No-Condom Talk/Suppressive Therapy or not?

Recommended Posts

Hey all! It's been some time since I've been on here but I've been doing great after my HSV2 diagnosis. haha I'm on here once again because my boyfriend and I have opened up the "no-condom" discussion. When I was diagnosed, the doctor told me that suppressive therapy wasn't recommended since I hadn't experienced an outbreak. After 2 years, I still haven't had an outbreak and I was wondering if any of you are in the same situation or if you still take medication regardless.

I discussed this with my boyfriend but he said he would be open to ditching the condoms once we're married and if we can lessen the risk of transmission. I don't know if my own doctor misinformed me or not. 


Any suggestions?

We'll, for.YOU, ur seems like suppressive therapy isn't necessary because you haven't had to deal with painful outbreaks and who knows maybe you never will. And, if you do have an outbreak you can take needs then to shorten the duration.

But I'm still of the same mind as your BF. Do what you can to protect him because you don't know at any given time if you're shredding so either condoms or meds. If/when you enter a life-long committed relationship if he's okay with the increased risk go condom and med-free. My 2¢.
