I have a new partner now. I wanted everyones opinon what is the best type of condoms to use. I know I like astroglide, but I don't know what type of condoms to use.

Be sure to use latex condoms as the other types don't provide as much protection.

I can tell you to avoid the ultra sensitive variety, that's the kind I used with the partner I got H from.

I've read that you're safer using one that already has spermicide.

spermicide

Can you use spermicide and astroglide at the same time?

I have heard NOT to use spermicide as it inflames/irritates genital tissue making one more susceptible to STIs.

spermicide

To use or to use spermicide. That is the questions. Is regular condoms enough protections? Some condoms make me itch. Astroglide does just fine for me, although I know it doesn't not offer any protection. It make everything feel better.

Condoms do not necessarily provide protection against herpes because it is a skin to skin disease. Someone can have a bump, lesion, etc on their pubic area so you know a condom will not help there. I have always used a condom and still contracted hsv.

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
