My partner and I both have HSV-2(genital herpes).
If she performs oral sex on me, or I perform it on her, will we then contract oral herpes? If we kiss afterwards will we contract oral herpes from the other person who performed oral sex.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern.

Transmission risk orally is increased in oral sex. and subsequently can be transmitted orally too via kissing. I would advise a condom if you have to do oral sex.

Let me know if you have any query

wishing you best of health
