Sex when both partners are HSV-2 positive
In a monogamous relationship between partners who have both previously tested positive for HSV 2, should we be concerned about using protection?  We are both in our 50s and have tested negative for other STDs.  We are both now, and always have been, symptomatic.  The positive blood tests were a surprise to both of us several weeks ago.  There is no issue of "blame" here, or trying to establish who may have brought HSV-2 iinto the relationship (we may have both had it prior to this relationship, as neither of us had ever been tested before).  We have been sexually intimate with each other for over 3 months and have not been using protection during this time.  We are both comfortable going forward sexually with each other and just wonder, seeing as how neither of us has ever been aware of any outbreak in ourselves, if it's OK to have oral and vaginal sex without protection, as long as we remain asymptomatic.  What is one or both of us ever has and outbreak, what about sex then?
