Pregnancy without gHSV1 transmission to female

Recommended Posts



About 5 months ago I was diagnosed with gHSV1. My wife does not have it genitally, but apparently has an oral case of it. She hasn't had a period in many years, and then last month it showed up! It's the first period she has had since we have been married (6 years).

We are now using condoms consistently, even during foreplay to prevent any risk. The "infection" seems to be limited in surface area and covered well by condoms. I've been outbreak free since the initial infection aside from mild neuralgia.

I have found a few products (POPDildo and The Semenette) which are designed for mixed status couples and lesbians who are trying to get pregnant. The device allows you to load sperm in a tube and ejaculate it out from a very nice dildo.

This is my plan:

  • Keep sperm count high - Male Vitality Supplements / Zinc, etc.
  • Calculate the optimal fertility date for the following month
  • Collect or use fresh sperm in device to impregnate wife.

I wanted to run this by the forum and see if anyone had any theoretical concerns with transmission from sperm. I also wanted to share this plan because upon searching the forums the best I have seen was "hole in a condom", which has obvious flaws. Thanks for your feedback!

There really is no need to such lengths. Your wife already has the best prevention measure possible, an established oral infection. This means transmission odds are already negligible. 

Also note that it is extremely rare for there to be HSV in semen and it is probably not feasible to infect someone this way even if trace amounts were present (for a non positive partner).

I admire the use of condoms, but in the context of falling pregnant, talk to your doctors more. I’m sure they will explore the option of normal unprotected sex being low risk of issues to a potential pregnancy and is probably the best chance of your wife falling pregnant thus outweighing the risk.

Hi Everyone.

I am just a newbee here and still not sure about my herpes status. Even i have the same question in my mind.

Please consult doctors first , may be IVF can be an option too.

The best possible way that i can think of is

1. Hsv+ male will remain on valtex for suppression almost a month till the ovulation period of hsv negetive female.

2. Predict the ovulation period of hsv negetive female and keep in testing through ovulation kits

3. The Male ejaculate in side a syringe ( no needle though). Pump the semen deep inside female carefully and wait for nature to take its course.

May sound crazy.  This will keep the female safe from hsv . She dontneed antiviral or C-section and can breast feed the newborn as well.

Hey @Monty321 I’m sorry but that is a little crazy. Do you think your wife would even agree to that?

Mate, reason and calm, you’re wound up tighter than a prozzies g-string right now! You still have to have further testing, which will in alll likelihood reveal negative.

      One more point to add.  I noticed it at 47:46 minute mark: "Single cell analysis suggests that combinations of AAV serotypes effectively transducing all neuronal subsets may allow near complete elimination of latent HSV genomes".  (emphasis mine).

      Yeah, I understand what you mean.  Still, if it comes to market, it's possible that some people will want to use it as a suppressive, i.e. every day for years.  So potential toxicities might end up building up.  so I think they have to be cautious about that.   A lot of people say they wouldn't mind side effects etc. but if you end up blowing up your kidneys with some herpes meds, then it won't be much fun. Still, they did lift the suspension in the immune compromised, and even fast tracked the testing, so it could be approved after this phase 2 (potentially).  And they may go back to testing in healthy people as well.   Meanwhile, Maruho will be testing amenalief in healthy people in the US in the not to distant future. The near future looks bright for improved herpes meds.  These drugs might end up being a bridge while we wait for the FHC cure/functional cure.  I'm hopeful.

      for most people the virus gets easier over time, so if your just diagnosed and start in with all the natural stuff, of course you think it's working, but it's more than likely just your natural experience with the virus...not to be a debbie downer, just saying.

      Do you have periods of say a few months where it's ok and then periods where it's off the charts and uncontrollable no matter what you do? Thats how mine is. It's always with me but there are periods where it's better than others....some months are ok, some are just relentless herpes....no rhyme or reason...it's never great no matter what.

      Denavir never did a good job blocking much for me and my derm said this is the norm. my next step is to do a few other blood checks to make sure I’m not destroying my insides and also add in tens which has been shown to reduce shingles outbreaks to hopefully deactivate as much of the virus as possible. Targeting lower back and thighs for this  disclaimer is that I’ve had no positive tests from wb igg culture or dna pcr so going off of visual diagnosis with md and fact I never responded to fungal and bacterial treatments over the course of a year .
