Can I give oral sex with herpes HSV-2?

Recommended Posts

My doctor told me that I can most definitely give oral sex during a genital outbreak. It's transmitted by skin to skin contact, and if the outbreak is in the genital region, it's not going to be transmitted from your mouth. Oral to genital transmission is most likely in the case of having oral herpes, and the virus shedding when you give oral sex to someone. (I personally don't know if I have oral herpes, never having had a cold sore and not being tested for it. HSV1 orally is very common, but not everyone knows for certain that they have it.)

What if you have HSV 1 and HSV 2 and Can I still give and receive oral ??? I have both and my new girlfriend wants to perform oral on me and me on her way are the chances of me spreading it to her? I had it for 6 months but never had a outbreak or sore anything of that nature. Please help me find the answer anyone.
