Quick ? for Backpacker or experienced

I just have a quick question. I have had HSV-1 for a year now and am wondering if semen contains the herpes virus, like if i were to get semen on my hands or on my partner does it contain a large amount of the virus if any at all? thankyou

No...perhaps minute amounts of herpes may be present in semen, but for all intent and purposes, it is only transmitted by skin-to-skin contact.

Re: Quick ? for Backpacker or experienced

it depends a lot on if you are shedding. you can shed without symptoms. hsv-1 infections in the genital tract do not tend to recurr frequently, but are more likely to shed asymptomatically then hsv2 infections in the genital tract.

and pp is right, it doesnt matter if she swallows.
