How do i have sex?

I got my test results back about 3 weeks ago and I have type 2 herpes... I talked to my doctor about a few things and she said I could still have sex with a condom but how will I ever try and make a baby? I'm too afraid to pass on the herpes to my lover.

Re: How do i have sex?

Are you currently in a relationship? If yes, did your partner get tested?

You can still have a baby because you do not need to use condoms all of the time. If you are with someone and they accept you and the virus eventually condoms may not matter. I mean you can still pass it on even when condoms are being used it lessens the risk of transmission but the risk is still there.

Re: How do i have sex?

My partner and I only have sex when I don't have an outbreak, as well as when I am clear of any scabbing. We are very careful and have been having sex without a condom throughout our entire relationship (3 years). I take extra precautions also. For example, depending on where the most recent outbreak was, I often manipulate my position to avoid touching the area against my partner if I can. He is so far herpes free, but he has accepted the fact that one day he may get it.
