I have genital HSV 1 and to my knowledge not oral HSV 1 and to date have only had one genital initial outbreak about 6 months ago. I take valtrex daily 500 mg. I am in a new relationship and we are participating in mutual oral sex but not genital sex. I did inform him that I have HSV 1. My question is, is there a risk of passing on genital HSV 1 via oral sex?? Can he get my genital infection by performing oral sex on me and then can I in turn give it to him?? I can't seem to find any information on this. Of course when we start having genital sex, we will use protection.
