If a woman wants to perform oral sex on me

Patient: If a woman wants to perform oral sex on me [a woman] and she has herpes not in her mouth can i get it?

 

 

Symptoms: None

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.As she is not having active lesions in mouth the possibilit y of transmission of infection is less.But if the infection is in incubation period the possibility of transmission cannot be completely ruled out and better to avoid oral sex till she completes treatment for herpes.Take care
