My question is: if we both already have herpes 1 & 2 can we a) re-infect each other or b) cause either of us to have more outbreaks?Also, can we spread the virus to other locations on our own bodies? The average number of outbreaks is about four to five a year for people with genital herpes and one a year for oral herpes. Herpes has many strains and blood tests to determine specific strains are very expensive and not routine at all (not even in standard STD/STI screening) as a ‘cold sore’ strain can easily be mistaken for a ‘genital’ strain.

As long as the relationship is monogamous, both partners have the same type of herpes infection(s) (known as a seroconcordant couple), and both partners are free of other sexually transmitted infections, it’s not necessary to use barrier methods like condoms or dental dams. In addition to using latex condoms, keep in mind that the best way to have safer sex is in the context of a mutually monogamous relationship (you only have sex with each other) in which both partners have been tested and know each other’s STD status.
Friction can aggravate herpes sores and slow healing, so you may want to avoid getting it on when one of you has an outbreak for comfort reasons. I have been living with both genital herpes and genital warts for many years, but I only recently learned about asymptomatic shedding.
