If you both already have HSV-2, then using condoms or taking daily antiviral therapy would be totally optional, and not necessary, if you both already have HSV2-. If you get a *type specific herpes blood test* and you are negative for HSV-2, and your boyfriend was positive for HSV-2, then yes, your boyfriend should consider taking Valtrex or Acyclovir as daily antiviral suppressive therapy to help reduce the risk of spreading herpes to you.
If his doctor thinks that just because he doesn’t have noticeable symptoms, then he cannot spread the virus, then his doctor is one of the very many doctors who are way out-of-date about genital herpes transmission and prevention.
But herpes is NOT included in the standard STD panels. Unless your BF has had noticeable outbreaks, you don’t know if or where he might ever shed the virus.
But you’re not going to be able to catch herpes from dirty sheets, towels, or toilet seats.
Using daily antivirals as suppressive therapy can also reduce the risk of spreading herpes to a partner by up to @ 50%.
Together, these practices cannot guarantee that you are 100% risk free, but you are probably way less at risk of getting herpes from your boyfriend than you are of getting herpes or another STD from somebody else who doesn’t even know they have something and is taking no precautions.
Tinder is a great place to score a last-minute date or a weekend booty call.
However, if you're not careful, dating apps can also be a pretty good place to find some weird sexually transmitted diseases.
