Portland herpes dating - Online sex
Lots of people ask me how likely it is that they will either contract or transmit a genital herpes (HSV 2) infection to a sexual partner, so I thought I would address that in today’s blog.
So testing for genital herpes is the first step – finding out who is infected and who is not.Let’s say you have an infected male and an uninfected female.If they avoid sex during outbreaks, don’t use condoms regularly, and don’t take antiviral therapy every day, the risk of tranmission is about 10% per year.But if you add condoms, it reduces transmission about about 50%, if he takes Valtrex 500 mg once a day, he can reduce transmission also by about 50%. If it is a woman infected with HSV 2 having sex with an uninfected male, given the circumstances listed above again, then the transmission rate is about 4% prior to the interventions of condoms and Valtrex.Which interventions are appropriate and desirable are decisions that individual couples makes, based on concerns about infection.These events are not run by HWerks but rather by a dedicated team of volunteers.
The hotel does NOT know what the group is about for the privacy of the group. They just see a great group of people there to have fun for the weekend.
As soon as the event websites are available, they will be posted here.
I hope this is helpful for those of you wondering about how likely it is that you might infect someone else or get infected yourself.
