HIV & HSV-2 direct relationships

Recommended Posts


Hey guys,

I have recently been reading lots on the internet how people with herpes have a high great chance of getting HIV because they carry HSV-2 but the articles I read are a little confusing.  Could anyone elaborate why we have a much higher percentage of transmitting HIV?  Is it because of exposure of when we have an OB or is there more to it than just that?  One article I was reading said that people with HIV and herpes have a stronger viral load than someone who just has just HIV.  But another study said that it was 6x greater chance of someone who has herpes to transmit HIV.  Just wondering what you guys all think...  


Thanks again
