Yes, genital hsv1 would be tbe risk. The odds are very low but genital hsv1 is becoming very popular. Half of all newly diagnosed genital infections are hsv1.

Yes and we are finding out its becoming much more common as it was not know to pass it before as those with oral hsv1 could pass it to your genital area.

No, the virus stays in the area it was contracted in. A genital infection can not be spread by her giving you oral sex.
