Can a herpes outbreak be spread by masturbation?

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed with HSV1 & 2 & need some guidance. My initial outbreak was at the very end of my urethra. Is it possible to spread the OB to other areas, anus or parts between, during masturbation? Due to the OB location should masturbation be done with a condom? So many questions....

Don't masturbate when you're having an actual herpes outbreak. Other than that, it's really hard (pun intended) to spread herpes to other parts of your body (also known as "auto-inoculation") via viral shedding due to your body building up immunity (antibodies) to herpes the longer you have it.
