So many questions....

Recommended Posts

Hi I've just been diagnosed with HSV-1. I contracted it thru oral sex with a partner who had no symptoms. I think he may have had a cold sore and then he performed oral sex on me and that's why I now have genital hsv-1. We still want to be together. My episode was mild and has cleared. If he only has oral hsv-1 can I now give him genital hsv-1?? I'm confused by it all.

Also, if he has no visible syptoms (whcih he doesn't) should he have a blood test done? I imagine he should.

If he does in fact have oral hsv-1 with no syptoms does that mean I can contract oral herpes by kissing him?

Sorry for all the questions but trying to figure out how to move on responsibly?

yes your bf should be tested. yes i do beleive you can get hsv1 by kissing him sense it in another area, ( i could be wrong but dont think so) you could not get hs1 1 in gentical area sense you already have it there.

Sue,

The following article helped me a lot to understand it all, it's honestly the best article I've found. I believe I too contracted genital hsv1 from a boyfriend who gave me oral sex and didn't have a cold sore at the time, but gets them every once in a while. I was in my early twenties and didn't know that you could get genital HSV 1. I also have oral HSV 1 and I attributed that to my mother who always had cold sores when we were growing up, but I don't get cold sores, though every once in a while I will get "ulcers" inside my mouth, which I thought was from too much acid from oranges or tomatoes. Anyhow, my blood test has shown HSV-1 positive. Here is the article http://www.herpes.com/hsv1-2.html I think it will help!
