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.

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
