I received oral sex from a guy about 5 days ago. After we had finished up I noticed a discolouration on his lip. I asked him if he gets cold sores and he relied that he did, but he was on medication for 4 days and his Dr. has given him a clean bill of health and he is no longer infectious.
I have read articles claiming this statement to be both true and false.
Does anyone have any definitive information regarding this and what the likelihood is that I contracted genital herpes from this guy?
This guys swears he is not contagious and his previous partner of 19 years never contracted herpes from him.
I have a odd sensation in my penis that is neither burning or tingling nor do I have any blisters or any other symptoms.

HSV 1 orally can be transmitted from and active cold sore and or through shedding. I would refer you to my signature line to read about this in the Herpes Handbook to learn more.
