My girlfriend has hsv-1 genitally and i have hsv-1 orally since i was a child. Is it possible for me to get hsv-1 on my genitals from my girlfriends hsv-1 even though i already have it orally?

Experience of medical practitioners suggests you have near complete immunity from obtaining the virus elsewhere on your body. I am yet to see a doctor talk about such a case. This is pretty impressive when you think of the extent of oral sex and that a third of genital infections are HSV1.

There are of course no studies given how rare such an infection (that is, a genital HSV1  infection once you have an established oral infection) is.
