Since I contracted genital HSV1 from my boyfriend who has oral HSV1...should I then say I contracted an STD from someone who doesn't have an STD? I don't understand since he gave me genital HSV1 with a cold sore via oral sex, then why doesn't he have an STD? I find this all too confusing!
Okay...then I guess I don't have an std either? This is really confusing...I thought the only way to get an STD was from someone who had an STD! And I did ask my boyfriend before we were intimate if he has any STD's and he told me "NO"...
So, I guess he answered truthfully...but he still gave me an STD...
I got an STD from someone who doesn't have an STD then???
If you just have hsv1 orally - you don't have a std. when grammy kisses you as an infact with a cold sore on her mouth and gives you hsv1 orally, that is not a sexually transmitted infection. Kisses are not sex.
If you've contracted hsv1 in the genital area from oral sex, then you do have a SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTION because it's an infection you got from a sexual contact.
If you are someone who has hsv1 genitally then yes indeed you do have a std/sti. make sense?
