Doctor :

User :   My new boyfriend has told me that so many things are still safe but I want a medical opinion also
Doctor :  
first thing as you know is herpes is an std
Doctor :  
sexually transmitted disease
Doctor :  
the first prevention is avoiding sex
Doctor :  
until cured
Doctor :  
can wait for an week or two isnt it
Doctor :  
because the rashes are really painfull
User :   I was not aware there was a cure
Doctor :  
and infectious
Doctor :  
it is the supportive and suppressive therapy
User :   ok
Doctor :  
helping our own body to fight it
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
it is the way of fighting this disease

since herpes is an viral disease

Doctor :  
feel free to
User :   my boyfriend says its ok for me to touch his testicles, anus and penis without condom if he isnt broke out is this true?
Doctor :  
does he have any std
User :   yes he has herpes
Doctor :   No
to be on the safer side
Doctor :  
bcoz the rashes will contain virus
Doctor :  
and how does he know that it has not burst open
Doctor :  
the rashes have all the stages at a time
User :   ohk he also says that it is ok for him to ejaculate on my stomach, can i get the virus if he does?
Doctor :   normally the virus takes an form of droplets to infect
User :   so does that mean yes it will give me herpes or not?
Doctor :  
if you are sure that the droplets are not formed and you dont inhale
Doctor :  
if not there is one small scratch in stomach that is sufficient for entry
User :   ok thank you
Doctor :  
of course the chance is less
Doctor :  
but the risk is not ruled out
Doctor :  
risk is always present
Doctor :  
and moreover it is best to use an sanitiser until he is cured
User :   ohk
User :   thanks very much!
Doctor :   are you there
User :   yes I am here
Doctor :   condoms are the barrier contraceptive so the protect only till they are in place intact
User :   but do I need protection from his testicles touching me during intercourse ?
Doctor :   normally if there are no rashes thats fine
Doctor :  
but never allow to touch any of the raw areas
Doctor :  
any cuts
Doctor :  
the mucus membrane cover area
User :   ok, and if he touches his penis to put the condom on and then touches me vaginally can I get something that way?
Doctor :  
the chance is reduced but can never say no
User :   ok thank you!
Doctor :  
because precum also contains virus
Doctor :  
at the time of infection
User :   does it all contain the virus? so not to swallow the precum or cum?
Doctor :  
yes thats why we advise condoms
Doctor :  
just to satisfy with minimum action

as both mouth and vagina are lined by mucus membrane
