    Living w/HSV2 & still have problems cooping...

    I was diagnosed 1yr ago.I have no idea who passed it to me and as far as doctors,they dont know either.Apparently they only screen for that when u ''experiance'' an outbreak.According to them Ive had it for a while where my body became immune to that possible? I told my partner @ the time and he freaked out but insisted he doesnt have it because hes never had an ''outbreak''.I explained to him even though he has never had one it doesnt mean he doesnt have it.We would never use a condom.Could this mean he gave it to me? I had sex w/no protection with 1 guy 2wks prior to me being DX'd and he got screened and it came out negative.Hypothetically speaking,If I dont have an outbreak,how likely is it that I pass it to my partner? I want to have kids one day but Im scared of infecting him.I still feel bad when I have sex and even a little scared that I might give it to him..what should I do?

    so did you have symptoms that led you to being diagnosed or was this a routine herpes blood test screening you had done?

    if the partner you had last had sex with had a type specific herpes igg blood test done and he hadn't had sex with anyone else for at least 2 or 3 months, then you know it didn't come fromhim.

    has your regular partner been tested yet to know his status? If not, that's the next step.
