Thank you so much! I asked this question to a couple providers and honestly they couldn’t give me an answer.
Do you know how much the antivirals can slow the antibody rate? For example, if data shows that after 2 years, shedding can be as low as 2% with ghsv1, would continuously taking antivirals for those two years put your shedding rate at 4%? 6%? Etc. Or would taking antivirals continuously prevent me from ever getting down to the 2% shedding rate?
Finally, and I know this is a heavily debated topic, but do you feel that disclosing to future partners that I have the cold sore virus is sufficient? Since transmission rates become so low, even lower than oral hsv1 transmission after a few years, disclosing for ghsv1 seems like it poses far more of a mental detriment for the diagnosed person than it poses a risk to a future partner.
Thank you for your information! reading your posts have definitely made me feel like I can get a confident grasp on this situation.
