What, exactly, are you asking.

If you use a condom and it is used accurately and does not break or tear, you are protected against HIV whether you have herpes or not.

If you have herpes on your genitals, performing oral sex on your partner will not transmit the virus to them; however, if they perform unprotected oral sex on you, there is a risk to them.
