Shingles - safe sex? Please help!
Hi there just found this forum looking around for help with information on Shingles. I'm 24 years old and am just recovering from a bout of shingles. My partner has already had chicken pox as a child and so have I.
From what i can gather shingles is something that appears internally and its not a virus that you can contract from people ala colds, flu etc.
My question is when is it safe to have sex with my partner who is on the contraceptive pill? I asked my doctor but to be honest he was as helpful as a whole in my head just saying you should be fine touch wood dont worry you should be fine!
Does anyone know if shingles can be transmitted via sexual intercourse or is this not a possibility?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as its been a while since i had some fun ;-)
