That's entirely up to you and your partner. Personally, I'd strongly recommend it for short-term relationships, not only because of the H, but also for protection (yours as well as hers) from other STD's as well.

In a long-term relationship, I can't see myself opting for a condom. At this point, I should tell you that I was/am in a long-term relationship with someone with herpes. We never used condoms or any other kind of protection (mutual decision) and now I have herpes, too. It took several years to contract it, but you know the law of averages. No big deal. I'm fine with it, and in fact, it was almost a relief. One less thing to worry about, and one less impediment to a more carefree love life... you know? But that's just me.

Like I said, though, only you and your partner can make the decision about using protection. Symptom-free, it's really unlikely that you'll pass it on, especially if you're on meds. Sometimes though, it's better to be safe than sorry, particularly in short-term relationships. It sucks to have some hysterical, angry person call you up and accuse you of ruining their life. Nobody wants that, and there's always that one, small chance that you shed that one crummy skin cell that could start the ball rolling for someone else.

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
