Would you risk contracting the other type?

Recommended Posts

I've been dating H+ positive people since being diagnosed in May, and most interested in dating people with the same type. I met a guy who claimed he was the same type, but once tested showed he was actually positive for the other. I now find myself very concerned about contracting the other type. I know it's probably not good to limit myself-- but know how I reacted when I was initially diagnosed and not sure I could put myself through that again. Any thoughts???

Having one type does give you certain protection against getting the other.  

You have this virus, why let this fear prevent you from being with someone who could make you very happy?

Great there is H-datingsites where you live, I miss that here. So good you found someone, congrats!

Well if I was in your situation, I would be very happy with him. If you can deal with one of the H twins, you can deal with two. And as JB says, your body is prepared.  And both of you know how to best avoid contracting it.

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
