Thank you for a speedy reply, you have eased my mind somewhat
Just to clarify for me
1. in your expert opinion, someone who was in a relationship with another person who has OHSV1 would be at more risk of contracting GHSV1 than being in a relationship with someone who has GHSV1 already?
2. i am unsure of my HSV1 status, it is very hard to get a test here, but my Dad has had cold sores since he was little so i am guessing i could already have OHSV1 but i also don’t ever remember getting cold sores myself and have not yet shown any physical HSV symptoms, i do however now experience the itching and discomfort in my genital region, would you just chalk this up to anxiety and maybe being extra aware because this is on my mind a lot?
3. Is genital to genital transmission something should be spending so much time worrying about, we have been together for 6 months and use protection every time? however she is not on any suppressive medication? and i still show no symptoms?
i’m sorry if these questions are silly, its just something i have been anxious about
thank you for your time
