I have genital herpes. I am with a man that is in stage three kidney failure. Does anyone know how it would effect him if he caught herpes from me? :?: :?:

you can keep his risk down to 1%/year of contracting hsv2 from you if you take daily suppressive therapy, use condoms and avoid sex anytime you have anything going on genitally.

his immunosuppression would mean that he might have more recurrences and doses of herpes antivirals would need to be adjusted due to his decreased kidney function should he contract hsv2 from you.

has he been tested to know his own status yet?
