spreadin HSV 1

If my boyfriend has HSV1 orally, and I was diagnosed with genital herpes (type still neg after 6 months), can we spread to each other in different areas?  Like If he has a cold sore on his lip, can I get it orally if I already have it genitally?

If you have hsv1 genitally and your bf has hsv1 orally, it's really not an issue at this point. Just avoid having sex with him when you have genital symptoms.

Unless you get an obvious cold sore to know that you also have hsv1 orally, ther'es no way to know if you also contracted it orally when you contracted it genitally.
