If you think it is ok to spread illness, or can I say inflict pain or create another tragedy, go ahead. This website is my big support, so I speak from my heart. We never fully knew the body condition of the other person, the financial situation, job difficulty, childhood background, personality, family support until it takes years of time. So infecting another person will lead to the repercussion that we would never think of. Why do you want another person to go through what we had been---even valtrex will give them intial time to adjust by having dizziness on the first day, and impair driving. Then, the body will get use to the valtrex. What happened if the person can't work, the family does not forgive the person, or some friends are just panic, or the worst---commit suicide herself/himself?
Even a cold spreaded from a co-worker sharing the same cubicle gave us one day's uncomfortness and lost of work that we wanted to curse him, why will the other half at certain times not want to curse you? Unless, the person really wants other qualities from you, he/she will not mind.
The uncomfortness and inconveniences in HSV2 are so huge that it is the family of coldsore virus but can't be compare with just a coldsore. SARS virus is the same family of a common cold but it kills people within one month. Why? The SARS virus under microscope is the same looking as common cold virus except with a corona crown on the virus, and it is believe to be cold virus jumped to animal and develope into a new species of cold virus that human had not experienced before, and have no immunity. Some of my friends suspect that due to oral sex, HSV1 mixed with some other human virus, then changed species to HSV2.
In the 80's, Hepatitis B and Hepatits C are not listed as STD. Now, the doctors knew how they can be spread and listed them as STD, too. We never known if cancer can be contagious, too. Now, the answer is no----cancer will not spread to another person. However, couple months ago, some doctors discovered there is a virus associated with prostrate cancer. So whether cancer can be contagious will wait till years of discovery. Better be safe than sorry. A friend talked me even if there is only 4 % chance to get infected, what if the 4% came, can one be able to take it determines one's action.
