HSV-2 Positive Couple Questions
We are a monogomus couple, both positive for HSV-2 (genital), and on suppressive daily therapy and want to know: 1) is their any risk in having normal intercourse w/o a condom since we are both infected ? 2) Is their risk in me giving my boyfriend oral sex (as in getting HSV-2 orally as well) ? 3) Is their risk in my boyfriend giving me oral sex (as in him getting oral HSV-2) ? Since we are both infected what reasonable precautions or risks are there for us ?

From what I've read you can't get infected again. Since you're both infected there isn't any need for the condom.
