You can shed anywhere in your genital region. Also the longer you have this the less you shed.

Here is a good article that talks about shedding. As you can see it really isn't that easy to pass this along:

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

Good luck!

I did have a chat about this recently with a doctor during my H review. Doctors seem to be far more cautious about H shedding regardless of how many yrs you're carrying this virus.

Certainly, doctors strongly insist on using condoms & anti-viral no matter how many yrs you have had H.
