Transmission on Antivirals/Condoms? First Year - Male to Female

Recommended Posts

NatureIsCruel

Has anyone here in the first year of contracting HSV-2 transmitted it from male to female while complying with suppression therapy (1 gram of valacyclovir a day) - and if so did they use condoms or not? 

Background: I got HSV2 on my dick at the start of this year. I've had a ton of OBs since then so I've started suppressive therapy. It seems to keep OBs down/increase healing. Now an old girlfriend (from before I got HSV2) called me up, we've been talking and she made it clear she wants to have sex this weekend. 

For the love of god please DO NOT make this about disclosure talks or quote statistics about transmission and antivirals, etc.; they include condoms and usually people who've had it for a long time and I'm already going to talk to her about it. What I'm more concerned about is whether people who followed that still end up transmitting it. I'm especially concerned as all the data I see says shedding is significantly higher the first year. I want to have sex again with her but christ, if she gets it....

 I Suggest you go to the chatroom around 8pm est.  You can express your concerns and get answers.
