Condoms...

Recommended Posts

People should really stop quoting studies from almost 20 years ago saying condoms are 37, and 50 percent effective in stopping hsv... The latest most up to date research has condoms at 95 percent effective from male to female and 65 percent effective from female to male....for comparison condoms are 80 percent effective for hiv... Stop making people think they can never have sex again.. Condoms are VERY effective for men passing herpes to women

I have sex with a lot of girls using SKYN conoms. Anyway... Condoms protect good! The most german doctors tell me, that herpes only transmits when you have blisters or right after.

 

When I have no blisters for 1weeks+ and use condoms properly the risk is SO minimal! 

 

Just read THIS:

https://hsvblog.org/herpes-simplex-virus-101/

 

So if we look at the findings at the frequent end of the scale we would divide this figure by 120 (12 months x 10 sexual encounters per month). This makes the possibility of spreading the virus during any sexual encounter .0003%, or 1/3,000 (.04 / 120 = 0.00033333333333).

 

 

.0003%! That's the risk worth guys >.<

That's a good site.  Also has good pictures and information on the progression.  

The big issues is we are taught that hsv is going to always be this big massive outbreak and when people get a minor outbreak and then t goes away and maybe doesn't come back for a couple months, it is dismissed.  

Somehow we need a better way to know what to look for and know when ts contagious.

Does the shared information for men only apply if your outbreaks are on your penis? How about in a case like mine where my outbreak (only had one so far) was on my scrotum. Is it correct to assume condom usage will offer little protection for transmission in my case?

Testicles don't shed asymptomaticly very easily due to the thicker skin.  So when you do not have an outbreak the scrotum is safer.  You likely will shed asymptomaticly from the penis much more.  

Another option girl on top takes the testicles mostly out of play.  

You really ha E to watch for prodrome though since it can start to shed just before an outbreak.  But at that time I would expect the penis is also shedding.

      (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.
