A question regarding my brother

Recommended Posts

butterfly1969

My brother has an interest in a lady friend. She told him that she had genital herpes. He called me and wanted to get my opinion about the situatin. She told him that she was on medication and now she is not and she hasn't had an outbreak in over ten yrs. He and I were both on the same wavelength by saying, it took a lot her for her to be honest about it, I respect her for that. Anyways, he has some questions that I couldn't really answer for him. We both agreed that he should wear a condom to reduce the risk of transmission. The thing is he loves to perform orally and hes not sure how to go about this. What happens if the genital herpes is transmitted to your mouth? would you be infected with genital herpes and have outbreaks in the genital area, even if it was transmitted by mouth? Im not sure how it works, Also he asked what his risk would be if she performed orally on him. Any respnses will be greatly appreciated, he is really close to this woman and would like to take it to the next level.

herpes is spread by skin to skin contact.

if someone has a coldsore (herpes oral infection) and performs oral sex on another uninfected person they can transmit from oral to genital.

if someone has a genital infection and has sex with an uninfected person they can transmit genital to genital.

if someone has a genital infection and an uninfected person performs oral sex on them they can transmit genital to oral.

I decided to google dental dams today to see exactly what they are and how they are used. I found that they are a form of contraception to use when having oral sex. I thought I had hit the jackpot because the guy that I am seeing is very oral and wishes he could do me. This actually lowers the risk of spreading herpes and other STD's to your partner. It's very informative. You guys should check it out.

ouch

yeah, dental dams are great!!! The lesbian/bisexual women community has been using them for YEARS as a method of safe sex. It can be quite interesting to say the least! ;-)

When I think of dental dams I get the image of a big rubber frisbee in your mouth :lol: ...I think I'll google it and see what they really look like....just incase I ever get into a relationship again I'll have some accurate info on the subject.

HAHAHAHA! you guys are all killing me today...I envisioned running around with a FRISBEE in my mouth...like some sex crazed rabid dog! !!!! ;-)

You are NOT far off though Shayna, they ARE somewhat frisbee-ish. Weird at first, but if you work your mojo right, they can actually be fun. My fella is a little weirded out by them, but .... something new to try out! ;-)

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.
