I'm really scared now, and I want to get tested. Any thoughts?
I think your chances are zilch, but that's just me and i'll tell you why my GF didn't know she had genital herpes and didn't even know she was havng a breakout. I went down on her on both Friday and Sunday for a very long time and by tuesday she was dignosed by her outbreak and then a blood test. Did i end up with Herpes in my mouth or HSV1 ? NOPE !
Did i end up with HSV2 from having sex ? yep. my opinion is there is so much bacteria in the mouth, that something small like a fork, that bacteria is gonna kill it. Maybe i lucked out cause when i used my mouthwash it hurt like hell, but to the best of my knowledge i do not have HSV1. SO if i was you i wouldn't worry... Maybe an Expert like B.P. who's had a postive impact on my condition and my state of mind (major hugs to you backpacker, thanks a bunch and you too Orn) might know more about your chances than me.
