No, an outbreak in your genital area would not make you more vulnerable to HIV. HIV is a fragile virus. It is passed to a guy during intercourse via the pee slit opening or the underside of the foreskin if he is not circumcised. You were wearing a condom during intercourse which provided you with very effective protection.

Unfortunately your sexual partner would definitely have been vulnerable to picking up hsv2 from you since you are contagious during an outbreak. You should not be having sex with anyone during an outbreak.

But as far as HIV is concerned you are worrying needlessly.

That's right. Sexually only unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse are confirmed risks for the transmission of HIV. It's just that simple.

Yes.

Harry,

I removed the incorrect response you had from an unauthorised poster. Sorry I didn't get to it before you saw it.

NO hiv risk.

A herpes lesion will only increase your hiv risk if the lesion actually goes inside an hiv positive person's body. If the lesion you had was on an area not covered by the condom, it most likely did not enter the other person's body.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.

Once outside the body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture content all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. For this reason, even if you get vaginal fluid dripping onto a herpes lesion or cut or whatever, this happens outside the body and therefore is not a risk.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST FOR HIV SPECIFICALLY OVER THIS PROTECTED INTERCOURSE, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Keep it simple, Harry. Ann has thoroughly explained the situation to you and made it very clear that you were not at risk for HIV. Period.

Bad,

You've already been told that this is not a risk. Re-read your thread.

You need to check yourself out before you have sex to make sure you're not having an outbreak. It pisses me off that you're so worried about hiv (when you haven't had a risk) all the while spreading your herpes. Knock it off already!

You need to know that when you give a woman vaginal herpes, you are putting her future unborn children at risk for blindness. Herpes may seem like not much to worry about to you, but it can have very serious complications. I could just slap you for being so complacent.

It sounds like you need to talk to your doctor about taking prophylactic acyclovir. It will stop you from having outbreaks and help you stop infecting others with your herpes.

STOP SPREADING YOUR HERPES!

Doubts and fears aren't facts. You were not at risk for HIV. Period. Cut out the drama and get on with your life. If you come back again about this non-risk you are going to find yourself gettimg a Time Out from the site for 28 days.

HIV is not your problem. Period.

Harry,

If your herpes lesion is on your balls or the very base of your penis, for example, it won't be covered by the condom. But your balls aren't going to enter her vagina either and neither will the very base of your penis.

Like Andy said, you need to cut the drama and get on with your life. You weren't at risk for hiv - even though you've been putting others at risk for your herpes. That really pisses me off. Sorry, but that's how it is. Now go away.
