I'm going through something similar, just waiting on the test results now. From what I've researched, it's possible to have the virus in your body for months or even years without ever showing symptoms. It's possible you contracted it before your current partner, or it's possible they have it without realizing it and contracted it to you. I would get him to get the blood test done again just to be sure, even if he didn't have it before he could have gotten it from you now as well. What's really frustrating is 3 months ago I went to my doctor and asked for all STD testing. I didn't have symptoms of anything but I realize now that I didn't get a HSV blood test and now 3 months later I have the symptoms of an outbreak, so I have no way of know who I contracted it from or if I gave it to anyone else. so frustrating View Thread
