Since you also have hsv1 orally - your risk of contracting it genitally are greatly lowered.  It could happen but it's less likely to happen.  Always err on the side of caution though and don't perform oral with an obvious cold sore of course.

Should you develop any genital lesions within the next 2-3 weeks - be sure to see your doctor for a lesion culture and typing but chances are good you won't get any.
