Pregnancy and Non H partner
tlewis12 posted:
I am currently dating a non H partner and we are concerned about having kids. I know I can have kids with H but what is the chance that he will contract it if we have unprotected sex to get pregnant. I have HSV 1 genitally and I am currently on acyclovir 400 x2 day. He doesnt have it and I would like to keep it that way if at all possible lol.

hsv1 genitally doesn't shed very much. it's not likely to be transmitted to a partner. we don't even recommend daily suppressive therapy for it.

your partner was tested to know his herpes status?
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
