HSV 1&2: Most likely HSV1or 2 vaginally. It can be transmitted via oral sex. HSV LESIONS TEND TO BE PAINFUL. See your doctor and get labs checked. Acute flares of HSV RESPOND TO FAMVIR&VALTREX. Most importantly to realize virus may be spread even without visible lesions. You need to have a frank discussion with past & present sex partners. Especially if they test-for HSV1&2.
