I have been married for 17 years but together for 23years I notice a small blister on my penis.Went to the doctors and was told it was a genital herpes. My question is can they lay dormant for years in your body for years I had a lot of stress lately. My wife got tested no Antibodies. So I got tested and have antibodies would that mean its been in me for along time. I know I have never cheated on my wife but I was with other women before my wife
