Ways to prevent female to male transmission

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Im trying to think of ways to reduce the possibility of transmission from a female to male and am wondering if anyone has any thoughts/opinions on these?

aside from anti virals - would you think the following might reduce the risk of transmission?

female condoms as more of the female is covered? Less skin to skin?

im not sure of the technical term but the penis rings as again, they provide another barrier between the skin? Some look quite large?

Are there any swabs we can do to tell if we are shedding? 
Is there anything such as latex undergarments women can wear to protect the partner?

Possibly a stretch but wondering if anyone may have any ideas/suggestions?

Obviously male condoms don’t offer complete protection. 
thanks for your thoughts.

The transmission rate female yo male is already lower than the other way around. Use lubrication to reduce friction during sex, the male can wear a condom. They reduce the risk even more. Condom plus antiviral puts the risk at like 2%....that's very low!!!! I've never passed it on and I've had hsv 40 years!
