Lesbian sex and herpes

Recommended Posts

hullaballoo

I'm a bisexual woman and may have (only have had a 'guess' / diagnosis from a nurse, so far) genital herpes. I more than likely have caught it from my only male sexual partner a couple of months ago. I am more often involved with women and wanted to know what precautions I have to take when having sex with a woman? I read somewhere that it is very rare for someone to contract genital herpes when giving oral to someone who has it, or fingering someone who has it. If this is the case, is lesbian sex pretty safe for someone with herpes? I know no sex is 100% safe from std transmission... but the odds make it seem less likely... right?

Hi elmerette,

I am a lesbian who just began dating a woman with HSV-2. I was fairly knowledgeable before this experience and of course did more research after learning about her condition. I would love to ask you some questions. You seem to be very knowledgeable, open, and understanding.

Hi,

I am new to the site. I'm a 21 year old lesbian and i just found out about an hour ago that i have HSV-1...

I am in a relationship with a girl, who I think is not effected. I am really very much so im shock...

I was hoping someone could help me out a bit and educate me as to how to proceed and go about life now that I have Hsv-1.

I certainly don't want to infect my gf... can we no longer kiss? is everything else off limits too?

anything would be really really helpful... thank you in advance...

Be sure to learn a lot from this site. Over 70 percent of people have HSV1. It is extremely common. Your girlfriend can also get a blood test, she may also have it already, and either one of you could have had this since childhood.

Pump up your immune system with eating right, sleeping, exercising and reducing stress. There are things you will read about on this site like lysine that can help prevent. And there are also a few drugs that can suppress outbreaks.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
