Hi, I recently posted a question on this topic however I felt like I haven’t explained it well enough. Handsfield, I am posting this question for a buddy of mine. This is because CSWs are professionals who are aware of their risks related to sex with multiple partners and tend to both take appropriate precautions to prevent infection and to get checked regularly for infection (to do otherwise would be bad for business), unlike many persons who engage in more casual sexual encounters in other settings and who may not take the same precautions. Biological effiacy is how well a properly used condom works for a particular exposure event; it is 100% for practical purposes against infections transmitted primarily through secretions, such as HIV, gonorrhea, or chlamydia; and somewhat lower for those transmitted skin-to-skin, like herpes, syphilis, and HPV. Thus the studies of condom use for herpes prevention indicate that risk is decreased about another 50-60 percent. Effect of condom use was modeled using a continuous percentage of sex acts during which a condom was used and, alternatively, using absolute numbers of unprotected sex acts. RESULTS: A total of 5384 HSV-2-negative people at baseline contributed 2 040 894 follow-up days; 415 persons acquired laboratory-documented HSV-2 during follow-up.
Again, I just kissed him and never made contact with his penis or anus. Due to itching pubis and anus, went to Urologist who did a DNA swab test on itchy flesh-colored bump on the pubis and area of the pubis near the shaft. Isn’t that great? Would that help a pre-cursor to herpes? Over the next week I had itching on and off.
