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 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.
