We both have HSV2 so he say's we...

Recommended Posts


I am with someone who also has HSV2 (so we both have it). I thought we could still give it to eachother orally if we have oral sex...he said that is not true. He also said that we can still have sex when he has an outbreak because his are really mild and it wont do anything to me since I already have it.

Does anyone know or have any advice regarding this?

Thank you:wavey:

Since you both have it you have antibodies in your system that will help prevent you from getting it oral. However there is still a really small chance you can get it oral. You will just have to decide if that is a risk you want to take. If you both are taking antivirals that lessens the chance even more.

Never have sex when one of you has an outbreak. It could make his even worse and could cause one in you.

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

Good luck!

The risk of getting it orally is very small. Also, you cannot be re-infected with the virus genitally, so having sex with him while he has an outbreak will not do anything adverse except cause him pain. I would suggest avoiding that, because it will shorten his healing time. My partner and I have had hsv for a little over a year and a half, and have continued a pretty healthy oral sex life, with no problem. Good luck.

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
