So my results are in. The IgG test was definitive for HSV1 and not for HSV2. The swab test came back positive for herpes. So I now know that I in fact have HSV1 genital herpes. I’m perplexed at how it was contracted. I’ve been in a monogamous relationship (neither one of us has had any other partner for a long time). My partner was not symptomatic and never has any lesions (oral or genital). I, in the past have had oral herpes outbreak … terrible cold sores, but have not had any for over a year. Is it at all possible to contract HSV1 from me giving my partner oral sex, and then engaging in vaginal sex even though I was not symptomatic? Or could it be that he has HSV1, but does not show symptoms. I realize that there had an exchange of viral material, but I’m not certain how it occurred. I do realize that there is viral sloughing when someone is asymptomatic, but again when he’s never had a cold sore or genital sore, I’m perplexed.
