Chance of cross infection(both partners have it)

Recommended Posts

NTR

what is the chance of cross infection of hsv2 when both partners have it? we both have it and have only had one OB. today she has two bumps on her pelvis just above her vagina. i have no symptoms but i performed oral sex on her yesterday. so its been 24 hours. i havent had an OB since my first in march. the shitty thing is, she felt under the weather on thursday and i should of thought that she may get an OB. so anyone know the amount of risk i have of contracting HSV orally because i gave her oral sex before an OB? or do i not have a real risk because i already have it genitally?

I think the risks are the same orally and genitally. I don't know, I've had hsv1 genitally for two years now. I rarely get obs and I've been given lots of oral and neither of the two partners got oral herpes with out using condoms or taking valtrex. Generally I think that if you're not having obs, and you have a good immune system the chances are there but slim. I don't really think anyone really knows the actual percentage of this virus.

well from what i understand is that if you have type2 and she does also in the genital area, the chances of you getting it orally is possible but slim because type 2 lkes the genital area, i dont think its as easy to catch as if you had type 1 in the genital area cuz type 1 prefers the mouth area more so that type2 and if you take suppressive medications that helps but if she is shedding during that time or is having an ob, the risk is higher, but not as common

      No it won't go up forever, I know I have been infected for a long time. Some people in here have values in the 50s. it just gives you an idea of where those numbers can go from here. The more antibodies you have the better off you are and at least you know your immune system is building those antibodies. I hope you do really well!

      The number doesn’t matter very much in terms of your experience with herpes. Your immune system has 80 elements that address HSV and your experience is related to the combined effort of these 80 elements. I’d suggest this partner is very probably infected and has been for a while.

      Obviously zero percent transmission rates can't be assured with the combination of Pritevilir and Valtrex. But I think it's safe to assume based on what we know that their effects will be cumulative and they'll work better together than they would separately, since they're halting viral replication by different methods. Pritelivir inhibits the enzyme helicase, where Valtrex inhibits the enzyme polymerase. If it were the case, for example, that Pritelivir were also going after polymerase and did a better job of halting it than Valtrex, then we would just take Pritelivir by itself with no more need for Valtrex. But that's not the case. Since the approaches of halting replication are different, a "cocktail" of the two drugs is certain to be more effective than taking just one or the other.  More on how Valtrex and Pritelivir work here: https://www.acsh.org/news/2018/06/12/herpes-vaccines-dont-work-what-about-drugs-pritelivir-page-aids-playbook-13074

      lyme disease can be sexually transmitted, keep us posted about it hope your tests are negative

      Yeah I'm pretty sure it's from him but I don't know why he would lie about being negative since we were still together and I said I was already positive. Maybe he was infected right before we met? Is higher the number better? How do the antibodies work over time? Will it continually go up forever?
