Can I give someone HSV2 through kissing?

Recommended Posts

PurpleandGray

I have HSV2 and do get very small sores on the sides of my mouth. Can I give someone HSV2 just by kissing them? I know I could give them it through oral sex but since I heard HSV2 doesn't like the mouth area an I ok not discoursing if I just kiss someone?

Hi @PurpleandGray your testing was conclusive, you do not have HSV-2. Did you obtain the Westernblot for additional comfort?

You have nothing to disclose, however you might like to ask the question of a potential partner and mutually test before sexual activity to alleviate any concerns.

A person with genital HSV-2, cannot infect anyone by kissing them.

Are you serious lol I was confirmed by blood test a few months ago that I do have HSV2. It just must have took long to turn positive but it was positive through igg. If you don't believe me I'll post my paperwork lol.

If you have genital HSV 2 and you do your research you will see that is contracted through genital to genital skin contact and yes if someone gives you oral sex there is a possibility that they could contracted on their mouth but it is rare.  Kissing someone is only risking a oral HSV 1 infection and you do not have that

if you have ohsv-2, then it's possible to pass it orally via kissing to someone else.

Yes.  If you have ohsv2.  Dont let pretend doctors tell you what you have and where you have it.  If a dr swabs and says it is ohsv2, it prob is.

Thanks guys I appreciate your help very much. So should I disclose even before I kiss someone? I do have ohsv2, I can feel a little cold sore on the side on my cheek inside my mouth now. Thank you again.

If confirmed, I would say yes since hsv2 is 20-25% of population.  But.....  In fairness, I dont disclose my ohsv1 when kissing....

As you said you have a sore in your mouth at the moment in that case I would assume that you would refrain from kissing someone anyway but again this comes down to your own view more than what other people are doing and whether other people would say yes you do or you don't.  In some States there are laws to disclose genital herpes but otherwise there are no laws to tell you that you should disclose so it comes down to being a decent person and having morals especially when it comes to genital herpes

wtf...see now why is it that HSV 2 genitals are told you must disclose every damn time

but yet what ....HSV2 orals don't have to say anything before kissing? 

 

I am asymptomatic whcih means I shed this virus

now how much? no one knows but it is susected the amount of times per years go down

the longer you have had this...pretty sure I have had this for at least a decade perhaps more

so the risk of passing it onto a partner is small 

but it is still a risk that a potential partner deserves to know about

before going to bed with me

No one is saying that oral HSV-2 does not happen, it does. It is estimated that 3% of HSV-2 are oral.

This is why swabs are required to confirm an oral HSV-2 infection.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
