protected but still at risk?

Recommended Posts


i've been dating my boyfriend for 2 years and we havent had sex, but we do want to... he knows that i have genital herpes (for 3 years) and is good about it, but i was wondering if there are solid statisics on the chances of passing it on that can make us both more comfortable about it? i take L-Lyisine 1000mg every day, have a very healthy diet and have very few outbreaks, none very recent. between using a condom and the fact that the virus may not even be present (i have found from my reaserch there are only a few days a year when there is unoticed viral shedding?) what are the chances of this being passed on? are there solid statistics/numbers on it?

we both realize we wont be together forever, but he does want children someday, with whoever he ends up with, and i dont want to jeopardize that in any way. i love him and need to know he is safe.

thanks so much for any advice and information :)

      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.
