Starting a sexual relationship after several years without, I had a full STD screening done. Genital HSV2 antibodies were detected, which came as only a partial surprise because I had learned after the fact that my previous sexual partner has it, but because I never experienced an outbreak or any symptoms, I didn't think I had it. That's the background.
Searching for answers online, I only found the people asking if they could give themselves Genital HSV1 from Oral HSV1 by sharing spit with a partner who then performs oral sex on them. My concern is the reverse.
Can give myself oral HSV2 if my semen were to come into contact with my mouth? I like to taste it from time to time, and have frequently since my sexual contact with the carrier I was exposed to with no ill effect, but I'm wondering if I've just somehow kept dodging the bullet, as it were.
I can best help you if you can post your actual herpes test results. even though you haven't asked about confirming your status, always best to make sure you were properly tested and to see if your results were within a range that needs further confirmatory testing. just like to cover all the bases here :)
will you give yourself hsv2 orally? no you will not.
