Can I give someone HSV2 through kissing?

12 posts in this topic

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

      Boil is my guess too, but if you have concerns then please attend your doctor. If you have been having sex with partner(s) whose STD status you do not know then please consider an STD panel that includes at least HIV, Hep A/B/C, gon, syph, chlam, trich, HSV 1/2.

      I remember trying to look into this some time ago but best I could come up with was that the chance was say in the range of 1-10% for the sexual episode. Obviously the nature of the outbreak, its positioning etc. all plays a role. You suggest this is HSV-2 with a diagnosis over 12 years ago? Have you checked the type with a blood test? May be a chance it is HSV-1 that your husband may already have for example. Agree that antivirals have no preventative properties, only benefit is taking the edge of the impact of an initial infection if this occurs (which as mentioned is still the realms of quite unlikely). Having HSV-1 does not provide any protection from HSV-2 so the figures show. Interestingly the other way around there is almost complete immunity, that is, people with an established HSV-2 infection are much less likely to be infected with HSV-1.

      You are more at risk when there is an outbreak so it is possible but as the other person said he may already have it anyway because if you have been in a relationship with him and having sex over a frequent period it is more likely that he would have it according to the experts.  And if he takes an antiviral straight away it does not stop him from getting it I'm not sure what the above person was referring to there
    • Lisajd
      If a person tells you that their partner has been tested and is negative then you can take that as a yes it can help. No symptoms does not mean not infected. Meds and condims reduce to 1%.

      Yes!!!  If antivirals stopped us from being contagious we would all be celebrating naked in Times Square.

      It is still possible to pass the virus while on antivirals.
