I was diagnosed with GHSV2 via swab test in March 2018. I’ve since only had one additional outbreak 2 weeks ago which has cleared up.
I was in a relationship with another HSV2 positive female during 2018. We had unprotected sex and performed oral on each other.
That relationship has since ended.
I am seeing a new person and have not yet disclosed my status. Yesterday I performed oral sex on her but did not have sex at all. I have no current GHSV2 symptoms and have not had anything resembling a cold sore orally ever (that I can remember).
What are her chances of contracting GHSV2 from me via that single occasion of me performing oral on her?
Please note i was well over 4 months into my GHSV2 diagnosis before meeting my GHSV2 partner in 2018 – I did not pick up the inflection from her.
If you only have genital HSV 2, giving oral sex to someone presents zero risk of transmission.
Thanks Terri – is it possible to test to see if I also have oral HSV2 as well as genital?
No. The only way to know would be if you had a lesion orally and had it swab tested. HSV 2 oral infection is quite uncommon indeed.
