did i pass hsv-1 genital?

my gf and i have been together for a while now and she says that she has never had a cold sore, and about a month ago i did, and she said she didnt have a problem kissing me, so we did, while i had the cold sore. now here it is about a month later and i somehow have recieved another cold sore, she said she didnt mind kissing it, so we have been kissing for 2 days straight, but yesterday, she wanted me to perform oral sex on her, and i said not until my cold sore goes away, but she said it didnt matter. me not having much knowledge on this, i went ahead and did it. i tried to avoid touching my lips on her vagina, but im not sure if i did or not. later on, in the same day, about 6 hours later, she said she was having really bad headaches and she says that she has been feeling pretty sick. is this because of the HSV-1 genital, or what? i read somewhere that if someone has oral HSV-1, chances are that they cannot get genital HSV-1, but im not sure if it is 100% true. someone please help. i dont want to be freaking out about nothing or if there is something, i need to say something to her. im not sure yet on any of this, so some help, with FACTS would be really nice. thanks.

i got off with this guy and apparently he gave me hsv-1 ... i didnt know about it until my current bf performed oral sex on me and it got swarmed with them.

that is the guy i got off with gave me the virus...i passed it on to my current bf and when he gave me oral sex it manifested itself there.

however the effects manifest themselves after 2 wks not hours after

performing oral sex with an active cold sore is never a good thing :(

At this point ,not much you can do. If she develops an obvious cold sore or an obvious genital sore, she should see her provider promptly for diagnosis and treatment to help speed healing.

so are the chances 100% that she contracted genital hsv-1? or is there a small chance that it wasnt trasmitted?

it's high risk that you transmitted hsv1 to her genitally if she didn't already have have hsv1.

She can call her provider to ask for a herpes igg blood test this week to see what her baseline status is.

wait, if she already had hsv-1 oral the chances of her getting hsv-1 genital are lower?
