Throat herpes.

Hello again. I've posted numerous times on this forum (most likely exceeding the posting limit, so I apologise)

I had multiple symptoms and concerns and today went for a physical exam and was told I have a fungal infection which explains the majority if not all of my syptoms.
Which would make me feel at ease HOWEVER I'm still painfully concerned about my girlfriends symptoms. She complained of flu-like symptoms and a sore throat in the few days after we had unprotected sex and oral sex and no suspects she has oral thrush which she has had before but she isn't sure.
I've never had herpes sores and in fact no ACTUAL symptoms. What are the chances of her contracting oral herpes from me?

Hi, did you test positive for herpes?

They don't test in the uk without sores. But I've never had any outbreak and last unprotected sex before my new parter was 8 weeks ago.

Just wondering if there's any other explanation besides herpes?

If you said had flu like symptom and body aches, it might be a concern but to have flu like symptoms and a sore throat would lean towards the flu and not herpes.

I suppose. However I think she's noticed maybe ulcers or something to make her think oral thrush. So I guess it's probably herpes.
Would that mean, I would have asymptomatic HSV-1 on my genitals?
