Can HSV2 positive partners have unprotected sex?

Recommended Posts

I found out a while ago that I have hsv2 and I unknowingly infected my new boyfriend. Fortunately, after a few fights and heated discussions, we're still together. So since we'd like to get intimate again, seeing that sex is an important part of the relationship...what I'd like to know is if we can go ahead and have unprotected sex seeing that we're both already infected. I will ask my doctor but for now, I'd like to know. Especially oral sex or is that off the table?

Just to throw some more in here: Still don't have sex while you're having an outbreak (not that you would want to anyway) as that could cause auto-inoculation to other parts of the body (unlikely since there's antibodies helping you out, but good to be cautious).
