Couple questions about H+ sex

Recommended Posts

all around good guy

So, I'm just curious about a couple things.

If I have sex with someone that also has hsvII, do we have to worry about transferring to each other, let's say we do oral or anal and shed not infected there, will she get infected there too? Or would it be fine because she has the antibodies already to fight it off. Not on outbreaks of coarse.

Second. Is there any way to tell if your shedding asymptomaticly. Such as, I have had one outbreak so far, so time will tell how many ihave. But I know that I could shed without the outbreak. Is there a way to know? Like a special tingle, or a feeling of any sort. Or is there such a thing as a cream that I could put on that detects the virus so I could put it on and tell whether or not I'm shedding?

And how long do I need to wait after an outbreak to have sex again? Is it that if there is still a little redness, I'm still shedding? Or do I need to wait a few days after there is no physical signs of an outbreak? How do I work that?

That's all for now. I'm sure I have more but that's all I can think of for now.

I'm not a specialist but what my doctor said is:

1. It is possible to spread the virus to other parts of your body - e.g. some guys get ghsv1 from masturbating, but chances are low. getting hsv2 orally is rare.

2. There is no way to tell if you're shedding. I'm asymptomatic so far but I bet I'm shedding.

3. It's best if you wait three days after all the symptoms have gone away.

Thank you bestronger for he reply. It would be nice if they could make the magic cream I was talking about... Put it on your affected spot before you have sex, it turns color or makes a burning sensation if the H virus is present, and it there's no reaction, then your good to go. Just wash it off and have fun. Lol. I wish that was possible. That would make living with H much less scary. That seems possible to me... Lol. And thank you for letting me know about spreading it andabout waiting 3 days after the OB. Probably not a problem waiting cuz I don't feel sexy at all. Not to get too graphic, but I haven't even been waking up with a little soldier saluting me in the morning like I usually do. So I don't see that being a problem, yet.

      I am taking the same medication, and I have noticed that on occasion, it does come back, not as horrible as when it first began happening, but like little patches, small areas. I'd just refill my prescription, take as directed, and it'd go away. I took my last pill today, and I have been talking vitamins every day. Did not know about elderberry, I've been taking tumeric, B12, echinacea, vitamin C, lysine, cranberry and anything else that helps promote immune health as well as skin.
