Hey @Jenn88,

It's a 4% chance of transmission to men if no condoms or medication is used and you avoid sex during outbreaks. (10% for women.) All the helpful facts are all boiled down in the handouts that come with the e-book here: https://herpeslife.com/opportunity/free-ebook-signup.html

The 2% of transmission with medication or condoms is just an average. It is various on every single person.  The first year of infection usually is higher risk. More often outbreaks means more asymptotic shedding, and more chance of transmission. According to some research, races may also effect the shedding/ transmission risk. It is said white peoples shed more than black. Of course, your overall immune system has huge impact too. I guess that’s why some people never infect their H- partners for years or life. But some get infected maybe by only one for few sext encounter.
