Hi there i recently got diagnosed with herpes type 1 down below and i have questions. How can i have sex with this i know you say condoms but can i still be infected with hiv? And can i perform any oral sex on my partner? Help me bc im freaking out
georgiagail responded:
What, exactly, are you asking.

If you use a condom and it is used accurately and does not break or tear, you are protected against HIV whether you have herpes or not.

If you have herpes on your genitals, performing oral sex on your partner will not transmit the virus to them; however, if they perform unprotected oral sex on you, there is a risk to them.

Ok so if my partner uses a condom he cant be infected by it? Bit if i give him oral since i dont have the herpea orally can i transfer it?
