question99999

Recommended Posts

I have tested positive for HSV1 and HSV2. My partner is positive for HSV1 only. My question is If i give her oral sex can she contract HSV2 from me ? also what 'other' things can we do without her being worried about getting HSV2 from me ? Thanks !

Probably... you have hsv2 genitally and hsv1 orally.

That means if she has any contact with your genitals (anywhere in the boxer short region, front and back), she could catch the hsv2.... with her genitals from "regular" sex or even she can get hsv2 orally if she gives you oral sex. Supposedly oral HSV2 is rare but it does happen.

If you kiss her genitals you could spread hsv1 to her genitals (but probably not the hsv2, cause again, that is most likely located in your genitals not your mouth), even if you don't have a cold sore present. That doesn't happen super often but many on these boards can attest that you can catch genital hsv1 thru oral sex with an asymptomatic partner.

Other than using good sense (no contact while having an outbreak or prodromal symptoms) condoms and dental dams can reduce transmission but not completely. You also can consider suppressive therapy.

The Best advice anyone can give is to ask your doctor or a very informed person from here that can give you the correct answer that you are looking for.

it will ALWAYS be a risk for her to get type 2 from you no matter how many precautions you try and take. Suppressive therapy MIGHT help lessen the shedding of the virus but cannot fully protect your g/f or anyone else from contracting the virus from you.

Yeah my girlfriend has hsv2 and I plan to have oral sex as well as unprotected sex with her worse thing to happen is I get hsv2 in both area's but also if you clean with soap and water before that helps alot and there are topical solutions you can buy to help as well.

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
