In brief: Herpes

Herpes can be transmitted even if you dont have lesion.
Most of herpes is transmitted like this. One in 4 adults in usa harbor genital herpes. If you have more than 4 outbreaks a year you need supression therapy , and this may decrease the chance of transmitting the disease when you have unprotected sex.

In brief: Still at risk

Still a risk of spreading herpes virus from penis to mouth or by intercourse.
Please use protection. Any partner who might have passed the virus to you should also be tested. You and and the partner who might have passed it you could still reinfect each other even if both were treated.
