Thanks so much for your response Terri. I’ve been reading the forums and they have a lot of great info.
Does the “vaccination” effectively mean that there doesn’t need to be a worry about transmission of HSV2 to his genitals or oral, even if engaged in unprotected sex?
Also to answer your question: we had been seeing each other since November 2021, and my first outbreak occurred in March 2022. Prior to that I had 2 different partners over the summer and one of them turned out was positive for HSV2.
After my outbreak in March 2022 my boyfriend did 4 blood tests for hsv1/hsv2 which all turned up negative between March-May. He contracted whitlow in mid-May and confirmed it with a swab.
