Hsv 1 is very common, and she may very likely have it as well. Although many people who have it never experience any symptoms. Maybe ask her to get checked?

Its really not a huge deal. Every time any person makes out with anyone they risk contracting oral herpes, yet that doesn't stop people.

If she cares about you hopefully she can look past it.

But wait, to clarify, do you have it orally or genitally?

You are lucky, hsv1 is less potent

Read up on the virus as much as you can. You will see that this for the most part is a harmless little virus. And you can take precautions and meds to help limit the risk of exposure to your girlfriend.

Hsv1 is less potent than 2. You will get fewer outbreaks than someone with 2 and they will lass less longer.

Good luck!

The statistics are that 80-90% of the population have HSV1 either orally or genitally. If they already have HSV1 orally, they can't get it genitally because of the antibodies they have in their bodies. Therefore, if you meet someone, ask them to get tested if they don't already know if they have HSV1 or not. Ask them if they get cold sores. If they do, they have HSV1.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation. According to them:     Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL?
