My girlfriend had a cold sore about 5 months ago, she performed oral yesterday, and she's done it before, am I going to get genital herpes?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

One can only get herpes when the partner has active herpetic lesions at the time of oral sex.
Cold sores are herpes but a different strain from genital herpes. If she had no active lesions you should be safe
