Herpes and oral sex risks


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have a question that I'm sure has been asked many times before on this forum but here goes. I have HVS2, can I pass it to someone via oral sex? Can they then get HVS2 and give it to someone else or is that impossible? I mean while I am not having an OB not while I am (obviously).  I have heard this is possible but I don't know. 

I talked to a few different doctors about this and received some mixed messages so I thought I would try here and see what people thought.

Any help is much appreciated. 


Ps. I'm male if that makes a difference. 


Many thanks!

Great question! Yes, it’s possible since 1-2% of all oral herpes cases are HSV-2. (And there have actually been stories on these forums of people getting throat herpes, but overall that’s pretty rare.)

Here’s an article for you to read to get you all knowledgeable: https://herpeslife.com/spreading-genital-herpes-hsv2-from-oral-sex/
