I did confirm that I am HSV2 positive (though the location is not certain). Since it seems that I had contracted this before I met my husband (he is negative) 15 years ago. Can you please tell me:
1) What is the percentage for transmission to my husband after having this for so long (note: I am asymptomatic and have never noticed any outbreaks or a primary OB)? I believe I’ve read that the rate of shedding become less the longer you have the virus.
2) I’ve read that transmission typically occurs in the first 6 months of a new relationship. Why is this? And if I were to start a new relationship would this person be more susceptible transmission than my husband?
