Ok I have questions I can not find the answers to anywhere on line I am sorry about the graphic details in advance..

Can I ever receive oral sex saftly without infecting the person?

if they have the same strain as you there is no issue at all. if they have the other strain then there is some measure of protection for them. if you are on suppressive medications then their risk is low.

2.when I am doing this shedding thing does that mean anywhere my vagina touches on my partner can give herpes?

not automatic. uncut or unchafed skin is a strong barrier

3.will I still get oral outbreaks on valtrex?

maybe yes, maybe no. Often not, as this is what valtrex combats.

4.how do I know my outbreak is over what if its internal and I let someone penetrate me with fingers, can they tranfer it somewhere else?

if you wait "days" or a week after the outbreak, you can be rather sure, but not 100%

5.can I ever put my own fluids in my mouth with out getting a cold sore?

Once you have had this virus for "weeks" your antibodies should be built up enough to prevent self infection elsewhere. But exercise good hygiene anyway

6.Are Vibrators still safe to use or do I have to bleach It after use?

Bleach not necessary. Normal soap and water lightly applied is enough. Even without this even, the virus will die within seconds on an inanimate object.

7. I am allergic to latex so what do I do now?

Long answer won't fit here :) Read lots of stuff here and get educated. Lots of people get this even with condoms. So using condoms is a bit of a non issue anyway.

8. can the birth control ring irritate me into an outbreak?

Dunno

9.is it safe for people to have bare hands on my vagina?

If they have no cuts or abrasions, then transmission is rare.

10.how safe do I have to be to ensure I dont spread this?

Again long answer. You need to study.

11.can you get herpes in your anal area?

Yes

12.if my partner has it can I give oral sex if there is not an outbreak or do I use a dental dam everytime?

If you have the same strain, as in the answer above, then there is no issue at all. You cannot get it twice. No sex during outbreaks is also a good rule. Lots of other things are exposed to any open skin issues, whether herpes related or not.

13,do unaffected partners take suppresive meds to help them stay clean?

Forget the word clean in this context. You have more bacteria and virus activity, on the inside and outside of your body, than you can imagine. This is all part of this human life exercise. The non herpes carriers don't take medications.

14.has anyone ever saftly had unprotective sex when not having a breakout?

Absolutely. Personally hundreds of times. In humanity, billions of times.

15. what are the important steps I must now take when I am sexually with someone?

Be educated yourself about what this little virus is and is not. And inform them, so they can choose to take the risk with you or not.

16.how do you hide the pain,sideffects ,burning,itching from people. because it was almost impossible to work like this.

The symptoms usually become less, much less. Sometimes within days. In general, the first year can be the toughest, with the symptoms getting much less as time goes on.

17.who do you tell besides your sex partners that you have this? any advise on being open or not being open?

Only potential sex partners need to know. But if you have family or friends that you really trust, you could tell them, just for the support aspect.

18 will I ever forget I have this and stop obsessing?

Yes. Once you learn the truth about this, and have it in proper, truthful perspective.

19. is there a chance of a healthy dating life ahead?

Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely.

I have to tell you I was so freaked out that i swore I would never have sex again! After looking into your reply I researched a ton and thank god I feel as if I am not "dirty" anymore. My partner thanks you because passion is in his future again with me! I do wonder about sex with a same sex partner since its always unprotected, Mr. Honest I my stump you on this one but I wonder how safe it is to be with a woman in the future...? Thanks agaian..I cant find anything on best condoms second to latex antwhere..but I am once again getting to love my body and self again! Love life!

Woman to woman or man to man the same concepts apply. Skin to skin contact is how this virus hops, skips, and jumps along with us from generation to generation.

Mr. Honest- Thanks for your answers, although I'm still having a VERY hard time believing I will ever have a normal sex life again.

      Kelly bean yes I had an ulcer in my mouth. I know it' unusual but as soon as he had told me that I got it swabbed and it came back positive. Then I had a blood test and that came back positive as well.   Anon222 Thank you it's just incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Especially being such a new thing to me.  It will change things though. I will never rest easy. I will always be worried about getting another one come up, I will have to pay expenses for preventative measures. I will have to tell everyone that wants to kiss me (not that I go around just kissing people but as this is life long never know how many people that may be) so it will be changing a lotg for me. I will never feel comfortable just kissing someone anymore. I will always be worried about passing it onto them. It changes my whole life. I will never be able to kiss a new born baby (If I ever have another child)  I will not be able to do so many things without stress and worry for the rest of my life:(

      Hey there Chicken, I agree with what helpme said. Really no one cares about OHSV-1. Not to diminish your feelings but I just want you to know that it’s going to be okay. You honestly don’t have to worry about this at all. As he also said you are now in the MAJORITY of people. Please just go on living your normal life this should not change anything at all! Good luck!

      I know blood test doesn't tell location. I know i have it orally since i had it as a child but i dont have any breakouts at all, the last breakout i remember was inside my lips when i was a kid. Like me my friends and my gf we are all asymptomatic orally. im just worried if the above mention symptoms say i have ghsv1?  and about disclosure im happy to tell. im not scared of it im just worried if i got it in the genitals, although all my doctors say im fine.

      I don’t understand this post. You seem highly concerned of having herpes for someone who already tested positive for herpes. Your girlfriend has tested positive for herpes. What more is there to freak out about? Blood tests do not tell you location, are you worried if you break up how you will handle disclosure To someone else? That’s where I’m getting confused.
