Hsv2 dating

28 Jan

Especially people infected saying And clearly carry all this weight of bitterness towards the person who infected them. Dating in this generation is already tough as it is and having to be honest about “that” cause it’s the right thing to do was detrimental to me. Like using protection or not even sleeping with the person because it was a one-time thing. It’s crazy cause Herpes was really my worst fear for years. For some strange reason STD clinics and even most primary doctors don’t test for it because it’s not apart of the full STD panel. I was one of the people that always asked for it believe it or not.

Unfortunately your risk of infecting a partner doesn't really go down much after the first year or so of being infected.

Studies have shown that shedding remains pretty constant over time.

your partner also needs tested to know her own status.

In your age group about 80% of folks have hsv1 and 30% have hsv2. odds are she's never had any herpes testing done to know her own status.assuming you have hsv2 genitally, if you two did nothing but avoid sex anytime you have anything going on genitally, she is 90-92% likely NOT to contract hsv2 from you each year.

The risk of transmission without condoms goes up to 4-5% risk/year to a female.definitely get tested to see what your status is for hsv1 and hsv2.
