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 have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.

      Here is the full science and documentation behind the herpes patent . RNA GUIDED ERADICATION OF HERPES SIMPLEX TYPE I AND OTHER RELATED HERPESVIRUSES   https://patents.justia.com/patent/20180000970   I hope this will help answer your questions.

      The fact that there are so many people contracting hsv-1 genitally from as little as one sexual encounter leads me to believe that it likely more 'tuned' to the genital region than medicine realizes.
