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.

      Hey so I have told a few people when I was first diagnosed and panicky. My mother knows, and 3 close friends and honestly to my surprise they were very supportive and just wanted to make sure I was okay, they still invite me out like usual nothing has changed and atleast one of them gets oral coldsores it's the same damn thing. I dont tell coworkers I draw the line there and I don't tell men who are interested in me it's not their business unless I choose to become physical with them and therefore risk transmition. I have been dating through a herpes dating site and it's been working out well for me I'm not totally sure I want to be "out" to everyone because the world is still the world and their are immature people out there.

      Just tell him you have been thinking about it and you want to go get tested with him. Don't believe anyone until you see their paperwork

      Amazon has it in bulk and caps

      Make sure you see his results on paper!!!

      I've used it to effectively abort an outbreak immediately. See here: Pretty convinced of the combo for this. Never had any success like that before ever. Will 100% keep using it.
