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.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
