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.

      Doesn't this suck. Using protection and still catching this BS. Uggh, my life story!!

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me
