kinda a stupid question

Recommended Posts

i feel like this is a weird question, but i am very curious...

my infection is in a concentrated area on my thigh... if i am intimate with someone, would putting a latex bandage over that area reduce the risk of transmission, if i might have viral-shedding?

seems logical...

Thats not stupid thats a pretty good question...

I have Genital herps but it is above in my pubic area pretty far away from my special area and i asked my doctor and planning parent hood and they both told me that keeping my boxers on while having sex would help prevent it more than a condom would? So in your case putting something over it would really help alot as far as i was informed.

now i have a question about that! my boyfriend gets his obs on his thighs and wears boxers with sex (he doesnt know i know he has it ... i just got diagnosed with herpes now too) ... but how does it work if he gets them on his thighs and i get mine around my crotch? lol shouldnt we both have the same type of herpes?

Well the only reason i can think of is if he wasnt covered one time and his thigh touched your area while you guys were being intimate...Or the possibility that he has it other places such as his mouth and gave you oral?

those are just maybe's i really dont know i just know what both doctors told me hey maybe there crazy and if so somone needs to tell me!! LOL

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
