safe to have sex?

Recommended Posts

goodmorning

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.
