Oral Sex Question

Recommended Posts

jimx1000

I have type 2, diagnosed in August after getting it beg of july. If an uninfected girl gives me oral sex she can get it in her mouth correct? I had it at the base of my penis during my first and only outbreak in july 2 days after exposure but from what I understand the opening of the penis can pass the virus very easy correct(if shedding is occuring). I dont want to give some girl type 2 in her mouth!

Yes, you could, only HSV2 orally is the rarest type and has a *very* low reactivation rate. But there are always exceptions.

I agree with lizabeth, i have genital herpes, so does my partner.. we both give and recieve oral sex but have never had an OB in the mouth.

Obviously we dont do it when one of us has an active OB.

My Dr says it is possible though, i have also read on this site and others that it is possible...

Maybe it would be an idea to google the question and see what comes up. The more you know the more you can manage it.

Good luck....

I contracted type 2 in my mouth, this way. They say it has a low reactivation rate, but I'm getting outbreaks every couple of weeks - it really sucks, and the primary outbreak was a nightmare. So I would recommend having any girl who gives you oral wear a condom (and don't do it during an OB, obvs).

Hi Again

I feel i must amend my last post because since writing to you i have an OB in my mouth.... i have two small blisters on the inside and one small blister on my lip..

I realize now that i have had blisters (singular and tiny) on my lip before but dismissed it as a white head or a pimple...

Sorry to give conflicting answers my intention is not to confuse.... i am learning more each day just as i hope you are...

Good luck....

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?

      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...
