Advice post-sex outbreak?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Grateful for this community.

Just starting dating(?) this guy. He's HSV- and a sweetheart. We had great sex and now I have a potential outbreak, but I'm not sure? It's not where it usually is, nor does it hurt like it usually does, and I am wondering if it's (sorry, TMI) from some intense bowel movements I've been having. Should I abstain? If you think so, how long? Should I abstain if the area is far south of where...sex happens? Does anyone do anything specific not to get sex outbreaks? Having to wait after each time I have sex would really suck. Thanks so much for being here for me.

Sorry for the TMI nature.

I'm also wondering this too. I'm with an amazing HSV- guy and now I'm having so much anxiety. I was with someone else for 2 years who I never transferred anything to and was always super cautious. With him we have a lot more sex and it's a lot rougher too. We also got brazilian waxes and didn't listen and had sex that day. I'm so worried that I wasn't paying enough attention to my body since everything was hurting a bit down there that day from the wax. He said his area is still itchy even though mine isn't anymore. Then yesterday he said he had a weird shooting pain down his leg and started having some cold symptoms so now I'm so worried and anxious and down. I don't know what to do or how I'm supposed to handle this. I couldn't imagine hurting him like that.
