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 it..is 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?View Thread
