Hi, I just started dating someone with herpes. She has had it since she was 19 and is now 53. She has been married twice and says her exes never got it and never used condoms. She takes daily medication and I would use condoms. I know there are risks, but my question is can they be quantified? I’ve seen that there is a 4% chance of getting it from an infected woman without using condoms and not on medication. I would just feel better knowing that instead of knowing there’s a risk, just knowing how much of a risk there is. Thanks!
If you use condoms and she takes daily antiviral medicine the risk is down to about 1%
