Hi.Two questions please - If I've just had a HSV2 outbreak: 1) does that mean the virus/ shedding probably won't happen for a while and it would be the least likely time to potentially transfer it to a partner? (aka - safest time is right after the outbreak has cleared bc the virus has now gone dormant again) 2) Once the sores are gone, how many days until Im clear to have sex (is it once the sores disappear - or is the virus still present for a few days after the sores are gone

    The week or two after an outbreak is a period of frequent shedding.
