Hello Terri (i have purchased follow-up questions)
Based on the information above,
1) Hypothetically speaking then, if I purposely came into oral contact with an active hsv 2 infection I could contract oral hsv 2 and thereby vaccinate myself against getting genital hsv 2? This would then eliminate the chance of transmission to my child during vaginal delivery as there would be no concern with a genital outbreak and would also eliminate the chance of me giving hsv 2 to a future partner during genital sex?
2) is oral hsv 2 more easily transmitted to the genitals than oral hsv 1 as oral hsv 2 prefers the genital area?
