I'M A 44 YR OLD MOTHER WHO HAS BEEN MARRIED FOR ALMOST EIGHT YRS. MY HUSBAND IS CURRENTLY LOCKED UP AND I HAVEN'T BEEN WITH ANYBODY FOR 9 YRS. ABOUT A YEAR AGO, I FOUND OUT THAT I HAD HSV2 AND DON'T KNOW WHO GAVE IT TO ME. AT FIRST I STARTED NOTICING THAT I HAD MOUTH SORES AND THEN IT LED TO GENITAL SORES. I'M NOT A FAN OF KISSING PEOPLE BUT SOME GUYS WENT DOWN ON ME, COULD IT BE THAT I CONTRACTED THE VIRUS FROM THAT. MY HUSBAND THINKS THAT I'VE BEEN UNFAITHFUL. COULD SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW I GOT THIS VIRUS. IF WE DECIDE TO HAVE SEX UNPROTECTED, COULD HE BE AT RISK? WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE SEX? I NEED TO KNOW IS THERE A FUTURE WITH MY HUSBAND.

HSV can lay dormant for many, many years. You may have had this virus before you met your husband. Once he is released, he should be tested to find out his status.
