Q: is it safe to have oral sex between 2 partners who's having HSV2 when there is no breakouts?

Hi everyone,


I 24yrs old and i have just found out that iv been infected by HSV2.Until i saw the blisters i didnt even feel anything before and had no clue.I have been with my biyfreind for more that a year & he didn't have any simtoms at all too.Could this be due to my past relationships?I have been taken by surprise how I have got this & was not that educated about this virus before until I read ur site.I am soooo THANKFULL TO U that i was able to find out alot of information where as my doctor was not able to even educate me as much.Could it be that I had this all this time & its coming out now?


It has been like 1 month that i have got this and my blisters completely heald and i feel perfect even though I'm mentally soo disturbd.My doctor told me that its fine after the blisters go away that i can perform sex again.1 week ago without knwing what this could be I had intercouse & now my boyfreind got sytoms of HSV2.On his there's no big blisters, its jst pink patches and hes feeling itchy.I made him take zovirex right away and using batricon oilment.hes healing very fast.Even thought he doesnt have big sores& blisters does it mean that he doesnt have HSV2 yet?


Also my biggest concern is that if he has the same & since we both infected, can we have oral sex after the blisters completely heald & when theres no breakouts?


Please reply me soon as im from a country that this virus is not spread that much & the doctors are not even able to fully educate us on this.I cant speak out to anybody as it could get us in trouble as we are foreigners living in middle east.


I soo regret that i couldnt read ur site before, if so things could have been different.


Thanking u so much & looking forward to hear from u soon.
