I'm a male, and was diagnosed earlier this year, after a one night stand I will never stop regretting.
Now I'm worried about not passing this virus on to any healthy women, but I am single and have a few lady friends who I know would not hesitate in saying yes, should I propose having sex. Problem is, none of them know about my Herpes and they all are healthy women. So, even if I told a woman about my condition, and she still was willing to have sex with me. What steps can be taken? I mean, besides the obvious use of condoms, and even though I haven't had any outbrakes in about 7 months, and eat healthy to maintain my immune system strong, what precautions should be taken to avoid passing the virus on to a healthy woman, crazy enough to still want sex with me even after I told them about my situation. How to have sex with her and NOT passing on the virus? Sorry if my question seems dumb, I just hope there is some way to keep healthy sex partners from getting the virus.
I had my HPV surgically removed 20 years ago and have not had a reappearance of warts. I have had a partner for the last 10 years that has never gotten HPV from me. Can I still transmit this virus to a new partner or should I consider myself safe?
I have HSV2 and have been with the same partner for 10 years. Except for the first three years I rarely get an outbreak and do not take meds for it. Recently I started dating again and have questions about transmission to a new partner. We have kissed, and I have given him oral. A few weeks after, he got cold and flu symptoms and I got 2 very painful genital outbreaks that were comparable to when I was first diagnosed with HSV2. I was not particularly stressed at the time of the outbreaks. We discussed that I have HSV2. My previous partner has never had an outbreak or shown any symptoms and I gave him oral frequently. Is it possible then for me to spread my herpes to a new partner simply by kissing them on the mouth or giving them oral? Thanks in advance....
