Question about HSV1 vs. HSV2

Recommended Posts

Bettyb

If your partner has HSV1 and performs oral on you do you get 1 on your genitals or is it considered HSV2? I don't mean to sound dumb, but this is just confusing the heck out of me. :confused:

Hi Bettyb,

Yes, if he has type one orally you would have type 1 genitally. If you check out the link on the right in the 'Fact Sheets' section and click on 'Herpes Simplex Type' you will get a better understanding.

Feel free to ask questions anytime.
