Both partners possitive

When both sex partners are possitive for HSV-2, what harm comes from a continued sexual relationship with precaustions? Do we run the risk of having our HSV-2 reinfect each other if we obstain for sex when a blister erupts? Is this virus in the seliva?

actually if you both have hsv2, the only precaution we recommend is just avoiding performing oral on active genital symptoms. you can have sex unprotected if you've covered the rest of the bases for std's. you won't make each others infections 'worse" or anything like that.   you can even have sex during obvious lesions if it wouldn't be painful to do so.

keep asking questions!
