hsv1 and hsv2 are 2 different viruses. hsv1 can never turn into hsv2 and vice versa.

can you still get hsv2 genitally even though you have hsv1 orally? yes you can.

you also can transmit your hsv1 infection to a partner's genital area through performing oral sex on them. http://www.ashastd.org/herpes/herpes_le ... herpes.cfm is the oral herpes info on asha that goes into more details for more reading.
