I understand its probably positive, turns my mom just found out she HSV-1 positive a couple years ago (she’s asymptomatic and never took any medicine) but my dad is negative, which is interesting because they been married for 25 years LOL.
I dont recall having a cold sore and my parents said they dont either, my dad is doctor, so he knows I could have been exposed as a kid from my mom and just never had symptoms just like her.
all that being said im 90% sure it is oral. BUT yes i have received oral sex before so i can’t be 100% without a breakout. You mentioned telling partners before oral sex, But since it possibly could be genital do i mention before intercourse? Even it’s protected sex (i almost always use condoms anyway)
