Hello,

My wife wants to give me oral sex but is concerned about catching the Herpes 1 or 2 virus from me. I currently take Valtrex and have been for the last two years with no break outs.
1.Is it very possible for her to get infected by doing so?
2.What about if she swallows after I achieve an orgasm are the chances increased?
3. I have heard about shedding, can someone explain this to my wife and I?
4. What are the chances of her contracting the virus without the use of a condom when an outbreak is not present?

Very Sincerely,

G...

the herpes handbook at www.westoverheights.com is a free and terrific resource. I recommend you both read through it. It explains shedding of the virus both with and without obvious lesions present very nicely :)
