Is it possible to be on suprisive therapy 1g daily?
How often do you shed orally?
It depends upon whether you are having outbreaks and how often. People who have six or more outbreaks a year shed virus on about 1 out of every 4 days – that’s all we know about shedding frequently for oral HSV 1.
I want to makeout/kiss or perform oral, how safe is it to do so with no sores?
We just don’t know that.
In August I received an index of greater than 5 and at 6 months index 45. My greater than 5 index would have been 5 weeks after infection,(end of june) would that mean I got infected 5 weeks before or was this long standing?
There is no way to know that but we do know you didn’t get it in the middle of July, for example.
Also my 45 index was while I was on Valtrax for 3 months. (500 MG daily) does being in suppressive therapy make my antibodies higher?
It does not – no influence on antibodies with an index value that high
I’m at 9 months of abstaining and 6 months of suppressive therapy, is it okay for me to have sex and kiss now?
I would say the risk of you having sex and kissing and transmitting HSV 1 is low but I can’t tell you a specific number.
I would say you really have no idea if your infection is oral or genital at this point. At least from what you told me, I am unconvinced. And yes, swabs can be taken from an area that has no sore but presents with symptoms of other kinds.
