    We’ve all been there. You’ve found someone special you want to date and it’s time to give “the talk.” Here are some tips and facts you can use to make it go more smoothly.

Know the Risks

The annual risk of herpes transmission (between sexually active partners having sex regularly) is approximately 10% per year. 

Studies were performed on partnerships where one herpes infected partner was aware of their condition and abstained from sex during and around the time of an outbreak. Transmission rates ranged from 5-10%

It is possible to spread herpes in between outbreaks through asymptomatic shedding. Taking a suppressive medication has found to cut transmission rates in half. Using condoms also cuts transmission rates in half.

That means the use suppressive therapy combined with condoms can be very effective at preventing transmission. Although transmission may still take place.
