Re: why didnt I get herpes
I was just diagnosed with herpes 2, four days ago! My husband went to the doctors today to get tested. We've been together 6 years-no cheating and here I am. I will tell you that if he comes back negative, I obviously contracted it before we were together and never knew it. I am a nurse and I've done ALOT of reading from actual medical sites and the first outbreak sometimes mimics the flu. Achy, fever, joint pain... then it can go dormant for years. Herpes outbreaks are often mistaken for a pimple, a cut, or an irritation. It is very possible that your significant other has not cheated and had no idea she had herpes.
