I’m happy to say we have been married for 17 years and have two wonderful children. I understand that the risk to the baby is more in the third trimester and I will be on suppressive therapy then, but more just wondering about how we should handle intercourse in the next 3-6 months while I am building up antibodies. Can I get HSV1 genitally (if I have HSV1 orally for years) and have unprotected sex with my (girlfriend who I infected with HSV1 genitally by oral sex many years ago) and still not get HSV1 genitally? If my partner has a history of herpes and genital warts and is not currently having an outbreak of either warts or herpes, can I contract either of the STDs from oral sex?.

These worries and anxieties over the past couple days have caused me to use it in a way that lead to mortal sin. For instance, could I end up with HSV2 sores around my mouth if I keep giving him oral sex? It has two drawbacks: oils make it fall apart, and some people are allergic to it. This anterograde transport in axons apparently involves kinesin motors that move virus particles along microtubules toward axon termini (26, 30, 34). It can also be transmitted when there are no symptoms present. And as always, double-check with your physician for additional preventative advice. Sure, we both knew the rough outlines of each other’s sexual histories, but beyond a few wild stories and the times our exes crop up in conversation, we’d never gone into depth about each and every lover and whether we’d used protection with them.

HSV-1 and HSV-2, about two-thirds of infected people have no symptoms. Since we both have HSV2 now, my questions are: 1) Can we still have wild, unprotected sex together, or do we have to be careful?And by wild I mean the regular stuff: oral sex, vaginal intercouse, playing and licking. I realized that she wasn’t so much shallow as she was vengeful. How often do you get them ? You both should have blood tests for HSV-1 and HSV-2. Even when couples both have the virus, they may carry different strains and thus could pass that different strain to their partner. However, I have a huge fear of him rejecting me, thinking I’m gross & gave it to him (pretty common stigma) and/or never wanting to see me again.

He later felt bad about it and apologized and really wants to have a future with me. heat, UV, friction… Let us know if you found this information helpful. I went on Valtrex for 1.5 months to see if it did anything….nope….I had blood test at 9 weeks (before Valtrex), negative, had another blood test at 6 months (after stopping Valtrex for 1 month). It is a natural numbing agent and works better than anything else. 2/3 of the population are immune from getting recurrent outbreaks of HSV-1, but they can still carry it. Is it weird that BOTH my husband and I had a first outbreak of HSV2 at the same time? In both groups because no one is supposed to “cheat” everyone is having unprotected sex.

recommended I wait and see what happens before deciding to take a daily suppressive medicine such as Valtrex or Acyclovir. ! The partner of a person suffering from genital herpes should have the right to make an informed decision. If you both have HSV-2, for example, you both already have the antibodies built up and cannot be re-infected. Some tests for herpes can only be performed during an outbreak because they involve testing the fluid from a blister or sore. Surprisingly, LAT2.9A, which is a combination of dLAT371 and LAT3.3A (i.e., it expresses LAT nucleotides 1 to 76 and 447 to 1499), has a low spontaneous reactivation phenotype indistinguishable from that of LAT null mutants. I eat a lot of veggiesand fiber, and as such I use the restroom a LOT.

Not just once, but too many times to count. If more people know they carry it, might they be more careful and become less likely to infect others? not as funny if it’s HIV though. At this point, since herpes is suspected, you and your husband both should get type specific herpes igg blood tests to see who has what and go from there. There are a lot of misconceptions about HSV and the medical community doesn’t help with that. He’s had feelings for me for several years . I’m 36 weeks pregnant and just got a herpes outbreak!
