Hi Terri – Thank you for your thoughtful response.
Yes the partner’s status was confirmed with antibody testing (also after a period of no physical contact).
When we say transmission given at most shedding 4 days/year with the use of condoms and valtrex would be very rare, how should we interpret that? Do we have a number or % that it would be at least better than xyz%?
If I’ve never had any symptoms orally, should I worry about oral shedding?
