I was wondering, can you get H-2 from kissing?? And can you give it to someone from giving them oral?? Thanks!

Its a good question, id also like to know the answer.
Its a funny thing in that a lot of the posts that ive read here dont really apply to my situation, but nevertheless the acumulation of knowlegde of herpes, some how, makes dealing with this whole thing a lot easier.
hopefully youll get an answer to your question and ill get an answer to mine which is further down on the forum list.

You are VERY unlikely to contract hsv2 orally from kissing. To greatly simplify it - hsv2 doesn't "like" the oral area. It infects there but not often. Only about 3% of all oral herpes infections are due to hsv2. Of those who do have hsv2 orally - it doesn't reoccur very often and only sheds about 1% of days. So even if you are unlucky enough to contract hsv2 orally - it isn't likely to be transmitted to a partner.

hi betsy,
im a little confused by your reply. Dose that mean that if a woman has hsv2 in the genital area, and her partner proforms oral sex on her, is he unlikly to get infected because hsv2 dosnt like hte oral area (i.e. the area of the mouth ) ??
