Herpes Transmission Rates

Wearing a condom does not keep her from catching your virus it just lowers the risk of her getting it.Using condoms + you having no outbreaks when having sex lowers the risk compared to when you have outbreaks.

As time goes by the outbreaks become mild but the virus will shed with no symptoms of an outbreak so there is no 100% guarantee that you can never transmit the virus if your sexually active.

Artificial insemination is not the only way to go if your partner is willing to take the risks. If you do everything possible to lower the risk (condoms, antivirals, healthy living etc) I think you can bring down the risk of infection to as low as 10%.

Herpes Transmission Rates

  • The likelihood of passing genital herpes to a partner is highest during an outbreak (times when a sore is present).
  • When a person is not experiencing an outbreak, there is a 4-10% chance of transmitting it. (Depending on gender)
According to studies done by Valtrex, these are the rates of transmission per year of regular sex:
  • If partners avoid sex during outbreaks: 4% chance transmission from female to male; 8% male to female
  • If partners also use condoms or antiviral medication: 2% female to male; 4% per year male to female
  • If partners also use condoms and antiviral medications: 1% female to male; 2% male to female

If you want to prevent your partners they're having sex with from contracting the disease, you may choose an online herpes dating site and date some people in the same boat.

Online herpes dating site create an environment where herpes singles can find love and friendship without the fear of judgement, disclosure and being stigmatized.
