Genital HSV-1 transmission
I was diagnosed with genital hsv-1 in August of 2005.  I have been in a monogamous relationship with the same man for years and feel that I contracted this from him, he has oral hsv-1.  I am very concerned about transmitting this to him in the genital region.  I have had a difficult time with this and have been suffering from numerous outbreaks especially after we have been intimate.  My question is what are the chances of him getting this from me even if I am suffering from an outbreak? Also I am currently on Valtrex-500 daily.  Thank you.

There is an STD forum on this site.  Please check that section out.  Many people have asked that exact same question.  The Dr there has great advice.   As a quick answer to your question, oral transmission does occur but it's very rare.   Also, 50% of the population (according to his statistics) have hsv-1 so it's very common.  

Good luck
