What are the possibilities of transmitting HSV2 from an infected woman to a man and how to prevent it if they intend to enter into a relationship. Thanks
Hello , Welcome to Icliniq.
I understand your concern about the HSV .. before I begin to preventive measures let me tell you it how it can spreads.. It is spread through oral, vaginal, or anal sex. It may be spread even if you do not see blisters. It can also be spread to other areas of your body, including your eyes, lips, mouth, by touching open blisters.
Unprotected sex increases your risk for genital herpes. Now as you are well aware about its spreads now you just have to take precautions accordingly. Follow the following advice-
Fortunately It can be treated effectively with proper medication.. let me know in the follow up if you need it. I hope this will help you. Regards! Do give your valuable feedback.
