HSV-1 genital to oral herpes transmission ?

Yup - as 2 legit said, it sheds a LOT less genitally than it does orally.... and given that 80% of the population already has it anyway, I wouldn't sweat it... yes, disclose, but explain to them if they have kissed others they have been exposed to it many times over already and at a MUCH higher risk ;)


Shedding rates for HSV1


HSV-1 genital 3-5%

HSV-1 oral 9-18%
