Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with ghsv1. My partner does not

Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with ghsv1. My partner does not have hsv. Is there anything she can do to prevent from getting hsv beside protective sex? Is there medication or supplements she can start taking?

My doctor told there’s no need to get on any meds since I’ve only have had one outbreak. I’m currently taking a multi vitamin and lysine.

If anyone has been successful on not passing hsv to their partner please share. My gut is telling me it’s unavoidable and she will eventually get it.

you may want to keep some on hand if the time comes when you need it.
