herpe 1 and 2

Apr 30, 2015

is it possible that my boy friend do't have herpe and possible i do and we been dating for 9 years

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there Yes, many people have been exposed to either or both herpes 1 and herpes 2 but do not manifest the symptoms of the infection. Herpes can also be transmitted even when someone isn't having an outbreak so it can be hard to know when someone got infected and from whom. If he does not have antibodies to either than you acquired it before you two got together. take care dr. W
