I acquired hsv-1 orally and genitally about two years ago... I gave my partner oral sex, then we had unprotected sex, he never gave me oral sex....therefore he must of had it genitally..my question is if I meet someone with hsv-1 orally can I give hsv-1 to them genitally?
they could contract hsv1 genitally but since they have it orally, the odds of that occurring are very , very low and not really worth worrying about. Just never have sex anytime you have any genital symptoms to err on the side of caution. same as never perform oral on them when you have a cold sore present or feel one might be coming on.
