Re: Can you have both Genital Herpes 1 & 2?
I have Oral herpes and have only had 3 in my entire life. Having said that I have read that if someone has previously had oral herpes or genital that it is unusual for them to get the other. Meaning basically that if you have oral herpes ur body has already built up antibodies against it and that it would be unusual for you to have sex with someone who has genital herpes and in turn get that virus too. Here is the link below, at least that is the way I took the comment. Also I would like to add that to all the people who talk about how disgusting oral herpes is (not saying anyone here does) they are basically saying that the majority of babies are disgusting too because the majority of them have it and had no control over it. Just my opinion.
"It is unusual for a person with one type of the herpes simplex virus to contract the other type."
