Outbreak Frequency

Recommended Posts


Hi, I'm new to this forum. Genital Herpes in tow.

I have a question that maybe some could help me out with.

Is there any proof of a correlation between outbreak frequency and transmission odds?

I've had 2 outbreaks. One was my primary outbreak which sucked :) and then I had a another one a few months after which was MUCH more mild. But since then I have had no visual outbreaks. It's been almost 3 years.

I know that shedding will always occur...but do you think it occurs less and less the longer you are asymptomatic?

Yes shedding does decrease the longer you have this virus, however you still can never know when you are shedding. Here is a good article about transmission rates:


Come to the Chat Room, there you will meet many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!
