    May seem silly but how did y’all conceive with hsv? Husband does not have it and we have always used condoms. Rarely have outbreaks (had my first one in 9 years this past fall) but still use condoms just in case. Should we just snip the top of the condom? Did you just risk and not use one?

    Great question Tay!
    If you are wanting to get pregnant, then you will need to remove the condom. It doesn’t sound like your symptoms are frequent, which is great. Unfortunately, there is not a way to protect your husband 100%, but transmission rates are still single digits as long as you don’t have intercourse with any symptoms.
    Good luck and keep us posted.
    BTW, we just had a women give birth naturally in our community and baby and Mamma are doing great. This is quote common.
    If you need more support, let’s get on the phone and explore 1:1 coaching. I have helped many couples move through this, get pregnant and ease their fears.

    Use antivirals and no condom?
