I have a question regarding oral herpes


Q: So, I was a child when I transmitted oral herpes. I didn't know I had it until my partner started breaking out after I had given him oral. I never thought anything of it. I thought I had a canker sore..but the thing is I have preformed oral before and other partners had never gotten it. Is it just a game that it's a shot or miss? Can you preform oral and not give it to someone? Or is it a definite every single time. I'm sorry I'm confused. Every website says something different.
