HSV 1 to HSV 2?

Recommended Posts

Just have a thought...ok hypothetical situation...male completely clean...female HSV-1...if the male gets oral sex (receives) from the female can he get HSV-2? Or will it be HSV-1 genitally? Does she have to have symptoms (cold sores) or can she just spread it without any? What if she has just like a tiny pimple like whitehead type thing on her lip, does that count as an outbreak?

I have both hsv1 & 2 and I am very clean!

If a female with hsv1 oral gives oral sex to a guy, then the guy could get hsv1 genital even if they girl did not have an outbreak. Although that is very hard to do since hsv1 does not like to be genital. If the tiny pimple she has on her lips is herpes then yes, that is an outbreak.

Good luck!

Thanks for answering my question!! That makes sense because HSV-1 and HSV-2 are two different types of viruses from the same virus. If that makes sense not really ha. Anyways, I was wondering, another hypothetical situation. Male has both types (1 and 2) and female is clean. If these individuals make out (kiss), can she get both types or only type one? Does the male have to have any symptoms (outbreaks) for her to get type one or type two? I'm sure if the male has type 2 orally then the female can get it but it is rare because type 2 doesn't wanna occur orally, right? Can it transfer without any symptoms just by kissing?

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
