Both partners have herpes

Hello, my current partner gave me herpes; he was undiagnosed until now and we are learning together about what it means for us.
Is it safe for us to have unprotected sex (having children etc..)
Can we pass it back and forth to each?
Can we have oral sex? what are the risks?

if you both have the same type of genital herpes, it's not an issue.

yes you can have unprotected sex.

no you won't pass it back and forth.

yes you can have oral but don't perform it on obvious genital symptoms to err on the side of caution.
