Recommended Posts

this has probably been asked on here before, but i havent been able to find out. how many people still use condoms in a committed relationship? im on acyclovir and my outbreaks have been non-existent but still use condoms just in case.... until last night. it was great. and now we're debating on whether or not to continue with condoms. thoughts?

hey. I wasnt using condoms before I had H. and my bf is negative. probably I had it before we were together. we had unprotected sex for 3 months and he is still H free. But I am really scared of the get him caught because I had 2 OB in 2 month :( and start on suppresive treatmeant. and I offered him to use condoms. he seems that he doesnt want it but he saw my concer about that ı dont wanna cause him to get infected.. I think if you still less your chance to transmit you should keep using condoms. :)

Hi oreo, no we use to use them, but he stopped it fully a year ago. He is still non h man after 22 years, he and I have never used protections for oral and now none sexy times either :) .

Out of 3 relationships, 1 never, 1 sometimes, 1 always. I don't know how I feel about long term relationships with condoms. I hate them but it's kind of a necessary evil in the beginning. But, and I know this is selfish of me, I don't think I would want to use them for the next 20 years with the same guy. I think that's mostly down to terrible experiences with them though in my case!

I am HSV2 positive with a partner HSV1 positive. We do not use condoms and after several years so far no indication of her getting any genital infection. I do take Valtrex when I feel an OB however my OB's are very mild and heal very quick. Others in this forum have expressed they dont use condoms and have not passed it to partners by using antivirals and avoiding sex during an OB.....So the probability of passing it to a partner is going to vary depending on the H status of the partner, the use of antivirals and your sex frequency but also how the partner view this condition. In my case perhaps her HSV1, plus the valtrex is helping or just pure luck or the fact that we she has not "stress" over getting it....hope this helps...

Hey mrroboto, excellent post :) !! Exactly how we feel. In the I begged he use condoms, as years passed we just limited them. He is still non h man, and yes I'm still on daily antivirals.

Well said everything in this post that I absolutely agree with. Good job :) . Truly, Ace :hithere:

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
