What happens if both partners have ghsv2...does it 'double' the chance of of getting more outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

Hi @flamingofrenzy!

(Great screen name by the way)

If both partners have the same strain of HSV they will have just as many antibodies as if they weren’t with someone with HSV. You can’t get “more” herpes from your partner. You don’t double up on antibodies and the HSV doesn’t get any worse if you both have it. It’s not additive in that way; you either have it or you don’t. There’s not a spectrum of how much HSV you have. Now, HSV can affect different bodies differently, but it won’t affect you differently if your partner also has it or not.
