Recommended Posts

I'm bisexual, I have HSV 1 orally, caught it off my ex boyfriend and I don't wanna pass it to another gal as for the time being I am through with men.

What are your tips for dealing with it so I don't pass it on?

Use dental dams when you give oral sex, if your female partner is okay with that. Abstain from oral sex while having an outbreak.

Honestly, I have HSV1 orally and i warn all my partners before i touch their genitals with my mouth. But since most people have HSV1 or the antibodies for HSV1/2, it doesn't concern them or me. I let them choose if they want to use a condom during oral sex.

Your female partner may already get cold sores. So this means you are highly highly highlllyyyy unlikely to spread it to her genitals.

Having oral HSV 1 MAY protect you from getting genital HSV 1 - there is still a risk.

I would doubt the risk is high. Having the antibodies for HSV1 will equip your body to destroy it, especially if you have had it for many years. If it is your first HSV1 outbreak, or you've never had an outbreak, then yes, there is still a risk.

Having HSV1 does give some protection against HSV2, though. Not guranteed. Not even 100% positive it will give protection to all people. But for some, it seems to be the case.

I have seen too many people come here where that risk; however small; has become a reality even for those that have had many years.

Your body doesn't "destroy" the virus, it learns to suppress it.

      No I’m sorry the only person that needs to be reported is you. Your posts are unacceptable by societal standards, that’s plain to all readers. Your damage to people with HSV is reprehensible. The only person bashing is you, until your attitude changes and you grow up, there is no place for you on this website.

      Okay,  here's an update... the new site that was bothering me this morning looks clearer and is no longer raised but it's still red.  I've started using tea tree oil mixed with coconut after someone suggested it.   I didn't take an extra dose so I don't know if it was the oil or the medicine.   I'm driving myself nuts with all of this.

      @WilsoInAus 

      The truth of the matter is that you have no idea what you're talking about.  You seriously have issues trying to tell someone about how they suffer, what their test results are.  You apparently suffer from HSV-1 oral based on your profile and you're here for who knows why...sure you must suffer a lot or possibly none at all.  Either way most of the population is okay with someone have HSV-1 orally.  HSV-2 Genital & Oral is a different ballgame for obvious reasons. 

      You think that by my symptoms which include 5 oral lesions since exposure and test results aren't good enough.  I don't need to post my results online to let the world see.  In fact I am done explaining myself. 

      THIS IS A SUPPORT COMMUNITY NOT A BASH COMMUNITY. YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO BASH PEOPLE FOR LORD KNOW WHAT REASON.  You attempt to manipulate my character with your slander of my character.  The only person proving them self of poor character here is yourself.  

      I have reported you. You have no reason to be here, you are the classical keyboard warrior-troll. I have every right to be pissed off and trust me if I could. I would beat the shit out of you, bc you need lessons learned.  You're alien trying to tell another human being his/her symptoms and feelings.  FUCK OFF. I will never reply to you again. I don't care how much you try to stir the pot. You have lost all credibility and you have nothing better to do than try to demoralize other people. You're a shitty human being.

      @Tone123 could of points. A person with genital herpes is already infected through their entire genital area as marked out roughly by a pair of boxer shorts. Once your immune system is in full swing (a few months from infection) then further infection of the same type, regardless of any sub strains, is of negligible chance.

      You can have HIV for many years without developing AIDs, if that is what you're asking.
