Can I get genital herpes from giving oral sex to a man? Could I have passed it on to my current partner who I have unprotected sex w and I got it?

Yes. You could pick up HSV from giving oral sex to a man with an open lesion. The HSV would be on your lip so you would eventually get a fever blister. Then if you had an open lesion on your lip you could give it to your current partner. You also could transfer the virus from your hands that touched the man with active HSV to your own genitals - it takes open skin to open skin for transmission. Read more...

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?

A Short Short Answer. A simple question with a potentially VERY complex answer.The short short short answer is Yes...possibly. You see it depends on the virus you have,he has,and the immunity you have developed overall.But even with immunity you can get either, just less probably.Next,you can get it without lesions because the virus can be hanging out there for several days before an outbreak.That's the basics.

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.
