You are very unlikely to contract hsv1 genitally since you have it orally. Your own hsv1 infection gives you significant protection against contracting it later on on other body parts. It's still a good idea to err on the side of caution and don't allow anyone with a cold sore to perform oral on you until it's healed - for their protection and for yours ( normal flora in the genital area isn't always so normal when introduced into an open lesion on the mouth ).
Did you end up getting a cold sore down there? Cause I did the same thing I have a cold sore and my boyfriend kissed me then performed oral sex but my cold sore is pretty much a scab now. Any comments in that?
