Oral sex + GHSV1

Recommended Posts

Coco2

I keep on reading different things so I'm wondering if someone can help me from their personal experiences.

Has anyone transferred an outbreak of GHSV1 to orally through oral sex ?!

My boyfriend and I are very frustrated considering we both love oral sex very much so !

That hasn't happened to me. I guess it's possible but hsv-1 doesn't shed very often if genital so the risk would be lower to the other person getting it than if say it was an oral infection and you were giving oral sex.

I got genital herpes through someone giving me oral sex when they had hsv-1. They weren't showing any signs of a cold sore until the next day. My doctor said that I got it because the virus was shedding even though he wasn't showing symptoms yet. My advice would be to abstain from oral sex.

Wait I didn't understand the question, sorry.

But in response to your real question. I distinctly remember my doctor saying you can transfer them from oral to genitals and vice versa.

Yeah I've heard that there is a good possibility that I couldn't, but then I hear that you could from shedding, etc.

I guess I should ask has anyone experienced transferring it from genital to oral.

yes you can transsfer oral to genital its common, but if you 2 like each other, and you both have oral already,a=if you ever did get it in the genital area it wouldnt be that bad since it doesnt prefer that region..,me personally would risk it,, i like oral too much to go without, to be on the safe side make sure you wash you mouth area with a wash cloth first.. to get any shedding skin off , i think the risks are fairliy low, but it could happen

I also got GH from oral sex. Please whatever you do, DO NOT have oral while you have or think you have an outbreak. When you don't have an outbreak go for it!

      I to have one outbreak after another. Never been tested but I know I have it . I would love advice on how to help with lesions on my labia.  Those hurt the worst and last the longest .  I have found if I take a pin and pop the ones on the regular skin and cover them with coconut oil salt scrub ,it drys them up and almost gone immediately and dont spread near as bad .  As I said I have lesions now and I cant seem to make them better . They hurt so bad .   I am new to this and have no idea how I got it. Been with the same person for years .

      I jus recently found out I have hsv. The first test came back negative they said it was jock itch but I had another lil spot pop up in the crease of my leg an that came back positive. I was so broken at that moment. That someone couldn’t have told me so we could have took actions to prevent me from getting it. I understand well all have it but some people’s is active an some people’s aren’t. I have some questions tho. Ever since I have been diagnosed I have been getting these lil spots poppin up on my legs knuckles an other places that itch tremendously bad idk if it’s bc I’m overly paranoid bc I’ve found out I have this or if there is something else wrong w me   I’m embarrassed to go to the doc about it this has really put me into a deep depression an I found this site hoping to get answers an support on how to deal with this I was praying that maybe this was all a bad dream but unfortunately I was wrong. Please help

      Same thing happened to me not long after having unprotected sex.  I have not tested positive for HSV, but I experience what you are in that area

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.
