If she has no oral hsv then it's zero risk. That being said over half the adult population has oral hsv1
as far as i know she hasnt told me she has it i will ask her if she has oral hsv1 but she has been honest with me so far
And there is no reason to think she wouldn't. The problem is many people have oral hsv1 and do not know it. They don't get cold sores. You may both test together. This will help
will do thanks
