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.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
