Genital Herpes 1

I recently found out that the man I am dating has genital herpes 1 that he contracted in the past via oral sex. He is on medication and has not had an outbreak in some time. However, we had unprotected sex. Although he wasn't having an outbreak, am I still at any real risk for contracting it genitally from him?

you were at almost no risk of contracting hsv1 genitally from him.

have you ever been tested to know your own herpes status? you two can't make educated decisions about what precautions to take together until you know who has what.

did you both also cover all other std testing prior to starting to have unprotected sex together?
