Is it possible to give/receive oral sex if I have genital herpes? I cannot find any info on this....
There are two strains of herpes. Those strains are HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSV-1 is oral herpes 90-95% of the time and genital herpes 5-10% of the time. HSV-2 is genital herpes 90-95% of the time and oral herpes 5-10% of the time. If a person has only "genital HSV-2" the chance of passing genital HSV-2 to a partner orally by oral sex isn't higher than 10% in many cases. HSV-2 is usually spread by vaginal sex.
If the person receiving oral sex has genital HSV-1 (the less common strain of genital herpes) the chance of the genital HSV-1 spreading to a partner orally is high. The chance of passing genital herpes to a partner orally by oral sex may vary depending on a person's immune system and lifestyle.
