I have hsv 1 genital and my boyfriend has hsv 1 oral (fever blistets). What is the transmission rate? Would i need to get antivirals? Ive read online that genital to gental hsv 1 is extremely rare and almost unheard of is that true? Is my boyfriend somewhat immune since he already has hsv 1 orally because his body already has the antibodies?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Are u there?

Yes, I just saw your reply.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Well, HSV1 is very common for cold sore, but it can infect the genital area as well. Since you both are infection with HSV 1, you both have the immunity against this virus. Therefore, infecting each other or infection other parts of body is a very rare occurrence and is not common.

Please let me know if you have any follow-up question for me.

is this something i should share with my partner if its rare? Or do i need to tell him?

Also would i need to take any antivirals if we both have the strand hsv 1?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I just want to clarify. If i have genital hsv 1 and he has oral hsv 1, its rare and uncommon that i could give him genital hsv 1 is that correct?

HSV 1 outbreaks are less frequent and most people does not need any specific treatment as long as they are healthy and have good immunity.

Yes, it's rare and is not going to happen most likely.

do i need to disclose this to my partner?

It's your decision, he would know if you get outbreaks. So better to discuss it now.

How do i explain this to my partner?

You can tell him that you got this infection, but it's not going to harm/infect him anyway or put him at risk since he already has oral herpes.

I hope it's helpful.

Can i ask you one more thing?

Sure. If it's related, I am happy to assist.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
If i didnt already have hsv 1 i would have gotten it eventually from him right? Since oral hsv 1 is more contagious?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
if he has had fever blisters he does have hsv 1 right?

Yes, if he has fever blisters, most likely he has HSV1 since HSV2 does not prefer oral area. Any you may have ultimately gotten it through oral sex only if you had no HSV1 prior to the activity.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
