Thank you. I appreciate the work you do.
I am fairly confident the right thing to do is to tell my partner, now, as objectively as I can. And blot. He’s been out of town since I got my results, so I’ve had some time to think and research. I want to be fair to him.
He will likely ask me the odds of transference from GHSV2 to oral given our history. I have read its odds are not high, but would like to confirm with you. I haven’t had a single breakout, so I am just guessing I have it genitally if I do have it. You may not have a number but how likely would you say that transference is?
My last question is re valtrex. My regular doc won’t prescribe it unless a person has 4+ breakouts a year (she acts like it’s no big deal, says antibodies mean exposure not infection, and suggests I don’t disclose). She’s giving me a get out of jail free card, but I don’t think that’s fair based on my research. Anyhow, my question is, to be the most responsible I can be for others, apart from abstinence or condoms, should I take a daily suppressive if I am sexually active?
