What is the safest way to be intimate with a woman with herpes with a less likely chance of contracting the virus?

Herpes. First we need to know what type of herpes she has. Second, where does she have it? If it is not known then there is no way to test or guess where she is contagious. Many people are being put on a herpes mediation to suppress viral shedding, but this lowers the risk of transmission by 50% at most. 90% of people with herpes do not have an outbreak and thus cannot tell us where they are infected.
