1. Is there any information in the transmission of the herpes virus during or after my wife preforms fellatio. In addition, to that I have been on 1000mg of Valtrex medication daily for two years.
2. If my semen is transfered to her either by intercourse or by swallowing and there are not any symtoms present prior to the transfer, is it still possible for her to get infected. If so, what estimated percentage could be assumed.

has your wife tested negative for hsv2 I presume?

herpes can be present in semen however it's the actual sex act that is the risk, not just contact with semen. you can transmit hsv2 through oral sex but the risk is rather low. we don't have stats for oral sex like we do genital sex.

My wife has not been tested and is assumed to be negative since she has only been with one other man besides me. I suppose that we need to get her tested just to know where we are at this point. We have only had unprotected intercourse one time without ejaculation since we have been together.
