What are the the chances of a male getting infected from him performing oral on me? I have seen many posts saying that genital to genital contact would be low, but I am so confused about oral.
The risk is also low because HSV 1 genitally is so rarely active. It’s more about the behavior of the virus when it is located genitally than it is about which body part is being exposed in the genital area, mouth or penis. At seven years out, you are likely shedding very infrequently indeed.
Also would you suggest I be taking suppressants daily when I am going to be sexually active? I would prefer not to, but want to know for sure. I have had an allergic reaction to Acyclovir so I would only be able to take Valtrex.
If you are allergic to acyclovir you are also allergic to Valtrex as it is the pro drug of acyclovir. Also, because HSV 1 genitally after so many years is going to be so quiet, it is doubtful that antivirals would improve your viral shedding situation much if at all.
