HSV I on Genitals?

I have HSV I & II, my boyfriend was only tested for II and is clear. I haven't had a culture so I don't know if I have HSV I genitally. If I don't get cold sores, am I risking transmittal to him orally and genitally?

statistically your hsv1 is oral and your hsv2 is genital. most folks who have hsv1 orally, don't get obvious cold sores to know it.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
