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

      yea I am on them.  Been taking them for about 8 months now.  I reckon they're good for general well being too, cause I am not as tired as I used to be and I didn't get the flu this year.  My blisters stopped after about the third month, but I really don't know if I am still positive or not, cbf doing a blood test and I am not dating so I don't mind not knowing for now.  But I am happy to stay on them for a while.

      "We predict that transmission is unlikely at viral loads less than 104 HSV DNA copies" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4006256/ The above quote suggests that transmission can take place with 10,000 copies (104).

      See this article.  I would say that it is Herpes.   I have burning mouth syndrome and have to take a lot of antivirals.  Was valtrex then famicyclovir, then acyclovir.  https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/50455-burning-mouth-syndrome-herpes.html

      Sorry to tell you, but I have the same thing.  Probably HSV 1.  It was not as bad as before, but when I kissed certain people it would get worse.  The last person I dated had HSV 1 and now I have it as burning mouth syndrome.  So here is the article.  I get tingles everywhere if I get saliva on me no matter where you kiss me.  So trigeminal area and my skin.  When the I guess initial outbreak was happening, I was getting fever and skin irritations everywhere.  Now I try to be careful not to kiss my partner  anywhere or touch my eyes etc, I do not need to spread it anywhere. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/50455-burning-mouth-syndrome-herpes.html
