Re: Is it possible to have a low strain of HSV2?
Post your results if you can, line for line.
The idea of catching a stronger viral load from someone else, when you have a preexisting case, is known as a super infection. I think you'll find few if any documented cases where this has happened. The reason being if a normal body already has the antibodies, then it will have no problem fighting off more of the virus.
One person having an outbreak won't cause an outbreak in the other. However, friction from intercourse will.
Taking Valtrex is a personal decision, it has been shown to reduce shedding.
You'll read stories all over where someone didn't have noticeable outbreaks for years then bam, outbreaks every other month for a while. Which goes to proves, this virus has a mind of its own and acts differently for everyone.
