Can you pass Herpes through oral sex?

say if a female has herpes and preforms oral sex on and un effected partner, is it possible he could be infected?
Of the opposite way. If a male preformes oral on a female.

Re: Can you pass Herpes through oral sex?

If a female has oral herpes and performs oral sex on a man then there is a chance that she can spread the virus to a man. The chances of this happening would be greatest if she had a cold sore on her mouth or if she was experiencing a tingling sensation on her mouth which would mean that she was about to get a cold sore. The same would be the case with a man performing oral sex on a woman when he had oral herpes. Even when there are no visible cold sores on the mouth the virus can spread but the chances of this happening are low.
