I am a woman with herpes dating a man who does not. Is he at risk having/performing Oral sex on me? Options?
I see your an adult living with genital HSV-2. HSV-2 is genital herpes 5-10% of the time and oral herpes 5-10% of the time. If a person without oral herpes performs oral sex on a partner with genital HSV-2 the genital HSV-2 virus transfer to the person performing oral sex orally. HSV-2 isn't that common orally. Many people who carry the herpes antibodies don't have an outbreak or experience mild signs or symptoms of the virus. The chance of passing herpes to a partner by oral sex may vary depending on the situation.
Avoiding sex during a herpes outbreak, if a tingling, burning or itching feeling occur greatly lowers the chance of passing herpes to a partner. Taking medicine (if needed) such as Valtrex could reduce the chance of passing herpes to a partner and the chance of getting a herpes outbreak. Dental dam could be used to reduce the chance of passing herpes to a partner by oral sex.
