Here are the Female to Male transmission rates

If you have 100 couples where the female has HSV 2 but not the male (these figures are over a year) the odds of female to male transmission are if you do nothing other than avoid sex during an outbreak 4 men out of a 100 will get herpes in a year or 4% (96% chance of not getting it) If you do go on a suppressive therapy then it drops to 2 men out of a 100 in a year or 2% (98% chance of not getting it) and if you use suppressive and a condom the chances are 1 man out of a 100 will get herpes in one year or 1% (99% chance of not getting it).

The valtrex and transmission study stats are based on having sex 2 times/week.

Addism:

Please get tested. Even if there's a 96% chance you are not infected, there are a lot of people running about with this virus. It's just better to know since you have been in this situation. I don't know if you knew that the person had herpes or not, but knowledge is best.

Thanks.
