A follow up question for you, and sorry if this is a stupid question. HSV1 is transmitted orally, from oral to genital and that’s how someone gets GHSV1. My question is can it spread from her genitals to my genitals?
That is possible, yes, but rarely happens.
Secondly, if using condoms and antivirals, what would be the percentage of contracting HSV1 from her after those first 3 months of shedding is finished?
We don’t have that data, but I would say less than 4% per year, surely
since the outbreak was in her genitals, can she spread HSV1 with her mouth? (i.e. is it safe to still kiss her and for her to give me oral?)
If her infection is only genital, then it is safe to kiss and for her to give you oral sex.
Remember that the IgG test for HSV 1 misses 30% of HSV 1 infections compared to the western blot
2. If I were to give her oral and contract HSV1 from her genitals to my mouth, I would then be HSV1 positive with outbreaks only in my oral region. If this were to happen, would I then be “inoculated” from getting HSV1 in my genitals if we were to continue to have intercourse?
Yes, essentially, after your oral infection was well established orally (4 months in)
3. Would additional skin protection like latex underwear offer more protection from transmission if used with a condom?
