Preventing transmission to my partner

Recommended Posts

Hi, all. I was diagnosed with GHSV in September last year I have never had an outbreak. I really had a hard coping with the diagnosis and I only found out after infecting my then boyfriend. You guys really helped me to deal with the all the crazy things that I went through. I managed to move on and realize that having herpes does not make me less of the person that I am. I am still me and I can still achieve my goals and work towards living my dream. Now I just met the most amazing man and I am falling in love. We have been dating for a month now and I feel that it's high time I disclosed. I just have a few questions;

how do I prevent transmission to my partner?


Here in Zimbabwe, we don't have Valtrex, we only have Aciclovir. Does it work the same way if I take it as suppressive therapy?


Also, does L-lysine help to prevent transmission?


Can I give my man oral or kiss him without transmitting because I got a blood test I dont know if i have it genitally only or both genitally and orally?
