If she performs fellatio upon you, yes, you are at risk. Will my partner catch it again if he or she already has it? Can I pass the virus to a partner if I have no symptoms? Do I need treatment for the first infection? The only difference is that type 1 is more likely to reappear when it is caught on the face and is less likely to recur when it is caught on the genitals; type 2 is more likely to recur when affecting the genitals.

I think of it the same as a cold sore: a person who has that virus in their body might get a cold sore every now and then, maybe when they are stressed a couple of times a year, so when they have a cold sore they wouldn’t kiss everyone and spread it around. I caught herpes genitally and orally from my second boyfriend when I was 20. Cold sores around your mouth are caused by the herpes virus and can be a right pain. Kiss me baby, I’m cold sore free.
