A cold Sore is caused by HSV1 which IS a ST virus. I know because I got it the same way you did. Children can often catch the HSV1 virus at school, putting things in their mouth, or from their mom at birth, getting kisses from infected people.
If it's been two months and you havn't had an outbreak, then you may be ok. You know, I relly am wishing we had better sexual education of this stuff as teens, because the uptight, hush hush, taboo society we have just fuels the spead of this stuff. Parents that shreik about condoms and thouroug sex-ed in high-school need to be educated. They are ignorant, as I once was, since I was a product of their educational society.

: A cold sore is NOT an std. Everyone..or atleast the majority of people, Will get a cold sore at some time in their lives with NO sexual contact at all. I've been getting them since i was very young. There are 2 strains of herpies, oral and genital. While herpies can be passed back and forth (you can get it in your mouth if you give oral sex to someone who has genital herpies). Chances are if she did have a cold sore it's nothing to worry about. It is NOT an std.
