Thank you for the quick response.
No, he does not take currently take daily antiviral therapy, but it would be something that we would like to look into if we decide to go further. All in all, if he did take daily antiviral medication and condoms were used, it seems like the risk of transmission would be quite low? Also, is the virus spread only through viral shedding and liquid from the blisters or can it also be transmitted via bodily fluids like blood and sperm?
Finally, I really care for this person and do not want to end things with them solely based on an hsv 2 diagnosis. This virus does not define him and in no way takes away from all of the amazing qualities that he has. However, I do find myself sometimes struggling to fully commit to the relationship from fear of contracting the virus myself. Do you have any words of wisdom or advice for me in that regard?
thank you kindly.
