help! had sex when outbreak was present
townsend4408 posted:

I have HSV2 and did not realize I had a sore present when I had sex. I have been taking acyclovir and we do not use condoms. I did speak with Dr. Warren and asked if it was invetible that I have passed this on to my partner. Because we have been together a while and I'm on suppression medication, she did give me hope. I do wonder though - is there a percentage number regarding the rate of transmission if you have sex during an outbreak? I think I probably asked her this, but I was very upset and don't know if I asked.

I also wonder: If he is going to get it, would it be helpful to go ahead and give him medication to make the outbreak less severe? Is there any harm in taking the medication if you do not have herpes? I would give him my medication. (I realize this isn't 100% legal, but I have greater concerns.) We had sex Wednesday night. The waiting is killing us both and, unfortunately, I think this is the end of our relationship. I am just wanting to do whatever I can to make it better for him, so I'm grasping at straws. Give him my medication to take as if he will have an outbreak in the hopes of making it less severe or wait to see if he gets one?
