Chances Of Getting Genital Herpes From Oral Herpes
Whatre the chances are of me giving my boyfriend genital herpes HSV 1 from saliva, and my lips not touching his genitals. My cold sore was almost gone?
Hard to say: It's impossible to say what the statistical chances are of transmitting herpes with a single encounter. If you've recently had a cold sore, of course the chances are higher. But the virus can be shed even when no sore is present.

A blood test will tell you if you have both or just 1. ...Read more

No risk: People are resistant to new infections with the same HSV type they already have. You will not catch a new HSV1 infection anywhere on your body, especially with the same virus strain already infecting your mouth. Also, HSV is not transmitted by such brief contact with saliva; the virus must be massaged into tissues. So no worries! Of course you could still catch HSV2 if sexually exposed to it. ...Read more

Thus you should avoid oral sex with anyone with a sore on his or her mouth. Hsv is extremely contagious even in the absence of symptoms or visible lesions. Thus beware! ...Read more
No: All forms of herpes are caused by a virus that lies latent in the body until it decides to cause external lesions. Once you have the virus it remains in the body and the strength of your immune system plays a role in whether you will exhibit lesions or not.

Autoinoculation: I think you're asking if your own herpes could be transmitted by your partner's penis to your mouth. There is no risk at all. Infection of a new body part with HSV is called autoinoculation. It is very rare once herpes has been present more than a few months; the immune system prevents it. You probably couldn't infect your own mouth even if you tried. No worries! ...Read more
