I am recently single & my last partner had HSV1 as well so this convo was pretty self explanatory. I need some more Information on future transmission if my new partner doesn’t have It.I have GHSV1 (female) since September 2021 diagnosed via swab. Not sure when I actually acquired it but I believe it was from a partner at that time because I have never ever had a single symptom and he had OHSV and preformed oral sex one & 4 days later I started getting symptoms.Since my initial diagnosis and OB in Sept 2021, I have only had 1 OB about 6 months ago that was 1 tiny dot and to be honest it was so difficult to see I don’t even know if it was an actual OB. I had a ton of other symptoms ie flu like symptoms, swollen glands, burning down there which made me believe it was an OB. My prodrome symptoms seem to worsen during or right after my period. I get this burning sensation in my groin, super itchy & a tingle right in the same spot as my initial OB. When I get these symptoms I am literally checking myself evert single day. All I have ever seen was a tiny tear ( not sexually active when I am seeing these tears so I have no idea how I am getting them. I asked about this on a reddit group & a lot of women commented this was the way their OB presented. Have you seen this? is this common? can it in fact be the way my OB is presenting even tho my first one was a little circle not a linear tear.
Here are some questions I have if my new partner doesn’t have HSV1 and I am not having any symptoms or visible OB.
1. If he gives me oral sex what are the chances he acquires it orally?
2. If he fingers me & put his fingers in his mouth or on his penis can he get it?
3. Dry humping without undergarments?
4. How risky is unprotected sex at this point for the amount of time I have had it? And in the future for female to male?
5. Should I be taking any Anti-virals before my period to lessen these prodrome symptoms
