    I have a friend who has "mat herpes"/"wrestling herpes" which is a form of HSV 1 and takes a daily suppressive to keep it under control. I have HSV2 on my genitals but it is so mild and I have only had one "outbreak" (just 1 bump that resembled an ingrown hair) in the year that I've had it that my gyno does not think I need to take any meds.

    He is very hesitant in entering a sexual relationship with me since he does not want to deal with another strain on another part of his body. I was wondering what the chances are of him getting it from me with protection while he is already taking valtrex and has HSV 1.

    Female to Male Transmission for HSV 2. The odds of you getting GHSV 2 is as follows. If the two of you avoid sex when she has an ob then the chances of you getting it is 4%. If she takes suppressive therapy then it drops to 2% and if you use condoms then it go's to 1%. The details are from the Valtrex clinical trials study.
