If I Have Hsv 1 Can I Give Hsv 2 Through Oral Sex

I have read a lot on the internet about herpes but there is still one thing I would like to get your advice on. Isn’t it okay to assume that any cold sores we might have are only caused by HSV 1 and thus are unlikely to cause genital herpes through oral sex because of our existing immunity? Isn’t it also ok therefore not to be OVERLY concerned about non-obvious cold sore outbreaks (that may in reality just be blind pimples) and viral shedding as an obstacle to unprotected oral sex? Or am I falling into the trap of thinking My partner and I are not promiscuous and therefore it won’t happen to us? Everything I have read says be careful because HSV 1 can give you genital herpes through oral sex; HSV-1 can also spread from the mouth to the genitals during oral sex (fellatio, cunnilingus, analingus). If this happens, it becomes a case of genital herpes. But just as HSV-1 can infect the genitals and cause genital herpes, HSV-2 can pass from one person’s genitals to another person’s mouth, resulting in oral herpes. MAKE A DONATION. Fact: Cold sores on the mouth or face are caused by HSV-1 and are commonly transmitted to the genitals (causing genital herpes) through oral to genital sex. Myth: If you have genital herpes you can’t have (receive) oral sex.

HSV-1 is commonly found around the mouth, and is often called cold sores. It can be passed to the genitals through oral sex. There is no way of knowing if, or how often, a person will have future outbreaks. A pregnant woman can pass genital herpes to the baby during childbirth. A person with HSV-1 (herpes simplex type 1) can pass it to someone else by: Kissing. If someone has a cold sore and performs oral sex, this can spread HSV-1 to the genitals and cause herpes sores on the genitals. Can genital herpes cause problems during pregnancy? You can get genital herpes through genital-genital contact or genital-oral contact with someone who has herpes infection. Even if you don’t have symptoms, you can still pass the virus to others.

Herpes Simplex Virus

Someone with HSV-1 can transmit the virus through oral contact with another person’s genitals, anus, or mouth, even if they don’t have sores that are visible at the time. The viruses are called herpes simplex type 1 and herpes simplex type 2. You can get herpes by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the disease. When the sores come into contact with the mouth, vagina, or rectum during sex, they increase the risk of giving or getting HIV if you or your partner has HIV. Herpes can also be transmitted when there are no symptoms present. Because most adults have oral herpes, we do not advise that a person stop giving or receiving affection altogether between outbreaks (when there are no signs or symptoms) simply because they have oral herpes. By performing oral sex on someone who has genital herpes, it would be possible to contract oral herpes but this is rare. Also, and even more importantly, most adults already have oral HSV-1, contracted as a child through kissing relatives or friends.

HSV causes cold sores or fever blisters (oral herpes) , and it also causes genital sores (genital herpes).

In addition, we looked at the way our society views oral and genital herpes. For example, most people infected with HSV-1 in the genital area have few, if any, outbreaks after the initial episode, far fewer than is typical with either oral HSV-1 or genital HSV-2. A prior genital infection with HSV-1, for example, may give more protection against genital HSV-2 than a prior oral infection with HSV-1. In other words, genital HSV-1 can be spread through genital sex, even when there are no symptoms. If you have questions about oral herpes please speak to one of our counsellors.
