"Question that i need an answer to!!"
 
   Ok. So yesterday my results came in pos. I have genital herpes during my wait time I've been researching and educating myself...thank goodness for these forums!! So here's my question...being diagnosed with this does it mean a guy can't go down on me ever again? Or how does that work?

   The first thing you need to find out is if you have HSV1 or HSV2.

It's considered extremely rare to pass on HSV2 genital to oral via oral sex. None of us take special precautions when receiving oral sex........beyond the obvious of avoiding sex during an outbreak. For whatever reason, HSV2 doesn't thrive in the oral area and even if someone does get an outbreak it's unusual for it to recur.

It's also not common to pass HSV1 from genital to oral. If it does happen people aren't as disturbed since it's just a cold sore....makes a huge difference mentally for some people if it's genital. GHSV1 sheds less and causes fewer outbreaks than HSV2, so that fact alone makes it less likely to pass on the virus. Since it's fairly easily acquired with oral contact and many people get it as children, you're more likely to encounter a person who has antibodies (because they already have the virus).

For HSV2, if you're taking antivirals and using condoms there is a 1% chance of passing this to a partner. There are statistics for HSV1, but the assumption is that would be less than 1%.
