Q. I am just starting to see someone who does not have herpes. I’ve told him I have herpes and he has been ok.
We have not had sex as yet. I want to know what can we do to reduce the risk of him getting infected when we make love.
Also, can we have a bath together or share a towel? - A Datepositive.net member.
A. No problem bathing together or sharing a towel, unless you have very obvious visible sore lesions.
You should still use protection for intercourse as you may have internal visible lesions or be shedding HSV. - Dr. Laurence Gerlis.
