Type 1 genital transmission

Recommended Posts

Hi I have type 1 herpes on my genitals that I received from Oral sex. I am talking to this new guy and I was wondering if he gives me oral sex will he get it on his lips? Has anyone that has type 1 on their genitals passed it to their partner through oral sex? I am also taking antivirals as well.

It is possible, yes, but you want to put this risk in perspective. Most adults have HSV1. On average, oral HSV1 infections shed 3x as often genital infections of HSV1. So while you can transmit HSV1 from your genitals, you are less likely to transmit it than someone who has it orally.
