Chance of transmission if you have hsv1 oral and partner has hsv1 gential

So I have had shingles, hsv1 oral (on cheek(first time) and on bottom corner of lip). Later on had oral sex with my girlfriend while I had an oral outbreak coming in. She ended up getting one outbreak and none since then. So she has hsv1 genitally and I have hsv1 orally. She takes 500mg of valtrex daily and I take 500 mg of valtrex when I have sex with her which is usually for a couple times a weekend per month because were long distance. We always use condoms and I shower with antibacterial soap after. So my question is under these circumstance could I get HSV 1 genitally since I have it orally and both me and her take valtrex and use a condom? Secondly, she really wants me to stop using condoms so what's my chance of getting hsv1 genitally if at all if I don't use a condom?

The chances of you getting it genitally are low because you already have the antibodies for the virus, although its not impossible. If you didn't have the virus then they would a bit higher, but even then HSV1 has less transmission rates and less outbreaks then HSV2.
