Both Partners Have Herpes Type 1

Or that my partner has carried it for a long time and never had an outbreak, but passed it to me and after 3 years it finally shows up. If you both have Herpes type 1, whether contracted orally or genitally, you are protected against Herpes 1 body infections; that is not to mean you do not shed nor is to mean that you should not use protection during sexual activity, as more of the virus is not good. If me and my partner have HSV-2 can we give each other oral sex? The herpes simplex viruses, usually referred to as HSV-1 (or oral) and HSV-2 (or genital) , are two distinct viruses; the main difference between the two types of herpes being where they tend to make their home in the body. The herpes simplex viruses, usually referred to as HSV-1 (or oral) and HSV-2 (or genital) , are two distinct viruses; the main difference between the two types of herpes being where they tend to make their home in the body.

My question is: if we both already have herpes 1 & 2 can we a) re-infect each other or b) cause either of us to have more outbreaks? Also, can we spread the virus to other locations on our own bodies? What if my partner has it genitally but not orally? Okay so I just found out 2 months ago I have Herpes Simplex Type 1, but on my genital area, my boyfriend transmitted to me by oral sex, because he has herpes simplex type 1 but on his mouth not genital, I went to the doctor got treated thank God, i havent got another break out after the first one, hopefully i wont ever get it again, well me and my boyfriend have unprotected sex all the time and he gives me oral all the time, is it possible he could get it on his genital? even tho we both have the same virus, and as i was told by my doctor it really doesnt matter if i have unprotected sex sinc we both have the same virus herpes simplex type 1, I just dont want to give it to him on his genital, is it possible that he could get it? This is still possible as long as other precautions are taken and both parties are informed and aware of the risks. HSV-1 is usually associated with oral herpes, but it can also spread to the genitals through oral sex. If you and your partner have the same type of herpes, you have more freedom than a couple not trying to infect one partner.

We Both Have Herpes 1 & 2

Myth: Herpes isn’t that common and I am unlikely to get it. 50 of people getting herpes get it from partners who are unaware they have it. Fortunately, if you both have the same type of HSV, you likely don’t need to worry about passing it to each other, or to different areas of the body.

I have HSV-1, but it’s genital rather than oral. My partner has only had cold sores before so we assume it’s also HSV-1. Is it safe to have unprotected sex and kiss because we both have the same type? Or would I still infect his genitals and he infect my mouth, even though the virus is already in each of our systems? HSV-1. Is it safe to have unprotected sex and kiss because we both have the same type? There are two types of herpes simplex virus: herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2). Both types are sometimes passed to other areas of the body through skin-to-skin contact. If you have one type of HSV, then it is not possible to get that same type again from a new partner. Traditionally, genital herpes has been caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). Although HSV-1 infections were seen in both males and females, they were more common in females. But what about other forms of prevention? Should those who know they have an oral HSV-1 infection disclose this to their partners, just as those with genital infection are urged to do? Is promoting the use of condoms and dentals dams for oral sex practical? How can public awareness be raised? We’d like to hear your thoughts. While both herpes 1 and 2 cause the same type of painful cold sore, the key difference between the two types is recurrence risk. Thats not true if you have had oral sex with your partner and he has cold sores that is how you have got it, l got it that way its just bad luck. Is it possible for the herpes simplex 1 to turn into the herpes simplex II? Is it possible to test negative for both types and then test positive a few months later, even without an outbreak? What about having a false positive test result? Our expert says. I have been living with both genital herpes and genital warts for many years, but I only recently learned about asymptomatic shedding. A month later my partner contracted it from me and had a herpes outbreak 2.

Both Have HSV 1 But In Dif Areas? Help?

Living with genital herpes as a chronic health condition is a relatively straightforward process. If you test positive for HSV-1 or HSV-2, but it’s not the same type that your friend has genitally, then you stand a chance of catch their herpes, but at a somewhat reduced level of risk. If you test negative for both HSV-1 and HSV-2, then you stand a greater risk of catching your friend’s HSV. The fact remains that if you don’t have the same HSV type as your friend, or if you have the same type but not genitally (that you know of) , then you do run some level of risk of becoming infected with genital herpes. Her last partner had no issues D. Can I pass the virus to a partner if I have no symptoms? Both types can cause symptoms on the genitals (genital herpes) , the face (facial cold sores) , or the hand or finger (called a herpetic whitlow). Herpes simplex on the genitals may be type 1 or type 2. First of all, it needs to be acknowledged that genital HSV1 infection has been common for a long time. The signs and symptoms of the first episode or a recurrence are identical for both viral types. Many people do not think that current or potential partners need to be told about oral HSV1 infection, although this may change as more people are aware of their status. Probably what happens is that if you have type 1, when you acquire type 2 you are less likely to have symptoms of it. Most of us have had chickenpox, most of us have had herpes simplex 1 or 2 or both. If the ‘uninfected’ partner has herpes simplex type 1 then if they do acquire the infection, they are far less likely to have severe symptomatic disease. In the UK, seven out of ten people have caught one of them by the age of 25. Both types 1 and 2 can cause the skin conditions known as facial cold sores, genital herpes or whitlows (on fingers or hands). Do not allow a sexual partner to come into contact with the affected area from the time when there are symptoms or warning signs start until sores have fully healed. If you have herpes, are you immune to a second infection from someone else? In most cases, if a person with genital herpes catches genital herpes while with a partner, they are catching it from themselves – having a recurrence. Many people who get type 2 herpes do so despite having type 1 herpes. From what I’ read you can get both Herpes 1&2 in mouth or genital. However, both are responsible for oral and genital herpes, it is a common misconception to think that type 1 is strictly oral and type 2 is just genital. A: Yes, because the same virus causes both genital herpes and cold sores. So if you have HSV-1 then you can spread it through any type of sexual contact where the mouth comes into contact with the genitals (and sometimes the buttocks and legs as well). Is it necessary to reveal that you have had a type 1 genital episode, since the chances of transmission are so freakishly low? That’s a very loaded question which can be hotly debated. And while you’re at it, insist that all partners are tested as well, for both types of HSV and all other STDs, so you can know what precautions to use. It can also be caused by herpes simplex virus type 1, which is the cause of oral herpes (cold sores on the mouth and lips). Regular testing for sexually transmitted diseases is also recommended, especially if one or both partners have other sexual partners. There are two types of HSV: Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). Nevertheless, either type can infect both oral and genital areas. If you have genital HSV-1 and your partner has genital HSV-2 and you have unprotected sex, there is a small but real risk that you will get HSV-2, resulting in more outbreaks and more shedding. And because for so long doctors thought only one type of herpes occurred orally and only one type occurred genitally-which we now know to not be the case-that adds extra confusion to transmission rates.

Personally, I tend to think it’s optimal for both partners to get a basic slate of STD tests before any mouth-to-genital or genital-to-genital contact.
