Here goes .. I am a female diagnosed with hsv2 around three years ago .. Since then I have had frequent but very mild outbreaks some of which I hardly notice ..
I am in a relationship with a non HSv male
I am normally very careful of not engaging in sexual activity if I am aware of any outbreaks , but on Saturday evening me and my boyfriend were under the influence of alcohol and we engaged in some foreplay .. Him touching me for a few minutes .. And maybe putting his penis next to my vagina .. I also performed oral on him ..
The next morning I woke to find a lesion .. Much more severe than the ones I usually get ( normally just a tingle / red area that lasts a few days )
Now I am terrified u have pased this onto him through seconds of contact .. Or by him touching himself after he touched me down below ..
He is fully aware of my hsv2 and I know ppl are going to say it was his choice but I would really like to know the odds of transmitting the virus and I have been very careful not to do So
So even tho I was having an outbreak at the time the risk is low ? I have been frantically researching and the answers are sort of confusing some ppl say its a very high chance he will have been infected and the lesions are very contagious even with no penetration , My lesions are not painful and I'm taking it worse case scenario here that there was a lesion present at the time of the foreplay ..
