No: Hsv-1 is oral herpes and hsv-2 is genital herpes. It is possible to have hsv-1 in the genital area and vice versa. Hsv1 infections in the genital area are usually milder than hsv2 infections. Without viral culture, HSV 1 cannot be differentiated from HSV 2 based on exam alone. Therefore, if you are concerned about an outbreak, see your doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Possibly: If you get a genital lesion yes. If not, no. Be careful. Avoid kissing and any type of contact when you have an out rake!

Low probability: You already have immunity to hsv-1, this it will not reemerge on the vulva. You can still be susceptible to hsv-2 however. Good luck.
