I thought the most common way someone contracts hpv 1 or 2

Customer Question

i thought the most common way someone contracts hpv 1 or 2 known as herpes is from skin on skin contact and that your always shedding the virus and it's especially easy to give to a man from a woman through oral sex in addition to regular intercourse even if a condom is used. i read that a man can have symptoms as early as 2 days after coming in contact with someone with hpv and early symptoms consist of soreness of the lower back, waist and legs. is this true?

Oral sex almost never transmits Herpes. The chances are 1/2500, especially since you were wearing a condom. When one partner has active lesions (blisters) it is possible but almost never, especially when a condom is used. I am here to answer any additional questions. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars, this is how I am credited for my response.

how does oral sex never transmits herpes? that is how i got it , the guy who gave it to me had the blisters all over his mouth and i never knew about any stds so i didn't know thats what it was. the guy gave me oral. thats why i can't ever let my boyfriend lick me down there for fear that he will defenitely get it from me. even on google and the local pharmacist said the easiest way for a man to get herpes from a woman are through oral sex and skin on skin contact. and your telling me thats not possible? maybe i have to have open sores while I'm giving oral sex like the guy who gave it to me did? if there is a break in either person's skin that could transmit it too? i'm losing my mind worrying about going near anyone.
