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?

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.

Should I get hsv bloodtest if ex bf has herpes and now having swollen/full feeling in groin during periods,sore back,tingles? But no pain or outbreaks

Should I get hsv bloodtest if ex bf has herpes and now having swollen/full feeling in groin during periods,sore back,tingles? But no pain or outbreaks

Probably not: Herpes is not a likely cause of your bf's symptoms. Herpes rarely causes tingling, back pain, or groin symptoms without genital outbreaks: urban myth. If he has other evidence of genital herpes, such as a positive test for HSV2, and if you had sex with him more than once or twice, you should consider testing. But I would not recommend you be tested only on account of symptoms. ...Read more

Not usually: Genital herpes, HSV -2 generally remains localized to the genital area. You could get HSV -1 lesions in the mouth. Primary HSV -2 can also occur in the mouth with oral sex. It may be that the lesions are not herpes at all. It is not feasible to know the nature of the lesions without examining you. You should see a doctor. 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.
