Q: Worried about risk of having received oral sex from genitally infected partner

Hello,

 

   I recently learned that a woman who performed oral sex on me about six weeks ago has genital (but not oral) herpes. She had no outbreak when we were together, and does not have oral herpes. Is there any chance that I could have contracted herpes from her?

   Thank you
