Just curious?

Recommended Posts



Ok so I read here that chlorine in pools and hot tubs kill the virus so if i take a swim in a pool or use a hot tub , others that go in after me wont get H....So here's my question....If you have sex with someone in a pool or a hot tub or even in the shower...what are the chances of infecting them?.....This may a stupid question but the only way for me to get an answer is to ask....lol

Skin to skin contact is the normal method of transmission of HSV. Even if the virus moves from your skin to plain old water with no chemicals in it, it will die quickly. I think that once penetration happens, the opportunity for the virus to transfer, if shedding is occurring, rises quite a bit.
