My new partner and I had SDI testing done at the beginning of our relationship and both came out negative. My testing didn't include herpes. After being together for 6 months, I developed a sore, had a swab test that was negative and bloodwork that came back positive for herpes 1 & 2. Since the diagnosis we are using a condom. My doctor gave me a prescription to use if I have another outbreak and we are waiting for him to get bloodwork tested again. I have read Good News About the Bad News which was very helpful but still have questions.
I have never had a cold sore so assume my type 1 virus is genital. I know that type 1 isn't as easily spread and wonder if him giving me oral sex is a thing of the past.View Thread
