HSV-1 Transfering Question
I got my first cold sore and then had oral sex with my girlfriend, a week later she went to the doctor and now has HSV-1 genitally. So I have oral HSV-1 and she has genital HSV-1:

Can I get genital HSV-1 by continuing oral sex with her? Is there any risks, since I gave her it?
Can I only get genital HSV-1 by having unprotected sex with her?

it's not likely that you'd contract hsv1 genitally from her. it's still recommended that you err on the side of caution though and when she has genital symptoms, avoid sex until they are gone.  once you have hsv1 on one body part, it's not likely that you'd contract it on another.
