I have and additional question. After getting this cold sore, I’ve read lot (maybe too much) about hsv. Hopefully it is just pregnancy anxiety and overthinking.
I have been in monogamous relationships with my husband for 15 years. He is the only sexual partner that I ever had. He had one sexual partner before me. We have never been tested for HSV. Neither of us ever had any genital symptoms. But we both have cold sores infrequently since teenage years. (So I’m assuming we’re both positive for hsv 1)
Is there a possibility that he could have gotten hsv 2 from his previous partner, passed it to me and we both stay asymptomatic for 15 years?
Is there a risk of the outbreak during delivery? Do we both need to get tested now, when I’m 35 weeks pregnant?
Thank you from overly anxious future mom!
