Genital HSV-1 and Oral HSV-1

Recommended Posts

Question:  I contracted oral and genital HSV-1 two years ago from someone who went down on me.  As far as dating/disclosing now, if I know my partner gets oral cold sores (HSV-1), do I need to disclose that I have had an outbreak of genital HSV-1 two years ago?  My gyno said since he has the virus already, he has antibodies and shouldn’t be an issue, we share same virus, but I just want advice from the true herpe experts in this forum.  Still makes me nervous/feel guilty not disclosing (but Ive had terrible luck with disclosing so far)... so if it’s something I don’t need to disclose I would rather not.  Thanks!
