Thank you Betsy
I just want to make sure I'm understanding this so let me just say, in advance, I'm sorry for asking the same questions in a different way. I know that's annoying.
So if my husband, through a blood test, is positive for HSV 1, then we can have unprotected sex unless there is a lesion? We wouldn't have to worry about him getting in the genitals (since we don't know if he does shed from there or not since there has been no OB for him)? Oral sex, though important, isn't my biggest concern. But could we assume he has it in his mouth? Does it matter where his shedding zone is (mouth/genitals)? Is it as simple that he has it anywhere so moving to a new sight is not a worry? I know I'm being paranoid about this but I have a deep seeded need to know that when we do resume sex that we're going about it right and not working on misconceptions on my part.
As far as having sex during an OB? Not in this life!
Sorry to be the wall you're pounding your head against.
