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? :(

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
