Hi and thanks for the query.

It does not reduce the risk to zero, asymptomatic shedding always confers some risk even when you are asymptomatic. However, it is okay to have sex as long as your partner understands the risk. It is advised that even between symptoms (in the absence of sores) use a latex condom for vaginal and anal sex. And a dental dam for oral sex.
