Very brief oral sex w/ cold sore then genital sex

Recommended Posts


Hey, I wanted some opinions. I had very, very brief oral sex with my bf. It was probably less than 5 seconds because I realized I had a fever blister and I should not do that and then since that couldn't continue we went on to have genitial sex. So my worry is the likelihood of it turning to genitial herpes for the both of us or either. He does not have Herpes type 1, at least not that we are currently aware of. Been with him almost 4 years and never experienced him have an oral outbreak, while I have had many. So I'm just a little concerned because I would prefer that neither of us break out in that sacred area.

You cannot practically become infected genitally given an established oral infection. The chances of you infecting him are very small, maybe 1% each year of sex to his genitals.

If it happens though, there is nothing about the genital area that is less sacred than other body parts or is it less sacred simply because HSV causes an outbreak now and again.

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
