Dating a guy who has herpes. He's never had symptoms but blood test positive. What's the chance of me getting herpes if we use condoms and no sores?

The barriers reduce the risk, but they do not eliminate it. Male carriers tend to not show symptoms or signs, even though they can potentially secrete the virus during sexual activity.

You see it depends on the virus you have,he has,and the immunity you have developed overall.But even with immunity you can get either, just less probably.Next,you can get it without lesions because the virus can be hanging out there for several days before an outbreak.That's the basics. ...Read more
