safe to have sex?

Recommended Posts


I'm in a long-distance relationship with an uninfected partner who knows about my condition. He's coming down to visit me on Wednesday.

The thing is, I think I'm having my first outbreak (I didn't really have a primary outbreak, just a heinous UTI) in a year since being infected! It's pretty mild, not even a blister; the area near my clitoris is just sore. It started hurting on Friday, right after my period had started and i had drank a lot the night prior.

I'm going to take an extra dose of Acyclovir tonight, and I've also started to apply Purell to the infected area.

Do you think by Wednesday or Thursday I would be safe to be intimate?

Well, that only gives you today, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednsday for your body to suppress the virus and it to go back into hiding...unfortunately I believe even if your symptoms have cleared up by then you can still pass the virus on b/c it may not have completely retreated...you're suppose to wait a few days after the area has healed I've read...If you can't wait use a condom and keep taking your antivirals.

      What was the comment? I don't see it on their official Facebook Given the recent news that Crispr can result in all sorts of erroneous cuts when double strand breaks are involved, I'm surprised to hear they still believe they will run trials in a few months. The FDA recently blocked ex vivo crispr trials, I can't imagine them letting in vivo trials move forward given the recent reports

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.
