Patient : I am a woman and I have been diagnosed with genital herpes and now that I think I may have had it for a while but just not severe. I used to sleep with men and now I sleep with women and I was wondering that since it appears to be a blood born disease and if I am giving oral sex or recieving oral is it still transmitted. Also, is transmitted when there is no outbreak. I have heard different stories. If you could clear this up for me that would be very helpful and informative.
