genital herpes

Hi, i wanted to know that if you have received oral sex from a guy, but never gave him oral sex and from that you have been diagnosed with herpes(simplex1) and you have only had outbreaks in the vaginal area, and never around the mouth because you didnt give oral sex in return, is there a way that you can give somebody herpes from giving them oral sex ?

if you have genital herpes and a partner performs oral sex on you, there is a risk that they'd contract your genital herpes orally. the risk is very low, especially with hsv1 genitally.

if you only have hsv1 genitally, you performing oral sex isn't a risk for transmitting your herpes to them.
