Anyone had sex while having an outbreak of partner has the same virus?

Recommended Posts


My boyfriend and I both have HSV-1. He has cold sores and I have it genitally. I am currently going through a recurrent outbreak that has lasted 4 weeks. We desperately want to have sex again. I’m to the point of where I’m about to just do it because we both have the same virus type. My concern is causing the prolonging of my healing process. Has anyone had sex while on an outbreak?

Yes...I have had sex while having an outbreak. GHSV2 here. Hubby has the same. It was on my upper thigh/lower buttcheek area. I just covered it with a bandaid...which I usually wear over my outbreaks anyways.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
