Dating and condoms

Recommended Posts

I have been disagose with having herpes type two, according to my reports from my 1st and I think only outbreak in about 10 months, well according to my doctor, who pats me on my knee and said I would know if it happened. I have been in counseling to heal myself and to work on my self esteem but I think I am ready to date again. I have been tested for everything else and it's negative so my question is, knowing the percentage of transmission using only condoms from female to male is 2% when not having a outbreak, is it worth it take suppressive meds? I understand that it's 1% if you do but I have used condoms in the past and I more comfortable doing that and less anitexy knowing I am doing that. Cause I also want to protect not only him but myself from getting something else cause that 3 times more likely to get hiv with what I have vs the other type has my fear into high gear.
