What can we do in the bedroom?

Recommended Posts

Dragonfly07

I contracted HSV2 about 3 months ago. Ironically I met an amazing guy not too long after and I couldn't be happier with how things are going. We have been intimate but I don't feel like I can't completely be myself because I'm not sure what we can do and what we cant. He doesn't have HSV so I fear that I will give it to him. I know there will always be a risk for him no matter if we use protection or not. I just feel that I could be more confident with that part of our relationship and not hold back as much if I knew exactly what our boundaries were in terms of protecting him. Any suggestions???? :)

Hi there, welcome to the website.  You have come to the best place for support about this virus.  

Here are a couple of links that talk about transmission risks, read them and you will feel better.

I have met many married people here over the years who have been married decades and never passed it to their spouse.  Personally I have had it a long time and have been intimate with a dozen women and almost all of that sex was unprotected and I never spread it either.  

If you just acquired this virus that is when you are most at risk of spreading it so take antivirals and refrain from sex if you have any symptoms and you should be ok.

Good luck!

JB

Thank you for your response. So there is hope that I could have unprotected sex one day? I feel like I would be too afraid to. Thank you for the links, they are helpful. :)

Yes for sure, most people with HSV-2 do have unprotected sex. I have unprotected sex with my partner a few times a week! You will become more comfortable over time, give it a little patience.

      Medical knowledge in the 50s doubled every 50 years. But guess how fast the knowledge is doubling now? 1 year. Cures are coming. This is why there is a worldwide debate on healthcare. Some want to own your health others want the cures for free. You being desperate will trample on the next person to get it whereas someone else will hope the cure is free for all.  The fight isn't for a cure anymore it's for who owns the cure. The people or the elite. With medical knowledge doubling every year and soon every 6 months with the assistance of AI a cure will be ready by 2025.  Finally the west has competition who wants to be the world's leader; China. They want to cure diseases because they want rid of capitalism and religion. May the winner have it all.

      This isn't some 1940s crime detective novel mate! We don't have process of elimination, we have active diagnosis. But to hell with that. You do not have to prove anything to doctors. They're just a bunch of clowns with meaningless tests! You're the man, you make the decisions. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don't, you're right. Be a man, be confident, if you have HSV-2 then own up to it. Stop camping around at doctors offices. Stride right back to that girl in your loosest jocks with lots of stretch room for those swollen gonads. Slam open the bedroom door and announce you're here to show her what a night with real man feels like, minus Trojans!

      To answer your question, I have been living with pain and burning in my penis for a year now.  My symptoms started within 48 hours of attempted sex with someone who has HSV2. Doctors can’t figure it out.  I’m 90% certain HSV2 is the culprit.  All my issues started directly after the exposure.  Itching, tingling, constipation, nerve burning, testicle pain and back pain. And they all come and go. I only got a large bump in my pubic area days after the exposure.  A large amount of people with herpes don’t get typical looking lesions, so you can’t base it on that.   Hopefully you find your answer.  I pretty much have mine but have to prove it to my doctors by way of elimination.

      OMG if I had only known that 5 years ago... doctors have no clue of this.
