In response to message #0
From a positive male to a negative female the transmission stats are:|
Avoid sex during symptoms 8% chance of transmission per year
Using meds or condoms 4% chance of transmission per year
Using both meds AND condoms 2% chance of transmission per year
You are not contagious 24/7 and as you can see the use of meds and condoms significantly cuts down on the rate of transmission over the course of a year. If you do not take meds for suppression, you may want to start.
Just the actual act of having sex may have triggered and once you know you have HSV, it is easy to jump to the conclusion that every little felling or twitch down yonder is HSV when it is not.
