Success stories of not transmitting?

Recommended Posts

My wife and I have been together over 4 years, decided together to not use protection, only suppressive therapy (twice daily acyclovir) and haven’t passed herpes to her yet. But we did get her pregnant! Hence this cute lil boy we have. 😉

My boyfriend and I also decided together to not use protection (I cannot get pregnant), but I am not on suppressive therapy, and it's been 7 months so far and I have not passed it to him.

Almost 3 years with my partner and I haven’t passed it to him. We don’t use protection and I haven’t used valtrex in a long time either.

We obviously abstain during outbreaks and when I’m experiencing prodromal symptoms. There have been times I’ve been unaware of things happening below and after sex have experienced outbreaks.

After having open conversations with my partner I am finally starting to realise that he is completely comfortable with the risk and if I did transmit it to him, he wouldn’t hold me accountable (although I know I would feel shitty, his acceptance would get us through it).

For me, it’s mostly about being with someone who fully accepts me and makes me feel secure despite my own worries and stresses.
