I suspect that now that you are farther out from the original diagnosis that the friction of intercourse will be less likely to cause an outbreak as your immune system is more skilled at dealing with the virus. Usually, the case is that someone is NOT shedding but the friction of intercourse can cause the virus to become active, not the other way around.
If you don’t want to get HSV 2, ask your partners about testing. it is unlikely to have both types genitally, but it does happen. If you have already have HSV 1 then acquisition of HSV 2 could happen with either mild symptoms or none, that’s correct.
