Q: Can you get herpes by taking a bath with someone or using their towel?
Took a bath with someone and we dried off sharing towels found out later that person had herpes.
No you can't. It takes skin to skin contact. The virus lives in bodily fluids not in towels or bath water.
Potentially, if there was any touching while you were together, after you dried off.
I have herpes and my boyfriend knows about it and I take my medication regularly but he wants a baby so we have been trying to get pregnant and he has not yet contracted herpes that's very weird because everyone says he could catch but for 3 months we've haven't had protected sex and still clean of all diseases
