possible outbreak?? transmission??

Recommended Posts

Im a female, have has genital hsv2 for 3 yrs, and take antiviral daily- Im fairly familar with my outbreaks and recently while checking very closely with a mirror I just noticed one single small pimple. Not sure if it was an outbreak or not, I only noticed because I took a mirror and was looking hard. I had sex that night, with a condom, the pimple was in an area that I think really only touches the condom area, meaning I dont think there was totally skin to skin contact.

Does it sound like an outbreak spot, and what are his chances of catching it??

Hey summerz, welcome to our site :) . I too have ghsv2 for 25 years now . I take supressive therapy, always have. Noone can say if this is another outbreak. Just relax and see what happens. The condom does not fully protect from h because it doesn't cover the entire area. Has he ever tested for h specifically? 80% has h in one form or another, they never properly test, therefore they never know. Just relax we as woman get pimples from all sorts of things, hairs, shaving. It will be okay, just don't stress. Has your doctor said you could double up during those prodrome symptom times. I do. My husband is still non h man, 22 years now. Take care truly, Ace :hithere:

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
