Transmission

A question about spreading hsv2

 

1.  If you are asymptomatic do you shed; and

 

2.  If taking antivirals, and using condoms what is the chance of spreading it to a man.

Everyone sheds, but it is not known exactly how much for an individual, nor does it matter in a way, as shedding does not equal transmission probability. Most shedding involves way too little of the virus to infect anything.

The population average using antivirals and condoms is about 2% a year as mentioned. This includes some 'average' usage of antivirals and condoms!

Yes, if you are asymptomatic, it means you only shed. Spreading the herpes infection mostly occurs through shedding, because people who are asymptomatic typically don't know that they have herpes and therefore take no precautions. That said, I haven't seen any stats that specify the chances of spreading the virus if you are shedding at a specific time and have skin to skin contact with someone at that time. I would think that that would be difficult to determine.

My understanding is that if you don't have an outbreak you shed less and also during the first year you shared more and given that you have had it for longer than a year and don't have symptoms if you use condoms and take medication my understanding is that it is 1%.  If this new guy is ok with it just take the precautions as best as you can and he is taking that risk remember that

Do people who have zero to very few occurences a year, also have less asymptomatic shedding than those who who do?   Thanx.

      It's not clear.  The experiments in which they inactivated 2-4% latent HSV in mice, was definitely in living mice. The research paper is very clear about that.  It appears that in May 2018, they also reported nearly 20-30% inactivation of latent HSV in living mice. It's not clear what the 90% is referring to, whether in living mice or some artificial latency model using mice sells in vitro.  I really hope that it was in living mice.  That would make sense, since the earlier experiments were in living mice.  But in any case, as you mentioned, this research is progressing very well. Let's continue to try to raise money for it.
