I had a non H boyfriend. We saw each other for 10 months and it was not a sex less relationship. We broke up and he did not get infected.
- He used condom every time having sex to reduce a chance of getting it.
- He washed himself especially the genital area after sex.
- I was on suppressive medication to prevent transmission.
- Also best to use lubricant during sex to prevent yourself getting outbreak.
I have heard that it will tricker a virus to be active because it will irritate that area. Anyhow since I got diagnosed. I have been shaving and found no problem with it make sure you wet and soap it before shaving and moisturising after shave. Even worse than that I had an IPL full Brazilian laser many time. It is not a problem for me. I guess different people would have different effects and outcome. You may try it first and see.
