
