Hsv + boyfriend has yet to be tested...

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend knows my status and doesnt seem to care if he contracts the virus or not. Even tho he has yet to have an outbreak im sure by now he has contracted the virus...He wont make time to get a blood test, he figures positive or negative he still wants to be with me. Is it bad we dont use condoms ?? are there cons of two hsv2 + people being intimate unprotected?

Hey @tee19262! It's totally up to you two! Each person takes their sexual health into their own hands and determines the level of risk/reward they want to take on. Sounds like your boyfriend is making an educated decision based on what he knows. By the way, it's not a given that he is going to get herpes. My wife and I have been together for about 4 years now and she hasn't gotten herpes and we didn't use condoms for a while (and ended up getting pregnant! Woohoo!). 😁

There is still a possibility that he doesn’t have the virus even though you are having unprotected sex.  It takes 3 months for the antibodies to build up in your bloodstream for the blood test to come back positive though.  If you both have HSV 2 and you both have the antibodies then there is no risk of you passing it back and forth to each other because you both already have it.... but that being said, he may not have contracted the virus from you.
