Oral & Genital Herpes

My girlfriend was just diagnosed with genital herpes and it was given to her from me orally. I have been tested and so far nothing points to me having genital herpes but I have 2 questions.

1) I read online that I am less likely to contract genital herpes from her because I have anti bodies to fight off the infection?

2) Since I have ger genital herpes, If I preform oral sex on her, is there anything I need to worry about since I already have the virus and gave it to her?

Please help! Thanks

Re: Oral & Genital Herpes

Even if you have anti bodies for oral herpes you can still get in genitally. That is why they say if you have a cold sore on your mouth make sure you wash your hands after touching the sore because you could spread it to your eyes or other parts of your skin. Since you already have it oral herpes giving her oral sex won't worsen you oral outbreaks. Hope this helps.
