Infecting My BF
An_252953 posted:
I contracted HSV1 "down under" from my bf, who had it, orally. Can he contract it in his genitals now when we have sex, or is he clear since he already has the mouth kind?

Your bf should not get HSV 1 genitally as he has the HSV 1 anti bodies in his system already. I guess he might but his chances are very rare that he would get it genitally as he has these same anti bodies in his system. I would not worry about it and just go on with your sex life the same as always.

The good thing for you is that on average you could get one more ob in the first year that you got HSV 1 genitally and then on average you could get an ob every other year. Some people never get a another ob.

The only thing you need to know is that if you break up with this guy then you should tell any new partner that you have HSv 1 genitally. Any new partner should get tested for all STI'S as well as you should to so that both of you know what each other has. Getting tested before you move on to a new partner is really a good idea so that both of you know what each other has.

God Bless the two of you.
