Brief Answer:
HSV2 is rarely transmitted from oral sex.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

You should know that HSV2 is rarely transmitted from oral sex (in mouth from genitals and from mouth to genitals), but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
Usually people with compromised immune systems in particular may be at risk.


I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.
