Have an igg blood test. That's the first thing i would do.
He is correct on that. I will say that in most cases an hsv1 prinary outbreak is pretty severe.
To be honest with you. I would rather my oartner have genital hsv1 than oral. When hsv1 is genital it has few outbreaks and many people don't get outbreaks past the primary. It sheds very little and isn't very potent when it does. This is why genital to genital transfer of hsv1 is very rare.
Either way i doubt what you are experiencing is genital hsv1.
I would still get a type specific blood test for hsv1 and hsv2.
I went through the same thing. I am hsv 1 positive from oral sex with a partner with oral herpes.
