Question: What are the chances of getting hsv2 from infected partner?

Yes! According to a 2010 study conducted by Emily T. Martin and others, there is a high risk of herpes transmission during protected sex when one of the partners is herpes-positive. The probability reaches 50% to 70%.

How likely am I to get hsv2 if my partner has it?

In studies with couples where one partner had genital herpes, the other partner became infected within one year in 5 to 10% of the couples. The people in these studies only rarely used condoms, though – and if they did, it was mostly during an outbreak.
