What sweetness said is actually a little bit wrong. If you have oral herpes, you have about a 4% chance of passing HSV to your bf by giving him oral sex if you're not having symptoms. If you have genital herpes ONLY, you have 0 chance of giving him HSV through oral sex. The virus does NOT live in your mouth, only in your genitals. If there's a chance you may have both, you'd again have a 4% chance of passing it without sores present.

Hope that helps!

Hello to you all

I got the "gift" last year for Christmas. After spending 20 in an emotionless marriage, I went to the extreme end when I found my freedom. I had a lot of fun dating, and still do, but in the process, I got more than just a good time. It's been a year now, I've dated both herpetics and non-herpetics alike, I've even slept with both. I'm not just interested in sleeping around, I want a long-term relationship, but it's just that after 12 years of no intimacy in my marriage, I have a hard time saying no to someone I like. I have yet to find "Mr. Right" yet, though.

I will say that although some really great relationships have slipped through my fingers, it has turned out that those guys would not have been right for other reasons. Maybe it's all part of the plan. I am not as upset about it as I was before. There are great people out there on the herpes dating sites, which just saves you the grief of having to reveal and being rejected. There were some who did not care about it, but it's all a matter of whether or not you are up to the possible rejection every time. One thing about the herpes sites: if you have a set of criteria you would use when choosing a date, e.g, size 8 or smaller, long hair, likes to snowboard, etc, remember that there may not be someone who exists with all those criteria AND herpes. Don't be afraid to venture out to people who are not exactly what you THOUGHT you were looking for. You may be pleasantly surprised.

As far as knowledge about the thing, I have read a lot, but I still have one question: person 1 can give person 2 HSV1 if person 1 has a cold sore and person 1 performs oral sex on person 2. However, if person 1 has HSV2 and person 2 performs oral sex on person 1, does person 2 get HSV2 in the mouth?

Good luck to all!

I assume you mean HSV1 as oral and HSV2 as genital. The answer would be yes - it can be passed genital-to-genital, oral-to-genital, or genital-to-oral.

Correct. HSV1 PREFERS the oral area and HSV2 PREFERS the genital area, but they are not found exclusively there.

      Yeah and the stigma hit me pretty hard since I'm originally from Asia and we don't have sex ed or STD education so the regret and self-hating are as bad as stigma. Hoping is the only way to get me out of suicidal thoughts. I know that a lot has been done and I'm glad. I just hope they continue with the hsv research instead of abandoning it cuz it's not life-threatening and I also hope that the big pharma conspiracy isn't real.

      @Dvm, he says this to almost everyone.  Best ignore his bad advice

      Thx so much. However HSV can affect the trigeminal nerve/from post herpetic neuralgia and can actually cause all these symptoms. Some people, once affected can have short term symptoms,  while others have sporadic flare ups and some are permanently affected. Gabapentin for trigeminal neuralgia, prescribed by my neurologist, did help me for some time,  but I'm glad to be off it.  Hope my post helps someone w similar issues who havent gotten help from primary care Dr.

      @Dvm you can be assured that HSV is not the cause of these issues. As you have found, it’s likely a spinal issue and it sounds like you have found some help. Stick with that.
