My girlfriend keeps saying she wants to do oral on me and "swallow". I know for vaginal sex definitely we'd have to use a condom, but not sure for oral. I know HSV2 prefers the genital area. Would it be better for her to just use her hands to avoid the extended oral contact and then just "finish" in her mouth? The "swallowing" thing apparently is important to her because she's persistent with it. So is it in semen? Having the green light to just "do it" sounds to good to be true. So I'd like to know how to do this safely. Thank you. (I was diagnosed more than 10 years ago and I'm asymptomatic)
I had unprotected sex November 16th 2019. I tested positive for HSV2 on December 10th >5 (igg) , retested December 14 and now stated >13.80 (igg quest).
Today is December 16th and I have yet to have any symptoms or lesions anywhere. HOWEVER, a Week later after exposure I had a sore throat to where drinking and swallowing was very painful for about a week.
I know she Has HSV2 because she told me (deceivingly too late) and I understand HSV2 is rare in the throat but could this be my case? I hope so. No initial OB on my genitals in 30 days since exposure with no medications.
p.s I still take no medication.

Hi, I have been suffering from a sort of burning tip of my tongue and a little uncomfortable sensation in my mouth. Sometimes, depending on what i have eaten or drunk i get a blackish/deep red spot on the side of my tongue and lots of little dots near the tip of my tongue. These do not ooze, scab or ache but just appear.
I also have white dots on my lip (top) which look like Fordyce and my bottom lip also seems to be constantly chapped and peeling in places.
My nose had also become itchy and greasy and sometimes red patches appear on my face, near my eyebrows.
Has anyone had anything like this happen to them, is it and allergy or something more sinister, I have seen several sexual health consultants and GPs and they cant see anything wrong, but to me it certainly is.
I am extremely stressed so perhaps this is making it worse.
I hope someone can help me.
June 3rd I may of been exposed to Herpes.
Performed oral and vaginal sex with a one night stand. A few days later, "felt off" and got tested on the 7th (negative for all stds, but not tested for herpes)
Took a round of Doxycycline the following week around the 14th for a few days as I was feeling extremely Hot and urinating frequently. It seemed to help for an instant, however still feeling off.
Tested again n the 28th - Negative for all stds including HSV igg however positive for HSV igm with an index of 1.14 (Positive being anything greater than 1.1) *approximately 26 days after suspected exposure
Dr. prescribed Valacyclovir 2x day. Started taking medication July 2nd.
Pain and discomfort in the penis continuing. With sensations in the pelvic area and kidneys.
Tested again on July 20th - Negative for all stds and HSV igg/igm.
Tested again August 6th - Negative for all stds and HSV igg/igm.
I have been taking valacyclovir since July 2nd 2x daily.
I have felt just not right since the possible exposure date (or shortly after).
My penis has gone through feelings of tingling sensations, heat, pain but not to touch, pain in my pelvis. Things seemed to of started with a burning sensation in the inner thigh.
I feel as I am having shooting sensation in my legs and occasionally have an itchy/tingle around where my pubic hair is from time to time. Hell, today and maybe yesterday I've noticed tingling in my scalp.
I tried again today to not take the valacyclovir and lasted until about 11:30 am after waking up around 8 am. My lips and the skin around my face starts to burn and the tingling around the pubic hair area of my genitals increase in its sensations. It's almost as a sleeping demon is waking up when I don't take the meds. When I take it, it takes about a day or so for things to get back in control.
My penis/genitals have also not smelled the same since. It seems my scent has changed.
Today is day 68 - is this how it's going to be forever?
I am worried I have this all over my face as the burning is in the corners of my mouth and down my chin, as well as my nose.
I have not shown any sores however I do feel my penis and scrotum has felt hot and sometimes red, typically on the head of the penis at the urethra. Multiple dr's say it looks normal to them.
I am so lost and feel like I am falling apart physically, mentally and emotionally. I guess I just wait until week 12 (in a few more weeks) to maybe test positive... but then what?
Hi I’m new to this website, it’s been a year since I found out I have HSV 2. My question is, how likely can genital herpes be spread during sex if the condom tore the skin of the vagina area and it was bleeding a tiny bit? I was intimite with a man recently and we used a condom, it ended up pulling and tearing a small cut on my vagina, towards the end he took the condom off and I didn’t know until afterwards... I am on a suppressive treatment. I take Valtrex once a day but I forget to take it sometimes. what are the chances of him getting it?
