Re: how long to wait after herpes outbreak before sex

i think that it's pretty different in every situation. if you are free of blisters/sores, and everything feels fine, then maybe a day after, or maybe wait a few days. i don't know if there is a definitive answer.

Ok, Since is correct everyone is different, but even after the blisters or sores are healed, you will still go through a period call Shedding, where the dead skin falls off and new skin comes in, this is by far even more catagous, then the actually OB, because most people don't realize this is occuring, I will normally wait an extra 5-7 days, if it was serve maybe 2 weeks..again this is why alot of people who have herpes pass it without even knowing that they have the disease because they shed but produce no other symptoms... If you need more information you can ******** the Herpes Handbook, it can answer alot of questions in more detail, but again as Since mentioned, everyone is different and they react differently to this Virus, so it really depends on how well you know your body and the signs.. If you decide to have sex right after an OB, I would make sure that you use a condom and keep the boxer short area as we refer to it covered for extra precaution, also maybe try some L-lysine, it is over the counter and helps regengerate tissue growth faster.. take Care coping")
