herpes and hiv

Question

I have had hiv for 2 years and my viral load is low and cd4 is high. im not on meds. I was just diagnosed with herpes type 2 by a blood test. I have had no symptoms of herpes. Is it easy for me to transfer herpes to my partner? I also have experianced a small amount of swelling in my gums that bleeds very little if i push on the swelling. is this associated with hiv of herpes? thank you

Answer

What was the exact test that was performed on your blood sample? It is not clear from your description that you actually have an acute case of HSV2 or just past evidence of exposure.
