She performed Oral on me. Now has GHSV2 (and OHSV2)

Recommended Posts

I am writing this in utter confusion and disbelief.  I have done my research for many months and it seems everywhere I looked I found the same information on how contracting GHSV2 is typically done: from Genital SKIN to SKIN.

While I was asymptomatic (infected but had no clue), a lady friend of mine decided to give me oral. Prior to this, she had never had cold sores nor herpes. I was the only partner she had in 3 years.

Only from Oral, she developed a sore above her lip about 60 days later. (2 months)   That is when I told her that I had been tested positive. We never had sex so I wasn't in too much of a hurry to disclose. I assume worst case scenario would be that she may have contracted oral HSV2 (super rare 1%)  

Then as her sore above her lip surfaced, the also stated that she also experienced a genital outbreak as well.

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? Can you get GHSV2 from performing oral sex on a H+ male?  I was thinking worst case scenario she would get OHSV2.

I am so shocked with this news. I cant help it I feel so guilty of passing this to her. She has already forgiven me but I am unable to forgive myself. I can't sleep, I can't focus on anything. I can't believe that I ruined someones life unknowingly.

Has anyone else experienced this exact same surprise?  All the data I have seen basically is FALSE.  

YOU CAN GET GENITAL HSV2 BY SIMPLY GIVING SOMEONE A BLOWJOB.  You dont need to have vaginal sex to contract it.

Thats a scary thought. I wanted to share this experience with the community.

I think I have OHSV2. I have never had a culture test done because I don’t get the typical outbreaks. I get a peeling sensation on the mucosal membranes in my mouth. I was also diagnosed with GHSV2.
