Question regarding GHSV1 and oral sex...

Recommended Posts


My girlfriend and I both have HSV1 in our genital regions... I was wondering how safe it is to perform oral sex on one another (when neither of us have active outbreaks)... Is there a strong chance that we’d spread the virus to our mouth areas?

If you have both had this for 6 months to a year, you will have developed the antibodies to HELP prevent you from getting it orally but the possibility exists, it's slight, but possible. Of course if you do, you know not to do it during an outbreak or prodromal symptoms or when you're feeling under the weather with a cold or flu.

Having it in one location provides a considerable amount of protection from being infected elsewhere if it's not a new infection.

      I do belive. It is going to be SADBE and Sqarex. I am on it and it is great.

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????
