Yes you can have sex without spreading the virus

There is always a chance that you could give her genital herpes and she could give you oral herpes. However, using common sense, suppressive meds and condoms you can lessen the chances to really low numbers.

There are plenty of statistics on this site that can tell you the chances of transmission using various methods I described above.

From my personal experience, I have this 'gift' any years and have never passed it along. When I am dating someone I take 400mg of acyclovir and 1000mg of lysine a day. However, everyone is different so even with this suppressive therapy I realize I can still pass it along.

Good luck!

JB

JBnATL, he was asking about if they have the same type, not just in general...

If she has the same type as you, even if it's in a different location, generally you cannot "pass it back and forth," so to speak. So she won't re-catch it somewhere else and you won't re-catch it somewhere else.

There are a couple of exceptions--if either of you are having an outbreak, or if one of you has a very recent infection (just a couple of months). Then it may be possible.
