Can I trigger someones OB if they have HSV1 already?

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

Sooo this might be a silly question but I need clarity! I was diagnosed with GHSV1 in August. Minor OB and thankfully I have not had another or any signs or symptoms since. I recently started dating someone who has OHSV1 (a long history of it) and I was wondering...if they perform oral on me, can that trigger an OB? Im not having an OB and its unlikely I will have one this weekend (when we see each other) but if they already have the virus too, can they get an OB from that?

Also, do we know what the chances are of transmission via sex if they already have a long history of HSV1 in their system? With a condom? Without? I don't plan on ever taking antivirals unless it ever turns into a persistent issue!

Thanks in advance!!!

No question is silly on here!

You can not trigger OB's either way, once you have HSV1 you have it, so you can not re-contaminate someone who already has it, genitally or orally.

Same goes for transmitting via sex if the person already has HSV1.

Good luck & have fun 😉
