My partner and I have oral HSV 1. What is the probability one could get genital HSV 1 if we refrain from oral contact during an outbreak?
Please help! what happens if you are tested positive for herpes simplex 1.. Will you ever get outbreaks in your genitals?
Possibly: It's possible to get an outbreak of hsv-1 on your genital region if you contracted hsv-1 at the genital region.

If my blood test and culture came back positive for hsv1 on my genital area does that make it the same as having genital2 herpes? can hsv1 turn into hsv2? can i give a new partner herpes simplex 1 without having an outbreak present?
No. No. Yes.: Herpes 1 cannot turn into 2, nor vice versa. A person is not immune to herpes 1 unless he has caught herpes 1, and likewise, he is not immune to herpes 2 unless he has caught herpes 2. That means having herpes 1 does not protect you against herpes 2, and vice versa. That also means having herpes 1 on one part of the body should prevent you from getting new herpes 1 on a different part of the body. ...Read more
