I am a 28 year old woman who has HSV-2 and also take Valtrex daily. My partner does not have HSV-1 or HSV-2. I would like to know the following:

1. What are the chances of me transmitting the disease to him through though sex?

2. What are the chances of me transmitting the disease to him if I perform oral sex on him?

3. What are the chances of me transmitting the disease to him if he performs oral sex on me?

Please also include a resource.

1. It's possible, even if you are on Valtrex. This medication suppresses but does not cure one of this virus.

2. If your HSV-2 is contained to your genital region, you will not pass it on to him by performing oral sex on him.

3. Same as number 1.
