Do you know the exact index value for the HSV 2? Has your boyfriend actually been tested for herpes antibody? It would be highly unlikely (though not impossible) for you to contract HSV 1 genitally after having it orally as a preteen.
If you had newly acquired HSV 2 from an asymptomatic partner, you would not yet have HSV 2 antibody.
If you were my patient, I would ask that your partner be tested for IgG antibody and see what he has and then try to make more sense of this. Remember that 80% of those infected with HSV 2 are not aware they are infected and may have no symptoms. Is he resistant to being tested?
