    There is no definitely here. I have hsv2 for over 25 yrs now, and I've been married for 20 years and my husband doesn't have hsv, and yes we have unprotected sex all the time -- I got him fixxed after the kids were born.

Valtrex and condomes can reduce the chance of infecting a partner but not fool proof. READ MORE
