Yes many many people have been in a commited releationsip and after 10; 20 or 30 years suddenly get an ob. Did you go and see your Doc to confirm it is herpes? If it is did they tell you if it was HSV 1 or HSV 2 geniially?

If not the next time you get an ob go and get a swab done to confirm which type it is so you will know.

If you need to get a swab/culture/typing to confirm which type it is the best time to get that done is with in 48 hours of when you first notice the ob. That way you get the best results.
