1. my partner and i have been in a long term relationship for nearly 10 years. i was his first partner, so he did not have hsv before us getting together. we take precautions and dont kiss or interact orally at all even the moment i have a suspicion i might be getting one, until a week AFTER my scab has already healed totally. What are the chances i have passed hsv one to him? we do unprotected oral and im just wondering how high the risk is when I’m not symptomatic or have 0 sores present.
It depends on how often you get cold sores. How often is that? Do you know that your partner is actually HSV 1 negative by antibody test?
2. i dont have a very long prodrome phase, once i feel the tingle i basically have fluid forming. If i kiss him in he beginninng of the day lets say, and by the evening i start having tingling (annd cease contact from that point) whats the likely hood of passing it during kissing BEFORE i feel tingling within the same day?
There is some risk there for sure. But we cannot and have not quantified that.
3. can cold sores be triggered from food irritating the area? ive had two outbreaks start due to food irritating the side of my lip but people say food doesnt cause outbreaks.
That is certainly not a usual cause of outbreaks, no.
4. similar to 3, i had this happen at a restaurant. i ate my spicy chicken meal and it irritated the side of my lip but i wasnt feeling anything yet. My friend was having an alcoholic drink and asked me to try a sip so i did. and then maybe 15/20 mins after i started feeling tingling (ended up with a small outbreak in the morning). What are the chances i could have passed it to him thru the glass? just wondering since ive seen you say glass isnt a very common transmission spot.
I would agree that sharing a drink would be an unlikely – very unlikely – way to share HSV 1 oral infection.
5. Due to having hs1 since a child, has my asymptomatic viral shedding % gone down significantly? do i have a lesser transmission risk to others during asymptomatic shedding since ive had it for so long? Thanks in adv!
Again, that depends upon how often you get an oral outbreak. Shedding is correlated to the frequency of recurrences.
