Can you get oral herpes from someone who u don't kiss but she gives u head but doesn't have any open sores or cold sores and I had no cuts on my d?
Possible but unlikel: Hi Roy. It's possible for someone to shed the herpes virus and be asymptomatic. People with oral herpes may secrete the virus 2% to 9% of the time when they are not having sores. That being said, if they are asymptomatic and secreting the virus, the amount of virus being shed is much less. You can be tested for infection. I would recommend knowing your sex partner And both of you testing for STD ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If me and my partner both have genital herpes and I perform oral sex on him, can I get oral herpes if he's not having an outbreak?
RELAX: If you have been together for awhile don't worry about it. If you both have genital herpes you both are likely to have hsv2. Since you already have it you cannot catch it. Herpes viruses can be found shedding on the skin when there are no symptoms. Not just near the time of an outbreak. True for hsv1 and hsv2. Most people already have hsv1. A blood test will tell you if you have both or just 1. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My cold sore has healed and no visible wound from virus. Am I able to kiss my girlfriend or receive or perform oral sex. I never had virus on genitals?
HSV is still there: The problem with herpes - in this case HSV-1 - is that it is still present, and may be infective to someone who doesn't yet have the virus. In other words, you don't have to have the 'active volcano' of a herpes outbreak, as the virus can pass through what's called 'asymptomatic shedding'. The virus is capable of infecting through mucous membranes (lips, genitals, even the eye) or scratched skin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It all depends...: It is all up to your immune system. Many people get to resist the virus and don't get infected even when they came in contact with it, others carry the virus with no symptoms for a long time( even years), and others can develop symptoms few days later after contact( 3-6 days). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If a partner already has HSV1 and I perform oral sex on him at the "tingle" stage before a cold sore, how likely that he could get Genital Herpes?
Unclear question: If you have oral herpes and it is HSV 1, and your partner already has HSV 1, then you will not transmit the infection with or without the sore. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
How likely is it to get herpes if I have an early coldsore and my partner kissed me lightly then gave me oral?
No risk for you: The only risk here is for your partner to catch oral herpes, if he was not previously infected with HSV1. People with HSV are immune (or at least highly resistant) to new infections with the type they already have. Therefore, your oral herpes (probably HSV1) will never be transmitted to your own genital area, either on your own fingers or hands or by your partner's mouth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If my BF has hsv2 and I give him fellatio. Will I contract hsv1?? Or I will never get hsv2 since it's not genital intercourse in this example? Thanks
Yes: The 1 and 2 refer to the virus type, not the area that's affected. If your BF has hsv2 then you are at risk for contracting it. You can reduce the risk if he uses a latex or polyurethane condom. The same is true for vaginal sex. There is a chance you will be infected even though a condom is used. ...Read more
