Oral Sex Questions

Recommended Posts

caliherpegal

I was just wondering if my male partner has oral hsv-1 and I have genital hsv-2, is it okay for him to give me unprotected oral sex? Since he already has herpes there? We use condoms for vaginal sex.

This is also my question.

Technically, it is possible for him to get HSV2 and you to get HSV1.

My BF has oral HSV1, and he hasn't had a problem. But be careful.

There are female condoms you can use, which isn't as fun, but it helps keep viruses from spreading.

If he alrady has oral HSV 1, the chance of him also contracting type 2 orally is practically non-existent. His antibodies should protect him quite nicely. And... even if he did, he'd never know anyway. One ob is the same as another...type 1 or type 2, it's still just an ob. Stop worrying and enjoy one another. ;)

Hi there

:wavey:I really wanted to ask a similar question. I have hsv type 1. I just got a new partner who has hsv type 2. I'm female and just wanted to know seeing as u all seem so knowledgable if u could help me to understand this situation about me being unlikely to catch type 2. I'm very scared he has an ob at the moment and I'd just like to know what u guys think cos he's been taking the blue pills the whole time. We have only protected sex but not orally. Can anyone help. Please thanks so much. Much love the fiend. Also my son is going away tonight and that only happens once a month so it's very rare. Just for the one night. We are both very sexual and wanna make the most of it. He saw the ob yesterday. Can u tell me what u think? :(

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      Doesn't this suck. Using protection and still catching this BS. Uggh, my life story!!

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
